Dunno if I told you already or not, but Dalia Ravenstone has two moms and a dad. One of her moms, Nizoni, is trans and is Dalia's biological father. The other mom (Morgana) is intersex. So yeah, her parents are a poly triad.

Also her dad, Orpheus, is most likely cis male but doesn't subscribe to stereotypical masculinity. In one scene I had to cut out, the three of them are at a party and dancing, all three taking turns switching dance roles. To imagine parts of it, imagine the scenes in Addams Family where Morticia and Gomez are dancing, but the gender roles swapped. :)

I hope I can find somewhere else to do the same thing in the story. :)

Yay!

That sounds cool.

Re: Yay!

I'm also going for a variety of... not sure how to word this without saying something ableist like "deformities" or "imperfections," but like... Nizoni is covered in dozens of scars all over her body, including her face and hands. Like, not one or two cute scars, either. LOTS of scars, from working with dangerous wild animals. She's the kind of person who, while she could get the scars healed away with magic, doesn't want to. She likes scars.

In that same vein, Dalia was born missing one of her feet, Orpheus's mom is blind in one eye, and his fraternal twin sibling is albino.

Orpheus is a black man so thin he almost looks sickly. But he's quite healthy. I keep picturing him looking like the vampire Mr. Trick from Buffy the vampire slayer, but kinder looking. Also, Orpheus dresses like a 60's hippie.

Morgana, also black, looks the most normal of the three of them but loves wearing different colored/shaped lenses in her eyes (well, probably more likely glamours). So in some scenes her eyes are completely black, or have catlike pupils, or crosshairs, and so on. And I just had an interesting idea: might have her file her teeth to points. (Oh wait, no, she could use magic to do that without damaging them.) LOL OMG thinking of this one scene with a neighbor who's an unpleasant Christian witch makes me want to do that for sure! Have her grin at the woman, unsettle her. :D
