Character Spotlight: Sophie Talbot

The last of the three children is the big time animal enthusiast, Sophie Talbot. Here’s a deeper look into this ever considerate character.

* * * * * * *

1. Sophie freely admits that she’s something of a worrier, especially when it comes to these mythical creatures she promised to help out. Shiloh usually gives her a hard time about this, reminding her that these animals are probably more capable than she is at taking care of themselves. It never stops her from worrying, though.

2. The all-important mission Callum has given them is something Sophie takes very seriously. It breaks her heart thinking about all those magical animals trapped for so long because of Faelan’s plan. Whenever it’s rescue time, she focuses on the mission and does her best to help free these captured creatures.

3. Knowing Bree all her life, Sophie is well aware that she’s one of the few people that can calm her excitable friend down. Whenever Bree lets things get too crazy or takes things too far, it’s usually up to Sophie to bring her back to her senses. As you can imagine, this keeps Sophie pretty busy.

4. Considering her love of animals, this summer has been beyond amazing for Sophie. All these new and fantastic creatures she’s never seen before has made this the best summer vacation ever. The only downside she can think of is that it’s proving quite hard to find stuffed animals of creatures that by all counts shouldn’t exist.

Character Spotlight: Shiloh Talbot

Now for some information on the sometimes too serious Shiloh, a character whose curiosity is just a little stronger than his tendency to get freaked out by all this magic stuff.

* * * * * * *

1. While his interest in animals is increasing, he still finds it hard to believe the lengths Sophie and Bree go to for these magical animals. It puzzles him to think about what goes on in their heads when they do crazy things and it kind of scares him to think he might eventually start to think like that, too.

2. Shiloh is a huge fan of the documentaries that Bree’s parents make. Whenever they come back from a trip, his mood always improves knowing he’ll get a sneak peak at whatever project is coming up next. Bree is quick to use that information to her advantage.

3. Being a little brother, he misses no chance to remind Sophie that he’s typically the responsible one in the group. Whenever a problem arises during a mission, Shiloh is pretty reliable when it comes to offering up a plan. It doesn’t hurt that he always brings a backpack filled with whatever supplies he imagines they might need.

4. Callum made it clear that raising a dragon is no easy task and Arrow constantly reminds Shiloh of this. Whether it’s chasing after something shiny, setting the lawn on fire or not listening to his partner during a mission, the young dragon makes it extremely hard for Shiloh to keep his cool. Still, the bond the two share is very strong and a few scorch marks won’t change that.
