Team Girl! is Eile Chica and Sonne "Sunny" Hiver. They share a unique relationship with Medb hErenn, in that they are somewhat like companions, somewhat like protogégés, and somewhat like associates, but not really fully like any. The only thing they are not are enemies. Medb is friends with Sunny's parents, and she first encountered the Girls, as she calls them, when former enemies of the Hivers tried to kidnap Sunny. Since then she has been protector, mentor, and surrogate mother. They have their own cycle of stories, some of which involve Medb, many of which do not, but which all center on them.
