Tam-Lin is a relatively obscure personality operating in and around Millennium City. She does not identity as a 'hero' and instead uses the term 'adventurer'. Most people familiar with the name believe she is a staunch atheist out to disprove the existence of every magical phenomena. Those 'in the know' are aware that she is actually just a mischievous little troll; both literally and figuratively.

Tam-Lin is a caustic, acerbic little girl to those outside of her circle. She carries herself in a superior, haughty manner and treats most people as beneath her. Once someone has gotten past this barrier (a process which is not entirely understood), she can be quite agreeable and refined. Her habit of stirring up trouble may stem from her people's more mischievous (and at times malicious) side, which tends to be common among Faerie creatures. She also seems to fully embrace the modern-day pastime of 'internet trolling'. As an adult, Tammy is much more sociable and friendly though still eccentric and a bit odd.
As a young Scandinavian troll, Tammy has several features common to trolls from that region, such as her prominent nose, thick nails, and lion-like tail. When among mundane people she prefers to keep her tail hidden or pass it off as a mutation rather than reveal her heritage.
Her taste in clothing is unusual for a teenage girl, as she prefers a more 'dapper dan' look; Button-up shirts, bow-ties, and slacks clash with brightly colored stockings and eclectic bits of 'Tomorrowland' influenced accessories.
Tam-Lin possesses the normal abilities of a small troll, the most notable of which is her remarkable strength which matches that of a grown man. Her remarkable intelligence seems to be a trait all her own or perhaps inherited from her mother.
The young scientist has created a multitude of inventions and concoctions that, by rights, should not actually work. It is theorized that the missing component in each of her devices is her own innate magical ability, which she substitutes subconsciously.
Changelin has encountered numerous fantasy species on her ventures into Faerie. Here are but a few of them!
The sheep-people of Ver Weg are hard working, cowardly folk who prefer to live in rural farming villages where they grow vegetables and flowers. Their major exports aside from foodstuffs are colored dyes and their own wool, which is believed to be better quality than that of normal sheep. While they don't lack intelligence, Sheeple are simple people with simple interests and instinctively prefer to follow and do what they're told. Combined with their skittish nature they have garnered an undeserved reputation of being dimwitted.
Sheeple are led by a group of village elders, which may be male or female, who handle local governing, resolve disputes, and make community-wide decisions. Although all elders are intended to be equal, inevitably one ends up being in charge as the others subconsciously act on their need to follow. When something more serious comes up the Sheeple turn to their race's protector, a wizard named Shepherd. Recently it has been revealed that 'Shepherd' is a title and not a person's name, suggesting that many wizards have been the Shepherd of the Sheeple.
Sheeple are somewhat smaller than a mundane sheep if it were stood up on it's hind legs. Even the largest of them is still shorter than the average human. Like many ovids, Sheeple grow thick wool across much of their bodies which they sheer and weave into clothing or sell in bulk. Many Sheeple prefer to grow out the wool on their heads and style it much like human hair, with afro puffs being common.
