Almost large enough to be considered a theme park while remaining free to the public, Terrace Park is rumored to have been the site of the Grand Hollowheart's defeat, leading to the Hollowhearts first accepting a pact with humans. (+2 Fame, +2 Endurance)

Daxon, Bellatrix, Cyra, Vixen

"But how did you get her here?"
The family lounging around the picnic blanket looked very out of place for Terrace Park. The boy grinned at the lady sitting next to him in a cheongsam. "I cast a spell on her lab. She can't get in unless I release it. Or else the place goes 'boom'."
The young woman raised an eyebrow. "You're going to destroy her lab?" she asked. The girl lying on her belly behind her chirped in a sing-song voice, "She's going to kill you." The boy glared at her around the first woman. "I said it's only if she tries to get in, why do you two never have faith in me?"
"You have a pretty poor track record," the woman said bluntly. The girl giggled and nodded vehemently. 'No kidding', she mouthed.
Across from them, a woman barely any older than the trio was bent over a small bowl in her lap into which she was emptying a vial. The boy frowned and tossed a piece of grass that barely fluttered into her face. She batted it away absently.
"Oh come on, mom. We're supposed to be having a family picnic here. Put the potion away," he complained. The woman didn't respond.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May all your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Neither of the other girls seemed to be paying any attention as their brother tried to get their mother to abandon her project. The woman looked around, "why Terrace Park, though? It's so...mundane," she muttered. He looked back over at her with a laugh. "Because, Ix, if we were anywhere else, you'd be off looking for some new relic."
"If anyone else called me that..."
"But I'm not anyone else."

She turned to her sister. "And what did he do to get you to come, Cyra?" she asked. Cyra flopped her head into her arms and looked up sideways in a cute manner. "He asked, and I'm a nice sister," she said sweetly. He leaned back and said quietly to Bellatrix, "It helped that I promised to give her a couple frilly dresses I found." She laughed and shook her head in grim understanding. "I'm guessing they were pink?" He looked at her with an expression of mock seriousness.
"Actually, they were purple."
"But of course."
"I can tell you're making fun of me," Cyra chirped indignantly.

Bellatrix gave a kind of smirk that seemed to be her version of a smile. Her brother was all grins as he winked at their little sister. "Ah, but only 'cause we love you Cy."
At this point their mother finally looked up, her expression one of irritation.
"You are all being really noisy. Go play somewhere else, I'm working," she snapped. Daxon laughed while Bellatrix shook her head.

"Story of our childhood," Cyra muttered as Daxon leaned back towards their mother. "You're not supposed to be working, mom." The lady known as Vixen scowled and wagged her hand as if shooing away some insects.

"Besides, we're not children anymore," Cyra pouted, her cheek pushing up against her fist as she tried to look simultaneously cute and angry. Bellatrix casually raised a hand and jabbed her little sister, knocking her over. Cyra whined in response, pulling herself back up to whine again more pointedly at the elder. "I don't know, you seem rather childlike to me," Bellatrix teased gently. Cyra opened her mouth to counter and faltered when she couldn't come up with anything. She pouted when her sister laughed.

Ignoring the girls, mother and son were busy bickering.
"I have a set of potions due in two days!" Vixen hissed accusingly, "and someone shut me out of my lab!" Daxon scoffed and rolled his eyes.
"Oh please, mother. You always have potions due and everyone knows you do as you like with the deadlines. Unfortunately for us, it's only when it suits your own plans," he said. Vixen drew herself up indignantly. "Th-that's not true. I have a very good reputation," she spluttered.
"Come on, mom, spend some time with your kids."
"Not enough time for that, besides, I didn't ask to be a mother."
"Yes," he sighed, "we know."

It was true that it was no secret that Vixen had no interest in her children. Only she and the kids' father seemed to know what exactly happened back then, but all anyone else knew was that it had to do with a potions experiment gone wrong. No one who knew Vixen's testing methods was surprised. Ever since, Vixen had blatantly ignored her children and refused to accept any request for love potions.

Daxon, now grappling with her for the potion materials, was the only one who saw much of his mother. And that was only because he had rather powerful magic and Jaden herself told Vixen that he was her responsibility. Whatever things happened because of Dax, was automatically his mother's fault - unfortunately, things happened all the time.

Bellatrix and Cyra, on the other hand, didn't seem to mind much that their mother didn't care. The elder sister had little to no magic to speak of, but has an aptitude for discovering and utilizing magical artifacts. She would occasionally sneak into her mother's library (with her brother's help) to scour the shelves for information about such objects. As she grew older, she managed to create her own library and opened a museum/shop for all things magical. As far as she was concerned, she did all that without her mother and therefore had as much interest in the woman as she got in return. Daxon was the only reason she was still a part of their family - she quite loved her brother.

The younger sister was already a little unusual to begin with. Her elder siblings didn't know what to make of her as children so she spent quite a bit of time on her own and was quite happy to do so. With an active imagination, her favourite game of pretending to be a fairy combined with her magical powers, wound up making her one special teenager - one who honestly believed she was supposed to actually be a fairy. Never mind that she only thought of them in their stereotypical pink/purple frilly, sparkly poof-ness. Not one to let his sister go off her own way, Daxon constantly uses her interests against her, bribing her into spending a lot of time with her family.

There was another brother, Hades, who was actually Bellatrix's identical twin, but special circumstances surrounded him and he was incapable of having any bond with his biological family. He was still cordial and friendly for the most part, however.

At some point, food had appeared. No one seemed to have noticed until Cyra exclaimed that the cupcakes she was eating was particularly delicious. Though each of their reactions were different, it was clear to everyone that Cyra had magically made the food. Cookies, cupcakes, and candy were strewn all over the blanket. Little teacups and saucers sat among them, looking as though they'd been snatched from the tea party of some 4 year-old girl.

Bellatrix smirked again, ignoring the sweets and picking up a teacup to taste the liquid inside. Finding that it was actually regular tea, she settled in to watch the others. Daxon had successfully wrested the materials from his mother and with a wave of his hand made them vanish.
"I better get those back the way they were before," Vixen warned him. Daxon looked offended, but before he could say anything his mother sighed and seemed to give up. Turning to the food, she picked up some cookies and absentmindedly congratulated her daughter on a successful spell - if not an overly...pink one.

Daxon looked around at his family, who finally seemed to grasp the concept of the 'family picnic' and were now chatting like normal people. With eyes glittering, he jumped forward and snatched up some food, knocking over a teacup in the process and gaining several complaints as he laughed.
