Short tempered little Otos is a Saw Whet Owl with extraordinary abilities of carrying light, dimensional travel (on rare occassion) and flesh tearing 'tickle time' with her talons. Always on sharp lookout (unless distracted by likely prey or a juicy ball of flame) Otos can seem at first an easily irritated and spacey raptor, but she can become a close and diligent companion if given the chance.
What of carrying light? Otos can crystalize and flatten her feathery plump body. Creating sheaths of plumage made of durable glass that shimmers to the flame carried within her hollowed out bulbous head that also doubles as her eyes.
A slight jinx, Lumilock can at inopportune times launch herself (or unsuspecting guests nearby) into another world through a golden light strewn portal through flapping her wings. It is a rare occurrence and it is how she met Shiftre, the character of Allison VanOtterdyk, a friendly stitched up blue doll who can shapeshift and has a knotted past.
