Debbie is the CoC resident fairy and the fourth person to join the coven. Her only regret is having missed the G+S handfasting. If a Fairy Tale seems to apply to your life circumstance …then it does.

Kris met the Circle of Cerridwen at hir first PantheaCon in 2016 and knew ze had stumbled onto something fantastic. As a pansexual quoiromantic androgyne, ze considers hirself triply queer and queerness is fundamental to hir sense of self. Also core to hir identity is hir mental illnesses, and ze hopes to one day serve as a psychiatric nurse. Raised by atheists, hir spiritual path has been wholly self-defined and combines elements of eclectic Wicca, Mahayana Buddhism, and looks to incorporate elements of Shakti Tantra. Hir favorite witchy props include candles and gemstones.
