~The World of Rowan Blaize: Character Profiles~ posted 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: Circe
*IMDb Dream-Portrayal By: Sigourney Weaver
Nature/Occupation: Goddess (with attitude) … and occasional zookeeper.
Age: Born not terribly long after the Dawn of Time. Yeah. That little “moment.”
Background: The daughter of a solar-deity and a water-spirit, Circe was one of the lesser (but still annoyingly mighty) deities who opted for more earthly accommodations than those offered atop Olympus through the ages. She came to occupy the legendary island of Aeaea and there spent centuries performing complex and often vindictive sorcery. Yep. Vindictive. There’s a reason why, but only I can reveal that in Book Four. Ahem. Shipwrecked sailors were the primary targets of Circe’s various experiments and machinations, back in her “salad days,” but other divinities feared her powers, too. Rowan Blaize’s mother and his aunt, Ariadne, were once handmaidens of this temperamental goddess on her lonely island. Despite Circe’s tendency to meddle relentlessly in the personal lives of various swashbuckling demigods, she endured into the modern age with her powers, her beauty — and her vengeful nature — well intact. She’s got it all, frankly.
Significant Traits: Like any divine embodied spirit, Circe has an arrogant attitude when it comes to beings of inferior mettle. Her unchecked arrogance, however, has often been her undoing in conflicts against her peers and also against wily mortal heroes. Seductive and bitter, she remains a perilous foe and a fairweather friend, even in the best of times.
Unique Powers/Abilities: There are few spells and magical achievements beyond Circe’s capability, but the power of transmogrification seems to be her forte. And how.
Classic Quote: “Imagine, Rowan, if you will, the vision that I see — the world’s most mighty sorcerers … and all controlled by me.”
Featured In: Book One (Rowan Blaize) and Book Four (As-yet Untitled)

…the twin sister you never had? oh come on admit it, you just want to go on a quest with her 😉
I would welcome a quest with Sigourney … name the century … name the planet!
century – who cares, planet – 3rd star to the left and straight on till morning, sidekicks – Mr Rickman & myself
Sigourney Weaver: “Chompers!? What are these things DOING here? What purpose could they possibly serve? I want to strangle whoever wrote this stupid episode!”
Seriously: I gotta watch this again, soon — if only to see Rickman in that prosthetic headpiece again. I may have to blog about it today. I feel it.
“There were five curtain calls. I was an actor once, damn it. Now look at me. Look at me! I won’t go out there and say that stupid line one more time. ”
I believe I have to watch it this evening 🙂
Oh, that was indeed one of my favorite lines from the film! Only Rickman could have delivered that line with such hilarious angst and distaste and excellent timing. I didn’t get a chance to watch it again the other night but tonight is going to be the night!
looking forward to what you will write about the truely epic and highly acclaimed movie (at least by us) under fresh impression
