Today I thought I'd do a fun little character interview with someone from Broken Glass. (These questions can be found at Further Up and Further In, a wonderful writing blog).
1) What is their full name and is there a story behind why they got it? Prince Darcy of Arcadia. Darcy means "dark one", a name that fits well with his personality.
2) How old are they, and when were they born? Darcy is around twenty years old; he was born just one year after his older brother Marius, leaving him second in line for the throne. Being second place in his family has always been kind of a sore spot for Darcy.
3) Describe their physical appearance. (Bonus questions: 1. What is their race/nationality/ethnicity? 2. Do you have a picture of them? If so, include it!) He has dark hair which has habit of falling over one eye. He's not very tall, but he's not short either. Basically, this Darcy:
4) Describe your character's personality first in one word, and then elaborate with a few sentences. Bitter. He wishes he had the firstborn because he believes that he deserves the throne more than Marius.
5) What theme song(s) fit their personality and story arc? Henry Jackman's Magneto from the X-Men First Class soundtrack.
6) Which one of the seven deadly sins describes your character? Um...a lot of them would fit him. Envy probably describes him the best, though.
7) If they were an element (fire, water, earth, air), which one would they be? Air. He can be practically invisible when he wants to. He's a first class eavesdropper.
8) What is their favorite word? Me. He's very selfish and self-centered.
9) Who’s one person they really miss? (It could be someone who’s passed away, or someone they’re not close to anymore, or someone who’s moved away.) No one, really. He's too busy with his own desires to care about anyone else.
10) What sights, sounds, and smells remind them of that person? Nothing really applies here...
So I hope you enjoyed this interview with Darcy! It's less than 10 days until The Five Glass Slippers comes out. If you haven't already, you can preorder a copy now from Amazon!
