On Day Sixteen, we remember Stephen Proctor, Diana’s funny, timewalking father. When we meet Stephen, he’s traveled to 1590 to look for Ashmole 782 in order to understand its connection to Diana. A creative, untrained weaver, Stephen managed to fashion his spells–spellbinding Diana, the protections on Ashmole 782–out of love and need. His familiar, Bennu the heron, represents his strong affinity with the element of water. Herons are symbolic in many cultures — they can represent inquisitiveness, curiosity, strength, and purity. Bennu helps Diana understand Corra, her familiar, and brings her closer to her father and his magic. We love Stephen for his humor, his intelligence, his strength, and his sacrifice.
Are you a fan of Stephen, too?
Come and tell us about it on our Facebook page, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers.
