THE CHARACTERS

"When this masterwork is a world famous bestseller and Hollywood is begging me for the film rights, these are the sort of actors I would like them to hire. The fantasy film cast will also give you a brief introduction to the main characters in the novel..."

JASON WILLOW

Jason is fifteen, tall, blonde haired, blue eyed and fit from years of his father’s martial arts training. He comes across as quiet but has a sharp sense of humour with people he is comfortable with. As he has been forced to start a completely new life four times already, Jason is wary about making friends and feels he is useless with ‘girls’. He has a good relationship with his sister (sometimes) and his father apart from one thing – his father’s refusal to reveal his past and the reason they have been running from ruthless killers all their lives.

MIRANDA WILLOW

RICHARD WILLOW

Jason Willow’s father is a calm, softly spoken man with a slow smile that lights up his face when it finally appears. Very few people see the layer of steel just below the surface until it is too late. Richard has been teaching Jason and Miranda a powerful martial arts system since they could walk, though to look at him, nobody would guess the extent of his abilities. Twenty years ago he left a life that he will not talk about but that life refuses to let him go. He has been on the run with his family as long as Jason can remember
