Full Name: Cryptic Von Macawber
Nicknames "Crypt," "Little Prince," by Anubis when he
was young. "Not you again!" Isn't really a nickname but is the first thing
that comes out of McCawber's and Morbidson's mouthes when they see him.
Age: 21 in looks but really over 1000. His demeinor even
though he looks 21 many mortals can see him as older, by their terms
Occupation Husband, Father, True King Of the
Demon-Verse, Lord of the South-East Kingdom, Warlock.
Voice: Billy Zane. Expecally him in The Crypt Keepers
Childhood: Cryptic then never knew his mother growing
up, his father, Tombar, had told him that she left him as a baby for Tombar
to raise. Cryptic had an older half sister, Gravela, her mother had died
when she was little. Cryptic and her were close though grew apart on good
terms. When Cryptic was ten he started to be filled with his own goals
and view of life different from his father's. This upset Tombar because
he expected his son to be a carbon copy of him. When Cryptic was twelve
Rene Morbidson told Tombar that Cryptic wasn't his child but really was
a demon's. Tombar strangely accepted this as truth even though Morbidsons
were sworn enemies of Macawbers. Cryptic then was thrown out of the family
followed by Rene trying to kill him. Luckly he met up with Macawb Macawber,
the forefather of the Macawber family that was thrown out a long time ago
for being a vampire and killing some of this family even though he couldn't
control what he did at the time.
Early Adulthood: Cryptic was taught Swordfighitng ans
Chivery by who he now called Grandfather Macawber.
Adulthood to Present: Annelle had only just begun to find
real peace when her cousin Lily invited her to visit the Greenhouse. Feeling
that this was a perfect opportunity for a change, Annelle accepted, quit
her job, and headed for St. Canard. Her first evening at the Bushroots'
home, a late caller arrived to see Bushroot. His name was Cryptic Von Macawber,
and Annelle, who had never given much thought to love at first sight, became
an instant believer. Cryptic apparently experienced the same, but it took
some time for them to overcome their fears and express their feelings for
one another. Their marriage took place soon after, and Annelle is now expecting
their first child. Nellie also has developed a close bond with Negaduck,
first thinking of him as a friend, then a cousin, and finally, what she
needed most--a father.
Other Notes: In my opinion, Nellie is, in many ways, the
most intriguing of the three Reed cousins. As is plain by her tan feathers
and brown markings, Nellie is a full-blooded mallard. She thinks nothing
of it when in Hennessee, but in large cities such as St. Canard, where
most feathers are pure white, she can be a little self-conscious. Annelle
also has the distinction of being the first Reed girl to capture the heart
of royalty (Charlotte being the second, since Negaduck is the Lord
of the Negaverse). Cryptic is the rightful king of a parallel universe
called the Demon-Verse, making Annelle his queen, a role which she has
undertaken quite well considering her youth and lack of experience. Her
physical skills have reached an all-time high, adding swordplay to her
other abilities. Since her relationship with Cryptic began, she has been
stabbed twice and nearly killed in other ways, slain both a demon and a
vampire, and been through many more adventures that would make the folks
back home faint. Another interesting point is the fact that Annelle and
Cryptic have already met their son, Random Chaos Macawber. He hails from
nearly twenty years in the future and has become stuck in this time. He
is a troubled young man and rarely speaks, but what Cryptic and Annelle
have discovered of his past has revealed that more tragedy awaits them.
Through all this, though, Nellie remains firm in her belief that somehow
things will turn out all right, no matter what. Her love for Random and
devotion to Cryptic are consuming, and she would think nothing of laying
down her life for either of them, or for anyone else she loves. She'll
deny that she's very strong inside, but in truth, Nellie has become an
incredibly strong young woman likely to survive just about anything. Annelle
is the most outspoken of the cousins; you're going to hear what she has
to say whether you want to or not. Her emotions climb to the highest joys
and plunge to the deepest sorrows; she also possesses the hottest temper,
and, despite her self-consciousness, she is prone to being the proudest.
When emotions, tongue, temper, and pride come together, the results are
no less than a conflagration, and the effects aren't always beneficial.
More than anyone, Nellie has to keep herself in careful check, especially
when dealing with Demon-Versers. So far, she's doing very well. Queen Annelle
has come a long way.
