October’s Evil Character Countdown, Part 4
Are you ready? It’s almost here! Halloween is TOMORROW!! Did you spend the weekend binge-watching Stranger Things like everyone else? Or were you putting the last-minute touches on your costume, or carving pumpkins? If you’re looking for something more to get you into the Halloween mood, look no further, because we have our last two Evil Character Profiles by authors Kimberly Mitchell and P.T. McHugh ready for you! Grab a handful of candy corn and get ready to explore two more villains from Glass House!
Human, animal, thing, or vegetable: human … but he has a gifting (dum dum dum!)
Hair color and style: white hair, even though he’s in his early twenties
Eye color: blue
Distinguishing feature: his hair and his charismatic voice
Favorite outfit: light pants and tunic, just like everyone else in Eliot
Language/Accent/Dialect: Joshua is an Abed, and his dialect is Abed, but the Abed and the Nas share a common language.
Occupation: Dreamer … and leader of the Abed rebellion in Eliot
Describe his Evil Lair: Elior is a cave hidden in the desert outside the city. There, Joshua trains the Gifted Abed for war against the Emperor.
Which is located in: the desert
Mode of travel: walking or a Hawk (fan craft)
If he were walking down the street, he would… convince other Abed to join him in Elior … and use their giftings to fight the Emperor.
As a child, he… led a normal life in his village outside the city, until the war over water. But when that happened, he was captured, held, and tortured by the Emperor. Which led to where we are now.
Best friends with: Amira
Sworn enemy of: the Emperor
If your character lived in the present day/modern world…what would be their favorite…
Movie/tv show: Stranger Things! He’d definitely be interested in Eleven’s special abilities.
Song: Probably some dark classical music, perhaps a requiem.
Book: Probably a chess/strategy book. Maybe the Art of War, too.
Ideal first date: This is almost laughable considering the world they live in, but Joshua would probably want to take her to Elior and show her the refuge he’s built for the Abed.
If your evil character had a motto, it would be: Giftings were given to the Abed for one reason: to fight the Emperor. If you don’t fight, you’re choosing to die, because the Emperor won’t allow gifted Abed to live free.
