EelKat Wendy C Allen - Author Interview: Spell Casting Side Effects: Magic In Quaraun's Universe | Fantasy Author Interview


2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  1. Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
  2. [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
  3. Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h
  4. The Avallac'h CosPlay Costume Making Vlogs
  5. How To Make The Avallac'h CosPlay
  6. How Much Did It Cost? Budgeting The Avallac'h CosPlay
  7. Why do children CosPlay rapists & rape victims? & WHY Avallac'h is a M18+ character. 
  8. PortConMaine 2018
  9. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided

UPDATE April 17, 2018: I do not like being harassed online or offline, in any way, shape or form. Sorry, but what just happened this week is intolerable and I've blocked everyone involved and deleted all their posts. I will continue to block any one else who does the same as these people did. If you were one of the 200+ people blocked on my FaceBook account this week, here's a link to tell you why I blocked you: https://www.eelkat.com/cosplying-a-rapist.html

~o0o~ Chapter 2 ~o0o~

A group of Thullid cultists slithered and slunk their way through the rubble. They spoke to one another in hush whispers of their native Demon tongue with its squishy sounding words made up mostly of 'L's, 'i's, and break clattering clicks.

The squid headed cultists in their long orange robes, contrasting with the brilliant purple tentacles, dragged between them another Thullid, dressed in vivid pink robes embroidered with glittering bubblegum pink jelly fish - the distinctive regalia of a Di'Jinn priest, worshiper of The Sacred Pink Jelly Fish.

The orange robed cultists were young, as could be told by their vividly purple hued tentacles, glistening with slick slime. The pink robed priest they dragged with them was exceedingly ancient, his tentacles aged to a dull dusty pink, dry and wrinkled, no longer protected by their slime coat that had long since worn away.

The cultists chattered excitedly about the coming of change and good fortune, but the old priest coward between them in fear. The Cult of the Sacred Pink Jelly Fish had search high and low for the last of Her Ladyship's disciples. Long feared dead, ZooLock the Great had finally been found. 

For centuries ZooLock had stood as the personal bodyguard of a tiny pink jelly fish, kept imprisoned in a glass bowl, where she was worshiped by Demons from all points of the galaxy.

For centuries the tiny pink jelly fish had begged for her freedom, but trapped she was in a tiny glass bowl. 

Then the Humans came, like a plague upon the planet the Humans spread quickly and with them they brought a God of blood, lust and war. A God who murdered his only son, then demanded the Humans eat his flesh and blood every week, over and over again for centuries. An angry God who hated Demons and demanded the Humans slaughter them all.

And so the reign of Demons on Earth fell, as the Humans rose to power. One by one the Demon temples were shattered and the priests murdered.

When only one temple remained, The Temple of the Di'Jinn, the Thullids had gone en masse, to protect their Goddess, but their numbers were too few, and the like so many before them, the Di'Jin priests were slaughtered...

...save one...

ZooLock.

A plain simple priest with only one job: stand beside the Pink Jelly Fish and make sure no one touches her glass bowl. A lonely job he did for centuries.

When the Human Army attacked, ZooLock grabbed the bowl and ran into the desert, never to be seen again. Seen by many as a coward, news soon spread to Demon ears, of the horror of what ZooLock had done...

...Desperate to save Her Ladyship, ZooLock did the unthinkable and implanted the Sacred Pink Jelly Fish inside the body of an Elf. The only Thullid never implanted, now lived inside a host, like the rest.

ZooLock had done what he had sworn to do... protect the Goddess at any cost. And thus he became known as ZooLock the Great, the only Demon brave enough to save Her Ladyship from the onslaught of the Humans and their Demon murdering ways.

But that was nearly 500 years ago, and ZooLock now found himself in chains, dragged a long by members of a new religion. A group calling themselves The Cult of the Sacred Pink Jelly Fish.

The ancient priest had no strength to fight his captors, and was dragged along with chains on his arms and legs, his once purple tentacles, now faded to a dull mauve, hung limp before him.

In case you didn't know, I'm a costume designer with a degree in theatrical dressmaking and fashion design. As such, the costumes you see me making for my CosPlays of the Quaraun series characters are fully designed from the ground up by me. Meaning, not only do I design and make the patterns, but I also design and have custom made fabrics.

Below is the fabric I designed for CosPlaying ZooLock...

