Three facts about Wells:
- Wells and his little brother, Julian, are from the former colony in Spokane, Washington. It was abandoned after a bandit ambush a few years back.
- Wellington’s teleportation style is special in that there’s no visual flair that goes along with it; instead, a few notes can be heard when he teleports. Eric has been jotting down the notes in hopes of figuring out the song for years.
- As a member of the leadership, Wellington has grown accustomed to the Poseideans, particularly the other teleporters. They all miss Rave.
My thoughts on Wellington:
Wellington is quiet, but not reserved. He shares his thoughts and concerns freely with his superiors, and he’s almost always telepathically connected to Gin. Wells sees the psychic and princess as older sisters, and feels a strong need to protect them. Scarlett has always been able to protect herself, so the two were never as close as the royal advisor was to Julian.
He’s very calm, cool-headed, flexible. He isn’t stubborn or impulsive. He carefully weighs his options before he acts, to the point where he occasionally gives orders to Gin. While this is unorthodox for a spirit group–especially a court–the two are best friends and on equal footing, so to have one give the other orders is seen less as disrespectful and more like friendly suggestions. When he isn’t with the court, he’s out scouting for a large, empty home for them to move into. The ranch has only grown more crowded over the years.
I can’t wait to see the kind of reception Wells gets from readers. He’s by no means a controversial character–more often than not, his voice is the voice of reason. He does come off as pessimistic, but that’s only because he’s a realist surrounded by dreamers.
For those of you who don’t know, Wellington is a supporting character in my trilogy Saturn Rising, which is the first installment of The Chronicles of Life & Death. The first book, Aquarius, is available now on Amazon as an e-book and paperback. You can even read it all for free with Kindle Unlimited! Learn more here.
