Appealing Character’s First Description
I wasn’t sure how to approach this this week’s topic. The first physical description of a character in a book you find appealing. What is the definition we’re using for appealing? Sex appeal? Physically attractive? Wanna be this character appeal?
The men’s attention had shifted to a young man crouched on a stool in the corner. He had barely looked up through my appearance and interrogation, but kept his head bent, hand clutching the opposite shoulder, rocking slightly back and forth in pain.
The shoulder had been wounded; there was a deep ragged furrow across the top, and blood was running freely down the young man’s breast. But more shocking was the shoulder joint itself. A dreadful hump rose on that side, and the arm hung at an impossible angle.
Though drawn with pain and stubbled with red beard, it was a strong, good-humored face.
Who is this man?
None other than Jamie Fraser.
