I think my favorite side character is Wisterin. She’s spunky, teasing, halfway obnoxious depending on what character you ask, and a LOT of fun to write. She’s the girl who wears lavender even though purple is a color reserved for nobility. (At least it’s not plum.)
Wisterin likes the brisk weather of fall, but doesn’t like that it means winter is on its way. Plus she doesn’t like most apples, which is the main thing at the castle that time of year, and she couldn’t care less about the gods that are celebrated in the fall. Basically, as long as she avoids the celebrations and activities in the fall she’s fine, but she enjoys activities for their social value and thus attends anyway. So she tolerates fall.