ZooLock knew not what the cultists had in mind for him, and his pleco pupiled fish eyes searched desperately for any means of escape.

At last they stopped, standing before the remains of a once large stone church, that was now nothing but broken up bits of wall scattered about. The leader of the cultists, took their prisoner and stood staring up at one particularly dangerous looking stone wall.

"It'll fall over at any minute," ZooLock said in his timid frightened voice.

"You'll be safe here," the squid headed Elder said to his chained and shackled prisoner.

"Safe?" ZooLock squealed as he looked around the vast ruins. "How is this safe? Humans have razed this place. They'll be back..."

"They won't come back. Their army has moved on."

The cult elder took ZooLock's chains and secured them to a stone wall.

"What are you doing?" The frightened Di'Jinn priest asked.

"You are the last of the Di'Jinn. Saved from Her wrath only because you are a coward. When death came for the rest, you had already fled."

"Her Ladyship was protecting the horses. You know how She loves horses. You should not have killed Her horses. You should not have angered Her."

"She likes you."

"She hates me."

"She won't kill you."

"Only because I did not help you kill Her horses."

"She'll be here soon."

"What?" ZooLock looked around franticly, curling his tentacles nervously as he did. "She's here?"

"You'll not have long to wait."

"Wait for what? What is going on?"

"If you live, you will lead Her to us."

"If I live? What do you mean? What is going on?"

"Her Ladyship is pregnant."

"Pregnant? That is not possible. I put her in a male Elf." 

The fabric I designed for the Demon Cultists...

"You must protect the eggs until the time of hatching."

"How do I do that?"

"You'll think of something."

"But She does not like me! I am a Di'Jinn. She killed us all! I am the last Di'Jinn. You are right, I lived because I am a coward. She'll kill me soon as She sees me!"

"She won't kill a wounded animal."

"I am not wonded."

"That is easily fixed."

Before the ancient Demon priest had time to respond the other Demons pushed the stone wall over on top of him.

The squid-headed beasts quickly made their way back to the road, leaving old ZooLock crushed and injured, buried beneath the rubble.


Furry paws and glistening eyes watched from the shadows, keeping notes on everything they saw and heard.



~o0o~

Meanwhile, in a coastal fishing village not far away, there sat a massive lighthouse, built out of smooth black river stones. Vastly bigger on the inside, then it's outward appearance, the tower housed a band of half-Elf thieves, who fancied themselves wizards, though in truth, they were barely mages. This band of magic wielding thieves was lead by an ancient old, one armed half-Elf, whom called himself HellBorne the Evil.

"We've found him!" HellBorne said excitedly as he ran into the room.

The other half-Elves stopped what they were doing to listen to what their leader had to say.

"The Darkness is upon us," the ancient one armed Half-Elf continued. "We must begin preparations. Every thing must be ready before he arrives."

HellBorne spent the next hour explaining in great detail what the Darkness was, why it was imperative they welcome it, and what must be done to prepare for it's arrival.

HellBorne began listing off the items he needed and barking out orders, giving each of the other half-Elves their instructions on what to get.

One by one the half Elves scurried off to carry out their orders. 

All but one. 

HellBorne looked across the room. GhoulSpawn, was once again not following orders. The Sun Elf was sitting in the corner with his nose in a book.

A pair of gleaming green eyes peered through the window, watching the scene unfold. Whiskers twitched as tiny grey paws took notes of what they saw.

"GhoulSpawn!" HellBorne yelled angrily.

"What?" The young Sun Elf jumped from his seat, looking around and wondering which way to run. The poor half Elf was scared of everything and the slightest sound sent his heart racing in terror.

"I need more sheep," HellBorne said. "Go get me more sheep."

"Sheep?" GhoulSpawn had not been paying attention to anything the old half Elf had said to him and only heard this last part, commanding him to get sheep. "Why do you need sheep?"

"The Darkness is upon us!"

"The Darkness?"

"Haven't you been listening to me?"

"Uhm... I... I was reading."

"You and your books."

"I want to learn..."

"You don't learn by reading. You learn by doing."

"I'm not good at doing... uhm... anything," GhoulSpawn admitted.

HellBorne grabbed the book away from GhoulSpawn and threw it across the room.

"I said, go get me more sheep!"

"Sheep?"

"Yes! Sheep!"

"Why?"

