She’s still a bitch.

The fact is, I did not have a very good idea of who exactly Kenia was when I introduced her in July of 1973. What I knew was I needed a pretty blonde for Galon to rescue and fall in love with. After all, that’s what heroes do, doncha know? They rescue the damsel in distress. That single concept has defined Western Civilization forever. In our literature, the hero rescues the girl. The bad guy is the one who puts her in peril. There are variations and complications to that theme, but that’s the basic idea.

Once Kenia had been rescued and romance set in motion, Kenia began to define herself. She was not a nice person. Not that she was an evil character at heart. She had loyalty and courage. Her negatives came from her commitment to a political agenda. She was queen and duty bound to do what a queen is required to do. It was obvious if she and Galon were ever to get it on, Kenia would have to be separated from her kingdom.

That is accomplished. But I wondered in my head if I could maintain her personality without her crown as a crutch. Turns out, there doesn’t seem to be a problem. As soon as I started writing words for her it became obvious, She’s still a bitch. Galon shall certainly have his hands full with this former queen. I could have teamed Galon with a nice girl and he could settle down to the quiet life. But that all seemed so boring somehow. So welcome to Kenia as she was intended, and she’s still a bitch!

Next week; Tandra Page 974 titled “The Flawed Knife.”

See ya then.

May the sun always shine on your parade.
