Word of the Day
Wednesday, June 06, 2007
Priam Jeel (proper noun) — In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Priam Jeel is the bigoted father of Sorne Jeel. Priam is not a Geasa'n, but his son is, which would lead you to believe his lovely wife, Alison, whom we never get to meet, was Geasa'n and the big oaf just never figured it out (and she was very wise not to let on about it).

Etymology: Priam is the Greek mythological figure who fathered the prophetess Cassandra. Oooh, what might that say about young Sorne? The name Jeel just appealed to fantasy author Sandy Lender and she plucked it out of the air as Sorne suggested it…

Word in a Sentence (from the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 85): She knew it was Priam Jeel who spoke out of fear, and she glared at the greasy man with contempt. "How dare you accuse your son of your crime?"

(I love Chariss. That's her talking there.)

Your turn! What Greek mythology can you fling out here for us? Or would you like to try your hand at belittling Priam Jeel? He's fair game today.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
