A Modern Legend- Page One Hundred Sixty-six

Something that I do with all of my stories is create a dramatis personae— a list of all of my characters and who they are.  My Legends of Lorata dramatis personae is a very large file; some of my characters are constants across the books, but others are unique to just one of them.

I keep mine as a chart, and list all sorts of information in them; names, hair color, eye color, approximate ages, important roles… sometimes I will even list weapons, magical powers, and special relationships.  My science-fiction’s dramatis personae lists the characters’ homeworlds.

Here I share with you the dramatis personae for “A Modern Legend as it exists right now.  These charts often change and receive new information as a story progresses, and they are a great place for me to refer back to as I write. Do you have one in your writing?  Happy reading!

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a planet where four gods are known: good, evil, elemental and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the land whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently for books planned. The first one is completed and currently being edited. Any news I have on about publishing will be shared as it comes in!
