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. Yesmane is a feisty, emotional and straight-talking Warrior of the “Cross”. 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.
“Those who hate you Yesmane, hate you because of what they have created. Now their propaganda is beyond their control, and so are you. They cannot be rid of you easily. 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 make-shift stage creaked under stress. Dull thuds accompanied the stride of a stocky creature. It stood taller than the tallest man. Zach’s back pressed against the wall as his heart went into overdrive. Okay, stay calm. Take it easy. Recap: You are in an underground military base, where your superior just wants some honest feedback on the crazy-little-green-men-story he’s tellin’ a room full of undertakers. There is a perfectly rational explaina-farrrrrrrr trumpet-head-twat-waffle! He saw that the creature was not from Earth.”
Alzarrae is a young boy living in poverty on Earth. Due to sad circumstances he matured quickly beyond his years, and when the Valkers come to the Milky Way, that timeline is accelerated. Alzarrae is shy and unadventurous; so traveling the stars is the farthest thing from his mind. But that’s exactly what happens. Thrust into the intergalactic war against the reptilians, he meets new races and sees new worlds.
“Alzarrae dreamt not of what lay beyond the Shanty, never yearned to see the desert or cities abroad. Whilst other boys may have wanted to travel the world and stars, Alzarrae was content with Caleb, the Shanty Doctor and his mother.”
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.
“Tall, calculating, a Warrior’s Warrior – Landen managed a firm but fair reputation amongst those in his charge. He had thick, dark brunette hair heading towards black with a few stray brown and grey strands thrown in, some of which dangled in front of his chiselled face. His hair came to shoulder length on a solid frame of toned muscles, lightly tanned skin and dark facial stubble. He had cunning eyes, muted in hazel. Those eyes had seen a hundred deaths and all the things that parents told their children were not real.”
