You’re probably not an omniscient narrator like Pennington, but that doesn’t mean you don’t share some of his other traits. Both of you are charismatic, strong-willed, and excellent at strategy. You’re a natural leader, but you don’t tolerate mistakes or stupidity. At best, you’re forceful and persuasive; at worst, you’re manipulative. You view sentiment as weakness, and would never admit to harboring any. You love a challenge and know just how to conquer it — unless that challenge involves a rebellious main character.
Your Fellow Characters
The first to risk danger for the sake of others, Prince Calder is always quick to act. He is straight-forward, practical, and often called reckless. He’s not too good at strategy, but makes up for it with his ability to improvise and adapt at a moment’s notice. However, he tends to see things as black or white. He has a strong faith in destiny, but takes issue with people interfering with that destiny — especially when those people are arrogant narrators.
Don’t let the title fool you. Princess Arianna isn’t your classic damsel in distress. She is warm and energetic, and loves to be around others. Highly opinionated, she can also be a bit stubborn. She’s good at reading people, and has a special talent for bringing out the best in them. Her family is most important to her — even if she does have three brothers dividing up her father’s kingdom.
Eustace can enjoy hours of discussion on the history of the Three Kingdoms — once you drag him away from his books. He is a perpetual bookworm, prizing knowledge above all else. As an idealist, he wants to use that knowledge to improve the world. He prefers solitude, and is often labeled as aloof and reserved. Of course, he’s just focused on the task at hand — a task that involves a dark secret.
Saydie has a few secrets up her sleeve — plus a few knives as well. She’s highly suspicious of others and their motives. But for the lucky few who earn her trust, she is a true and loyal friend. She relies heavily on her instincts, which hard-earned experience has taught her are always right. She also has a talent for seeing many possibilities where other people see only one — a trait Pennington will take advantage of in the coming novel.
