Looks like, once again, no one has any suggestions for character casting, which is totally okay, but the contest is still open! This week, I'd like to introduce a new character and another old one.
The first introduction is just a reminder of this character, as he only shows up in flashbacks.
James Porter is the husband to Margo Porter, and father to Anwen Porter. Descending from a long line of the same name, James was a devoted father, a dreamer, and a designer. A graphic artist by trade, he worked by commission on various projects, including illustrating books, designing maps, and occasionally spinning a few tales of his own.
Physical Characteristics: Not much is known about James' physical appearance. He was of average build, with brown hair, and wore glasses. He preferred comfortable clothes that were functional, and often had a studious air about him.
Personality: Though studious in his craft, James was easy to get along with. He loved to tease, but could be serious when needed. A devoted husband and father, James only wanted what was best for his family. He was dedicated, loving, and protective. Like his daughter, he was more than willing to give the shirt off his back to help another, often at the expense of himself. Perceptive and generally calm, he had a way of soothing over hurts and helping others see a broader perspective on life. He tended to bring the best out of people.
Brief History: James was born in New Hope to Nathan James and Jenna Loise Porter. After college, he met Margo, and they were married. Only a few years after Anwen was born, he felt compelled to move the family to Pallose, citing work as a reason. There, he worked various jobs to support his family, spinning fantastic tales to entertain his wife and daughter. When Anwen was around eleven, he died tragically. Before he died, he charged his young daughter to one day find their ancestral home and finish the work he'd started.
The Child (Emi)
Though not introduced by name, Emi is a mystery. A child of three to four years old, she visits both Tyler and Anwen at various different times.
Physical Characteristics: Emi is slight of build, almost elfin or Puck-ish in feature. She has darker red hair, like the dying embers of a fire. She also usually wears a long white dress of simple design. She is very active and agile.
Personality: Emi can be described as a bit of an imp and is decidedly playful. She likes to play but can be serious when she needs to be. She also likes being mysterious and is good at keeping a secret.
