Character Profile: Edric

Edric Landrus has been a feature of this series since the beginning. Though he never got his own point of view- something I occasionally regret- he’s always been a key figure and one of the instigators of all the trouble.

Character Profile: Maryna

Maryna Bernotas, Princess of Terragand, is the somewhat unlikely fictional counterpart to the grumpy Karl Ludwig. As the oldest child of Kendryk and Gwynneth, she fills the role of the heir to the disputed kingdom. She’s just a little girl

Character Profile: Daciana

Ah, one of our favorite bad girls, who’s been with us almost from the beginning! Teodora’s best girl friend and an even worse terror, Daciana Tomescu has caused trouble for just about all the main characters in the series. She’s

Real Historical Figures Turned into Fantasy Characters

One of the great joys of writing the Desolate Empire series has been fictionalizing real people. There are some huge benefits to this approach. I can turn about half of them into women and/or I can slander them egregiously. It’s

Character Profile: Braeden

I recently realized that I’ve written character profiles for characters that don’t have a POV. Or at least they don’t right now. I’m having serious second thoughts about Teodora as usual, the troublesome bitch. But anyway, I thought I’d get

Character Profile: Arian

Arian Orland, Count of Hornfels, is an ambiguous character. Well, he’s actually pretty bad, but working in service of the good at least some of the time. Since he’s loosely based on Christian of Brunswick, he wasn’t even going to

Character Profile: Teodora

We’ve given the good guys their due; now it’s time for the more villainous. Since Ferdinand II was the last historical figure discussed, it stands to reason that I’ve based a character on him. Of course, its a given that

Character Profile: Gwynneth

Even though some of my female characters are in the process of being relegated to second-banana, at least in terms of point of view, there are still some pretty important girls in this story. Kendryk might be the big mover
