Let’s talk about Gordon Hall, Cici and Nat’s younger brother, Cassie’s soul mate, and Remi’s nephew!

Three facts about Gordon:
- Gordon’s been crushing on Cassidy for as long as he can remember. He asked her out in the weeks prior to Monty’s coronation; she said yes.
- He’s the third member of the court to have superhuman strength–and the strongest. He’s beaten both Sal and Lorenzo at deadlift competitions.
- Since the halfway house’s carnival, Gordon has learned a lot about self-control. He exercises great restraint when handling fragile things, a feat which took Sal years to master.
My thoughts on Gordon:
Even though he’s the youngest of his siblings, he’s the tallest, the physically strongest, the only male, and the only one to find their soul mate. Cienna is disinterested in fighting or romance, so she doesn’t partake in any competitions. Natalie, on the other hand, loves to challenge her little brother to fights. Even with his superior strength, he has yet to beat her speed, agility, and swordsmanship.
He’s a fun-loving guy who enjoys videogames and hanging out with his friends. Ricky made Gordon a pair of brass knuckles since he prefers hand to hand combat over melee weapons. Despite having been together for over a year now (when Aquarius takes place), he and Cassie have yet to be intimate. He’s worried he’ll hurt her with his strength.
Here’s a handy infographic I made to display how strong Gordon is in comparison to other spirits with superhuman strength:
For those of you who don’t know, Gordon 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.
