Australian sci-fi characters
Lore of Energy and Light® has a plethora of Australian sci-fi characters across the book series. Check out this list of main point-of-view characters:
Crown Yesmane Galina is a main character in book 1, Quorum Treaty. She is one of several Australian sci-fi characters to break the mould of the ‘good looking female that just follows around the male lead’. Far from it, Yesmane Galina is a leader – complex with insecurities, and a dark secret about her appearance. She is not afraid to go against the wishes of the Interstellar Quorum.
“I know this. Those who would stop you, Yesmane, hate you because of what they’ve created. Now their propaganda is beyond their control, and so are you. It is the idea of you that scares them. And killing an idea is like trying to stomp on air.”
Zach Salt keeps things light-hearted with his unique brand of humour; humour that keeps at bay his tendency towards depression. Zach is certainly not a traditional leading male character – after all he is short and ginger-haired. But his appeal no doubt stems from his humour, sense of duty and inner strengths. As Australian sci-fi characters go, Zach Salt breaks away from the trope of ‘strong male’ without flaws and regrets. He has lost loved-ones and thinks often about his regrets, one being that his wife Christabel did not escape the Valker assault on Earth. It’s fair to say, seeing a reptilian for the first time came as a shock…
“The makeshift stage creaked under stress. Dull thuds accompanied the stride of a tall creature. It stood taller than the tallest man. Zach pressed his back against the wall as a sudden flush hit him. This creature was not from Earth. It had small, blue eyes overlooking a broad, flat nose on a head larger than a human’s. Grooves tracked down a bald scalp. Zach could not see any lips, just a wide, upward-shaped mouth on a square chin.”
Landen Dark is a commander of the Alliance and a battle-hardened warrior who has fought across the star systems of Pretenia and Libb. Despite being responsible for some key victories, the Interstellar Quorum regards Commander Dark as a thorn in their side for disobeying orders on occasion. Like other Australian sci-fi characters Landen has to choose between a light or dark path.
