THE SAN ANTONIO GGB OFFICERS
* Empress of the Sci-Fi Army & Tech Goddess
Origin Story: Amanda was raised under the two moons of Abode until she was kidnaped by the Phoenix Force and flung halfway across the galaxy into adventures of daring do. She spent her childhood training in spellsongs, trading her soul for anything with a print type or narrative arc, and tripping up the boys with her erudite knowledge of all things geeky and arcane.
By day, she takes care of special needs children and corrects people’s grammar for pay. By night, she fights crime as five to twenty different people, including a Research Queen, a Google Eight-Ball, a Tech Wizard and a Dragon Con Dame. It’s been whispered her kryptonite is large vocabularies, geeky jewelry, tea, and stashes of dark chocolate.
Geeky Top Ten: The Expanse, Humans, all Space SciFi’s, Disney, Terry Moore, Comixology, Netflix/Hulu, A Song of Ice and Fire, John & Hank Green, and geeky subscription boxes

Makin’ Magic Behind the Scenes
Origin Story: Jess was raised on anime without even knowing it. It was just “cartoons” that she happened to watch in Spanish. As an adult, she still enjoys anime, but has a newfound appreciation for what it is and has ventured out into other things.
By day, she toils away in a cubicle. In her free time, she enjoys sewing, cosplay, Minecraft, cooking and making things. She’s the fixer of the group and she loves it, but hates the camera. We’ll get her to show her face sooner or later… (Spoiler – her cosplay pictures are linked below. SHH! Don’t tell her!)
Fandom faves: Disney, Harry Potter, Merlin (BBC), BNHA, Gundam Wing, Supernatural, Wonder Woman
Favorite Quote: “We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re Mad.” — Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
Brunch Drink: Varies on my mood
