Aurin Fireblossom has had a multitude of names in past lives, but each of them usually inherits the penchant for the uses of volatile mixtures and chemicals. The most recent incarnation woke up to a world with magic returning and faint memories of it having bled out of the world after the Races of Destiny worked hard to purge the world of magical dangers to the point of becoming so obsessed about destroying magic as a danger that they removed it from the world, almost.
While knowing very little about the gods and outsiders disconnections from the prime material plane, Aurin became a saboteur given that the uses and methods of making money with unstable explosives and dangerous chemicals are rather few in number.
After a few years of jumping from job to job, shi wound up competing with another team on a contract which the other team’s contract paid the same on a per person basis and to thwart the cheapskate trying to use hir as a way to cut costs either in success or just taking out a few competitors Aurin joined the team anyway. The team at first simply refered to hir as ‘Aurin’ from the species name, which Aurin adopted along with what seemed like a suitable second name to fit in. Of course, after a bit longer ‘fuzzy’ just kinda stuck as a nickname due to being a rare fey with furry bits.
Now with the rest of hir team missing, Aurin has fallen into the employ of the Academy working in Seal Team Six to prevent the unleashing of an End of Times event.
Good luck Fireblossom, you will need it.
