Wherein Jack talks about Dean.
Dean, Hunter's younger brother. Not the Dean from a certain TV show.
I will be gone for a week. I thought I would still be around and post, but after some orders to rest and relax, and after giving it some thought, I have decided to just take a week off from posts. I plan to get lots of sleep and write. The plan is to finish the third Haphazard book before NaNo.
Which is why I'm introducing you to Dean. Because one should know the new characters before NaNo.
Dean is thirteen. He's spent nearly his whole life in an underground safe house with only his older brother for company. He's been trained on how to fight and survive in the post Steam War world. He knows how to shot and hit a moving target, he can fight, he's a pretty good aim at throwing knives,
Like his brother, Dean's hair and eyes are dark brown. He is short though hopes to get a growth spurt soon.
Dean is talkative and curious. He is eager to explore the world once the safe house doors open even though there is danger waiting. He is always asking Hunter questions even if there is no chance of Hunter knowing the answers. He is easy to get along with and, if there were other people with them, would likely be the friend of everyone. He likes people and can't wait to find the other survivors.
Unlike his brother, Dean doesn't like reading and would much rather spend his time climbing trees or finding something he's never see before. He's nearly always walking into trouble - trouble Hunter gets him out of even though Dean has the ability to get himself out of anything he gets in to.
Hunter is kind of like Dean's teacher. He taught him to read and write and do math, though Dean is anything but a good student. Hunter's patience were always tried during school lessons.
And that is about all I know of him right now. I'm sure I'll learn more as I write.
For now, I leave you with a quote from Mr. Peabody and Sherman and bid you all a wonderful upcoming week. See you in seven days!
