General Description

Her brother Shaun was a student at Whateley, class of 2001. After a stint in the army he came home in 2004. Tegan had been living on her own off and on. Her mother is terminally ill, her father passed away in 2002. She took is death hard. Living on the streets for one summer, she came home but would stay out late with her friends. She discovered dance and raves at an early age. Her mother and brother paid for her to take dance lessons, seeing as she had a talent for it. Thinking that she could help her friends with their troubles and school work, she took to reading her brother's text books, studying magic. She stopped when a spirit named “Emu” contacted her. Then one day she manifested in the kitchen. She is the avatar of a sphinx, like her brother. Unlike her brother she has GSD. She has the arms and legs of a lion, her paws splay out, but the lack of dexterity almost ruined her dancing.

After several talks with her brother, and visit to her mother's bedside, she was on a train to Whateley. Her brother took a job as a security guard for the Army to pay for their mothers medical bills and now has to pay her Whateley tuition, putting aside dreams of a sports car to put her through school. She loves boys, girls and making friends. But now she wants to repay her family and be a social worker. Her brother applauds her civil spirit, but warns her to get good grades first (and use protection). For her part, Tegan want to study hard and party harder until graduation. She's a good friend to her roommate Amanda Jones, providing a shoulder for the roach girl to cry on. She volunteers at Hawthorne, making friends there too.

Her biggest sets backs are two fold. Shaun made his mark on Whateley alright, “Darth” Shaun was a prankster and minor bully who almost got expelled. Mrs. Carson told Tegan in no uncertain terms that she is NOT to repeat his behavior. Tegan is doing her best to stay on the straight and narrow but like her brother, she has an eye for the boys, the girls and any other student who strikes her fancy. She wants to avoid a love triangle (polygon really) like that one that almost doomed her brother, but now she's torn between a girl she's madly in love with and a boy who's a sweetheart. Meanwhile she was debt to a Gloria, the cousin to one of Shaun's ex-boyfriends. She wanted to take revenge on Tegan for what her brother did to her cousin. Thanks to Outfox, she's free of that contract.

After the Empty Dreams events, Tegan has grown committed to her magical studies. She was forced to cut back on her job and her volunteer hours. Her eating disorder is in remission -for now. Her brother is worried that she may be pushing herself too far. Mrs. Grimes and Dr. Tenant are proud to see Tegan buckle down. She has fallen hard for Subtle, helping the new girl blossom.

She is the founder and leader of the Gatekeepers. She is leaving Circle-S as soon as she finds a mage for Summoner's team. Till then she's on an 'as needed' basis.


Tegan Wissa favors scene girl or raver looks. Her GSD
gives her sphinx traits: paws, arms, legs ears and tail of a lion.
She has a lot of salvation army clothes and hand-me downs.
Her brother gave her his old rubber army MOPP boots, as her regular
shoes no longer fit her. She'd rather go barefoot, but the weather
can be rough on her paws. She has a pentacle tattoo and a navel piercing.


She is a mage. Her power comes from chanting spells, mantras or from objects she can imbue with power. She can focus her mystic energies to move currents of air or like PK 'hands'. She has to do that because her paws (hands and feet) are now less dexterous than they used to be. They still spread out like fingers and toes, but without her Pk, simple tasks like brushing her teeth would be a major challenge.

Tegan is an Avatar. Her spirit Emu claims to be old enough to have seen the pyramids being built. Tegan is not so sure, but Emu is old. She guides Tegan and watches for the most part. When Gloira tricked Tegan, Emu was taken by surprise, but gave hints about Tegan's condition to others.


Tegan loves to dance, she favors 'liquid' and jump style. She has taken Irish and Mexican folk dancing classes, but was bitten by the Rave bug. She loves to sing as well, having gotten a trophy or two. She also has a knack for the social and behavioral sciences, she wants to be a social worker someday.

Tegan is an air mage. Her focus is in using air and element based magic. however she can study other chants, cantrips and mantras. She has several she keeps handy. After her fight in the nightmare dreamscape(see above), her magic began to increase.


Tegan loves making friends, helping friends and partying with friends. She'd never hesitate to help her friends or lovers. Her gregarious personality does get her into trouble, but she will not break up couples.

Emu encourages Tegan to be helpful. Sphinxes are guardian spirits. Emu encourages Tegan to defend the weak or students who are picked on.


She has the armor, healing powers and strength of a 14 year old girl. She had an eating disorder before she manifested, some days she'll skip a meals to deal with stress. If she can't speak, she can't use her magic.
