Two character concepts from a story I’m stitching together out of two old ones. It doesn’t even have a working title right now but its basically in an alternate modern-day where magic use is a rare genetic trait.
“The U.S. government, after forcing magic-users onto reservations crosses the line with new taxes and sanctions and an uprising forces a stand-off between power magic users and armed forces. Each side solicits help from two of the most powerful witches in the entire world.”
I want the story to mainly focus on these two witches, their powers (which I still need to work out), and why they take the respective sides that they do:
Bordeux Singh is an Indian-French citizen who’s got a huge ego and a large main-stream following, as she does many late-night and morning talk show interviews. She takes the side of the American government in working to subduing the rebelling magic users.
Rudolf Rosenthal is a Canadian citizen who’s much more shy and reserved and despite her tattoos, scars, and clothing is fairly meek and somewhat shy. She’s only written a few books on magic but otherwise doesn’t like the attention. She takes the side of the antagonized American magic users.
