Trying the 100 themes challenge thing again, but using the themes to try and develop characters and places for the world my novel "Clockwork Heart" will be set in.
In this case we get the first look at the main male character for the story. While his look is, at this point, subject to change, I have finally decided on a name for him.
Basic info: He's a noble, and not a nice one. Life hasn't been good to this prince and his heart has gone cold in his adult years. Unknown to him, he has had a curse on him since he was born. What part that curse will ultimately play in his redemption or destruction, only time and his own choices will tell.
