So, I am diving into updating the character guide for The Breeds. Usually it takes me a while to do it, mostly because I have to brace myself to tackle the endless issues that come with it. The errors and changes in backstory make me nuts, since I have to basically re-edit the entire thing every time a new book comes out. Physical descriptions change within books, histories are altered, that sort of thing. But Bengal’s Quest takes the pain to a Whole. New. Level.
There is Claire Martinez. There is Fawn Corrigan. And now there is Cat/Catarina. I have one biography for Fawn as Claire. One for Fawn, since she was really a different character. Now there is Cat, who basically is a whole new character, and to top it off, there is the real Claire Martinez. Sort of. Not quite sure how to even begin to tackle that one. And Judd? He was Klah Hunter, but somehow became Cullen Maverick. I think. And he went from light brown hair and brown eyes to black hair and green eyes. I hate it when that happens. Keegan just became Keenan, too. And his eyes changed color.
Oh, and for the screw up hall of fame award, I present to you Lincoln Martinez. Formerly the son of Terran Martinez and brother to Chelsea and Isabelle Martinez. Now? Son of Raymond and Maria Martinez and brother of Claire/Fawn/Cat/Catarina/Claire. There. Top that one. Changing of eye color? I can let that one slip by. Changing of family? Eh, harder to handle.
My plan is to try and condense, get rid of some of the conflicting information, and simplify some of the multiple-names for the same characters under one biography. Not sure it will work, but it can’t be much more confusing than it is already.
