When the sign says 'Stay behind the rope', you should stay behind the rope.
Sierra was a lower middle class girl in Mexico City with an interest in hacking and a hobby of getting bullied when she made the decision to head into a recently discovered section of an old temple. It was a school excursion which meant the mean girls, favorites of the teacher, had a field day with her until their insults and mocking caused her to hide out down that fateful tunnel.
Only recently excavated, and still waiting for the dead air to be extracted before being explored, Sierra was the first person in there for centuries. And that is where she met and bonded with Xiuhtecuhtli, the Aztec god of fire. And since that time she has been struggling with a very powerful voice in her head and a wide variety of magical and fire powers that were close to getting her burned to the stake back home - it is doubtful that punishment would have done much.
With the approval of the Mexican government, Sierra has now arrived at Coral Springs to hopefully learn to control her powers and get on better with the bloodthirsty deity that cohabits her body.
'''Enegry Projection''' - This takes the form of flames/fireballs or heat and can be projected from her hands (usual method) or emanate from her whole body if she needs to blast an area.
'''Flame manipulation/Magic''' - In combination with the above, Sierra knows Aztec rituals and magic that allows her to use her energy in none-destructive ways. From helping cook food or serve as an area heater to making flame sculptures that can retain their shape for a short period. Xiuhtecuhtli is slowly teaching her more spells - probably when he remembers them himself.
'''Flight''' - Sierra can use her heat powers to fly - the air becoming heated around her to lift and propel. She's not very good at and may be a bit wobbly. Landings are the worst.
'''Hacker''' - Sierra has made a good start in life at being a hacker. The second-hand computers her family used to share were packed with all kinds of illegal code and illicit files to learn from.
'''Dancer''' - Though she's not that much of a social being she does love to dance. Nothing trained or formal - more flinging herself around in time to the rhythm.
All NPCs for now and I'll add more as I mention them.
Nan Maria - Grandmother. She looks after the kids when parents are working. Tries to get me to dance all the time instead of sit at the computer.
Pappy Rodrigo - Grandfather. I have never seen him not sick. Likes to tell us stories of the old days.
Pedro - Father. Works hard so he wasn't around much but when he was we all learned about discipline. And we were pretty sure a new sibling was on the way in nine months.
Louisa - Mother. Works hard at home and in odd jobs in the neighbourhood. She wants the best for us and puts up with me more than father likes.
Jesus - Eldest brother. Currently serving time for murder.
Pedro Jr - Brother. Skipped school to hang out with gangs. Don't see him much as my parents say he is not welcome home.
Joanna - Elder sister. Very popular with the neighbourhood boys.
Angelica - Younger sister. Currently wants to be a nun. Last week she wanted to be an ice princess.
Rosita - Aunt. Father's sister though he does not like her much. Rosita is the one who has warned me about what boys want.
Maria - Aunt. Not a blood aunt but she lives with Rosita and I treat her like one.
Antonio - Uncle. Mother's brother. Also involved in the gangs. Looking after Pedro Jr.
