This is for the I'm hearing voices blog hop that Cassie is hosting over at Reading, Writing & Loving it So go check out other blogs on the hop (after reading mine of course).
I went back and forth for a while on which character to sit down on the couch today, I have a few that are fairly uncooperative, especially when it comes to talking. But after a while I decided on Fitzroy, for a few reasons. Fitzroy is my villain, but he really isn't a bad guy, he just sees things a little different from the way everyone else does. He does things because he thinks they are necessary for the greater good. The issue that I've been having with him lately is that, I dont really believe him. So I thought this would be a good chance to try to flush out some of his personality.
So without further ado:
Fitzroy looked suspiciously around the room, blue eyes darting from place to place. His wavy hair neatly falling just short of his shoulders, he was tall, and slender, wiry muscles hinted beneath the tunic. He wore the latest court style in cut, but the clothes were muted in color, with a sword hanging in its scabbard at his side.
“You wanted to speak to me?” He asked?
“Yes, I’ve got some questions, for a blog post.”
“I’m to busy for this.” Fitzroy snapped.
“Don’t be ridiculous, you will sit down and answer these questions.”
“What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?”
“Vulnerabilities are things you exploit in other people. You can’t have vulnerabilities if you don’t let yourself care about people. “ Fitzroy answered
“What do people believe about you that is false?”
“That I killed my father. I didn’t kill him, or order him killed. In his own way he was a good man, harsh, but still good.” (FYI he is lying here. He did kill his father, kinda)
“What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?”
“I don’t really have a best friend. Damien is probably the closest I have, although he works for me. He would probably say Quinndalin. Although she isn’t exactly a fatal flaw, of course, he could also say that I don’t consider consequences, but that’s just because I don’t tell him everything.”
“What would that same friend say is your most redeeming quality”
“Probably my intellect. Although, just because of his bizarre since of loyalty he might say that.”
“What do you want the most? What would you do to get it?”
“I want stability. It’s too easy for the current system to fall apart, the church is fragmented, the different temples bicker amongst themselves, and the congress of lords is just as bad. I wont let anything get in the way, I expect resistance, and I expect the cost to be high, but if we do nothing now, everything will be destroyed. “
“Okay, you can go now.”
So there you go. This is Fitzroy. You will meet Damien and probably Quinndalin later, although Quinndalin is difficult to write, more because she is almost entirely non-verbal.
