Welcome to a new feature that will be popping up in the blog posts from time to time: Character Focus. This is where I talk a little bit about the conception and development of different characters from my works and after this one, it will be driven by popular demand, so if you’ve got a favorite character and want me to talk about them, just let me know on the forums or in the comments and I’ll make it happen.
This week, we’ll start with the original Descendants character: Warrick Kaine. Now, some of you have read my old blog and know that Chaos and Darkness both existed years before the Descendants, but it’s important to know that when they were created, Chaos and Darkness did have the same codenames, but their powers were vastly different (Darkness’s powers were acidic, Chaos had a lot of fire powers), and they were both just alter egos of myself and whatever girl I had a crush on at the time. So they don’t count.
Warrick counts though, because he started it all. Somewhere about 2006, I was invited to play in a Marvel Universe HERO System game set in the Xavier Institute.

It’s kind of a thing among amateur writers to cast their characters as if they were making a movie. It’s a fun, harmless little bit of day dreaming, and can actually help to flesh out the character by giving you a base to work on. And it insulates us from the cold, harsh reality of the fact that we don’t get to make that description and no matter who we want, any young non-buff, non-hearthtrob male will be played by Shia Lebouf.
I’m not really good at this game. Literally everyone in the world knows more about actors than I do. People always end up with a list of people from obscure cable shows and art-house movies and I’m left with a list composed mostly of people who get their names on posters for movies uncultured everydudes like me see.
But I am a voice acting buff, so I can and have cast Descendants: The Animated Series. Maybe I should have made this post about that. Oh well.
Anyway, I recently read somewhere that Tita Kubo, creator of the anime series Bleach, assigned theme songs to every member of his very large principle cast and I thought it was an … Continue reading

For years, a mysterious figure named George has watched over the Descendants, lending the occasional aide and respite with little being known about him. Now, George has come to visit the Descendants and he’s bringing with him the answer to one of the longest held secrets of The Descendants!
The confluence of events seen in Volume 4 might seem random, but the lead-up is not quite over. But before the Descendants Universe plunges into Volume 5, there’s still the aftermath of Inexorable to worry about. One thing is certain: everything that came before was just the opening act.
Morganna’s Knight Inexorable is unleashed. His name means ‘unstoppable’ and it’s anything but a hollow boast. Can the Descendants and Occult come together to form an immovable object before someone loses their life? They might need a little help with this one.
In this double sized Descendants Special, two and a half months leading up to Descendants Appreciation Day fly by and we get to see how the core cast deals with recent events and prepares for the future.
