A teenage Earthborn street magician with a lust for adventure, her unique healing qualities betray the broody and apathetic demeanour she tries so hard to hide behind
For Demitra Hecataki, home has always been the busy streets of Athens, Greece, showcasing her card tricks and petty illusions to the tourists of Syntagma Square. The middle child of a working-class family, she regularly feels ignored and unappreciated, and her father – once her hero – is rarely around anymore. She can be blunt with her words and rash with her actions, but these are nothing more than a defense mechanism, and it has cost her the respect of friends and audiences in the past.
When a strange crystal suddenly presents itself to Demi on the night of her fourteenth birthday celebrations, the focus of this boring life shifts completely. Having spent her childhood dreaming of fighting sea monsters with pirate brethren or uncovering deadly controversies with fellow international spies, or even undertaking great odysseys on behalf of Mighty Zeus, she will soon find herself caught up in a damning conspiracy she has not bargained for, and will have to adapt quickly to survive. The crystal has granted her tremendous power in Octavia, but it is a race against time to unlock its true worth, and discover her role in the events to come.
She has been Chosen…
FUN FACT: Demi has a better relationship with her housecat, Mr Jiggers, than she does with most people.
