Tarragon Character Introduction: Anwen Porter

This week is the last for our Character Casting Contest, which means it's your last chance to win a great prize before the official launch! So don't be shy and send in your suggestions!

(There will be a few minor characters introduced to you next week, but they will not be involved in this contest.)

This week's Character introduction is Anwen Porter.

Anwen Porter is the only child and daughter of James and Margo Porter. Descending from a long line of Key Keepers, she feels it her duty to fulfill her father's dying request to return to the Mountains of her ancestry.

Appearance: Anwen is of average build, standing about five foot four inches, (5'3.5", technically, but she likes to count that half inch as a whole.) and doesn't consider herself very athletic. More of an introvert, she always felt more at home in a library than on any sports team.  Her auburn hair sets off hazel-green eyes and a clear complexion. She likes to wear comfortable but stylish clothes, though nothing too trendy. She likes to make her own style. And she always carries around her father's wedding ring, wearing it on a chain around her neck, close to her heart.

Personality: Anwen is an introvert and tends to avoid confrontation when she can, though she is no stranger to hardship. Growing up, she was often teased by her peers, occasionally being bullied. She also witnessed her father's death, something that shook her to the core. In general, though, she is gentle, reserved, studious, and kind. She has a natural born curiosity but is humble and trusting, perhaps too much at times. She also tends to downplay her own importance, often putting her needs and wants aside for those of others, even at high cost to herself. Some would call her masochistic because of this, but she hates to make people worry and tends towards at least pretend a confident, self-assured nature where nothing phases her. She tends to internalize her emotions, instead of letting them out, which gets her into trouble.

A Brief History: Anwen's family migrated from the North Hope to Pallose when she was a young child. There, she attended public school. When she was around eleven year's old, her father died tragically. Since then, she has devoted her life to filling his dying request, to one day return to the Mountains of her ancestry. With little else to go one than a journal of a great grandmother, she has finally come to the point of fulfilling her father's request.

Anwen is our main female in this story, so please pick someone amazing for her! Get it right and you could win a signed copy of the book!

Last week's winner is Allison Jackson! Her suggestion of this dishy hunk (we don't even know his name so if you know who he is, please let us know!) is an almost perfect fit. Just need to change that hair color. And maybe get him a tan.
