Word of the Day
Monday, July 2, 2007
Parrin Aeschere (proper noun) — The name of a god in Mahriket in the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods; a god who plays a minor role in the first and second books of the Choices trilogy, but who will surprise everyone in Book III

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender borrowed this name from the epic poem Beowulf…Aeschere was the counselor to and a warrior of King Hrothgar. Now, I don't want anyone to equate Master Rothahn with Hrothgar (you are welcome to view Nigel Taiman in that role as he matures through his character arc), but Parrin Aeschere is a counselor to kings in my eyes; I think the "Parrin" half of his name is just something he liked and so I let him keep it—I usually let the other characters refer to him by just "Parrin" and he seems content with that.

Word in a Sentence (from the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 25): His name was Parrin Aeschere and he was a doctor. In fact, he was the doctor who had delivered Master Rothahn nearly three-thousand years before.

Your turn! Would you like to make up a sentence about this counselor/doctor, or would you like to make up something about counselors and doctors in general? You know I'm flexible…