"I've a sacrifice to prepare!"

"Sacrifice? With blood?"

"Of course with blood."

"Can't you do a non blood sacrifice?"

"You whimpering pussy! The Darkness is coming and we need blood to bring it closer! Before it gets out of range."

"But I don't like killing things..."

"You don't like killing? What kind of a wizard are you?"

"Not an evil one. My father..."

"You're father was one of the greatest wizards of all time."

"He was evil."

GhoulSpawn was ashamed of the things his father had done.

"How did a snivelling coward like you come from the loins of a great sorcerer like him?"

"My mother was an Elf. I was raised with her people, not his. Elves are mostly peaceful."

"Only to other Elves. What Elf ever treated a half-Elf with respect and dignity?"

"We don't have to kill things to..."

"GhoulSpawn, you are young. You haven't seen enough of the world to know how shitty it treats us half-Elves. You are still innocent to the ways of the world and it's hatred for our kind. But that's going to end soon. The Darkness will be here soon, and with it, our salvation."

"But do we have to kill sheep?"

"The sheep make way for the sacrifices."

"Aren't the sheep the sacrifices?"

"You really weren't listening to anything I said were you?"

"I guess not."

"The ritual takes seven days to complete. We need seven sacrifices, one each night for seven days. The sheep blood is to purify the tools that we will use to kill the sacrifices."

"But..."

"GO!"

GhoulSpawn quickly scurried out of the room. A couple of the other half-Elves chided him, but he didn't stick around long enough to hear what they had said. While living with HellBorne wasn't ideal, at least GhoulSpawn was no longer alone. 

HellBorne was wrong. GhoulSpawn did know far too well, the hatred the world had for half-Elves. He'd grown up with High Elves. And they never let him forget, he wasn't worthy to be alive. From the time he was old enough to walk, his days were spent running from bullies. Constantly beaten and publicly humiliated, the young half-Elf now live in mortal terror of every shadow.

Loneliness was a major issue for the Sun Elf. It was the thing that kept him working for HellBorne. GhoulSpawn had no friends. His family, his people, his village were dead. He had a few wives here and there, but he admittedly didn't love any of them and had a difficult time being faithful to any one.

GhoulSpawn had a wife in nearly every town he'd ever walked through, most of which he never returned to, many of which he'd left to raise alone children he didn't even know he had. A bigger problem for GhoulSpawn was the trail of pregnant prostitutes he left behind every where he went.

While he hated being alone, he also shied away from any sort of commitment. The more commitment a situation required, the faster he ran away from it and thus GhoulSpawn found himself bedding every female he meet within a few hours of meeting her, then disappearing from her life within a week of meeting her.

GhoulSpawn had come across the one armed half-Elf HellBorne a few months ago. HellBorne had opened his home up to other half-Elves and now quite a large number of half-Elves were living with the ancient wizard, doing his bidding in exchange for free room and board and protection from the Elves and Humans who hunted half-Elves. 

The half-Elves living with HellBorne had all been treated poorly by Elves and Humans alike and all of them had grown bitter and vengeful and thus were quick to help HellBorne in his questionable experiments and rituals.

GhoulSpawn had questioned HellBorne many times and each time was meet with the wrong side of HellBorne's frightful temper. But still, GhoulSpawn stayed because he was accepted by the half-Elves here and had not found acceptance among Elves or Humans, was too scatterbrained and flighty to raise a family of his own and could not bear to live alone. 

Escaping to the outdoors to run errands for HellBorne gave GhoulSpawn the breathing room he needed. 

GhoulSpawn soon found himself sitting alone on a rock in a field, watching a herd of sheep, waiting for the lazy Human shepherd to fall asleep and hoping he could find an excuse for coming back without any sheep. His reached into his pocket and pulled out a big red arm chair to sit in.

GhoulSpawn wished he could set up a TV here, but it was the 1400s and electricity had not yet been invented. He tried to remember not to have items from the future that would be questioned by others. This arm chair was definitely out of its time period, but a chair was a chair and he could at least explain it should someone question it. And it was more comfortable than a rock. 

Of course, if anyone did question the chair, their more probable question would have been how the hell did he get it all the way out here in the middle of a field, but GhoulSpawn hadn't thought of that. He could of course tell them the truth, that he was a wizard and was wearing a coat that was lined with dozens of pockets, each pocket bigger on the inside then the outside with plenty of room to carry a few cities worth of houses around with him.

