Rena is 28 years old and a long time friend of the girls in the shop, Brigitte and Marinette. The frist time she visited “Veve”, the little witch shop, she was just a teenager and her name was still Mark. Mark was a struggled young boy, who didn’t know who he was and where he belonged. Her was one of many humans over the years, lost and alone, who found refuge at “VeVe”. Some of These humans only stayed some time in contact with Nettie and Brie.
But Mark felt welcomed and at ease with the Girls. He found his interest in shamanism and developed quite some skills for an mortal human. But he was never really happy, always on the edge to a depression. After coming out as transgender she was able to change everything, not only herself. The first time Rena came as her real self in the shop, Nettie gifted her a set of thongs and matching bra. “This is the most important thing every woman should have”, she said with a wink.
Rena began to visit the shop daily and at one Point she started to work there. It was never really official, she just began to talk to customers, check out the goods and stayed at the shop, when nobody was there. After some weeks Brie just gave her a key and a paycheck and since that day she belongs to “VeVe”.
Then there was the time Marielle came. When Rena met the little homeless and dirty teenager girl, she saw a version of herself in her. A lonely and frightened little human, who had to grow up to fast and under hard conditions, lost in a world nobody wants her.
Both Rena and Marie felt a immediately connection between them and a very strong bond evolved over a short time. Both never really talked about their family with each other, but they knew the other understands.
Rena does not really have a clue what is going on with Nettie and Brigitte. She knows they have some kind of magic in them, that is more than any other human can have, she also knows that Marie can communicate with the dead, but the rest? No.
She is not sure if she wants to know and goes with the whole “we are witches” vibe, but she is not dumb and is well aware that there is more. Maybe one day she will ask, when she feels ready with her own abilities, but for know there is no need.
