So, in honor of yet another piece of magnificent artwork, I've decided to talk a little bit about one of my characters: Simon Trevor.
If you read Wolves and Wild Roses, my short story (check the extras section on the front page or click here) the name Trevor might feel familiar. That particular character, Sonia Trevor, is a direct ancestor of the beloved hunter Simon Trevor from my main novel, The Paladin.
Simon is a hunter, coming from a long line of hunters, or at least he claims so. He's extremely talented and doesn't let a moment go by without reminding those around him about it. He fancies himself something of a local rock star, as well, using his monster hunter hobby as a public persona, fully realizing that no one will think he's being truthful. In a strange way, this lets him live out his real self without having to worry about the consequences.
He's light on brains, but heavy on talent and, strangely, his own, twisted form of empathy. He tends to give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that others are good, and most importantly, that they like him. Obviously. Who wouldn't?
Let's hit the hot button though; he's a little... overwhelming? His personality is, of course, larger than life, but he's also a shameless flirt. For anyone. Man, woman, vampire, if it has a pulse (or not, in some cases) he's down to have a good time. And he's more than willing to let you know about that, too.
Abrasive, but lovable in a strange way, Simon Trevor is a character that, for good or bad, will certainly leave a lasting impact on you. Now, check him out in his full glory...
