Into the Dark Series Character Profiles

April 14, 2015

The Shadow Prince releases in paperback April 14th, and The Eternity Key releases in hardcover April 28th. Today I have character profiles to share to help celebrate!


Name: Haden Lord (a.k.a. Lord Haden, Prince of the Underrealm)

Hair color: Dark brown hair in daylight. Appears midnight black in the dark.

Eyes: Jade green with amber fire rings around his pupils. Sometimes, especially when vexed or otherwise emotional, it looks like he has actual flames dancing in his eyes.

Height: About 6’4″

Build: Big and muscular like a Spartan warrior.

Favorite food: Braised hydra in plum sauce and steamed griffin’s milk…or pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

Favorite drink: Pomegranate nectar–definitely not soda like Daphne, it burns!

Special skills: Tracking, hunting, sword fighting, hand-to-hand combat, languages, stealth—to the point of being almost invisible in the dark, playing the guitar and singing (he just doesn’t know it yet!)

Weaknesses: Impulsive, sometimes selfish, occasionally compassionate of the less fortunate, sentimental about his deceased mother, too human.

Life Goal: To have his honor restored and to reclaim his standing as heir to the throne of the Underrealm (or so he thinks).

Character inspirations: Prince Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Sam Winchester from Supernatural, Castiel from Supernatural, Thor and a little bit of Loki.



Name: Daphne Raines (a.k.a. The Cypher)

Hair color: Golden blonde

Eye color: Blue

Height: Just little over 6 feet

Favorite food: BBQ bacon cheeseburger with avocado and a single onion ring.

Favorite drink: Rootbeer!

Special skills: Singing, guitar, floral design, animal charming, can hear special tones and music put off by all living/organic things. Uses these tones and sounds to read people and situations. (May be able to do even more with this ability—like control the elements)

Weaknesses: Abandonment issues from being raised without her father, has difficulty letting people in, overly focused on her goals, can’t drive.

Life goal: Become a world famous musician on her own merit—not because her father is a the Joe Vince “the God of Rock.”
