I’m thrilled to be here at Vampire Book Club today, and to have the chance to tell readers about Sins of the Angels (get a copy at Book Depository or Amazon). I thought I would take the opportunity to give everyone a chance to get to know one of my characters a little bit, but rather than introduce you to the standard hero/heroine, I decided it would be fun to profile the bad guy for a change. So here’s a partial character sketch of Caim, Fallen Angel, serial-killer, and all-round stuff of nightmares:
Age: 10 million years, give or take
Height: 6 feet
Weight: 200 lbs in full-flesh form; significantly less in demon form
Hair Color: Dark
Eye Color: Gray, changing to black in demon form
Build: Muscular in full-flesh form; withered in demon form
Occupation: Formerly a Power of the Sixth Choir, now a Fallen Angel
Pastimes: None. Entirely focused on finding the one mortal soul he needs to return to Heaven
Family: Parents long since forgotten as insignificant. One sibling, a brother
Significant Other: One who no longer remembers him as her soulmate but whom he has never forgotten.
What he most regrets: Allowing Lucifer’s promises of a better life to lure him away from Heaven and the One’s side
What he most wants: to return to Heaven, if only to be cleansed of the memories of his soulmate
What he most hates: Aramael, the brother who betrayed him and exiled him to Limbo
What he will never do: Return to either Hell or Limbo—Hell, because he has long since given up on Lucifer’s leadership; Limbo, because he cannot survive another moment of the sheer nothingness there.
What he finds most irritating: The human race.
What makes him laugh: He has no ability to feel humor
What he’s most grateful for: His escape from Limbo—and the Heavenly traitor who arranged it.
