She never meant to be a hero...
In fact, Dreckly Jones has made a point her whole life to be exactly notthat. The daughter of a forbidden union between an earth elemental and a selkie, her rare powers have meant she has always had a target on her back.
So Dreckly - a 40-something oyster shucker according to her fake documents, 140-something sprite if you're going to get all nit-picky about it - has become an expert at many things. Chief amongst them: hiding.
When she meets a determined group of rebels who desperately need her help, she finds herself wanting to stick her neck out for the first time in a long while. Yet is she ready to be noticed? Is Dreckly willing to use her powers to stand up when it could cost her everything?
