Jennifer Williams (nee Paige)
Really does want to live her life in peace but that includes her mother not giving her additional grief. This means for Jennifer no magic but she’s finding it difficult to resist using magic altogether and Eileen knows that urge to “perform” will strengthen. Eileen, as ever, has not mentioned this. Jennifer would also like her mother to be totally honest with her! Also wants to live with Paul and Edward and to have a “normal” life.
The Chief Witch
Revenge. In her earlier years, she relished her friendship with Eileen but Queen Gwendolyn’s admittedly bad treatment of the Witch and her abandoned father, fuelling the Witch’s resentment and hatred of fairy royals, overcome that affection. The Witch really wanted to hit back at those who caused her hurt. Sadly, she took the view that if the innocent got in the way, too bad.
Brankaresh (Chief Wizard)
Power (especially magical gifts), riches and all that come with these things. Ideally a totally subservient Fairy Queen so his other fantasies get fulfilled as well! He has very little chance of achieving the latter unless he can use significant force, as he knows, and for that he needs more magical powers. The best source for that is of course the Queen! So he plays the game, pretending to be her devoted servant when he would far rather she was his devoted servant.
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
