SERIES ONE (COVERS YEARS 2004-2016). IN SERIES ONE, OPS MUST THWART ZENITH'S PARALLEL DIMENSION SCHEME AND THE RISING OF ELKROD AND QUAFARA. YES, IT'S QUITE A TRYING TIME! THE KEY PLAYERS IN SERIES ONE ARE:
Jennifer Saunders- A victim of dissociative identity disorder, the first four books outline her challenge to integrate her 7 multiple personalities with her own core personality. Jen winds up a ‘soul’ survivor when an alien attacks the scientific base in Arizona where she works and lives. She survives, but her soul is infused with the personalities of her 78-year-old mentor, Oscar Clegg, and a young trauma nurse, Anissa Radovich.
Sam and Bam Grant – Born in 1969, curly-haired and big-nosed Sam came from the NSA to Ops to organize the field agents. Younger, blonde-haired Bam, recovering from serving jail time for manslaughter while on duty with the Arizona Highway Patrol, met him in Stark and soon they were married. Neither are paranormal field agents. Both shoot really well.
Chase Meridian & Frost- Sultry, gorgeous, bisexual, pot-smoking Chase is always seeking balance (hence her last name). But things change for Chase and her lover; tall, dark and handsome Frost. They meet Sam and Bam in Cape Girardeau and join Ops as elemental channelers.
Searly McTaggert- A pixie redhead from Cairo, Illinois, Searly’s life changes when her friend is possessed by the ancient Egyptian evil Quafara. Searly loses her best friend to Quafara, and a stroke leaves her capable of channeling only fire.
Geneva Kane- The Maine resident joins Ops at age 18 after being trained by her grandfather, Gerald, who helped Tripper O’Sullivan kill Hitler in WWII. Geneva is a dark-haired, noble channeler who takes her family lineage and shoe shopping very seriously!
Tripper O’Sullivan- Born in 1897 in Tupelo, Mississippi, and kept alive due to an infusion of zombie magic, lanky Tripper uses his cane and a brusque Southern manner to keep people at bay. He’s one of the world’s most powerful geometric channelers, and his manner certainly agitates Geneva Kane.
Marrina- Is she real or imagination? The queen of the hidden kingdom of Atlantia, if she’s real she’s the most powerful figure in the world. Tripper is convinced she’s merely the figment of drunken sailors' imaginations . . .
Meredith Patience- As a teen, blonde Meredith’s family is murdered by Zenith and her sister is turned into a zombie soul-slave. She takes on the guise of Lady Ice and, guided by her mentor Scorpio, attempts to rescue Beth.
