On Common Ground
Meet the characters
. . . ✍ . . .
Officer Grace Rayne
Publicly, Rayne is a young officer on the city’s police force holding ground against gang violence. Her private life is slightly more chaotic. Grace shares her home with her brooding guardian angel, who is in love with her, and the half-breed son of an incubus.
“What the hell am I going to do if I have to shoot him? I don’t even know if it would work!”
Officer Tom Miller
Officer Miller has been on the force for several years and has an excellent record. He is partnered with Grace Rayne and they are friends both on and off duty. She even attended his wedding to Celeste, his high school sweetheart. Tom and Celeste are currently expecting a baby.
“Mr. Nezbit, I’d like to see some identification.”
. . . ✍ . . .
Gabe has been a Guardian Angel for 800 years, a clean record of over a hundred lifetime assignments and countless demon slayings, but sometimes, the Rules don’t all make sense. And Grace is unlike any other assignment he’s ever had. His world turns inside out when he realizes he’s in love with his assignment, his best friend is out to castrate his powers and kill him, and one of his roommates is a half-breed demon!
“Damned angels, never have any fun.”
Micheal is one of the Heavenly Host and has worked diligently to move up the ranks. He now supervises several Guardian Angels, and has his sights on being a member of the Angelic Guard. He doesn’t let his own goals get in the way of his duties, though, or of his friends. A good leader shows the way, leading by example. Micheal strives to embody the Rules and expects the Rules from those below him, for how else will they succeed?
“I wasn’t sent. I volunteered.”
. . . ✍ . . .
Luke is the child of a teenage pregnancy. Fortunately, his mother came from a loving, comfortable family that took care of them both. Early on, she cautioned him about using his powers where anyone could see. Luke’s grandparents couldn’t find out that he’d been sired by an incubus. His mother gave him all the love she had, and raised him to be kindhearted, thoughtful, and generous. She’d hoped to prevent him from falling into evil. She never expected evil to come looking for them.
“Thanks for coming to the barbecue. Sorry that the relatives got out of hand.”
Nezbit is an incubus demon with plans and schemes. He, along with others, has a plan to slowly bring back the chaos that once allowed demons to act more freely, with less interruption from those un-damned angels. This is a covert plan that requires delicacy and subtlety. Being disclosed too soon would ruin everything. Naturally, a simple mistake threatens either the plan or Nezbit’s power and authority. He should have been more careful, but the foolish virgin smelled so appetizing…
“You, delicious morsel that you may be, are becoming a nuisance.”
