~The World of Rowan Blaize: Character Profiles~ by JONATHAN KIERAN

The realm of ancient sorcerer Rowan Blaize is one in which otherwise hidden worlds collide with (or dwell alongside) our own mortal sphere. Rowan’s existence is played-out across landscapes and dreamscapes that encompass “worlds within worlds,” providing the observant traveler ample opportunity to encounter creatures of dazzling magical qualities. Some of these beings are friendly, others are belligerent, and still others have a hard time deciding among the various options. From one universe to the next, certain things never change. Enjoy meeting the main characters of Rowan’s adventurous story in the profiles below and remember: wherever the world and whomever the wayfarer … only enchantment is immortal.

Character Name: Serenity Turnbull

*IMDb Dream-Portrayal By: Michelle Williams

A slightly "less-glam" Michelle Williams has the charm and sparkle to play the gentle-yet-passionate St. Augustine witch, Ms. Serenity Turnbull.

A slightly “less-glam” Michelle Williams has the charm and sparkle to play the gentle-yet-passionate St. Augustine witch, Ms. Serenity Turnbull.

Nature/Occupation: Witch, environmental activist, self-help author, jewelry designer and university lecturer.

Age: Hundreds—perhaps even thousands—of years.

Background: Serenity Turnbull (her given name is “Eudoxia”) is a witch with a considerable and variegated past. Coming from a magical family rumored to be descended from the goddess Cerridwen, Serenity (like all witches that survive the ages) is anything if not adaptable. She existed in Europe in medieval times, survived plagues, two mortal husbands, the demise of half-mortal children, the stock market crash of 1929, and lived in California in the 1960s, where she became involved with various environmental causes. She can also drink a horde of pirates under the table, if absolutely necessary. Serenity has lived and worked in St. Augustine for only a short time compared to Leticia Beauregard and Gert Gokey (who claim not to like her, though they really do) but more than any other local enchantress, she is a steadfast friend and helpmate to the many lesser magical beings inhabiting the Ancient City.

Significant Traits: Serenity is a gentle and winsomely flaky sorceress, flitting from one interest to another, but is passionate about every idea she espouses. More powerful than she is given credit for, Serenity favors bright sundresses and turquoise jewelry. She employs a somewhat morose Shih Tzu familiar named “Emory” along with an anaconda familiar named “Guadalupe”. Serenity has an on-again, off-again long-distance relationship with a nebbish warlock named Percival, who is an archaeologist.

Unique Powers/Abilities: Serenity is a whiz when it comes to sustainable household cleaning spells and practical incantations. She can also throw a pretty mean fireball and summon astonishing tides in order to rescue stranded sea mammals.

Classic Quote: “That’s likely because no one can get a word in edgewise with a blabbermouth spirit like you!”

Featured In: Book Two (Rowan Blaize and the Hand of Djin Rummy) and Book Four (As-Yet-Untitled)
