Defining Description or Bio Edit

Rory Crowther is the only human living at the Rokkery.


Rory has a trace of the Animal People blood in him, but not quite enough to live full-time in their world. He has a difficult time accepting the unexplainable, and when faced with something that cannot be explained without accepting the existence of magic, it will simply fade from his memory after a short time.
