Half-Iron fae Private Detective
Leonard Saxxon III tries to avoid the non-human half of his family as much as possible. Unfortunately, things don’t work out that way as often as he’d hope.
His grandfather, Leonard Saxxon the first, accidentally made a deal with the queen of the iron fae for success in the iron industry by giving a dismissive, “Yeah, sure,” when she requested his first-born. His father, Leo Saxxon II, is a nephrologist (a kidney doctor) and is the property of the Iron Queen, who mostly just forgets him until he can be useful or amusing (such is the general attitude of the fae).
On one of the occasions his mother remembered him after leaving him with his father, she decided to test his strength and see how powerful his fae nature was (and how it would show itself). Sometime before his second birthday (he was born on February 29th, so he was almost 8 years old at the time), she sent a small group of Redcaps to attack him. He naturally panicked as his abilities manifested as he took control of a nearby chain-link fence (and assorted nearby chains) and he ensnared the vicious monsters, fleeing immediately afterwards. Had he died, the Iron Queen would not have been particularly devastated, but his display showed potential. As a present for his success, she gave him a drake from the Seeming (the realm of the fae and other beings tied to nature), which he named Einon (after a character from the film Dragonheart). She also gave him a hobgoblin to teach him responsibility, as it would do chores and other small tasks provided he fed it each night, otherwise it would turn malicious if ignored for too long.
He has kept both presents ever since he struck out on his own, but his job as a private detective means he sometimes has to have his neighbor leave the hobgoblin’s offering out instead, or risk the small fae’s wrath\mischief. Einon has a natural glamour that he uses to appear as a cat when he wishes to prowl the rooftops near the apartment, so the bowl of milk doesn’t strike his neighbor as something odd to leave for a pet.
