Annabel and Rick need the rest of their
Firefly crew friends on site. Face claims are obviously non-negotiable.
SAUL CROAKER | 32 | OPEN AFFILIATION | NATHAN FILLION
Like Rick still is and Anna used to be, Saul is an unspeakable. He’s also Rick’s closest friend. Blunt and to the point, he hasn’t been the best at helping Rick cope with his grief after Anna “died.” He’s more the type to take Rick out for a drink and not notice the burgeoning alcoholism that his friend is sinking into. Saul isn’t a bad guy - in fact, he has a soft spot for Anna, and likely took her death pretty hard in secret - he’s just a little bit on the gruff side.
BILLIUS WEASLEY | 32 | ORDER MEMBER | ALAN TUDYK
Having met on the train to Hogwarts as first years, Annabel and Billius have a long standing, close friendship. Anna and Rick were in the same social circle in school despite their different houses, and Billy - as Anna called him - was right there with them. These two were very close, and while he’s a naturally cheerful person, he’s still coming to terms with the fact that one of his best friends is gone. After Brodie, it’s him that probably misses her the most. But he, at least, has a support system in his lovely non-wife, Mariah. Being a little eccentric - and because canon says Billius never married - these two are monogamous life partners, but see no point in making it official with a trip down the aisle.
MARIAH SPINNET | 30 | ORDER MEMBER | GINA TORRES
Mariah was in Hufflepuff, a year behind Annabel. She was a bit of a late comer to Anna’s group of friends - the two women only became close after Mariah came to work on the Experimental Charms Committee with Annabel. She’s the one who officially introduced Mariah to Billius, and the two of them have been together almost ever since. Mariah isn’t interested in marriage or having children (the reason is up to you), but she and Billius live together and are essentially married. They’re both fighting Order members, and while Anna’s “death” had nothing to do with the war, it certainly has Mariah contemplating her own mortality. She and Billius try and be there for Rick as much as they can these days, and are starting to get concerned with his drinking.
PRIYA KHAN | 28 | NEUTRAL | MORENA BACCARIN
Annabel has three very best friends: Laurentia Fletwock, Billius Weasley, and Priya Khan. Priya was the latest to enter Anna’s life, but they had an almost instantaneous connection. The only non-Hogwarts grad of the group, Priya is relatively new to England. She works for the Ministry for the Department of International Magical Cooperation. She’s essentially something of a diplomat, and that’s the stance she takes towards the war. This isn’t her country, and she isn’t getting involved. That being said, she loves the Bodes dearly, and while she mourned her friend’s passing, it didn’t cripple her ability to go on with her life. She’s trying to help Rick move on and let go of his grief, but she’s failing in that regard, and he’s only pushing her away more - since she was Anna’s friend, she’s a constant reminder of what he lost.
LILA CROAKER | 24 | OPEN AFFILIATION | SUMMER GLAU
Lila is really only connected to the group of friends because she’s Saul’s little sister. There isn’t much of an existing relationship between her and the Bodes outside of Saul. However, Lila is a seer who is still coming into her gift. She isn’t always sure what to make of her visions and prophecies, and the ones she’s been having of Annabel Bode still being alive are throwing her for a loop. For now, she’s kept them to herself, not wanting to upset Anna’s husband or her brother, but they’re getting stronger, and she feels the need to tell somebody.
BENEDICT WARBECK | 65 | OPEN AFFILIATION | RON GLASS
Old Ben is the Head Unspeakable in the Department of Mysteries. He’s the one who trained up Saul, Rick, and Anna. He isn’t the effusive type to view his protege as his children or anything, but he likes working with them and thinks they’re good people. He has some residual guilt over Anna’s death, having been the one to sign off on the expedition in the first place. And he’s keeping a close eye on Rick to make sure he’s still capable of doing the job without his wife. Fun fact: Ben is married to Celestina Warbeck, singer of such songs as [i]A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love.[/i] Have fun with that.
AUGUSTUS ROOKWOOD | 27 | DEATH EATER | ADAM BALDWIN
Another Unspeakable, Augustus has been a Death Eater since he got out of school. He’s a halfblood, so you can get creative with the reasoning. He always had a difficult time working with Annabel because he was supposed to hate her for being muggleborn, but dangit if she isn’t really hard to actively hate. She confused him, and it was more of a relief than anything when she died. He’s interested in recruiting for the almighty cause and is hoping Rick’s grief and anger can be used as a catalyst to bring the blood traitor over to the “right” side of things.
