I never thought when I started writing my novel that I was going to have a favorite character . It’s hard enough just writing the other characters . But all in all. I do. There is this character in my work in progress novel named Chemsen. He is a trickster character that looks like a raven. He can shapeshift into both the human and the raven. But he is not mortal . He is a Viator of Caelum . And I love writing this character so much.
The reason being is he likes to bug and tease the other characters . His antics and phrases are so snappy , that the other characters love to hate him. But there are some characters that will eventually love him.
Even though he is only a supporting character in my first novel , he is in almost in every scene and he barely speaks any dialogue .The dialogue he does speak is aggravating for the main characters because he speaks in a way where he is not telling the whole truth, yet he is telling them what they need to know. I have some pretty good ideas for where his character arc is going and well you just have to wait and see .
I feature him at the end of this prequel that I wrote connected to my novel and he appears in a short story I’m currently writing. I want to say I am going to write a short story solely about him and his adventures but I don’t know yet.
I will see where this writing takes me. With that thought I recently added his character board to my Pinterest. It was pretty hard finding his pic ideas. But I did eventually find some cool ones . And through my search I found an interesting way to describe and show his physical transformation and I can’t wait to add it to my novel.
Since I don’t show his transformation throughout the novel . Although I do show his human form briefly as a memory when he interacts with Cristan in the 2nd chapter of my novel. I’m probably going to show his transformation fully at the very end of the novel. It’s going to be so cool . I can’t wait to write it.
Take a look and let me know what you think about his character board .
