Beautiful People - Damien Nientr

Hi, folks!  I hope that you had a wonderful Independence Day weekend.  I personally had a lovely time in Charleston, or Chaston, as my southern friend calls it.

Today I am linking up with The Notebook Sisters for their Beautiful People post.  Yay! *throws leftover firecrackers*

And the beautiful person about which I will be speaking (Don't you just love that sentence structure?) is Damien Nientr.  The prince is from Sevyim and is one of my MCs older brothers.  He's also one of my favorite characters so far.

Prince Damien Nientr

1. What's their favorite food? (Bonus: favorite flavor of chocolate!)
Damien likes fish, partly because his mother believes it is unhealthful.  He is also partial to muffins for breakfast.  He likes his chocolate dark and with raspberries.  Simply lovely!

2. What do they absolutely hate?
Damien hates bullies with a passion, perhaps because he and Owen have suffered under the bullying of Wallace for so long.  Damien does not take his hatred out on his older brother, but he does not stand for any bullying from anyone else.

3.  What do they enjoy learning about?
Teeheehee!  Damien happens to be the most scholarly of the three brothers.  He loves learning just about anything.  His favorite academic subject to study was geography, because he has always longed to travel.

4.  Who is the most influential person in their life?
Damien would probably say that his mother has been the greatest influence in his life.  He has a difficult time understanding his father, because even though the king loves his sons, he is so busy running Sevyim that he has little time to spend with his family.

5.  What is their childhood fear?
Damien is afraid of being alone.  He likes being around others, and he really dislikes being in a group where he is unknown.  That, to him, is the worst kind of loneliness.

6.  What is something they have always dreamed of doing, but secretly thought impossible.
Damien has always wanted to be king.  He knows he could be a good king, but because he is the second son he has never had much hope for the throne.

7.  What is something he is impractically afraid of?
My, the questions this month are dark!  Damien is impractically afraid of being struck by lightning, due to a story of the queen's.

8.  Are they a night owl or a morning person?
Damien is one of those odd morning people who actually enjoy rising early and accomplishing things before breakfast.  He usually nods off sometime around 9:30 every evening.  Disgusting.

9.  Do they say everything that pops into their head, or do they leave a lot unsaid?
Hmmmmmmmmm.  That depends on the situation.  Damien has trouble keeping his thoughts in, and his mouth houses a sarcastic tongue.  He can keep his thoughts to himself in a truly serious situation, though.

10.  What are their nervous habits?
That's a difficult question, because Damien does not strike me as a person who gets very nervous.  Of course, after this probing questionnaire, Damien seems like a wimp who's scared of everything, but he's really a brave person in real life.  It's hard to imagine him being very nervous in any situation.  He does have the habit of tipping his bowl to get the last bit of soup, which always annoys the queen.

Thank you for reading, and God bless,


  1. Hi Kathryn! Coming in from the linkup :)

    *throws leftover firecrackers* Ha! I love that.

    I do not think Damien seems like a wimp! He sounds awesome, in fact.

    It's amazing how many words a picture really is worth. Even with everyone's stories, where the pictures being used are originally someone else, they still tell so much about the character. I love when a blogger includes a picture, and then as I'm reading the post I'm nodding my head going, Yes, yes, that seems just like him.

    Anyhow, I like Damien very much. Which story is he from? Duscrelaux, perhaps? Or isn't it listed there?


    1. Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that Damien is from my WIP, The Cat of Lake Gellara.

      I'm glad you like Damien. I like him a lot as well.

  2. Damien sounds like a great character! He seems like a fun mixture of playfulness and seriousness. I enjoyed getting to meet him. :)


Thanks for your comments! I love comments! Thrive on them, actually! Please just remember to keep them clean. I don't care if you make them long. The longer, the better, in fact! I really appreciate it when you take the time to tell me what you think.
