Pictographic Speech

I remember when I first conceived of Mandrake. Small, goth-punk faerie who spoke in pictures. That was the entirety of her character. She was originally supposed to be something of a support character - there to help the plot move along and serve drinks in the background.

How little I knew. It became obvious, the minute I put her on the page, how essential she was to the story and how amazing she was as a character. Readers responded to her and I responded to her as well. I knew we'd see much more of her.

Mandrake hasn't gotten the screen time given to Chrys and Theresa but I feel like, along with William, she's the strongest of the secondary characters. If this were a television show, she'd have title credits, absolutely.

What do you think of Mandrake?

See you Monday!
