This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts - Part 1

artwork


I’ve been posting the new Character bios/images for Legacy of Ghosts, the second installment in the Amaranthine series (coming October 2010) over in my wordpress blog, but I wanted to share here too. Yes, I already have a viewable character gallery at http://JoleeneNaylor.com/#sog (under Characters) but since I needed to redraw Oren for the new book cover, and add some characters, I thought, “why not redo the lot?”

Except Jorick. He looks perfect, and I may never draw him again, but just copy and paste for eternity.

When I get the website redesign finished, the new character gallery will be in the Legacy of Ghosts section, and I’ll also add Claudius and Arowenia to Shades of Gray
since I drew them for Jonathan. (Until then, you can see them in my Flickr album)
Just to be really, really annoying, I’m going to post these in two separate blogs, so it doesn’t get ahead of the wordpress one, where I am posting one character per blog. (Oh! The slowness!). So, as the announcer for Gatchaman used to say, “Look forward to it!”



WARNING:
CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR SHADES OF GRAY! THE CHARACTER BIOS BELOW MAY RUIN SOME OF THE SURPRISES IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT YET. (OR MAYBE NOT.)



Jorick:

Jorick

Hair: Long black hair
Eye color: so dark they look black
Height: 6’1”

A dark, enigmatic vampire who’s set himself up as Katelina’s protector, though she isn’t sure why. He blames himself for Katelina’s involvement and her current, battered state, so when Oren invites him to join a new war, he declines, and instead takes her to his house by the sea to heal. But, as secretive as he is mysterious, Jorick isn’t one for straight answers. What is his real motivation? And what does he have hidden in the locked room at the end of the hall? Even more important, how long can he resist before he joins Oren and launches them both into another bloody battle?

Katelina Mauldin:

Katelina

Hair: long blonde
Eye color: blue
Height: 5’ 6”

When her friend with benefits, Patrick, was murdered, Katelina was drawn into the secret world he’d left behind - a world of darkness, death and vampires! After the events of Shades of Gray, Katelina just wants some rest and normalcy, but everyone in the “real world” would freak if they saw her all bandaged up! So, when Jorick invites her to stay with him and heal, she jumps at the chance. But is that her real motivation, or just another lie she’s telling herself? How long can she straddle the fence between day and night before she has to finally choose?


Oren

Oren

Hair: Golden tawny
Eye color: amber
Height: 5’ 10”

Jorick’s friend and Fledgling, Oren suffers at the recent loss of his wife and children at the hands of the Executioners. His war with Claudius finally over, Oren turns his thoughts to revenge, and plans to fight The Guild, the vampire government, and get revenge for his murdered family. But, when Jorick refuses to join him, his chances of winning look smaller and smaller. Will he really leave Jorick in peace, or will he persist until his Master can’t refuse any longer?


Torina

torina

Hair: Red
Eye color: green
Height: 5’6”

Oren’s sister. One look at her slinky dresses, long nails and pouty lips and anyone can identify her as a man eater. But under her sexy façade hides an angry woman who will stop at nothing for revenge. The real instigator in the war against Claudius, now she’s turned her eyes to Kateesha. But will she be able to talk Oren into changing his plans?

Kateesha

Kateesha

Hair: black
Eye color: deep brown
Height: 5’9”

Kateesha is Jorick’s sister in blood; created by the same master, Malick, to be Jorick’s mate. She longs to fulfill this role, though Jorick blatantly rejected her after the battle with Claudius. Still, it seems Jorick isn’t her only goal. Rumors say that she is building a war coven to fight The Guild, and she’ll go to any length to instigate an attack. But if she’s fighting The Guild, and Oren’s fighting The Guild, will that make them allies or enemies?



Look for Part 2 in a few days!
