It has always been so much easier for me to write their story knowing what my characters looked like and what their background and their history was because it gave me insight into their unique idiosyncrasies. From this... I knew how they were going to behave in any given situation... at least I hope I know. We shall see.
I have found inspiration in many places. The first man to step up to play one of the characters was Andrei Andrei. What a darling man.
If I could choose the most perfect man to play King Baj-rei Varda, it would be David Gandi. Looking at him has inspired many of the words
I wrote about this enigmatic king.
So I play this game where... when I see a drop dead hottie I say... "Who is he?"
The Contest for the Characters for the first Six Episodes is over and the Readers have Voted...
As we move into the next round more Characters will be up for grabs.
A Perfect Aidan Varda.
It all started out so simple... it sounded so easy
inside his head. The only expression that comes to
mind is...Can of Worms. And that is exactly what it
turned out to be.
Meet Aidan. His adventure kicked off the Chronicle in
The Changing of Jazadeem
We met Torrein in Book Two...
The Prisoner of Nimm
Torrein and his twin brother Taial were kidnapped and held prisoner in Lord Fallons dungeon.
In 'Prisoner' we met Torrein... this is his episode. But we didn't get to meet Taial until "The Tempting of Fate" where they rescue him. We saw him again in "Mask" but his story will be an OtherWorlds episode.
Readers overwhelmingly LOVED Pedro for this role and I can see why... he is sexy and intense but you can tell he has this soft side.
We met Reza in Book One
But his Episode is Book Three...
The Tempting of Fate
There is no question about it that this
image embodied the persona of Reza.
He has been a favorite which just goes
to prove that we just love those bad boys
Especially when they come in packages like REZA
Meet the Characters
The camera loves him. So very beautiful
He could play any role he wants but almost everyone thinks he would be the best choice to play
You voted him the best Meisha.
He is the head of "The
Watchers" on the
OtherWorld of Earth.
He is in charge of keeping it safe and right now he is having a tough time.
We meet him in
The Tempting of Fate
and he is a major player in
Dark Irresistible Things
It will be a while before I hook him up.
He has his eye on the
Boy is he in for a surprise.
The NIMM... are those sexy Blue eyed blondes.
Zan was in book two
The Prisoner of Nimm.
He wanted the Assassin. His persistence endeared him to her and then things took a turn and not for the better. Right now, Zan is in stasis healing from his wounds. When he wakes
up he will be a long way from home. But ... I'll let
you read it.
Most of you liked this sweet man for Hiro.
I agree. He seemed to look like a man with a dangerous past that got religion and is now doing penance and looking for love... wishing for family.
Hiro began the Eathbound series. We met him in Book One... and we discovered something really important about him in book two. He briefly made an appearance in book three, but Book Four is his episode.
The Adventure at MoonFlower Rock
It was Hiro that was the catalyst for setting the Diabolicon free. So far, he has been a favorite son to many of my readers.
This character illustration was created by Mariny from
The Women of The Varda
I didn't get a lot of entries for the female characters.
The few that were sent in were quite intuitive in nature.
You definitely know what you like and what you want to see.
This is a character illustration of
the Diabolicon Witch
We heard about Lord Fallon in Book One...
We met him in Book Two...
But his Episode is Book Five...
The Mask of the Master
Finding the right Lord Fallon has been tough.
There were three front runners.
The contest is over and number #3
was voted most likly to be Lord fallon.
I am on board
This illustration is original to The Varda Chronicle
Created by Sam Hogg
Azrael was in Episode Five with Lord Fallon. Azrael was set free from the ShadowWorld with help from Zee... the desert witch of prophecy. He then helped Lord Fallon come to the OtherWorld of Earth to hunt down and kidnap Kess.
He will be back in The Black Express Cafe' but he won't get his own story for a while but he does join the Watchers. He has a past... and it will catch up to him.
If I could choose... this one would play Jadon.
We meet Jadon in
The Prisoner of Nimm
and he saved Lord Fallons life in
Mask of the Master
But his episode is
Dark Irresistible Things...
Which he is...
His role continues into
The Black Express Cafe' and on.
His father was Varda and his mother was one of the illusive Dex. He is also infected with the Naiad Disease making him extremely gifted.
I was really happy to see that all of you saw him as Jadon too. What a doll.
And then there is Nomadi... Set free from the Temporal Rift,
he has an agenda and has been a pain in Lord Fallon's backside since he arrived... thwarting Fallon's plan to kidnap Kess.
And then there is Kess... the woman that won't choose between them.
We meet Nomadi in Hiro's episode but he shows up again in
The Mask of the Master.
This Diabolcon will be a major player and has joined forces
with the Watchers.
I had Sam Hogg create his character for me and
won this role... overwhelmingly... hands down. Once again proving... Good Girls Love Bad Boys
Nomadi of the Diabolicon
Codan-rei was in Book 1: He had been captured by the Sulkar and his memories taken from him. He was a slave and used for his place shifting skills to do some very bad things. He kidnapped Sasha but she recognized him and saved him from the Sulkar.
Codan's mother was one of the illusive Dex. He was born on the forbidden world of Tyria. When Fallon was mortally injured, Codan helped to save his life. He will be coming back in another episode.
We met him and hated him in Book One. He was the renegade shifter that was working for the Physician.
He kidnapped Leeanan and then went after Sasha.
He showed back up in Book Three The Tempting of Fate and ... SPOILER ALERT... The Assassin trapped him.
Right now he is in Reza's dungeon being ... Re-conditioned.
He is one of the Nimm sons of Beau-Dane so Varda Blood flows in his veins but he didn't know that. And we just don't know yet if he will continue his evil ways or if what Aju has planned for him will work.
Ja'Veen cleans up real nice.
He can definitely pass for human.
From a place where all Legend was born
and all Myth resides...
A Place where darkness has found its home
From an impossible prison older than time
He is now free...
Born to be a savior
Turned by Darkness
No one is safe
I will be back with MORE....
