Full name: Elizabeth Jimmson (Despite being married and then widowed, she always kept her maiden name, with the view that loving someone dearly need not change your entire identity.)
Next of Kin: Eric, son (missing), and Inspector Jimmson Jimmson, brother.
Age: That’s not a very tactful question for anyone to ask, in her opinion.
Favourite Colour: Does one need a favourite colour? She believes it changes depending on her mood, yet the brighter, the better.
Likes: Gardening, baking, teaching, hands-on work. Helping Thordric reach his magical potential.
Dislikes: Being addressed formally and treated differently simply because her younger brother is the Inspector of the local stationhouse. People who like to complain for the sake of complaining.
Life goals: To be reunited with her son, though she knows after so many years it is unlikely. Also to discover what the cause of her husband’s death really was, even if the truth is dark.
Most embarrassing moment: She doesn’t have embarrassing moments, only mild hiccups in her daily routine.

Full name: Thordric Manfred Smallchance
Next of Kin: Maggie Smallchance, mother
Age: 14 1/2
Favourite colour: Red
Likes: Learning new things and how to control his magic, feeling included, painting, his mentor’s (Lizzie’s) cooking, trying to grow a beard…
Dislikes: Being bullied or made fun off, not being taken seriously, watching his mother carry out postmortems in her morgue, the current state of the Wizard Council.
Life goals: To prove that his magic isn’t dangerous, to have the same opportunities as others his age, to create new spells and potions, and to see half-wizards treated with the same respect as full wizards.
Most embarrassing moment: Too many to count, but having Lizzie catch him naked and then offer him fluffy pink towels to cover up always sticks prominently in his mind.
