Every story starts with the tiniest moment
Across the road, tadpoles are dancing on the quarter
thumbnail of the moon. They cant see, not yet." - James Wright

Sting is a Snarhook, named because ze will eventually be painted Maraquan.
Every step is a tiny triumph of will over circumstance
One very wet summer, during heavy rainfall the pond flooded, connecting several old small streams, and with a little complicity on her part, Ceri was swept downstream through rocks and rapids, the fast-flowing waters carrying her right out to the coast.
The ocean was huge to a little tadpole like Ceriesse, and salty which would take some getting used to, but she had been given a taste of adventure and she didn't feel like stopping. So off she went into the big blue beyond.
She quickly learned that the sea was a much more dangerous place than the pond she'd grown up with. The most she'd had to worry about there was nets of curious explorers, and the occasional hungry bird. In the sea if something didn't want to eat her, it would sting her as soon as look at her.
She eventually found refuge on a coral reef off the coast of Mystery Island, where there was food and shelter, and aquatic creatures who were peers on the food chain and not trying to have for her breakfast. She ventured out, but always had a safe place to go back too as she pleased.
It was on one of these little ventures that Ceri got into trouble, swimming too close to a fishing area and getting scooped up in a net. Instead of becoming fine dining or a morsel for a hungry fisherman, Jasper liberated the little amphibian. Ceri told her of her adventures and her troubles, and eventually Jasper asked if she wanted to join her. She was doing her own exploring, and needed someone who could navigate the waters.
Realising how much she was missing the company of her family, she agreed, deciding on the best of two worlds she wanted to experience; adventure and excitement; and comfort and company.
