Introducing: Olivia

Olivia’s an interesting character. She shows up in the first half of the book along with her family. It’s really until the second half of the book though that you learn about who she really is. At first glance, she seems to just be a quiet, easygoing girl, and she is. But there’s more to her than that. She’s fiercely loyal and loves her best friend Ella, which is why she’s one of my favorite main female characters (and also why I decided that the majority of the second book is about her!). Anyway, I guess I should actually introduce you to the character, instead of just ranting about how amazing she is. (Can ranting and amazing be used in the same sentence? I guess as an English Major I should know these things).

Name: Olivia Anne Drake

Nickname: Liv, Livvy, ‘Livia (only Peter calls her this)

Age: 4 in the first half, 18 in the second half

Hair: Long, Straight, Light Blonde

Eyes: Green

Height: 5′ 4″

Clothing: Lots of dresses in varying shades of Green. She will also wear a Dark Green Tunic, Dark Grey Leggings, Boots, and a Dark Gray Cloak.

Weapons: She has a competent knowledge of all weapons, but uses knives masterfully.

Personality: Sweet, Caring, and Easygoing. She generally goes along with whatever Ellery wants to do. She’s not always up for the antics Leah wants to enact. But when she does go along, she’s always right in the middle of the action. She’s fiercely loyal to Ella and the rest of their friends. She and Ella have been best friends since they first met. 

Status: Daughter of the deceased Duke of Hargrove, Younger Sister to the present Duke of Hargrove, Niece of King Shawn of Weldon.

Name Means: Olive

So there you have it folks, Olivia Drake! She’s going to be incredibly fun to write I do believe. As a side note, that new story I’m planning out right will actually end up fitting into a timeline that tells the history of Creallin. I’m quite psyched about the way my world is beginning to unfold and the stories have gone from a trilogy to a series of between 12 and 15 books (if  not more). 

Until Next Time, 



Interlude: New Story Idea

Alright, so this is obviously not Olivia’s profile. It’s coming, I promise! I’ll plan on posting it on Friday, but don’t hold me to that! Anyway, this weekend, a brand new story idea popped into my head. This doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop working on my present work, but it does mean that  now have two works vying for attention in my brain. As it stands right now, Creallin is still at the top of my list to work on. Of course, homework takes precedence over all things fun! (Maybe I’ll have more luck actually writing this next semester while I’m taking Creative Writing. We’ll see! Depending on how things go with this new story, which is also fantastical but includes an awesome assassin/spy character who I would love to be, I may begin posting characters from it as well.

Until Next Time,
