Fidelyon: ‘H’ With Ethaniel

Ethaniel, the main character in my novel, Fidelyon, has taken it upon himself to introduce you to his world by going through an alphabet of terms and names.


I have two friends whose names start with H.

The first is more of an acquaintance since I’ve yet to get to know him better…something I do hope to do one of these days. His name is Haytham and he is one of Elentisa’s oldest councilmen. Don’t for a moment think that ‘oldest’ signifies decrepit in any way. His grip still makes my arm hurt and he claims to be as strong in battle as any younger man. Do I believe him? Yes, I do.

The name of my other friend is Hilith. Originally a guard in the king’s castle, he was one of the first men Ard recruited while assembling a new Kingsguard. Of course, Hilith grumbles about the hours he’s made to stand in the cold or the late nights on guard, but he enjoys the position and always has a ready quip and flashing smile for every occasion.

    Haytham sounds cool. Like someone I’d want to stand beside me in battle. 🙂
    Hilith… in your brief description he reminds me of David. 😉

  2. Whoa, I saw that picture of Haythem and just about flipped because that actor will forever be ‘Mr. Tulkinghorn’ to me… *hopes you’ve seen Bleak House*

  3. That guy you have for Haythem reminds me of the guy who played Chancellor Valorum in Star Wars Ep. I

  4. Did Hilith have much of a part in the earlier versions? I don’t remember him. . . maybe it’s just been too long. He sounds like a nice typical sidekick, with the humour and all, nothing ambiguous and/or scary the way *some people* turn out.
