Story: The Rogue King Saga – The Shadow Prince
Status: Student of the Draconic Estate Academy
Talsin is the last, and I do mean the very last, piece to fall into place for The Rogue King Saga. As the main, then rival, interest for one of the Main Characters, her presence helped me flesh out what I saw as the less-interesting of the trio narrating the story (yup, I think a Shadow Speaker with a talking, defective vampire horse isn’t interesting).
Her past took on a rather sad note pretty quickly and then, because I like torturing my characters, the note got sour and ever sadder.
And whenever I hear that Katy Perry song “The One That Got Away”, I instantly think of Talsin. The chorus is especially bang on.
This is how I imagine her being dressed for the academy’s end of year dance. Pity it gets ruined.
