Cast of Characters
Building this aspect of the codex is the single-largest request and the biggest challenge. This story is driven by the characters, by their perceptions, their misunderstandings, their conflicts, and in their trust (or lack thereof) in each other. Their choices alter the dynamics of families, groups, and cities; through the epic, the story and the characters evolve together, as individuals and as one world.
I've found, writing this way, that I always have more to write about them. For as long as they are alive, and sometimes beyond their death, the inkwell of ideas has yet to run dry.
