“If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”
– William Shakespeare
Dacen and his twin sister Cleo were born in Hanging Hills and grew up with their folks in a small house that wasn't, in and of itself, unusual. Both children were sickly from the time that they were very young and their parents were very protective of them, keeping them sheltered, cared for, and home schooled through most of their young lives. The result was a lot of torment for Dacen from local kids who considered the creepy homeschooled kids weirdos worthy of their particularly unpleasant attention. There were plenty of rumors about the family, after all, their father was an Abernathy. Now, Dacen is a student attending college in Fallcoast studying Biochemistry and Botany. He also runs Ghostly Vines, an apothecary and tea room. Cleo used to tell fortunes there, until she left town for a while to stay with an ill relative to help out with some family business.
