Every Friday, I’m posting something about how the real life “The Four” overlap with the fictional four Kota Warriors.
As some of you know, The Kota Series is based on what “The Four” (myself, my brother, and our childhood best friends Kaly and Luke) played as kids. Each of us is represented by one of the four Kota Warriors (Bullseye, Rave, Tigris, Whitewolf). So, I’ll be sharing personal quirks that carried over into fiction, fun/weird stories we played as kids, our childhood drawings, pictures related to The Four and The Kota, etc.
Should be fun, and it’ll give you an idea of how weird or little minds were as we created this story that, years later, turned into my book series. 🙂
This week, Abduction.
Kaly is responsible for the original creation of this character. I think he was part genie, part demon, or something…hence the costume. When we played, I remember he was always the ultimate creepy Bad Buy. He was the evil Dominion minion who could possess any one of us at any given time (assuming it was convenient to our storylines), and it was handy that anyone could play him because he could take on anyone’s body.
Over the years and as The Kota evolved, Abduction became more and more important in my head. I think the fact that he always creeped me out gave me an excuse to make him a worse and worse person in the books. And, how I eventually use him (avoiding spoilers) is one of my darker plotlines, I think.
But this is what he looked like in the beginning.
