Homecoming coverLetter NNik is a physician, but not an esper Healer. He is R’il’noid, but he can’t quite teleport by himself. His empathic talents, however are exceptionally good. Physically he is rather small, with red hair, freckles, and light green eyes with gold veining. He is sterile and has no interest in sex, but he is expert at straightening out problem children and usually is fostering one or two for the Genetics Board.

He is half brother to Lai and Derik, and since he is close to Lai in age the two have grown up together and are close friends. His home is on Seabird Island, which makes him a close neighbor of Vara, Coryn’s mother. In Homecoming he is handed the job of nursing Roi through a very bad case of Kharfun syndrome, and he is speaking from that part of the book.

Roi may be my nephew, but I’m sure not connecting with him. That mirror shield …. Where’d he learn that? And he doesn’t trust me at all. I wouldn’t even have known he was conscious and able to move a little if Florian hadn’t pulled that stunt.

Well, at least he seems willing to learn. Wish I could be sure he’d understood my instructions on how to reverse the Kharfun paralysis, but he must have, or he wouldn’t be able to move as well as he does. I’d still feel better if he’d let me into his mind to show him what to do. Or let his father connect with him.

I wish I could keep him here while his father’s gone, but he and Florian …. Well, either Florian’s going to wind up killing him, or he’ll kill Florian in self-defense. And emotionally, Florian needs help more than Roi does.

Still, I’m not sure Tyndall’s the best option for him right now. Sure, it’s a good school. A great school. But the competition’s pretty fierce, and with Roi so far behind his age group, and in a float chair besides …. I hope the hazing’s let up from what I remember.

I’m doing my A to Z blogs from my books, both characters and background information. For characters I’ll introduce them quickly, say what point of time they’re talking from since their situations change drastically through the books, and let them talk. The format of background information will vary according to what I’m talking about. Bold type indicates that more information has been or will be available in another A to Z post. All of these blogs will be scheduled to go live just after midnight Alaska time.
