Tarragon Character Introduction: Courtney Willis

This week's character introduction is for Courtney Willis.

Oh, and just in case you wondered, anyone can enter, more than once. After this week, there are only two contests left! So get casting!
Courtney Willis is a rather flamboyant and self-centered teen of seventeen. A native to the Village of Lindwurm, she considers herself an expert in the area, and loves to chase the boys, especially tourists. Her goal in life is to capture the heart of Tyler Durand, the only boy she hasn't managed to wrap around her little finger.

Physical Appearance: Courtney has blond hair  of a medium length, and muddy-hazel eyes. She prefers to wear trendy clothes, the better to catch unsuspecting boys' hearts. Considered a bit of a beauty in the Village, she has a high concept of herself and her looks. Living in a mountain village, she is very fit, with good stamina and endurance.

Personality: Courtney starts out rather shallow. She grew up with a sense of privilege that has gone to her head. Tending towards pettiness, she hates competition and will often turn up her nose at anything she deems beneath her. She also can't understand why Tyler won't just succumb to her good looks and charms. She is easily jealous, especially when it comes to Tyler. Deep down, she's very insecure and unsure of herself. When she's not pretending to be something she's not, she's often off on her own, wishing things were different. All she really wants is to be accepted for who she is, but is afraid of showing that more sensitive and dependable side to her peers.

Brief History: Born of local parents, Courtney has spent her entire life in Lindwurm Village. As a member of the elite, she gained a rather skewed vision of her importance in society. Wishing to be trained by the upper echelons of her class, she later changed her mind due to her mother's influence.

Courtney should be easier to find someone to play.  I've given you so much information about her! As such, I'm  upping the ante on this one.

 So let's see who you would pick and maybe you'll win a Tarragon map poster! And if that doesn't inspire you to spread the word, just wait until you see what next week's prize is! (poster measures appr. 11x17 in)

Last week's winner is Allison Jackson! While she was the only person to enter, her suggestion of Ian McKellen is causing me to possibly rethink my personal pick for the character of Kern Nurrim! Congrats!

Disclaimer: Any information collected about the winner will only be used to send the winning person's prize to them. Such information will not be stored, shared, sold, etc. So enter with confidence!

Tarragon Character Introduction: Kern Nurrim

This week's character introduction is for Kern Nurrim.

Kern Nurrim is the oldest of all the dragons. He is also the head of the Dragon Council, the highest governing body of the dragons.

Kern resembles the classic Western Style dragons of our world, with white scales. White symbolizes not only his age, but is associated with light, the sun, air, holiness, perfection, innocence, and purity.  He is also sometimes called, "One who creates".

Kern possesses several abilities, including the ability to manipulate matter, use Soul Sight, telepathy, and can transform his shape into anything he likes.

For this one, it might be best to think of someone who might make a good voice actor, or think of someone who is older and wise, grandfatherly, maybe. You can also find a dragon pic you think would best depict this fantastic dragon. Give it a shot and you could win!

The prize for the winning suggestion? A hand-crafted Tarragon Dragon logo pendant!

Last week's winner is  Allison Jackson! Her suggestion of Jack Reyner was pretty spot on! What do you think?

Tarragon Character Introduction: Callum Durand

Today's character introduction is Callum Durand.

Callum's appearance is similar to his brother, Tyler (who you will be introduced to later. Crazy, I know, but that's how I chose to do it.) His appearance, however, is different in that he has darker hair (think medium brown) and slightly taller (closer to six foot odd). He also tends to not show up often, only when he wants to make a point or bring bad news. Also, his eyes are a soft green in color. He's well built, but not overly muscled.

Not much is known about Callum, other then that he tends to be a bit of a prig, very stickler for rules, and has no problem letting other people know when they've done something they shouldn't.

Tyler's older brother (sort of), Callum has no problem lording over the younger boy. He also considers himself very wise and powerful.

Yes, another vague one, but I hope you'll do your best on picking an actor to portray him. Find a good one and you just might win a hand-crafted cell phone charm featuring the Tarragon dragon logo.

Last week's winner is Ashley Martinez with her nomination of Melissa McCarthy to play Madame Millard! What do you think? Ashley, please contact me to claim your prize!

Tarragon Charater Introduction: Madame Millard

Today's character introduction is for Madame Millard.

Madame Matilda Millard is the joint owner and proprietress of the Dridi Inn in the Village of Lindwurm. Enjoying the status of the upper echelons of the elite class in the village, Matilda is quite the force to be reckoned with. A bit of a busy body, she is respected, and feared, by her peers.

Physical appearance: Matilda is quite overweight, but is deceptively strong for her large girth. She is also a lot faster than most would give her credit for. She tends towards clothes that are comfortable and slightly out of fashion. She belongs to a somewhat older era.

Personality: Matilda is fastidious. She likes things in an exact way, bordering on sever OCD. She holds a tight reign on her business, and over her husband. She is a puppet master with a bit of a malicious streak to her. Like the others of her "rank", she feels herself entitled to all the best in life and has no problem scoffing at those beneath her. She also has no problem going after those who she feels threatens her plans.

Brief History: Born into the upper class, Matilda always knew she was destined for greatness. As she aged, eventually married, and watched her siblings marry and have children, she felt some small regret that she couldn't have offspring. But she found comfort in knowing her niece more than made up for her lack of children by acting as a surrogate daughter.

Hope that gives you enough to envision an actress perfect for this role! Tell us who your pick is for a chance to win a metal dragon pendant necklace!

Last week's winner is Tammy Holmes Windsor, who's emailed entry of Bradley Cooper seems to fit the role best! Congratulations, Tammy!
