~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: Chesterfield Rummy

*IMDb Dream-Portrayal By: Jude Law

The excellent Jude Law would make an unforgettable Chesterfield Rummy. Think of his spot-on Southern accent and sleazy bearing as the hustler in 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. Yes, he could play a pageant-brat's daddy.

Nature/Occupation: Human talent-agent, city councilman, oyster-shack owner, former ostrich farmer and failed evangelical preacher.

Age: 40s

Background: Raised in the Deep South, Chesterfield Rummy is a man in search of his ticket to success … so long as that ticket can be found on the back of his six year-old daughter, BonSashay. Having failed miserably at ostrich farming and preaching, Chesterfield finally stumbled upon moderate success as a sleazy city councilman, diner owner, and part-time agent for BonSashay’s attempts to snag one glittering child beauty pageant crown after another. Shameless and essentially clueless, Chesterfield drugs his unbalanced wife, Fancy Rummy, and keeps her locked in a padded room beneath the staircase of their home. Determined to make his daughter a star and secure his fortune, there is no pavement he is unwilling to pound in search of extra money needed to fund the endeavor.

Significant Traits: Avarice, desperation, deviousness, cowardice, disloyalty, loquaciousness, etc. Chesterfield wears a terrifying “crew-cut” toupee and favors garish three-piece suits to match his personality.

Unique Powers/Abilities: He can bargain his way out of a jam with a demon, toute de suite.

Classic Quote: “You laid an egg at that Channel 6 interview, child. A big, bratty, cracked-up stinkin’ egg. What in thunder do you think we spent all that money on etiquette lessons for, girl?”

Featured In: Book Two (Rowan Blaize and the Hand of Djin Rummy)

*If I am ever fortunate enough to see Rowan’s adventures adapted for film or for the stage, this is the actor (or creature) I can most readily visualize playing the character in a given profile.


Escape the Imminent Collapse of a Largely Illiterate Civilization, Friends, if Only for a Few Hours. Get acquainted with the comparatively sane world of Rowan Blaize …

One witty 2,800 year-old warlock. A suspicious storm that hurls him to earth near London. A goddess who wants to destroy the world. The catch? She needs Rowan’s face. REMOVED.

  1. If only Walsh was still young

    Or how about John Goodman???

    Jack Galante President Galante Family Winery, Inc. “Always drink upstream from the herd!”

    • John Goodman would definitely bring the heft and huffing required for the character of Chesterfield! But they’d need to grease him up. Slick as bacon grease on a brass doorknob …;-)

  2. oh no, not Jude…every female would fall for CRummy then, trust me on that.

    • Well, they would have to “grease him up” to play the part. Make him really oily and desperate. I don’t think he would accept the role, though playing against type surely would win him that elusive Oscar (or BAFTA)!
