The world is far from black and white. In fact, it is shaded far more in a spectrum of colors than in any monochromatic fashion. This is the case for everything in life. Choices of right and wrong, good and evil, kind and malevolent are rarely cut and dry. Every aspect of our existence can be quantified by degrees of moral acceptability.
That is the case when writing, as well. The good guys are not completely without faults, just as the bad guys have some redeeming traits. Now, those traits may not be ones that you share. However, they must exist in order to give the character depth.
I bring this up to highlight one of our favorite characters in the world of Necromancers’ Pride. His name is Eryk, and although he fights for a cause that is just, his motives are not completely altruistic.
With the release of book 2 in the saga, Tides of War, just around the corner, D.W. and I wanted to give you a look at one of the characters we really have a great time brining to life.
In Tarune, just as on Earth, life is made up of many, vibrant colors. The good guys are flawed, and sometimes, may not act like a good guy. Do you know what that is called? Being human. We like to consider ourselves good people, but sometimes we are moved by rage, jealousy, lust and every other possible emotion that causes us to make choices that may not be the best for us.
Sometimes, though, those choices can be an awful lot of fun. So, without further ado, here is a man who may not always make the right choices, but certainly does have a lot of fun in the process.
Who are you looking forward to reading about in Tides of War?
