Mutterings and utterings of a budding novelist

Seraphim

As my sis has pointed out, I cannot mention Angel without writing something about Angel’s creation – the child-like Seraphim. Described as being built from several suits of armour with six arms and no speech abilities, Seraphim is able to wield six swords at once (4 swords and 2 guns in Tapestry of Fates), and comes complete with a huge sense of justice and devotion to his friends.

As an assault droid, Angel programmed Seraphim to act in an ultra violent, rampaging mania if her life is threatened or if she comes to harm. He is also programmed to obey all of her commands, disguised as kind requests.

His violent side is mirrored in his benevolent nature and innocence, as is shown in Book 2 of Tapestry of Fates (Spirit’s Pain) when he introduced.

   When he got to Gemma, she looked up at him through red ringed eyes; tears streaming down her face.

   Did you kill him?’ She whispered to the tall droid as he freed her from the shackles.

   Seraphim paused and then slowly placed a finger under Gemma’s eye, carefully wiping her tear away. His eyes shone a deep blue. Softly bleeping he nodded at her.

   ‘Thank you.’ She quietly choked, embracing Seraphim tightly, who in return held her back.

 

Here is an excerpt from my other tale ‘The Lost Flame’ that perfectly describes the nature of Seraphim.

Please excuse the very poor grammer – it is over ten years old.
