Thesan Wain Fortier Character in Albion | World Anvil

Thesan Wain Fortier

Thesan Wain has been the astronomy professor at Schola since 1917. During her time there as a student, she was in Horse House.   She is the middle of seven children, closest to her next older brother Seth Wain. She and her siblings all attended Schola, but she is quite aware of what it took to get there.  
When Eclipse begins, she has been settled into teaching for a number of years. Last year, she and a new teacher, Isembard Fortier began marking at the pub together on Friday nights. When his former mentor Alexander Landry takes up a teaching post, the dynamics begin to change. Thesan and Isembard find themselves juggling all the usual chaos of the school year as well as mysterious activities of the students.   Reading from Thesan's point of view makes it clear that the world is sometimes too fast, too bright, and too loud for her (unlike stars, which are rather far away and don't change fast.) Thesan is somewhere on the autism spectrum, though it is not very obvious to people around her.
