Character type: Holder
Appearance: Aton is the antithesis of his sister Renaus; he is tall, blond, and blue eyed. He is fair-skinned and prone to burning like his sister, but most of the similarity ends there. His arms are well muscled and he is fairly handsome in a rustic sort of way. With a ready smile, shining eyes, and a good body, it's not a wonder that so many people look his way more than once.
Personality: Aton makes friends easily and never understood why his little sister didn't. In fact, he wondered why his sister was so totally opposite from everyone else he knew from a young age. Where he was popular, she was tagging along friendless; while he liked to run around a play games, she liked to run off and be alone. Eventually he chalked her behavior up to being a girl.
History: Aton is the elder of two children born to Ashkiem and Gacyet. His parents decided to move south when he was about five Turns, far too young for him to understand the reasoning behind it. He thought it might have something to do with having another baby taking his place, and a girl at that! What was the matter with them?

Appearance: Thief has larger eyes than most flits, and larger forepaws. From his snout to the tip of his tail runs a dark streak, while the rest of him is a sandy dun.
Personality: Thief earned his name. If he can pick it up, he'll steal it, be it food, a trinket, or anything else. He's rather secretive about his cache, keeping it in a hidden corner under Aton's bed. Thief also likes attention, and will steal that from anyone available.
