@sarah-inkdragon How about… Haydn, Jax, and Vyrn?

Haydn: Also known as Shadow Von Wolfsbane, Haydn is the wolf-captain of Nagaria, and the main antagonist for the first novel in this trilogy. He’s the son of a legendary general Erabrus Von Wolfsbane, and brother of the huntress/assassin Ivanna. Growing up as the elder brother, Haydn was expected to take the crown one day, and he trained ruthlessly to become strong enough to rule his war-loving country with respect and power. However, he has a soft side for his sister and despite the fact that she doesn’t seem to return his love, he’ll do anything to keep her safe. When his father goes under deep cover to infiltrate a rebel base and steal their plans to defeat the evil empire that Nagaria is allied with, Haydn assumes control of the country and leads it on a rampage against the rebels and personally against the MC of the novel, Kirin. However, he later has a redemption arc after his best friend/guard turns out to be a spy for the rebels themselves and tries to kill him, forcing Haydn to fight back, but Haydn cannot bring himself to kill his friend. His guard then attempts to stab him, but his father steps in and dispatches his ex-guard. Shamed as a coward, Haydn begins to question if what they are doing is right after this circumstance, and eventually when he fails to capture Kirin and his gang he’s thrown in jail by the Emperor himself only to be later reluctantly rescued by Kirin and his gang. Eventually, he comes around and becomes a valuable ally in fighting against the Emperor and later on in life he becomes a famous peace-keeper and kind ruler for his war-torn nation.
Jax: Jax is half-elf, in a world where elves are despised and basically considered “pure evil” because of a mass genocide led by elves about 20 years before the story starts. Jax’s mother was an elf in hiding, but as elves have feline-like eyes and reflexes, they have to take a drug that dilates their pupils and slows their reactions to a normal human’s speed. Jax’s father was a nobleman who fell in love with his mother(who was a maid in his manor) and later when their child was born he saw the boy’s feline-like eyes and realized the woman he loved was actually an elf. Enraged and betrayed, he chased her off his grounds threatening to kill her or turn her into the gov’t. His mother and him fled to Eastrim(basically the eastern continent) and lived on the streets until later she died of illness. A gang leader named Torma found 2-year-old Jax wandering around and took him in after realizing he was part elf, training him to be an assassin and tool for her criminal empire. As the years went on, he became somewhat notorious among outlaws and made Torma’s gang quite rich and powerful. But Torma craved power, and eventually after a while Jax began to realize what he was doing wasn’t right, and asked Torma if he could “buy his freedom/leave”, which she refused. She then sent him on a mission to destroy an entire noble family who’d killed one of her best men, but he couldn’t justify killing everyone so he refused and Torma tried to kill him. Jax managed to escape and was wandering for a while, trying to figure out what to do with his life and what to do with his sudden want fix his past mistakes, when a man hires him to track down his missing friend. He finds the friend, who turns out to by Vyrn, and Kirin with her. They decide to recruit him as part of their team.
Vyrn: Vyrn is a descendant of a once proud and ancient sea-faring people who were mostly nomadic in nature and who traveled around Eastrim on ships. When the Emperor took over Eastrim, he killed off most of the nobles of these people(including Vyrn’s family). Her mother raised her up to one day take back their empire, and Vyrn grew up learning to fight and sail before she could walk. However, she was not a fighter by nature and didn’t want to rule a nation. She and her butler/guard/friend ran away when she was 17, and then she became a bit of a rogue, causing trouble and starting fights. When she gets picked up by the Emperor’s guards and thrown in prison, Jax is the one who rescues her and Kirin from prison. She then joins Kirin and helps convince Jax to join them, because she wants to try and figure out what she can do to help since she feels obligated to help them defeat the Emperor for her mother’s sake, since her mother died not too long ago after she ran away. She struggles with anger and asking others for help, and it gets the gang into trouble more than once. She even faces off against Haydn once after a huge fight between him and Kirin, and nearly kills him but is stopped by Jax. Later on, she manages to let go of some of her anger and becomes a healer, and also one of the main helping forces in Haydn’s redemption arc.
All of these characters are from the same book, if you didn’t notice. XD

