Introducing Sir Talon Quereste

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We're happy to have you here today.
Name: Sir Talon Querest
Age:  Twenty six
Gender:  Male
Birthplace:  Hawksedge Keep, on the coast of Northumbria near the Scottish border
Profession:  Royal Herald
Ethnicity/Species (if not human):
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars. I have, according to most women, guinea gold hair and pansy purple eyes. (Snickers) As if any knight would admit to something so effeminate as eyes the color of pansies. My chin is square and my mouth firm-lipped. I’m proud that there’s nothing weak about me, physically or otherwise. I consider myself taller than the average man. Some say I’m too tall. I work hard, so my shoulders are broad, my hips lean, and my legs strong enough to sit a horse from sun up to well past sundown. I’m outside a great deal of the time, so I’m definitely not fair skinned. Is there anything else you’d like to know.
Who is the significant other in your life?
No one until I met Lady Larkin Rosham. She’s overly adventurous, impulsive, argumentative and not at all the sort of woman I imagined I would love.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a complicated man. My origins are not as straightforward as I always believed them to be, but Larkin helped me accept the truth. I get great satisfaction from solving puzzles, as most heralds do, Our service to the king requires that we be able to easily discern truth from lie and make decisions that may affect noble families and the kingdom for years, perhaps centuries, to come.
If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?
Smoke, definitely smoke. My voice is deep as a man’s ought to be. However, I often spend weeks in the saddle alone so I’ve developed a very soft rasp.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly? 
My service to the king allows me to indulge in pleasures and comforts whenever I have time. Sadly that is not as often as I would like. I have hopes that the king will reward me with a significant holding for the singular service I provided him recently
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
That I might not be as good and honorable as I believe myself to be. My father unjustly repudiated me when I was six just after my mother died. Despite the fact that I have little respect or liking for the man, his rejection has always been the source of self-doubt. I have learned to thank him, because his repudiation spurred me to excel. I might not be quite the same man I am today had it not been for his unjust actions.
What is your breaking point?
Larkin nearly died once. I bargained with God for her life and caused us no end of trouble as a result.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You should have made Larkin more cooperative, less stubborn, and less impulsive. Honestly what were you thinking to have her as the love of my life?

  1. Nicole,thank you very much for having Talon as your guest. He's an intriguing man and his story has been pushing at me to be written. I think Lady Larkin is more than a match for him, despite his initial belief that she couldn't be more wrong for him. I look forward to knowing what your readers think.

  2. He sounds wonderful. Bargaining with God never works the way we think it will, does it? :)

  3. Isn't that the truth, Kayelle. Talon was a lot of fun to write. He kept drawing false conclusion about Larkin only to have those conclusions blow up in his face.
