E is for Eirwyn Steals the Show

 

This year's A to Z Challenge theme is: All About Foxwick.

E is for ... Eirwyn Steals the Show

Foxwick’s enemy is often the kingdom of Wintermill. For over fifty years, Wintermill had one queen: Eirwyn. A sorceress in her own right, she yearns to make Foxwick her own.

Through magic, Eirwyn’s hair has turned from blond to blue. She’s used magic to keep herself looking young, and she’s been queen since she was sixteen.

I first created Queen Eirwyn in the story “Dragon Seer.” She has appeared in that story, “Lady Bard,” “Magic Seeker,” “Eirwyn’s Evil,” and “Wayward Wintermill.” She will also appear in “Dragon Spy” from the forthcoming Men of Foxwick and the forthcoming novella with her as the main character titled The Loveless Princess.

Although she’s from Wintermill and considered the villain, she has captured my imagination. There is so much more to Eirwyn than meets the eye.

Eirwyn sounds like a deep and intriguing character with layers.

Sounds like she's been queen just a little too long.

She kind of sounds like an evil version of the Childlike Empress.

I love it when villain's have intriguing back stories! It's interesting to find out what makes them tick.

Very often, villains can be more interesting than mc's. Yours sounds deep, quirky and intriguing. Love the blue hair! lol

Eirwyn sounds like somebody I wouldn't want to mess with. Having said that, I wouldn't mind a bit of her youthful magic!

Ah, a vain queen; interesting character, no doubt. Hope to see you at MROP soon - today I'm talking about Fantasy. -Belinda.
