Sometimes when authors create a character, the character is based on a mash-up of features and attributes they admire in many people or desire in themselves. Chloe in Web of Deception is such a character.
Chloe has beautiful dark skin with dark hair sensibly braided and clothes she’s managed to make out of skins. Her leather clothes are because she denies using the linen tunics common to the slaves in the household where she’s been captive for many years. Chloe is determined (some say stubborn). Keeping her traditional dress reminds her that she will not remain a captive. She keeps memories of her homeland even though she was very young when she was captured. Chloe is bold but quiet. She is calculating and analytical. She prides herself on not being emotional; her captive life has taught her emotions are only a weapon others can use against her.
Chloe’s deer-like appearance hails from her birth land. She blends into the forests and jungles like a ghost. Her boldness and shrewd logic are qualities I wanted in myself. Her passionate fire and unstoppable determination were qualities I observed in my sisters. Her bane is a streak of passion that can ice to frigid darkness – this is the evil twist of her positive qualities.
Creating Chloe was a challenge and manipulating her character believably was complicated. This is what makes her character fit perfectly into the dynamic of Web of Deception’s storyline.
Chloe has lived waiting for a specific person to enter her village. She has one close friend, Vi’liam, a military trainee with no family, who listens to her and sees her as a little sister to be protected.
She feels the presence of this person when a captive is taken by the military commander and she determines to release and follow him. This captive is Jordan.