But GhoulSpawn was not a member of the Guild which meant he was practicing magic illegally and should any one ask to see his papers, he had none to give and would be quickly tossed in a dungeon and his coat of many pockets filled with items from the future confiscated and burned.

GhoulSpawn was not known for thinking logically of such things so did not hide the fact that he was a wizard from any one. 

And so, there GhoulSpawn sat in a big red arm chair, in the middle of a field of sheep, his hair and eyes glowing a blinding shade of yellow, wondering if there was a way for him to stay in the future permanently never again having to return back here to his own time, wishing he was in the 1970s watching Saturday morning cartoons, and pulling dozens of books out of the pockets of his dark green velvet coat, trying to decide which book he should read next, in a time period before books were invented. 

Reading took his mind off HellBorne and his father and the shitty way Elves and Humans treated him. 

GhoulSpawn worried that HellBorne would tell the others that his father was a Chaos Demon and not a Human as everyone believed. All of the other half Elves were half Human. 

In addition to being the only half Demon among them, he was also the only one who had High Elf blood. The others were various races of Common, Wild, or Feral Elves, most of them Wood Elves. GhoulSpawn's spaced out day dreamer attitude was attributed to his being the bastard of an aristocratic.

The other half Elves picked on GhoulSpawn because HellBorne coddled him, giving him assignments that were easy and allowing him to sit around doing nothing. Most of the half Elves could neither read nor write, and it being a century before Gutenberg invented the printing press, they did not know what those strange blocks of paper squished between boards were, that GhoulSpawn was constantly carrying around and so did not understand why GhoulSpawn was allowed to sit all day doing nothing but staring at squares of paper.

GhoulSpawn found a book to read and soon the absent minded half-Elf forgot about sheep and was lost in trying to translate an orange spined spell book he'd brought back from the future: Unearthed Arcana by Gary Gygax.

A pair of yellow eyes peered out from the bushes at the edge of the pasture. Whiskers twitched and tail stood tall as small black paws jotted down more notes.

Volume 11: The Summoner of Darkness

Back from the dead, once again with Unicorn in tow, and now with the Thullid priest ZooLock his prisoner shackled in chains, Quaraun is headed back to The Screaming Unicorn Tavern in Old Orchard Beach, but finds himself cursed with endless bad luck, as one thing after another drops out of the sky in his path.

Highwaymen, hellhounds, a turtle as big as a house, fire breathing butterflies, a train station from the 20th century, and a strange glow-in-the-dark demonic wizard with pockets full of sheep, who sits in a red armchair in poppy field in the 1400s reading 1980s spellbooks books by Gary Gaygax.

Quaraun goes head to head against The Gremlin, a time traveling wizard from the future who refuses to allow the Pink Necromancer back into Old Orchard Beach, where since his last visit, an evil Sorcerer named HellBorne has erected a giant cursed lighthouse known as The Black Tower.

ZooLock however has other plans, and while 4 rival wizards tear up the town in a wizard's duel, the Squid Headed Aliens From Neptune's Moon and their armies of JellyFish worshiping cultists arrive in town to preform a ritual that will unleash an Elder Brain Chaos Demon, known as The Sacred Pink JellyFish on the world. Too bad they didn't know she was already in town.

Did You Know?

The Summoner of Darkness is the first time The Gremlin, EelKat, Lyxiana, Bela, and Spriggan (all characters from the original 1978 edition of Friends Are Forever, Volume 1 of The Twighlight Manor Series) make appearances in The Quaraun series.

While most of the Quaraun series is written with Quaraun as the only point of view character, EelKat, the primary point of view character of the Twighlight Manor series, alternates with Quaraun as a point of view character in Summoner of Darkness.

The novel tells 2 stories side by side, with all odd numbered chapters telling Quaraun's version of the story in the 1400s, and all even numbered chapters being written as letters from EelKat in the 1980s to her sister Lynxian.

EelKat is a 4th wall meta breaking narrator.


Answering Reader Questions:
GhoulSpawn's Sheep Explained

A staple in every story that features GhoulSpawn, is his glittering technicolour herd of sheep, that gather around him to listen as he reads Dungeon's & Dragons manuals, while sitting in a red armchair, in the middle of some field.

