C is for Christopher–The Element Fire

images (3)

The FIRE personality is a natural-born leader, intelligent, warm, confident, adventurous and innovative. Fire enjoys excitement, intimacy, sensation and passion. Fire stands out in any crowd and draws people to him. But he can be dominant and forceful and although he may appear insensitive and lacking in compassion, Fire actually has great empathy for others. He can be highly emotional, dramatic and impulsive. Fire can is often plagued with anxiety, agitation, frenzy, bizarre perceptions, nervous exhaustion and insomnia.

In my novel, Christopher—a soul caught in purgatory and sent back to earth—is the human incarnation of the element fire (hmm, wonder where he might have been headed) and he represents one of the four jewels in the Ring of Solomon. He is the past love interest of our heroine, Lily, and therefore a necessary evil in the eyes of Eli, our hero.

I wrote the character of Christopher in an early draft before I decided to make him Fire. Funny how what I wrote actually matches the personality of Fire.

    Hard to go wrong with a fire character. They’re always the coolest. 🙂 Looking forward to more!

    Fire is a seductive and powerful element. Maybe you were unconsciously channelling Fire when you first thought of Christopher – sometimes writing is Zen like that 🙂

    Sounds like he’s a very interesting character. It’s always good when your subconscious seems to be writing the details that you didn’t know you needed :).

    Interesting take on character development. Curious to see where it goes.
