I spent the better part of the afternoon researching a way to bring a nonbinary character into my story in an organic, wholesome way, as it deserves to be told and then it hit me. A Metis Shaman of Two Spirits would fulfill my desire to help Xavier along his path AND create a true to culture depiction of a Mitew Tantoo Riel, a Metis Canadian who becomes a Spirit Teacher in the Unseen for my characters. They will teach Xavier and Arya about the Spirits, Manitou (the Mysterious Being) and Sky Woman's true desires. They will be able to wear the False Face mask, preform ritual ceremonies including spirit walking, healing, diving, spirit cleansing and more. I aim to treat this character with the love and respect they deserve. Mitew will join my new characters, Ilma and Shafa Khan, Pakastani Jinn sisters I mentioned before.
Stay tuned for more...
