NaNoWriMo Day 6: Meet Jassa Krola

So, let’s see, today I woke up, showered, saw Bohemian Rhapsody with a friend (great movie, by the way), voted, saw a few friends off on their road trip, had a rehearsal for the Christmas play I’m in, wrote a good amount of words, and now I’m blogging.  It’s been a busy day for me.

So far this month, I’ve shared the plot of the story and gave you an excerpt.  But now, I would like to share some information about one of the main characters of this year’s NaNoWriMo novel!

Meet Jassa Krola, one of the primary protagonists of Mistcraft.


Name: Jassalyn Krola

Nickname: Jassa

Age: 13

Hair: Worn long, loose, blonde with silver highlights

Skin: Tan

Favorite color: Yellow

Favorite Music: The Celestial Choir

Favorite Food: Fruit sweets

Likes: Sunshine, her friends, her brother, her family, her aura, the warm glow of a fire, breakfast, sweets, boys, watching swordplay

Dislikes: Telvin (a boy who made fun of her before she manifested), sour foods, broken dolls, when girls are mistreated

Most prized possession: Her mother’s seashell pendant

Why?: It’s all she owns of her mother’s

Personality flaws: Timid, thinks of what others think of her too much

Personality strengths: Integrity, desire to always do what’s right

Jassa always knew that she was an angel, and awaited the day she experienced her first manifestation, her angelic aura.  She’s a girl on the very cusp of young adulthood, and with it comes the human changes as well as the angelic ones.  But that doesn’t staunch her increasing rise in popularity with the other people at her school and neighborhood.

But with the angelic power is a strange power growing inside of her, one that she’s discovering and is frightened of.  She knows that nacres are hated and hunted.  She knows that mistcraft is illegal.  But the power to use energetic mist to fuel her ability to fill things with mistcraft power is becoming too strong.  She hides this power from her family.

Meanwhile, Rike, her younger brother, is beginning to show the signs of his first angelic manifestation himself.  As she helps him come to terms with his powers as an angel, she prays to Thane-Na that he doesn’t begin to show nacre power himself.  She just wants to live her life in peace.

Jassa is an angel, the daughter of a human and a celestial.  With that comes angelic manifestations like her aura and her wings.  But in the part of the story I just wrote, she learned that her mother was a nacre, the name given to people who practice the art of mistcraft, the use of energetic mist to fuel magical power.  She has that power too.  A lot is changing in her life, and it scares her.

Current word count for Mistcraft: 18,777/50,000!

Until next time,
