"But that's the beautiful thing about hope, is it not? It may be crushed, it may wither, but it will always rise again, and with it, you."
- Mara to Luke, The Bow of Water
Mara Delacroix is an equium and an ice elementalist. She is currently attending the Selerian Academy.
Early Life Edit
Mara Delacroix was born on 11 February 2001 in Paris. When she was two years old, her father was mysteriously killed in a car crash. Her mother, Caroline Delacroix, took her and her sister Katalina Delacroix, who was then twelve, to New York for a better life. One year later, her brother, Max Delacroix was born. Two years later, Katalina disappeared one night. Mara recalled that Caroline was cursing "those Members" and had said that Katalina was "somewhere she wouldn't want to go".
When Mara was eleven, she was chasing Max around the house, who had taken her book. To escape her, Max climbed on a cabinet. In anger, Mara unknowingly used her elemental power to bind Max's legs on the cabinet with ice.
