How would Ashlyn and Sirius react to meeting a child mc, and mc being afraid of them and timid? ie trying to hide behind Elianna or Tobias, and not interact with him directly.
"Mommy, who is that man?"
With such innocent eyes and question, who would think that this child is evil, wonders Ash as he lays tender eyes on his flesh and blood. 
This is the second time he has visited the farm outside Northview.
"They've grown up," Sirius remarks under his skull.
"Indeed," Ashlyen replies with a sad smile on his lips.
Elianna meets his gaze with her beautiful brown eyes and Ash has all the difficulties in the world not to take her in his arms. The young mother lowers her eyes towards the child who clings desperately to the bottom of her dress.
"He has a big cat!" the half-blood comments in a bemused whisper.
Ashlyen holds back a laugh that he turns into a cough as his familiar lets out an outraged growl.
"I'm not a cat, I'm a Lynx, child!"
The little being startled by the familiar's deep voice shivers with all their limbs and quickly disappears behind the red fabric of their mother's dress.
With a wave of his hand, the elf indicates to his companion to withdraw and crouches down at the child's level. Once again, he meets the eyes of his love who smiles gently despite the tension in her shoulders.
"Hello, I'm a friend of your mom," Ashlyen begins softly. The lie costs him, but the truth would hurt the child more. After all, if he were to say that he was their father, how would they react when he left. Ashlyen has always been bad with tears, he prefers smiles. "You look a lot like her. Except for the eyes. They're the same color as mine."
He coughs, bothered by a sudden lump in his throat that melts slightly from the wave of soothing Sirius sends him through their bond.
"${name}?" questions Elianna. "What do we say?"
Slowly the child emerges from their hiding place and plunges their eyes into his before reaching out with their tiny hand. "Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you, mister."
"It's me who's pleased to meet you." he replies eyes glistening with Tear.

Sirius being called a big cat😂😂😂
What about three-year old MC calling Sachta a big bird👀? What is the familiar's reaction? What about Elianna's?
Saschta's eyes open in amazement. "A big bird! Oh you flatter me, little one."
With a flick of her wing, the familiar leaves the beam where she was perched and settles as gently as possible on your shoulder under Elianna's watchful eye.
"Soft," the child exclaims in a chirp.
"I'm not one of the bigger birds," Saschta continued, rubbing his head against the little half-blood's neck. "But I am one of the fastest, so I'll be near you in no time if the need arise. I promise."
And as Elianna's mind was overwhelmed by a wave of affection from her familiar, she smiled.

Familiars in Witchcraft
In the past familiars were seen as animals that had demonic ties and served witches in their malevolent deeds. Animals like cats, crows, snakes, and toads are often used in this context even today.
However, as times have changed so has the meaning of the word Familiar.
Tumblr media
What is a familiar?
While the definition of familiar will vary culture to culture, practice to practice, and person to person. The relevant Merriam-Webster definition (as there are obviously other very different meanings e.g. being familiar with someone) is:
a spirit often embodied in an animal and held to attend and serve or guard a person
This could be a physical animal, even a pet, but it doesn’t have to be.
Technically the Familiar doesn’t even need to be a real animal, it can be a mythical creature or even a plant or mineral!
Modern day Familiars
Today familiars are essentially beings that help with or are connected to the witch* through their magic. They have been likened to metaphysical guardians, guides, or companions.
Pets can certainly be familiars but not every pet that a witch has qualifies as a familiar. Pets do not have to be your familiar to assist you in magic, you may have simply gotten lucky and received a pet that you are very attuned to. This is still a very wonderful relationship to have, though it is not the relationship between a familiar and a witch.
Witches can have multiple familiars as well.
Not every witch has a familiar and it is not necessary to have one, though many witches feel comfortable and even more connected through their magic with the help of their familiars.
Familiars are not always constant, aside from the perishing of the physical form that may happen to a living creature, spiritual familiars come and go as they see fit. Sometimes it means they’ve helped you or taught you all that they can and it is time for you to move onto something more, other times it may be that you have chosen to leave the witch life behind you.
There is no shame in the loss of a familiar, just like any other relationship; some may last for life times, others may be gone in the blink of an eye.
Familiars in Practice
Familiars help to strengthen the power of the witch's magic. If not overall, they can strengthen magic that the familiar is tied to.
They also may serve as guides to teach and protect the witch.
Sometimes a witch may meet and take on a familiar based on what that being stands for. (Ex: If you need more strength, perhaps you would be sent the spirit of a lion or strong mineral…)
To attract a familiar, or to divine if a pre-existing relationship with a being is a familiar-witch relationship, you can use visualization and meditation. There are some guided meditations on YouTube, but you can do your own if you’d like.
Using other methods of divination is a good way to tell if the being in question is your familiar. Familiars may also come to you in a dream.
Things to remember:
You can’t force a relationship with a familiar.
Familiars are not servants, they are companions and guides.
Respect your familiar as you would any other spirit, showing them love and kindness as the relationships need to be balanced, give and take.
As a witch, your relationship with a familiar is only yours to decide, others cannot decide it for you. Looking to other witches for guidance is advised, of course, but the decision and connection is between you and the familiar.
* Witch is used as a gender neutral and all-inclusive term here, though you do not have to identify with the label of witch to practice magic or to have a familiar.
