From Books, Movies, and Television
10.) Going off Dreams: Arden - she is a strength that is needed to bind the troupe
9.) The Sookie Stackhouse Series: Pam - I do not have anything against the actress that portrays Pam from the book to HBO production of True Blood. I really enjoy reading about Pam and her quirks.
8.) Going off Dreams: Lena - was not originally in the story. Lena is short for Lenora, who is the younger sister of Eryn. I chose the name because it is my older sister's middle name.
7.) Harry Potter and the Sourceror's Stone: Hagrid - How can you not love Hagrid, he is a gentle semi-giant. My favorite line of his in the first movie is "I 'ought not 'ave told you 'dat"
6.) The Twilight Series: Alice - who couldn't use an Alice in their life? She is super supportive, she'll shopt for you, and she has visions of the possible future.
5.) The Walking Dead's Darryl Dixon - from the cross bow to his keen tracking skills, he is one man I would love to have by my side during the Zombie Apocolypse
4.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2: Neville Longbottom - we knew reading the series that he would have a bigger role in the plot and finale. I loved how it came together on the big screen.
3.) Going off Dreams: Aella - is a fiesty and flirtatious air diety that I love writing about (I names my puppy A'ella - she's fiesty too!)
2.) Game of Thrones - Direwolves & Dragons - they demand respect and presence, is a strength and they came in a time of need.
1.) Going off Dreams: Tobar - when writing Tobar, I went through various names. In doing research, something just leaped out and even though it is not a name or even something you hear often (if at all), I think it provides a unique characteristic to Nyx's main squeeze.
Secondary characters are important because they help build on the main characters. They can provide more story and depth. When you become invested in the characters, then you become invested as a reader.