I own the red chair, btw, which you see me sitting in in my BookTube videos while I read. You can see it in this video here:

The 2 most common reader questions asked about GhoulSpawn are:

  1. What the hell is it with the sheep? They don't serve any plot point and seem to be there for no reason at all. What the hell?
  2. Does GhoulSpawn have sex with his sheep or not?

The first story to feature Gremlin as a main character was The Wild Years, published in 1987. In this story he is a member of PETA on a mission to shut down Procter & Gamble, after encountering a local sheep farm that supplies lambs for Iams dogfood. In the slaughterhouse on the farm is a conveyor belt, onto which baby lambs are herded, then dropped into a grinder where they are chopped up while still alive.

If you have a stomach strong enough to view such things, you can see BOTH the Proctor & Gamble animal by-product grinder and McDonald's hamburger making grinder in this video here, which shows it being used on baby chickens and baby cows.

(The chicken grinder shown in this video is P&G's Iams dog food processing plant and the cow grinder seen here are Mcdonald's hamburgers be made for you.)

Please be warned, this anti-war, human rights, and animal rights protest video shows EXTREMELY GRAPHIC real life footage of poachers, slaughterhouses, human trafficing, KKK attacks, beheaded ISIS victims, and children killed by landmines.

VIEWER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED! 

Back to GhoulSpawn, the series' resident uber extreme animal rights activist...

This was a very real farm and a very real machine which I had seen when I was 8 years old, and was the reason I became an animal rights activist and a vegetarian. This aspect of GhoulSpawn's character, his being a vegan animal rights activist with a vendetta against P&G is based off my own life. (If you did not know, I am the founder of the real world Procter & Gamble Boycott and many of the Twighlight Manor books were written specifically for the boycott, thus why a character like The Gremlin took centre stage.)

Readers came to know that if Gremlin was in the story, so too would be references to the evils of Procter & Gamble, Iams dogfood's horrific sheep grinding machine, and mysterious disappearing sheep, along with his random ramblings against McDonald's, Burger King, and other giants in the animal abuse industry.

Unfortunately for GhoulSpawn, he's often rambling on deaf ears, as Quaraun, Unicorn, and others from the 1400s, have no way to comprehend the future atrocities being described by the time traveller. The reactions of people from the 1400s varies from thinking GhoulSpawn is a raving lunatic (thus why he is dubbed "GhoulSpawn the Crazed") to people understanding that he has seen something which has horribly upset him and feeling pity for him, but not really being able to understand exactly what he is talking about.

And then, when he can't get people to listen to him, he starts pulling sheep out of his pockets, not realizing that back in the 1400s he's surrounded by superstitious people who view magic, Wizards, and such things as evil sorcery and people practicing them as witches to be burned and destroyed. As a teenager from the 1970s, GhoulSpawn has as much trouble comprehending the 1400s mind as they have comprehending him.

As no one but GhoulSpawn can get anything out of or even see anything in his pockets, he can safely stuff sheep in his pockets and then innocently stand there while people run around like mad trying to figure out where all the sheep are disappearing to. He'll stuff another sheep in his pockets every time no one is looking and will continue to do this until the entire herd is gone/in his pockets. At which point he'll then jump back in his 1974 AMC Gremlin, fly back to the 1400s and set the sheep loose in green pastures.

GhoulSpawn has a particular affinity for Cotswold sheep, and his habit of stealing/rescuing sheep and taking them to the past, is used as an explanation for why Cotswolds were so very overpopulated in Medieval times, yet today are considered an endangered species.

Over the years it became a running gag in the series for other characters to bully and tease Gremlin claiming he had a sex fetish for sheep. However, GhoulSpawn does not have sex with his sheep and often seen deeply upset over the accusation. Because most people in the 1400s do not believe GhoulSpawn is a time traveller from the future, they say that he made up his story of rescuing sheep from "the gambler" to cover up habits of beasillity. Quaraun and Unicorn remain two of the only people to believe GhoulSpawn's story as he has taken them to the future and they have seen the things he speaks of for themselves.

The reason for GhoulSpawn's obsession with sheep, is a secret he rarely reveals and is known only to his closet friends: while the series often bills him as a half-Elf, leaving people to assume in also half-Human, is is rather instead half-Demon, specifically he is an Uruisg, which is a Scottish Sheep Demon, a man with the upper body of a man and the lower body of a Cotswold sheep.

