I decided my A-Z challenge would be themed for my characters. I have a lot of A characters, but on this one, I have to go with someone from Cutlass because otherwise, I might give too much away. I wish I could introduce everyone to the new characters in Flintlock, but that'll just have to wait!
So, the character of the day is Alex McCloud!
I think Donald Sutherland would be close to what Alex looks like..with a few exceptions.
By the time my main character, Barren, meets Alex, he's in his 60's, but he's still sailing. He began as a member of Jess' crew (Barren's father). His face is pretty scarred, he's even missing an eye. Alex is very wise, and, along with Devan, helps Barren connect a lot of the holes in his past. He introduces Barren and Cove which becomes an invaluable friendship. He is married to Mary McCloud and they have no children, but really take to John Reed, Barren's nephew.
I like to think of Alex as a grandfather figure...
One who really likes guns. lol.
