Tamir Kendall is a young Scion and member of the Clave.


Older than his sister Mary Francis Kendall by six minutes, Tamir was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In the interest of being Americanized, his family adopted his mother's last name rather than his father's, with his father usually going by "Abe" instead of Ibrahim.

As their father tended to dote on his sister (nicknamed Frankie) and Tamir's own efforts as an artist and young mage usually went unnoticed, he went through life feeling as though he had something to make up for. Adding to this was the fact that with his father's conservative Middle Eastern background he knew it would cause undue strain on the family if he ever came out of the closet.

After finishing graduate school and a disastrous relationship, Tamir went through a depression and some mild alcohol abuse until concern for his sister and an old family friend Skay Donovan getting involved with supposedly friendly Laukos had him decide to move to the New York City area. Shortly after that decision was made, Aedan Crowe came to him to test him for suitability for the Clave in an attempt to counteract the more liberal approaches of Austin Sawyer and the young woman he'd chosen for the Clave, Tamir's own sister.

Through Frankie, Tamir met the members of Shockfront Alpha, including Ray McKenzie, whom he began dating. When Shockfront came to the notice of other members of the Clave, it was decided to brand Ray so that a Scion would be on the team to keep an eye on them.


Tamir is rash, passionate, and egotistical. Whatever views he adopts have a tendency to be taken to what he views as their logical end, which is also usually viewed as extreme by anyone else. He views betrayal as the worst thing a person can do and is very harsh judge of what counts as betrayal.

However, he has recently undergone a crisis of faith and had his resolve to uphold Scion law no matter what shaken. Having betrayed the law for Ray, he's been filled with guilt and self-loathing. He has vacillated wildly between an anarchic disregard for all laws and the resolution to be their strictest adherent.

Where he might settle when his crisis is complete is still unclear.


Tamir is an intermediate level mage, focusing the majority of his attention on the development of Artifacts and counter magic. He has some skill with memory manipulation and offensive magic, though he is still learning.


Tamir works at Phoenix Industries with JC LaChance and Katelynn Rivers. He has recently befriended a mysterious man, Jacob Thomas Chandler. He was childhood friends with Skay Donovan. He is currently dating Ray McKenzie.

He is also a member of the Clave and is being mentored by Aedan Crowe.
