Dear scifi readers,
I would like to tell you about the strong supporting character in my Creepy Cases books. I created Art Nekuma to be the exact opposite of Maxx.
Maxx is a genetically gifted Razion-Coterie—the prominent species of the desert—and arguably Sesla. Art is a Pirtt-Coterie—the exact opposite.
Art is a genetic member of the lowest clan on Sesla—without argument. Even though he was raised by a single mother who suffered from progressive doxer fever and spent years in Dunjyn Asylum, he and him mother had a close relationship.
Even though Art’s peers and teachers during his youth didn’t recognize his well masked talents, his mother did. She encouraged him throughout his young life.
Because of his responsibilities at home, and a sick mother, Art’s grades were less than remarkable. Higher education wasn’t an option. He endured a series of random, degrading jobs, during his youth and as a young adult.
As you can see, Art is the exact opposite of Maxx. He was also a fun character to create.
I hope you found this helpful.
