MC is a red-haired, 22 year old female archer. Long braid over left shoulder. Dressed for hiking - boots, jerkin, leggings - medieval type garb. She is also a healer who uses an orb. Male MC is 34, tall, dark shoulder length wavy hair. He is a warrior mage, skilled, intelligent, definitely not flashy. A serious man. Yes, both good looking but not flashy. Serious mood - they have evil to fight. They meet in a forest, travel through towns and the Wild. These are educated sophisticated people, both trained in the use of magic, he is trained in War, she in healing and Life magic. No barbarians or waifs please.
From Book I, as they look at each other:
She turned and looked him up and down. The truth was, he looked quite well even in patched and borrowed clothes. His shoulder length brown hair was clean and curled slightly. Hana had insisted on trimming hair and beard with her shears and the result suited him. His brown eyes were dark but clear alongside his strong nose. She had suggested he keep the beard he had grown over several weeks to hide his features. “Why trim away what time has already made,” she said and he had agreed. It would keep any other bounty hunters from instantly recognizing his face. That and a moustache almost hid his generous mouth and even teeth. He had put on weight but was still lean and well-muscled. A hand and more taller than she, he made a fine looking “uncle.”
He caught the intensity in her gaze and decided that she was fair game. He liked what he saw. She was tall for a woman, slender, even graceful, but there was steel in her. Under her dark red-brown hair, deep green eyes looked out from beneath curved brows. She had fair skin evenly darkened by the sun and high cheekbones. A straight nose, a serious mouth but a woman’s lips above a firm chin. He had suggested she put some spare clothes in a pack before they arrived in town, “So the foldbox won’t draw attention.” Today, she was dressed in dark green leggings and a lighter green shirt. Dressed for hunting.
From Book III: a man, tall, lean and well-favored, with wavy brown hair and a quiet face.
