Character Hot Seat: Gabriel the Destiny God & Baron Arthuru Kernaghan

Baron Kernaghan is the time-locked main villain of the series and tied for 3rd with Luke Callindor and Fizzle.  He is the great darkness that was wiped from the memory and history of Windemere.  His return will revive his legacy, which can cause insanity in mere mortals.  Also, the gods have their Law of Influence this time, so they can’t step in to stop him.  This is where the champions come in.  Arthuru is also the father of Stephen the sadistic madman that is after Nyx.

On the other side of the conflict is Gabriel the God of Destiny.  He has created the champions and several of the Baron’s henchmen because the game has to be even, but he’s definitely choosing sides.  There’s a history between these two has been hinted at and a few clues dropped throughout the books.  Sleeper of the Wildwood Fugue definitely has a lot about them and the early conflict that placed both of these once mortal men into their current roles.  So who better to put in a room together?  Especially since they rarely get any book time.

  1. I just saw this, sorry. I do have a question for Gabriel, if he’s still around: can’t he ever, like, turn the blind eye?

    • Gabriel- It is possible, but it would accomplish nothing more than delaying the inevitable. In some cases, it could make things worse or damage another destiny. My role is one of constant vigilance. One of my predecessors attempted to let nature take its course and that is where I came from. So I know from experience that Windemere has a habit of keeping the God of Destiny busy.

      • Is the god of destiny constrained by destiny himself?

      • Gabriel- If I am then it is one that I am unaware of. To my knowledge, my original destiny was to be nothing more than a spectator of history. Now I am here. I would imagine that my own path would be hidden from my eyes to avoid manipulations.

      • Should us mortals resign to our destiny, or should we fight it? If the latter, are we not in risk of actually speeding it up instead of preventing it?

        I guess what I’m really asking is, in the end, is it worth fighting, or is it futile?

      • Gabriel- That is your decision, but your world might be different than mine. In Windemere, destiny runs alongside free will. At least that is how I do it. Having a rigid path makes it fragile while having no path leads to chaos. My job is to bestow a goal on someone’s life while their method of getting there is entirely in their hands. I add a few unavoidable events for those that are destined for greatness, but I find that leaving the details up to mortals is wiser. In regards to the worthiness of fighting, that is another thing that is up to you. I am forbidden from controlling the minds and hearts of mortals.
