Three facts about Gin:
- One of Gin’s abilities is polygraphy. She’s a walking lie detector.
- She has no siblings and Alice just has a younger brother, so both were close growing up. They act more like sisters than cousins.
- Despite her shyness, she managed to become fast friends with Wellington shortly after his recruitment. The two share just about everything.
My thoughts on Gin:
Fun fact: Gin and Alice’s close relationship is based on my sibling-like relationship with my cousin. (Shout-out to @theilldoctor on Twitter). The characters aren’t really like us at all, but their closeness reminds me of us growing up.
If I were to describe Alice’s style as 2000s goth, then Gin’s would be emo-punk. It’s almost as if their fashion choices reflect their wishes; Alice wishes she that she didn’t care or worry as much, while Gin wishes she were more rebellious. We’ll watch both Valentine girls mature in Taurus, as the book focuses on their court.
Gin is kind, innocent but not naïve, and loyal to the cause. Wellington is her bestest of best friends–the two are almost always mentally linked. Wells is a bit protective over Gin, despite her being the elder teen when they both met. He taught her how to handle firearms, and she taught him how to silence his mental presence around the Poseidean psychics during their seasonal meets. Even with those precautions, Gin feels strangely at home during those meets, and in Taurus we’ll find that she has become close with two particular demons.
Within the court, you could say that Gin’s a bit smothered. Aria, Kaylee, Noah, Isaac, and Adam handle the psychic with kid gloves, while Alice, Wells, and Scarlett don’t bother babying her around. This makes for a variety of cute moments and some bickering between members, particularly Alice and whoever is babying her cousin. However, Gin is stronger than she appears, as we’ll see in Taurus and Pisces.
Oh, and Gin has a crush on Chloe and Chloe likes her back… As far as we can tell.
For those of you who don’t know, Gin 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.
