If you read Casabree’s interview from two weeks ago, you’ve already heard of Era. She’s Casabree’s adoptive mother, the town apothecary in Laemar (the capital city of Mandoria), she’s strangely empathetic, and she almost always has a bit of wisdom for Coraline. Also, she’s the only person around who’s not the tiniest bit scared of Ammadeus. Enjoy her interview! Continue reading “Character Interview: Era Selene”

Casabree is a stablehand in the castle, working under Gabel’s supervision, and the daughter of the capital’s empath healer, Era Selene. She’s a friend of Coraline’s, and she’s rather a tease when it comes to Coraline’s relationships with guys. Enjoy her interview! Continue reading “Character Interview: Casabree Selene”
When creating characters, you’re often told to use a character profile. But do they really help you flesh out your characters or are they just laundry lists of useless facts you’ll never use? I think they usually tend to be a combination, and it depends on the profile. There are some profiles with more hard-hitting questions and there are some with more shallow questions, and how much you get out of a profile depends somewhat on what the balance is.
Profiles are also more or less helpful for each writer, since every writer is different. I tend to like them because they give me things to think about regarding the character that I won’t necessarily think of on my own, and then a place to write them down, but others just find them time-consuming and would rather learn about their characters through writing. Neither of these is wrong, and I’ve used both methods in the past.
So what should you look for or put on a character profile? Continue reading “Character Profiles – Help or Waste?”
Parr is a character who popped up uninvited in chapter 4 of The King’s Paladin and immediately caught my attention, partially because he sprung into existence with a full character arc, backstory, and relationship arc with Coraline (i.e. he’s the most fully-formed character to ever just show up). He’s the son of two Mandorian advisors and captain of King Shordin’s private guard. Enjoy his interview! Continue reading “Character Interview: Parr Renate”