In keeping with the actual Irish, Welsh, and Scottish folklore about Uruisg, GhoulSpawn is somewhat of a trickster and causes chaos to ensure whenever he is around. Also like the actual folklore he is a notorious thief and pickpocket, compulsively unable to control his urge to simply pick up and take every shiny object he sees.


Who Is GhoulSpawn?

This is the first time GhoulSpawn appears using the name GhoulSpawn. In previous volumes he was using the name Glinta instead.

In the Twighlight Manor series he is known as The Gremlin.

Quaraun's teenaged lover GhoulSpawn is a "natural born" Sorcerer. He is a half-Elf/half Demon. 

GhoulSpawn's father was an evil Demon who commanded an army of Ghouls. Because of this, he was known simply as "The Ghoul". 

GhoulSpawn's mother was a Sun Elf whom had fallen in love with The Ghoul, but was forbidden by her family to have contact with him. She in turn ran away with her Demon lover, thus causing a war between Elves and Demons.

The Sun Elves tell a story of how their Princess was kidnapped and raped by the Ghoul, thus she gave birth to the Spawn of the Ghoul. Though his mother named him Glinta, she died while he was still very young, and his Elven kin, took to calling him GhoulSpawn as a way to brand him not one of them.

GhoulSpawn is an interdimensional time traveller, because he is unable to remain in any one time, place or dimension long, because he was born in the Hell Dimension, which exists outside of the realm of time and space as we know it. The Ghoul tried to escape the Sun Elves by going to the distant future (1974) and leaving his half-Elf son and the boy's mother there to live among a band of LSD addicted hippie Humans whom drove a 1974 AMC Gremlin.

The Sun-Elves eventually found their missing she-Elf and brought her back to the 1400s where she belonged, but she refused to leave her half-Demon son behind.

After his mother's death, GhoulSpawn was made a servant to his High Elf step-father and full blooded Elf step siblings, all of whom abused him and treated him like a slave. He grew up constantly being told he, because he was only a half-Elf, was unloved and unwanted and should have been killed at birth, resulting in the very low self esteem he has.

Neither Demons nor half-Elves are considered welcomed members of society, both being forced to live in small tribal groups on the outskirts of civilization. Both are often stoned to death or hung if they dare set foot in a city.

GhoulSpawn being both a Demon and a half-Elf is doubly mistreated by the majority of the world's population. He takes to travelling with Quaraun because Quaraun simply accepts GhoulSpawn as he is and is not bothered by being seen in the company of either a Demon or a half-Elf.

There are several instances when people try to bully GhoulSpawn and Quaraun (a high ranking full-blooded aristocratic High Elf) is quick to stand up for him, protecting and defending the half-Elf. Quaraun is often classified by other Elves as "insane" simply because he is willing to be friends with a half-Elf.

GhoulSpawn has a speech impediment which lessens when he is relaxed and grows worse the more nervous or frightened he becomes.

Around calm laid back characters like Quaraun, GhoulSpawn speaks without difficulty. However around domineering, headstrong, or bullying characters such as Unicorn or HellBorne, GhoulSpawn develops a stutter, making it difficult for him the get to the end of a sentence. 

Because he is a Demon, GhoulSpawn was born with natural magical abilities, making him a rare "natural born wizard" or sorcerer.

GhoulSpawn is typical of a Sorcerer in the Quaraun series, in that he has Demon blood, was thus born with a Demon's natural ability to cast magic on some levels, has taking to self-teaching himself how to control the magic powers he was born with, is outcast from society because of his link to Demons, and is generally not well thought of, even though he is not in any way evil, and is in fact the only part of the cast who could be considered anything close to being a Hero.

Being a time traveller, there are times when Quaraun encounteres both GhoulSpawn and his future counterpart Gremlin in the same novel.

This is the first novel in the series to feature multiple versions of GhoulSpawn in a single novel.


GhoulSpawn remains one of the most hated and most loved characters in the series. People who dislike him, absolutely despise him and have gone so far as to request I remove his character from the series entirely. While people who love him, often cite him as their favourite character and often request I add him into more stories more often.

For the people who don't like him, I'm sorry, but he remains one of my favourite characters of the series and he's not going anywhere.

For the people who want to see more of him: there are plans to make changes to several stories in the series to include him in the future editions, more often.
