Character of the Week: Aidan!
This week's Character of the Week is the fascinating and talented Aidan! Welcome Aidan. Please tell us about yourself!
I never wanted to be a Seer and work on Sentinel's Guiding Council. I don't know that I was really cut out to be a leader. And it's kind of a pain knowing what other people are thinking all the time--noisy, you know? Of course, sometimes it's useful--like if I'm trying to pick up a girl or something. But I don't get to do that anymore. For one, I'm too busy. But also I'm promised to marry the Lord Prince's Daughter. It's an arranged thing, and top secret. I'm not even supposed to know, but I'm not sure how they thought they were going to keep it from me. Cassidy is hot, but she's also like 25 years older than me, so that's weird. I guess in a couple of hundred years it won't matter much. If we live that long. The way the war's going, it's doubtful.
But mostly I hate being a Seer because everybody's always looking at me like I should just KNOW all about how the war will turn out and whether they'll live or die. I'm always the elephant in the room.
Um. What else would you want to know? Probably about the war, huh? The demon Maliquium, who's one of our ancestors, dragged Kae and me into it by killing our parents. He used to be in charge of the all the demons here on earth, but apparently a whole bunch of us got pissed a few hundred years ago and rebelled. So now we're Sentinel, trying to defeat him, though killing him is going to be a bugger, like my cousin Jason would say. There's not that much of our family left, but he's always targeting us Trevets.
Kaelin's my twin brother (I'm older by a few minutes which is why I inherited Sight from my dad--lucky me). He's the top marksman in Sentinel. You can tell us apart. If he smiles, he has a dimple. My cousins are Jason and Marc. They're sworn to me--kind of this weird ritualistic guardianship where they apparently die if I do. They did it when I was a baby, so I didn't have any choice in that. I also have an older half-sister Lucy. She's probably the coolest person I know, except for Kae. Oh, and my Uncle Julian, who would kick my ass three ways from Sunday if he knew I was online doing this. But you guys are the only fun I get to have.
Question: If I know whether someone's going to live or die, should I tell them if they ask? Or should I play dumb? Keep in mind that Kaelin says I suck at lying.
