Update: Day 11

Well, I am at Day 11 of my NaNo month. As you can see from the numbers below, I am sitting at 20,664 words. Now, I am actually over 30,000 words since I had already started working on this story before this started.

For this updates post, I wanted to introduce you to one of the main characters in the book. First, I think it best to tell you about the Rakki. The Rakki are one of the races of Gallenor. Known as Dogkind among the rest of Gallenor, Rakki are a canine like race of people with thick coats of fur, a muzzle for an upper lip, and a shaggy tail. Rakki are lore keepers with one of the most impressive libraries in the known world. They make their home in the forests and their armies are manned by the best archers of any of the races.

Among the most talented of the archers is Treb. Treb, husband of Kiin, is a fearsome warrior, skilled archer, loyal officer, loving husband, and slightly over protective father.

Treb is a smart, calm, honest character with an innate sense of honor. He is not nearly old enough to have a sixteen year old daughter. But, that has not stopped him from being the best father to his adopted daughter that he can be. Some days, though, he tends to be a little too protective of her, especially when it comes to boys. Treb is the most well trained and highest ranked archer of the Rakki warriors. He and his wife spend a lot of time patrolling their forests for imps, a plague that seems to never go away. Though tactically minded and strictly loyal to his people, he is not emotionless. When his wife gives him a command, he follows, when his daughter is scared or hurt, he holds her until she is done crying. Both he and his wife join Markus on his journey to find the Dragonwand and hopefully free the wizards of Gallenor.
