And in some of the dialogue - I saw docorion.
It is terribly freaky when that happens! *laugh* I mean, there are people who I see bits of Shayara of when I meet them who inspire new characters. volta being a prime example. (The character's name is Victor. Watch for him. You'll like him.) But it's always weird to find that in an existing character.
There are those who do not like Kieran because of his air of entitlement. Two things about that:
1. Julia beats that out of him.
2. It's other parts of Kier that remind me of docorion.
He's absolutely nothing like Kier in general. It's just snippets of dialogue between him and Capri and him and Julia that make me blink and go "um..." He's got that exact tone of voice...
EDIT: And dammit, I know I posted the conversation that reminds me most of him (between him and Julia), but I don't seem to have memoried it! I'll have to post when I get home.