@kari-karast COOL! YAY! Just the ones I wanted to talk about. Sorry for getting back so late. I’ve been really busy, shooting sports competitions and stuff.
Well here goes and if it’s boring, you can throw virtual tomatoes to your hearts content! 🙂
I’ll do Skye first because Hector’s my favorite, save the best for last you know.
Skye is a human. LOL!! 🙂 I don’t write a lot of Sci-Fi or fantasy. He is sixteen. He is an orphan and grew up on the streets of New York City in a gang. He’s haunted by the darkness that he witnesses in the midst of a long, violent battle with a rival gang. A lot of his friends go missing or are killed. Then the tension climaxes when a riot brakes out. Skye’s best friend and mentor is killed. Skye is now targeted and has to leave the city to avoid being killed too. He gets on an empty box car on a train headed out of state. . . and the rest is a very long story and would be telling you too much. . . 😛 In personality he is very introverted. He is not very vocal in expressing himself and usually chooses to be alone instead of with a companion. He is extremely sensitive, but not very vengeful. All the hurt just turns to depression. It’s hard to flesh out his personality for you because he’s so introverted!! LOL And he now lives in constant fear of being caught by his enemies.
And now Hector!! 🙂 (Who is also a human)
He is 22 and grew up as a cowboy and outdoors man in a small Wyoming town. His father was a police officer and his mother was just, well, a mother. His dad was a ‘good person’ generally and a highly respected figure in the community. Hector respected his dad as well and trusted him greatly.
Then when he is about ten, his dad is unfaithful and his parents get divorced. His mom is remarried and has a daughter. Hector stays with his mom and he has to deal with her husband who abuses him. Then when he is sixteen his step-dad is found in serious criminal activity and to save her husband, his mom shifts the blame on Hector and he is arrested. A prominent detective looks into the case and discovers that Hector is innocent. Hector is released, but before he can thank the detective, she is killed.
Hector finds himself betrayed and alone with no one to trust and no one who trusts him. He doesn’t live with his mom, but stays nearby for a few months so he can visit his little sister.
Then Hector’s real father turns up after a long disappearance and, in revenge of his wife’s remarriage, murders, or seemingly murders Hector’s little sister while really he sells her to human trafficking.
Hector leaves Wyoming, much different from the boy of six years hence. He works his way through college, becomes a firefighter, and ends up in Knoxville. He has a place where he goes in the middle of no where and just lives in the wilderness for a little while (it’s kinda like his vacation).
Through years of experience he has become excellent in dealing with any kind of animal, big or small. He knows and can imitate the call of every animal in North America. He has a talent for calling animals to him. There’s no where he’d rather be than outside. He can shoot excellently any kind of bow (though the long bows which he makes are his preference) and he can hunt with a spear(he has an almost disdain for more modern weapons like guns). He also knows everything you could know about tracking and is largely self-taught.
His religious beliefs are hard to explain. He is a Christian. . . but he has a different way of thinking from most people. Partly because he is slightly mystic.
In personality he is also introverted, though not in the same way as Skye. (Much of his personality is molded by his backstory) He is naturally quiet and prefers talking to animals over talking to people. On the other hand he has a hot temper. But it’s not a quick temper. It takes a while to get him riled and usually you have to do something very stupid or very cruel or downright evil to make him mad. And if you manage to be bad enough to do that, usually you become his fierce enemy. He is extremely perceptive and can judge what kind of person you are just by watching how you operate. It takes a very VERY skilled pretender to fool him. It takes a lot to earn his respect and even more to earn his trust. But at the same time he would gladly give every thing he had for anybody who needed it. He is brave and people tend to call him fearless, not realizing that bravery is facing fear, not never being afraid. He is extremely honest and has never told a lie to anyone for any reason, but at the same he is not open and rarely talks about his past. Even after a person becomes his friend, it takes a long time for his story to come out.
So that’s that!! *puts shield up, mentally prepares for a bath in tomato juice*

@kari-karast Super well. My two brothers and I all three won awards and had a TON of fun.
I’m glad you like them! *Hector excepts the chocolate and smiles in thanks*
BTW, Dakota, who writes the poems in the thread ‘Lyrical Poems are welcome here,’ is my big sister.

Yep! My sis! We sometimes make up stories together.
