Consuela Guevara, FBI Wage Mage
- Consuela trained for field work as an Awakened investigator
with the FBI. Although she has done some field work, she
was assigned to the Seattle FBI department responsible for coordinating
interstate fugitive pursuits in the Seattle area. She
has established a good working rapport with the local police
and security agencies. She met Etienne when he was pursuing
Raffee into Seattle across state and international borders.
She and Etienne hit it off pretty well and they have had some
passionate encounters, but the relationship is still extremely
casual, which suits them both.
Jean Baptiste Boudreaux,
Gator Shaman Restaurateur. Jean is Etienne's Uncle or
"Noncle." Jean owns a cajun restaurant in the Upper Queen
Anne Hill neighborhood just northwest of downtown Seattle.
He lets Etienne stay in a loft apartment above the restaurant.
Uncle Jean served in the army and mustered out of nearby Ft.
Lewis. He knew a couple of friends with money to invest
so decided to set up house in Seattle and open up his restaurant.
His business is doing very well. The abundance of non
soy items on the menu brings in a lot of high class clientele
that are eager to throw off the shackles of fashion, put on
a plastic bib, and sit down to a steaming tub of crawfish in
a relaxed atmosphere. Jean likes his nephew Etienne, but
he does have a family and a business to look after.
Mama Tina - a Gator Shaman in Bayou
Lafourche, Louisiana. She lives deep in the bayou.
Mama Tina helped teach Etienne to use magic. She helps
