Perverse Selection – Character Profile #2

Currently Listening To: Dammit, by Blink-182

This week, let’s say hi to my female main character of Perverse Selection:

The rising star named Kait Drummond.

Kait is what every employer wants – she’s punctual and gets all her work done. Need those reports by the close of business? Kait will do it! Need her to be in for the early morning conference call? She will be there!

However, she’s employed right now. She’s a political aide and a darn good looking one.

Kait’s deductive skills are also up there on her list of qualifications. She will find patterns and observations looked over by her coworkers. Finding solutions to problems is second nature to her.  She can also figure out most people’s true motives by observation and what they say to her.

Her father was a chief scientist and her mother was a lawyer. She got her ability to find solutions from her mother and her deductive skills from her father.

However some of the people closest to her describe Kait as someone who is sometimes too cautious. She tends to be soft-spoken at the fear of overstepping her duties as a political aide. She also wants everyone’s perception of her to be perfect. As a result, she becomes over-obsessive with her image. That’s not to say she doesn’t have thoughts of bending the rules, but she prefers to play by the rules.

She also panics when things don’t go according to schedule. If she happens to take  longer than usual going out for her morning run, she’ll panic and rush to shower, eat etc. Traffic is her nightmare, so she gets to work early.

Change can be scary for someone as methodical as Kait. But with time. she’ll get use to it.

Overall, Kait is a good person at heart. She’s loyal and has great work ethics. However she worries too much about what others think of her. In fact, sometimes Kait just needs to take a chill pill!

(Oh, and she’s taken guys. Sorry!)

Perverse Selection – Character Profile #1

Currently Listening To: Superbeast, by Rob Zombie

This week, let’s meet one of the main characters in Perverse Selection:

The assassin who goes by the name Sidewinder.

Sidewinder is what many would call a punk. He hates following rules and prefers to do things his way. You say jump, he will fly.

He’s physically gifted, thanks to a special serum injected into him during puberty. The formula contains traces of DNA from predator organisms. As a result he is stronger, faster and more durable than your average person. Sidewinder also was  blessed with the ability to produce fire on his hands and feet, thanks to DNA from the flaming sidewinder – a snake that hosts special bacteria on its tail that converts chemicals to produce a fire capable of scaring off most enemies.

Sidewinder also has more raw intelligence than your average person. Science and engineering are second nature to him. It’s believed he was born with all that brainpower, but most of his past is unknown, even to him.

Unfortunately, his fighting ability combined with his smarts fuels his ego. He believes he is the next generation of fighters and looks down at his fellow assassins. In turn, no one really likes him either. They put up with him only because they have to.

Also, the serum affects his hormone production. He is prone to uncontrolled anger and probably thinks about sex every three seconds (as opposed to the myth that the average man thinks about sex every seven seconds).

Despite all these negative traits, Sidewinder has some things going for him. Besides his intelligence, he’s very ambitious and wants to succeed, no matter the odds. Don’t expect him to sit on the sidelines out of cowardice or laziness. The phrase “high risk, high reward” suits him very well.
