Hiya everyone. Some of you are a bit confused about the roles and characters In the Gorgon Chronicles. So, I thought i'd help out a little by showing you in basic form who my main characters are and their roles in the book.
Lynna: Main protagonist/Heroine of the story. there book is told from her perspective, her thoughts, feelings and we learn about her past as well as her hopes and dreams. Lynna is a realist. Sure, like all of us she has her hopes and dreams for the future but she is realistic about achieving those dreams. Lynna is sarcastic, determined, passionate, kind and quick minded as well as creative. Lynna is a perfect mix of her parents with the powers from medusa being increased agility, speed and eyesight. Like her mother, lynna can turn things to stone too, but found out this power by accident as it only really comes to her when she is startled greatly, angered or frightened, and from Poseidon it's the power over water, sea creatures to some extent (she can understand some sea creatures but not all as well as speak to some too like the dolphins or sharks). she can also cause earthquakes when angered. Lynna also seems to have her own powers too. Lynna seems to have an uncanny link to the weather to some degree, as shown in a scene where the sea and weather both reacted to her anger towards Ares, thus creating a massive storm that caused her and artemis to fall overboard and away from the group and landing them on a far off island. Lynna has Black snakes instead of hair, bright blue eyes and tan skin dusted with freckles. Lynna is athletic, surefooted and quick witted. She uses anything and everything around her to her advantage. Her best friend is Artemis, goddess of the hunt and wild.
Artemis: the Deuteragonist/Sidekick of Lynna. Artemis is Lynna's best friend and loyal confidant. She is always willing and ready to help a friend r family member in need. Artemis is very optimistic. She is not naive, far from it but instead just likes to believe that everything and everyone has good inside them. Artemis is bubbly, joyful, adventurous and brave. She is loyal above anything else and loves her family, even if they get on her nerves at times. She loves her twin brother Apollo and is constantly looking out for him, as an older sister will, and sees that he stays out of mischief. Artemis's primary weapon her bow and silver tipped arrows. Trust me when I say that you don't want to be on the receiving end of her anger or arrow for that matter. Artemis does have a hot temper though but usually only gets angry when a family member or friend is hurt or insulted or when some guy tries to hit on her. Artemis has waist long wild curly hair, forest green eyes and tanned skin. She prefers the night over the day as this gives her the perfect cover for an ambush during the hunt. Artemis loves a good party and is one to dress to impress.
Poseidon: The father of lynna and a mentor to her as well as being the Tritagonist of the book. Poseidon is a caring father to lynna, even though she is cold and distant towards him at times, afraid of letting her feelings out. Poseidon teaches lynna about her powers and what it means to be a leader. Poseidon is calm (most of the time), sarcastic, levelheaded, brave and strong willed. He has long brown hair and beard, tanned skin, bright blue eyes and is muscular and strong. He often wears a light tunic and walks barefooted, carrying his silver jewel encrusted trident with him and a crown made of gold and shells.
Ares: Mentor to Lynna in Olympus and checks in on her at different points during her quest. Ares is constantly frustrated with Lynna's sarcastic nature and 'inability to follow orders' so he says anyway, as well as her coldness towards him and timidness to push herself at times. He constantly mocks and challenges Lynna, trying to get her to reach her full potential and to try and help her overcome her concern with other's comments. Ares can only be described as rugged. He is grouchy, to the point, hot tempered, passionate and stubborn. Ares is burly, muscular and frightfully strong. He has many scars marring his body from training exercises and battles. With skin bronzed from being out in the sun, long dark hair often pulled back in a ponytail and extremely manly and muscular figure, with a dark and brooding personality to match his exterior it is no surprise why Ares is a heartthrob in Olympus and on earth too.
Athena: Mentor to Lynna, he goddess of wisdom and warfare. Athena is intelligent, sharp tongued, and a no nonsense type of warrior. She helps lynna gain her confidence and strength of mind as well as body. initially, she and lynna understandably didn't really get along at first, what with medusa cursing medusa and playing a part in her death, the two eventually warmed up to each other. Athena wear simple clothing, often a white chiton and her armour or a more elaborate dress for parties or meetings. Athena has honey blonde hair that reaches just past her shoulders, braided at the sides and pulled up in a ponytail. With stormy Grey eyes, lightly tanned flawless skin and thin, yet slightly muscular figure, athena is as intimidating as she is kind and intelligent.
Medusa: The mother of lynna, lover of poseidon and sister to Euryale and Stheno. She was the loveliest of the three sisters an fell in love with poseidon. forgetting her vows of chastity to the goddess athena, whom she served as a priestess, medusa fell pregnant by poseidon and was cursed by athena to become a gorgon. She has a minor role in the story but is the driving force behind the book as Lynna goes on a quest to bring her back. She is seen as kind, generous and thoughtful. she is forgiving and extremely brave, sacrificing herself to save her daughter's life. Medusa as a human has long straight black hair, olive skin and green eyes. As a gorgon she has light green scales, green Viper snakes instead of hair and slitted golden eyes. she is frightening, yet remains as kind and loving towards her family as ever.
Madness: The main antagonist/villain of the book. He is the leader of the Evils that pandora set free. As his name suggests, Madness is the ruler of all things crazy and makes us do all the things we consider to be insane or bonkers. Madness is slick, forceful, crude, rude, egotistical, arrogant, snappy, angered easily and crazy. he can be charming and seductive if it works in his favour but loathes any feelings which are positive. Madness is dark skinned, kind of muscular, red eyed, curly haired and gives off an aura that practically screams darkness and chaos.
