Not the typical warrior one thinks of when calling to mind female warriors, she's one of my favorite characters I've written. Because of the way I created the world of Dragonath, Andillrian didn’t have to hide or disguise herself as a man in order to join the Palace Guard, which is commonly seen in fantasy. She was accepted due to her abilities, hard work, and sheer determination to never settle for anything less than perfection. She's independent, but in a quiet, understated way. She’s humble, compassionate, and extremely loyal. But there’s a ruthless edge to her which sets her apart from everyone else, and which I think really encompasses her true strength.
What qualities do you like best about Andillrian?
With painful slowness, she slid an arrow from her worn leather quiver and nocked it to her bow. Keeping the weapon lowered, she stood perfectly still. Darrak began to think her actions were only precautionary when, with a swiftness he swore wasn’t human, Andillrian whirled around and released the arrow. There was a soft thud, and he turned in time to see a man’s body roll onto the path. It came to a stop by his feet, Andillrian’s arrow lodged perfectly between lifeless brown eyes.
