Donal 'Tippy' McFadden is a fisherman by trade, working his trawler out of Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. He's fifty-two, married to his wee Clare for thirty-one wonderful years, and has seven children, the oldest of which, Fergus, 26, assists him as a full partner in their business. A staunch Scots Presbyterian, Tippy nonetheless despises the Troubles and the always-simmering feuds between Protestant and Catholic in his homeland. He's a regular at the Fern Garden, the local neighborhood pub on Glentaisie Street, where he challenges the best at darts, and has a keen nose and tongue for local microbrewed ales.
Donal McFadden is also one of the many guises used throughout the many long years by the elder dragon Diamondice, who took a fancy to the Earth four thousand years ago, and has been sampling the cultures and lifestyles of humans around the globe the entire time. As one of the ten elder dragons of the cosmos, Diamondice is functionally immortal, a full shapeshifter, can manipulate probability fields, and mind control any human being or other sentient being. In his natural form, he is over six hundred feet long, multifaceted diamond-like scales, six legs, a long, snakelike tail, and a large, narrow head with eyes that look like giant star emeralds. He has no wings but flies by dint of his mystic powers, within an atmosphere, or amongst the stars. As with all dragons, he does breathe fire, but his is more a plasma--starfire that is over six million degrees celsius. Needless to say, he is a deadly opponent, or a valuable friend.
He is also loyal, and will live out his 'life' until his beloved Clare passes away, whereby he plans on 'dying' soon after--dragon or not, love is immortal, and she is the first and only woman in his verdant, all-seeing eyes. He also plans on leaving Earth at that time, for every bit of it will forever remind him of his wee Clare...
