"Norse legend tells of the Valkyrie, beautiful shield maidens who circled above the battlefields of men, waiting to pluck the worthy fallen from the fray and bear them off to Valhalla. There, the valiant dead would serve the god Odin in the battle of Ragnarok at the end of the world." - Changing Breeds, pg. 197

"She is the lover, warrior and nurse in one. Though she cannot carry men to Valhalla as her sisters of legend did, she lifts men’s pains long enough for their souls to fly free to whatever land they choose. Then, in her soul-form as a blinding-white graceful swan, she heads back toward the heavens, and new souls to choose or leave behind." - Changing Breeds, pg. 197



Colorful, alluring, and engaging, Danica always seems to be the center of attention. A curvaceous young woman with a penchant for wearing a glamorous blue and black wardrobe, Danica is never any less than striking. Accented with heavy jewelry, her love of gems and precious metals is never in doubt. Danica's matching angular make up and colorful dreadlocks have been her signature look for as long as anyone can remember. Mostly known for her playful and flirtatious nature, she is invariably prepared with a bit of gossip or a witty retort. She cares very deeply for those closest to her and is rarely seen apart from her friends and associates. Quick to rush to the aid of others or to organize in times of crisis, Danica is never shy with her talents.

Gifted in the social arena, Danica can get usually get anything she wants done with the greatest of ease. If for some reason her manipulations fail, she can always throw money at the problem. A great deal of money. Outside of her life in the Accord, Danica is an accomplished businesswoman. However, her greatest talent lies in her miraculous healing magics. Danica is able to reduce the gravest of wounds to nothing more than a paper cut in a matter of minutes.

"Brythians have no formal order or code. Rumor of their existence passes from ear to ear in foxholes and field hospitals, fanned by glimpses of snowy wings in the heat of battle and talk of angels from dying men’s lips. Sometimes doctors or medics, sometimes fellow soldiers, Brythians offer succor in whatever way they can: a drink of cold water, a hand to grip, a night in their beds or the final release of death. Always watchful, the Brythian maiden assures the worthy that they will never die alone." - Changing Breeds, pg. 197



Having joined both the Accord and The Gatekeepers in 2006, Danica has primarily served The Third Lantern in Boston. Few know much of Danica's past before she learned of the Truth. Oddly private about her life outside of the supernatural, she will dodge the topic whenever asked. Those diligent enough would easily discover police reports and obituaries about a boyfriend who was murdered in 2006.

After the events of the Langely Massacre, Danica was quick to help the northeast region pick up the pieces, filling The Third Lantern's position on the Regional Council. Over the years she has served as Councilor, Voice and even Cell Leader.

In 2013, Danica moved to the Un Arbol cell to be with her husband. Though he departed the marriage after only 7 months, she chose not to abandon her duties and served as Chief Medical Officer until the island's two cells dissolved and merged together in 2015. With the medical officer's position eliminated, Danica elected to return to Boston and The Third Lantern.

Globally, Danica has put her talents to good use in the Accord's numerous Operations. She has led the Unconventional Warfare Unit during Operation: Rising Phoenix, as well as served as Commanding Officer for Operation: Smoke and Mirrors, Operation: Special Delivery and Great Big Double Check 2013 - Team Lisbon. More recently she has worked to train other Accordists, assisting as Chief Medical Officer during Operation: Old Peculiar and seconding Steven Bradley's Public Relations Unit during Operation: The Tower.



After a brutal assault on a cult within the confines of Boston, Jacques Saunier and Setah-sefer rescued and recruited Danica. Personally mentored by the Heirophant, Danica and Jacques have maintained a close relationship over the years. Rising through the ranks quickly, Danica Barrows was elevated to the status of Grandmaster in 2013, only the second to receive this honor in all of the order's history.

However, as time passed the Order became a shadow of itself. Founding members and Grandmasters alike departed, and membership dwindled to below to half of its former glory. With the Hierophant gone for months at a time and sacrifices being made in the name of adjusting to the Accord's hierarchy, Danica clung to the old ways and sought to make the organization better from within. When it became clear that it was no longer the arcane Order she had joined but just another Division, Danica made the difficult decision to leave.

Over the course of nine months, The Samaritan Group courted Danica for their budding medical department. At first she would only provide her services as a contracted consultant, but after building their impressive department, one perfectly suited to her every need, she found she could no longer deny her desire to work in such a prestigious and professional atmosphere. It is rumored that during her time assisting the Division, she took out several contracts herself with their agents. Wholly impressed by their expertise and competence, this was the demonstration that proved to be the deciding factor in their favor. Now, Danica proudly leads the fledgling Biomedical subdivision, fostering its growth and gathering both novice and expert to staff this new enterprise.



In June of 2014, Danica was one of the extraordinary thirty two Accord agents chosen to found the Emergency Response Team. An inter-Division organization based out of Nicaragua, the Emergency Response Team's goal is to help mitigate threats to the Accord before they become unwanted disasters. Of the six active teams, Danica is a member of Team Sapphire, providing the unit with unparalleled medical expertise.

The following month, Danica led Team Sapphire to great success during Mission: Chainbreaker. Alongside Team Snapdragon, they were able to infiltrate a CUT stronghold and destroy a corrupted artifact in Rutland, Vermont with no casualties.

"When Wing-Folk do appear in public, they give off the air of an effete intellectual or self-made millionaire. Why should they associate with humans unless those “weighty” people are as well-bred and intelligent as birds?" - Changing Breeds, pg. 189

"Most Wing-Folk prefer the society of their own kind to solitude. With the exception of bat-folk, winged ferals group themselves in mated pairs. For some, this is a lifelong bond, broken only by one or the other’s death. After their mates’ deaths, these ferals either commit ritual suicide or live out their lives in celibacy, sometimes taking holy orders that emphasize the sacred sky." - Changing Breeds, pg. 189

"The core of any shapechanger’s life is her Nahual: the animal aspect to which she’s bound. Many people think of this aspect as a totem or power animal yet the bond runs much deeper than that. The Nahual is not an external entity but an innate part of that person from birth. Although it’s not discernibly genetic, you could say it’s in her blood." - Changing Breeds, pg. 25
