Main Character Spotlight #3


Hey, young bloods! Inspired by the lovely Katie @ Bookwise, today I'm spotlighting several of my favorite main characters using a six-prompt character challenge. For four of my main characters from various works, I'll share a contradiction in their personality, their Myers-Briggs personality type, their favorite color, how they'd slay a dragon, their biggest secret, and where they see themselves in ten years. Without further ado, I hope you enjoy!

Sage Kolominov
The Information Broker from The Spies Just Shy of Legendary

Contradiction: He's very logical and has sound practical judgement, yet he enjoys brown sugar pop tarts.

Myers-Briggs: ISTJ. Sage is reserved yet sincere and very analytical and hardworking.

Favorite Color: Purple.

How He'd Slay a Dragon: Hire a guy to do it. Or sharpshoot it in an eye. He could probably hit it if he were close range.

Biggest Secret: He pretends his contract with Siobhan is all business, but in truth, he cares more deeply for her. It's not in a romantic way; she's like a best friend or a big sister. However, he's skeptical about letting her know that.

10 Years: Possibly still working with Siobhan? Probably not, though. He'll probably be freelancing a lot more. He knows he'll still be in the trade, though. Once you get into his sort of business, it's nearly impossible to get out.

Karissa Goldlock
The Fae Thief from Karissa Goldlock's Guide to (Almost) Utterly Everything

Contradiction: Karissa has little use for sentimentality in the present - seeking out friendship, sympathizing with others' feelings - but she holds very tightly to her past and memories. 

Myers-Briggs: ENTP. Karissa is very inventive and enthusiastic about new ideas and challenges.

Favorite Color: Orange.

How She'd Slay a Dragon: Karissa's been very skilled in acrobatics and gymnastics since a young age, so that would definitely play a role. She'd probably try to make a long-distance kill using a knife, bow, or other long-range weapon.

Biggest Secret: For a lot of the book, Karissa's keeping her true identity as an exiled criminal secret (and for good reason).

10 Years: Alive, hopefully. Karissa is on the run for almost the entire book, and her main focus is to survive each individual day.

Skylar Anastose
The Strategist from The Spies Just Shy of Legendary

Contradiction: Skylar is super accepting and gentle with those he likes, but towards people he doesn't like, he's really judgmental and mean.

Myers-Briggs: ESTP. Skylar is great at problem-solving and negotiating, but he's also really outgoing and spontaneous.

Favorite Color: Red.

How He'd Slay a Dragon: Yikes! He has no idea. He would probably run to the sidelines/a survival bunker as fast as possible.

Biggest Secret: While working as a secretary to the former U.N. Ambassador, he conspired with Russia to spy on the U.S.

10 Years: He has no idea! His life has changed SO MUCH in the past ten years - university, the State Department, the U.N., and now working as a strategist for a U.S. branch of the yakuza (Japanese mafia). He doesn't think he could predict what will happen in the future. 

Xavius Blackgrail
The Assassin from Death of the Skies

Contradiction: Xavius yearns to be able to perceive himself as good. He wants his morality to be level with what society perceives as moral; he wants people to admire him for his goodness. He wants to be able to admire himself for his goodness. However, he often lies and cheats in order to achieve that end.

Myers-Briggs: INTJ. Xavius is very innovative and strategic, and he doesn't like working with others to achieve his ends.

Favorite Color: Blood red, like his favorite apples. Like power. Like death.

How He'd Slay a Dragon: It would definitely be a stealth job, probably long-distance, like Karissa. He doesn't like bows and arrows, though, so he'd likely use a throwing knife. 

Biggest Secret: He's in disguise as a Watchman for most of the series, so his true identity is a huge secret.

10 Years: He wants to be living in Galhorn, for sure. Cavanor's capital, a city built in and on rocky cliffs right next to the sea, is incredibly dear to his heart. He'd also like to marry Sabina, a thief and spy he works with during the series and finds himself falling in love with.

Let's chat! Which of these characters is your favorite? (Mine is probably Xavius, but shhhh, don't tell the others.) Who are your favorite characters in literature? In your own writing? Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles.

Namarië,

  2. Karrisa Goldlock is my favorite out of all the characters. ENTPs currently enamor me, despite their argumentative behavior! I'm loving your new header, by the way-- it suits your blog well!

    1. Writing from her POV is so fun; she's so salty and snarky about everything. XD Ahhh, thank you!

    1. Haha, that probably makes sense, since these are all characters from my own works. I'm glad you enjoyed reading, though!
