Character Spotlight: Christopher

This is a character how actually appears in a lot of my works although he goes unnamed in several. He’s sort of like an Angel but has a brief time on earth as a Nepharil in Innocent Hearts. I’ve always been a little unsure exactly what I wanted to do with this character and it’s the reason he’s unnamed in so many of his appearances. If I want to decide that it’s a different character in the other stories I still can.

His biggest role is in Innocent Hearts and it’s where he is named and definitely flesh and blood. As a Nepharil he is a human with wings. The Nepharil were a group of humans who were gifted wings by Tanayth as a reward but they’ve since lost their respect for the creator of their world. Christopher is an exception to the rest of the controlling male dominated Nepharil society and does what he can to re-address the balance, while waiting for the right time to go all out to change his society.

This is mostly what Learning to Fly is about. He does what he can to help his niece and give her a strong position. He also helps Bronwen in The Path Home. Letting her go, despite his brother’s desire to kidnap the unfortunate half-elf.

At some point I’m hoping to write a sequel to Innocent Hearts and Christopher will be the main character in that sequel, making him my second male character to take on a male lead role.

Christopher has been the rock in Liza’s world her whole life, her teacher, mentor and the widowed husband of another Nepharil she had a lot of respect for so he’s definitely the gentle leader type.

In The Path Home a different side of him is seen. He’s the warrior in his golden armour with his large sword and quick reflexes. Someone not to be messed with.

All of these traits will hopefully be shown more in his sequel but that won’t be out for a while. It is still in the works though.
