Good Morning. Pull out a blanket, pack a picnic, grab your current novel and enjoy the sun. As a Steampunk writer I have become very familiar with certain characters, even the average modern person know, for instance Queen Victoria, Tesla, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and of course Sherlock Holmes.
I'm sure you're wondering which character is my favorite. My favorite to read has always been, and probably always will be, Count Dracula. In all the different aspects he's been in, but my favorite is Bram Stoker's version because of the love story between Dracula and Mina. As a writer, I have written hundreds of characters, but it is the hero of my current novel that is my absolute favorite so far.
Dante has spent his life battling the power corrupted creatures of the world with his trusted Amber Phoenix Daggers. He is handsome, ancient, and not afraid to sacrifice himself for the good of the human population. I'm sure that by now you're wondering why I put "ancient" in his description, right? Well, Dante is a being, an Ettari, from an ancient race of creatures, similar to vampires but with important differences. Yes, he still drinks blood when he needs to, but no he's not allergic to sunlight. Anymore. Oh, did I mention he's a brilliant inventor? Dante has created a horseless carriage among many other really neat inventions.
Dante came to me out of a dream, of a brilliant minded man who was creative but knew how to use a weapon when needed. He stuck around poking at me every time I saw something that resonated with him, until I could do no other than write his story. I hope in the near future you'll be able to join me in his world and fall in love with him as much as I have.
Who is your favorite character and why?
