Character Name: I am Ser Colin i’Nola, of the Order of the Morning
Which book/world do you live in? I was born and raised in the kingdom of Kholast, and I fight in the service of King Boris III. (In the novella, With a Broken Sword)
Tell us about yourself: I am the newest, and youngest, Knight of the Morning, which none of my fellows will let me forget. I squired for Ser Jane i’Julia for four years. First blooded at the Battle of Winter Creek. Knighted for valor at the Stone Hills Betrayal.
What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?
Ser Jane would say my greatest weakness was “exuberance.” Usually, she meant impatience to prove myself.
As for my greatest strength, it feels boastful to answer such a question myself. If I must answer, then determination. Though I am the last knight between the Berledthi invaders and the people of Three Bridges, I will not yield and I must not fail.
Name three important people/creatures/institutions in your world (such as lovers, pets, government institutions, leaders, gods etc).
1) The Order of the Morning, of course, and its members. Especially my mentor, Ser Jane.
2) Terrwyn. Only a seamstress, but an impressive woman, and the leader of the Three Bridges Resistance Army.
3) Three Bridges Resistance Army. Hardly an army. A collection of dockworkers, fishers, crafters and traders. But they have spirit. And spirit goes a long way.
What does ‘heroism’ mean to you?
Who will stand in defiance of certain defeat? Who will risk his own life to save others? Call that man a hero, but don’t expect him to accept the title. To him, there is no other option.
What do you think of your ‘creator’?
If he is responsible for those foul Querain sorcerers and their evil plans for the good people of Three Bridges, then he must be a sick individual.
Give us your favourite piece of advice:
“Kings come and go. Borders shift and change. It’s the people that matter.”
