We’re back with more character birthdays from The Dragon Prince. Like we’ve mentioned before, we decided on birthdays by seeing how different characters fit into different astrological signs (even though we’re not sure astrology exists in Xadia) and how those signs matched up with other signs, and then chose exact dates based on Wonderstorm employees, loved ones, etc!
For February, we’re celebrating the birthdays of Kazi and Ellis!
Kazi – February 10
Kazi is sometimes so caught up in their studies that they forget their own birthday. The first reminder is usually the arrival of a special gift box from their sometimes-too-doting parents, filled with baked treats and brand new books. Kazi has usually read the books already, but they still appreciate mom and dad’s efforts!
Once they’ve actually remembered their impending day of birth celebration, Kazi likes to keep it low-key. They treat themself to a dinner out with good friends and colleagues, complete with one of Lux Aurea’s greatest specialties: flambéed fire cake! It’s a stack of chocolate and marshmallows prepared by a mage, so it arrives literally on fire! What’s not to love?
Ellis – February 15
Ellis’ family has never been wealthy, but they don’t pinch coins when it comes to birthdays. Ellis used to look forward to a big feast with her family, especially the winter berry pie her mother kept cooling on the table all day long, making her mouth water (ever since Ava ate the whole pie in one bite, though, she’s moved it to the windowsill).
This year, though, Ellis is growing up a bit: she’s getting old enough to know that she doesn’t want her family to struggle on her behalf. So they agree to a smaller meal, and Ellis helps prepare the winter berry pie. The real treat, though, is her parents’ permission to go help the local animal doctor at his shop for a day. They used to think it was too dangerous (‘you’ll get kicked in the head by a horse,’ her father would say), but well… Ellis has proven that she can handle danger.
