Daxliegh is the twin of Shaeli (thus the need for Spot to be Cat ;).
Shaeli was banished to the earth realm because she was falsely accused of something Daxliegh did. Daxliegh was just a child when this happened and in my minds eye I can feel her back story as this child. Hiding from the wrath of her elders only to discover upon her return that her sister has been banished.
Words I associate with Daxliegh: Twin. Shame. Agenda. Power. Strength.
I decided I wanted to have a dragonfly totem in the story when one day I was surrounded by them. I was in the discovery process at the time and it seemed that they had to be in the story.
