VI. The Lovers: Which of your characters follow their heart? Is it for the right reasons?
I think the most obvious of all my characters is Aphrodite. Goddess of love, of course she follows her heart. I think working with Loki has started to make her a little more calculating by book 3 of the serial, but she’s still someone who goes with her heart and with her gut.
Aside from her, Claude Grimm, the second half of my romantic pair in The Fool (2015), The King (2016), and The Queen (2017). He sets his sights on Delia Roberts, and the guy follows through time and time again. His heart knows what it wants, even if his lady is wrapped up in her head. Claude absolutely feels and empathizes, perhaps a little too much. He’s my adorable, feelsy bby. A total Hufflepuff.
Both of them follow their hearts, and for Aphrodite it works. You know, being a goddess kind of means things work out for you in the end. Claude, on the other hand, is a lover and not a fighter, and given the vamptastic world he lives in, that isn’t always a good thing.
