The A to Z Challenge is underway this year, thanks to the awesome hosts and minions. Special thanks to Arlee Bird for starting this amazing blogging challenge!!! For more information about this challenge, go to the website!
Primary theme: World of Aramatir (Setting for The Champion Trilogy) Glossary
Secondary Theme: World-Building Questions and Thoughts
Icewynne Mountains – A mountain range that runs down the center of the continent, separating Wylandria and Aerland from old Carpthia
Ioway – one of the governors of Septily
Isobel – a noble pranked by Clara and Salene in their training days
Ivailo (wolf) – Commander of the 10th Wing of Aerland, gray brown hair, beard
World Building Question: Are interesting names distracting - especially if they have a meaning attached to them?
Ivailo is a name I found through a name search engine. I really liked it, and when I discovered that it meant wolf, I instantly had a better picture for this character. However, he's a minor character and although he interacts with a few of the secondary characters in book 2, I wonder if he's too distracting. I mean, I have a backstory for this guy . . . and he doesn't really need a backstory (so, of course, I don't mention it much in the book).
