Hi again all :)
I have had some great feedback to previous posts on here so I thought I'd throw this question out there too.
For anyone who has ready my work so far, Children of Dawn, you will know that there are a collection of 8 characters which make up the Paladin, or the Original Gods. However I am really worried about the names I have chosen for them. So far, these are my ideas -
Wrath - Main character, he is known as the Third Original as that is where he ranks in strength. He is a very selfless king, always thankful for what he has but also terrified of losing all of it. Please note that this is not his true name. I have an idea for it but I can promise it will not change and I am keeping it a closely guarded secret, for spoiler reasons. Not even the other characters know his true name. He wears the name Wrath as a title to remind him of what he sacrificed to gain what he has.
Deitus - King of the Gods. Says it all really, he is a very proud and wise individual but has also allowed power to consume him somewhat.
Tristen - He is the 'Huntsman' of the Gods, with his weapon of choice being a Bow. A very powerful but also confrontational character.
Lilith - The female demonic sibling, typical demon I guess. Very attractive but also cunning and wildly blood thirsty.
Saederol - This Original is for simple terms, the Devil. The overruling force of Hell who kills for the sport of it.
Farrah - She is the only God who wears a concealed form. Normally, she takes on the form of a fun loving, innocent Child, who appears very wise for her age. She adores her subjects but is loyal to the commands of the God King.
Reaper - I am sure I don't need to explain this one. Similar to Wrath, Reaper is not his name, but a title that he wears. Planning on having him say something like "True death has no name." Just to reinforce that his name will never be known. Reaper has a very close relationship to Wrath, as they were brothers-in-arms directly during the Dawn War.
Hermes - This is the one I am most unsure about. I'd say that this is the God who resents others who are stronger than him. He would rather use his cunning than strength in battle. His intentions are his own and he is only loyal on the surface.
The list above also gives a hint into the characters themselves but this will naturally expand over time. If you have ideas which could bulk out the realism of the characters, please let me know. But mainly please let me know what you think of the names.
Thanks everyone! :D
