I know you really want me to tell you about myself or something, but honestly, I just don’t want to. So… yeah….

Hey everyone! I’m Emile. My sister Amelia and I are seventeen. We are Nephilim, the children of the angels that fell with Lucifer. Our parent’s repented, so we aren’t bound to Hell… It’s a long story. Anyway, now we are Guardians. We are assigned Charges, humans who are destined to do important things, and we make sure they stay alive to do them. Well, my siblings and I will be Guardians, most of us are still training. There are me and my twin sister, Amelia, my little brother Olivier, and his girlfriend Yellaina. Noland has finished his training, he is our leader, and is officially a Guardian.
I moved to New York City from France when I was twelve to study under Jacob, Yellaina’s dad. He is a great teacher. He has trained me, not only to wield weapons but also how to use my gift. I can feel other people’s emotions. I’m still learning how to control it, and hone in and narrow it down to tell who is feeling what… It is easier with people I know. One day I will be able to read people a lot easier, until then, I’m training hard and shadowing Noland to see how to be the best Guardian I can be.

As we say goodbye to summer, and hello to my favorite season (Hello Fall!), I want to just take a moment to look back at the highlights and be thankful for all the good times the summer brought.
I had the opportunity to go sailing my friends Dave and Katie:
Ah, peace and serenity…. Yeah?
I got to see one of my favorite groups, For King and Country in concert on the waterfront at Festival Park.
Got to spend some quality time with Dude here. Summer thunderstorms mean plenty of mud wrestling with the b-a-l-l!
Sunset bike rides along the water.
And lets not forget I FINISHED WRITING TRANSGRESSION!
So even in the summer heat I had plenty to be thankful for!
I have to say though, Fall is my favorite and I am definitely ready for pumpkin, sweaters and whatever the season has in store for me!
I’m Yellaina! I’m originally from Russia but I moved to the US with my dad when I was ten. I’m a bit of a closet nerd. I really love, shopping, clothes, and makeup, but I secretly love history and reading anything I can get my hands on, especially if it is in a foreign language. That’s kind of my thing. I love languages.
I’m technically a Nephilim since your father’s heritage wins out, and my dad is a Nephilim. But my mom was a Cherubim. I’m not going to lie, I relate to them a lot more. I’m not into the whole training and violence thing. I would much rather record battles than fight in them. My friends are the strong ones. Amelia is absolutely fearless. Her brother Emile is so compassionate, but don’t let that fool you, he is a fierce fighter. I’m dating their younger brother, Olivier. He is the strongest person I’ve ever met. Most people think that is Noland. But I think it’s Olly. He has always kind of been overlooked by most people, but he handles even that so well.
Then there’s my new friend Achaia, now she is a fiery little warrior. She is intimidatingly fierce. I wouldn’t stand between her and what she’s after. That’s my family for now…
