It’s time to share more of my new character aesthetics! I’m going to share the first two now as I’ve previously shared them on social media. This next group focuses on the two children of Princess Kélinae and King William IV as well as their closest friends. I’ve also added these to the section on the website for The Elements of Ilysia series.
Biological son of Princess Kélinae and King William IV, Adopted son of James and Katie Moore
Zak Moore was adopted, along with his newborn sister, when he was 17 months old by James and Katie Moore. He and his sister were taken to their adopted parents by John Daesyn, who did not reveal the identity of their biological parents or that he is their maternal grandfather. Born in Ilysia as Rovén, son of William and Kélinae, but raised in the very different world of Corinthia. His mother had taken him and his younger sister from Ilysia to protect them from the Empress. Zak is suspicious of the truth about being adopted and his sister being the one who truly needs protecting. He is someone who loves to laugh and is fiercely protective of his sister Addí. He is also a gifted swordsman whose power lies in the element of water. Zak is said to look very much like his biological father, William, did at 18, even having the exact same dark blue eyes.
Biological daughter of Princess Kélinae and King William IV, Adopted daughter of James and Katie Moore
Addí Moore was adopted as a newborn, long with her older brother Zak. She had been born in Ilysia as Sínead, the daughter of William and Kélinae. The Oracles at the White Fae Court visited her mother shortly after her birth to say that this newborn girl was the prophesied one they had been waiting on. Desperate to protect her children, her mother took her from Ilysia to the world of Corinthia to keep her safe from the Empress. John Daesyn, her maternal grandfather, is who took Addí and Zak to James and Katie Moore, an Ilysian couple in Corinthia who adopted the children and raised them as their own. Addí has just recently turned 17 and has no idea about her destiny, adoption, or biological parents. She’s a kind hearted and loving young lady who does not believe she’s anything special. She’s also said to be the very image of her biological mother, Kélinae.
Only son of Robert and Adelaide Adamsson, co-leaders of the Ilysian Resistance Forces in Corinthia
RJ Adamsson is the eldest child and only son of Robert and Adelaide Adamsson. RJ was born In Berdenheim, Gemaronica, Corinthia and spent the majority of his first 18 years there. His parents are close friends with James and Katie Moore and also help to lead the Ilysian Resistance Forces. He grew up with Zak Moore as his best friend and fell in love with Zak’s sister Addí as they grew up. It’s because of Zak that he finally shared his feelings with her and their relationship became more than friendship. He is a fiercely protective friend and brother with a big heart. RJ is a very gifted archer and has been working hard to master his powers with the element of air. He believes strongly in the cause of the resistance and wants to see his true homeland free of the Empress so he and Addí can spend the rest of their lives in Ilysia together.
Addí and RJ
Their love from Addí’s perspective
She grew up with RJ as one of her closest friends and love grew between them. Addí had always been too afraid to confess her love to RJ despite her adoptive mother and brother both trying to push her to admit it. Growing up knowing of her Ilysian heritage it did not surprise her when she began to see memories of a past life she had lived with him. After RJ came and declared his feelings to her, she finally admitted her own to him then shared what memories she had of their former life together. It was clear they had a strong bond of love from the start, one that will keep them closer than ever through triumph and tragedy. Their souls fit together at one, a bond that will hold them together for eternity.
RJ and Addí
Their love from RJ’s perspective
RJ has never intended on falling in love with Addí. They grew up together and had always been close though his best friend had always been her brother Zak. It’s Zak that finally gets RJ to go to Addí and admit his feelings. When she returns them, it is the happiest moment of his life at that point. She even shares the memories she has seen of their previous life together and he goes that this one won’t end in tragedy as that one did. Their bond is more than love from the heart. They are connected at the soul. He would truly do anything for her and is her rock through the good and the bad.
Eldest daughter of Robert and Adelaide Adamsson, co-leaders of the Ilysian Resistance Forces in Corinthia
Guinevére Adamsson is the eldest daughter and second child of Robert and Adelaide Adamsson. She has recently turned 16 and begun to train for war. Her earlier training had only been in mastering her powers and self defense. Now she’s being turned into a soldier like her older brother and their closest friends. She’s reluctant at first but things will change for her. Guinevére is fierce, strong, and passionate. She has already shown promise with not only a sword but as an archer. Her powers are centered around the element of fire and she can be just as fiery as the element she controls. She’s highly intelligent and still learning to transition into what she’s meant to be. There’s a lot she’s still unsure of but she’s very dependent on her older brother, RJ, for guidance even though she doesn’t want to admit that to him.
I’m still making more of these aesthetics about the characters in the first two books of the series. There’s still much more to come and learn about the worlds of Ilysia and Corinthia. Stay tuned!
The first book in this series is where you can meet and learn about these two lovers, separated but still deeply in love. A Darkness Awakens (Elements of Ilysia: Volume One) is available on Amazon in Paperback and for Kindle. It’s also on Kindle Unlimited!
