And so we come to the last installment of the Road to NaNoWriMo! Behind the scenes the story’s plot is being set up, the story’s world exists, the main groups that make up the world are a reality and now those groups will also be having faces representing them in the story. That’s right, the cast for Over the Edge is here at last! All of these characters were players in the original Inferno story and as the story, the world and groups have changed to fit the re-imagining , their ‘character profiles’ too had to be adapted (a couple of them quite considerably!). Some will of course be playing a bigger role than the others, but these are the characters who will be taking centre-stage during the coming month. The descriptions here will be fairly short, as the details that I’m leaving out will probably give away too much on the story, but I believe they should be able to give at least some idea on the characters the spotlights will be on.
Caldor Te’lesh. A young man, barely of age, living in the blockaded land. Having seen much horror in his relatively short life under Sechshares occupation, he is determined to do something about the situation of his land and people and is trying to decide whether or not to join the ‘main militia’ in the armed fight against Sechshares.
Commander Lecenko. The leader of the ‘main militia.’ Charismatic and idealistic, he can also be ruthless and allows no opposition in his attempts to achieve his goals of defeating Sechshares and freeing his people.
Akrin Melroc. An old man who has witnessed the initial Sechshares invasion firsthand and fought against it until reaching old age.
Representative Novac. Formerly a resistance fighter against Sechshares, now the head of the oppressed people’s official government. He is mostly a figurehead and puppet of Sechshares.
Lord Aras de Shares. The authoritarian ruler of Sechshares and head of the de Shares family that founded the state. A firm believer in Sechshares en Eisei superiority.
Mara de Shares. A relative to Lord Aras and a soldier in the Sechshares military. She is beginning have doubts about Sechshares’ actions after serving in the border area for a while.
Lady Kyana. The zealous head of the Eisei organization and a member of the family that founded the Eisei ideology and provided the Eisei’s leaders since its foundation.
Captain Shana Amraphel. An unquestioningly loyal veteran Eisei shock trooper serving in the border area.
And now, I will be continuing to get the outline of the story as ready as possible before tomorrow, when NaNoWriMo will actually begin! I’m pretty excited, if, I’ll admit, also a bit nervous. I have a good feeling about it, though. Tomorrow will mark the first day of a new era of writing, one in which I actually finish the work I start! And it. Shall. Be. Glorious! … *cough* Yes, it’s going to be a tough but fun time and I hope you’ll be there along the way! The next time I’ll be presenting the first of my (hopefully thirty) writing logs! So please…
Until then, everyone! Wish me luck! ^_^
