Tinisha Dolaira is the female lead of my series and love interest of Patrick Donovan. When I created her, I based aspects of her personality on my late grandmother, which include a compassionate heart, a sharp mind, and strong moral code. In addition, I made Tinisha the same age as my grandmother when she passed away. In terms of species, I made Tinisha one of my favorite of all mythological beings, a high elf. However, to avoid cliches from other sword and sorcery stories, I placed Tinisha outside of her comfort zone when she is transported from her home world into twenty-first century Earth. She is very afraid and curious about how the modern world works and often turns to Patrick Donovan for comfort and explanations. While she is inexperienced about the modern world, she is morally wise and has strong ideals. Due to her advanced age, Tinisha serves as the big sister or motherly figure of the team. Because of the nature of their first encounter, Tinisha feels like watching over Patrick and his friends to be her responsibility.
