A few weeks ago I posted a sketch of Micah, the fire sorcerer, who beta readers seem to like waaay more than this guy here. Meet Peter Fitzgerald, one of my most intriguing and difficult protagonists. The reader may not like him much, but I just find him fascinating. Why? Because he is an unstable dominant personality and has a lethal personality. I'll admitt that I was thinking of a combination of Sub-Zero and the Ice Queen from 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,' when I first thought of Peter.
In the first book, Peter emerges into his power and basically takes ownership of his lover. Although Micah is more powerful than Peter, the loose vulcan canon in the relationship is definitely more lethal.
I am fascinated by the idea of the dark side (Anakin) and the fallen (Harvey Dent) and I want to use Peter to explore those ideas my own way. I want to see Peter get stronger, become more wicked, a tad more perverse and more unstable.
