Meet the Characters
A seventeen-year-old from Glenhill, Iowa, Maggie has long black curly hair almost to her waist, and vivid blue eyes. Her lips are described as being full, and peachy; her cheeks are slightly freckled. She is considered to be very beautiful.
From her head to her toes, every inch of Teedee contained something strange to see. The straw hat on her head was gigantic, lime green and floppy and concealed any evidence of hair that might have been there. A necklace of fat jade and cobalt blue beetles seemed to be crawling around her neck, making it seem extraordinarily small. Beneath the creepy beetle choker, a bright rain slicker-type smock, with huge flowers printed all over it and easily four sizes too big, gave Teedee’s petite body the appearance of a flowery pyramid with neon pink legs. Huge silver and turquoise rings spanned the spaces between her knobby knuckles on every finger, a rainbow of jeweled bangles covered her arms almost to her elbows, and her ankles were dwarfed by the black and white zebra print galoshes she wore on her feet.Scenes that best describe the following characters:
a hunched over little woman who was shocking at close range. Behind thick lenses — that were framed in shiny black plastic and spanned the entire width of her face — Teedee’s hugely magnified steely blue eyes blinked. Her hot pink lipstick looked like it had been applied in a moving vehicle by a blind person.
(Scene from Lor Mandela Book #1: Destruction From Twins)
The man yelled as he ran toward her, his black cloak billowing largely behind him. “Are you all right?” He held out a gloved arm and helped her to her feet. “I’ve never seen anyone escape a rynolt like that! Amazing!” he repeated.
What she saw next almost knocked her back to the ground. She lifted her head and found herself face to face with arguably the most beautiful man she’d ever set eyes on.
“Whoa,” she breathed, and stumbled clumsily.
He was an absolute Adonis—at least six-foot-four, muscular and strong. Dark, wavy hair hung down and rested on his broad shoulders, framing his square, chiseled jaw. As if all of this wasn’t enough, his eyes were completely intoxicating. Maggie couldn’t tell for sure what color they were—only that they were dark—but little flecks of bright red sparkled and flashed across them in the starlight.
As the stranger looked at Maggie, a breathtaking, knee-shaking, glistening white smile grew across his handsome face. He bowed and then lowered down on one knee.
(Scene from Lor Mandela Book #2: Four Hundred Days)
A tall young woman with peachy brown skin and very long pure white hair. She flipped and spun the swords around as she ran from one side of the clearing to the other, whooping and wailing as she went.
“She’s part dweller,” Glaron breathed as he observed her disappearing and reappearing whenever she would run through the shadows cast by the trees.
“Keeeeyaaahhhhaaa!” she screamed again as she planted one of the swords into the ground and used the hilt to launch herself skyward. She rolled in the air two or three times, landed, and yanked the sword from the ground, and then faded into a twining shadow. When she reappeared she was panting heavily and glistening with perspiration.
Glaron watched as she set the swords reverently onto the ground and then wiped a stray bead of sweat from alongside one of her pale yellow eyes. He couldn’t help but gawk a little. After all, here was this beautiful, physically perfect, scantily-clad, mysterious warrior who had just performed one of the most amazing battle sequences he’d ever witnessed. He leaned out a little further to get a better look, shifting his weight onto one foot, and causing a tiny twig beneath his boot to snap.
In one fluid motion, Mikil picked up the swords and vanished. Before Glaron could even react, she was behind him holding a very sharp, jagged blade at his throat.
“Awwww,” she moaned as she realized that she was about to slit the throat of the vritesse’s chief advisor. “What are you doeeng heah?”
