I have been a connoisseur of fantasy and fiction all my life and, as a result, I have grown fond of a number of mythological creatures. Among them are high elves, which have been described as the fairest of all beings, which could be an indication of angels without wings. In almost every sword and sorcery story, elves have been depicted as being wiser and more knowledgeable than other beings. For the longest time, I have admired the inhuman beauty and wondrous power that elves possessed. With such tremendous abilities and dashing good looks, I thought that elves would make the perfect superhero and so I applied that idea into my work when I created Tinisha Dolaira, making her a member of the superhero team known as the Young Guardians. While developing the characters for my series, I wondered what would happen if a high elf, who has been born and raised in a world where magic reigns supreme, is taken out of their comfort zone and placed in twenty-first century Earth. They would be morally wise with strong ideals, but would be inexperienced about how the modern world operates. I wanted to depict how such a scenario would occur and how the elf in question would survive in such an unfamiliar environment.
