Secondary Character Saturday (9)


I've started a new weekly meme here and I'd love for you to join me. Saturdays are now dedicated to honor the characters that don't always get their voices heard, who support (or work to destroy) our beloved protagonists. This is for the third wheel in the love triangle (can you have wheels on a triangle?), for the BFFs, the family members, or even just the kind and loving (or deceitful and creepy) stranger who shows up and changes the game. We all know these stories wouldn't hold up without support so I'd like to take the time to highlight the best secondary characters I come across. This is an opportunity to talk about what makes these characters special, maybe to speculate what their world would be like without them, or maybe cast them in their own primary roles. If you'd like to create a SCS post leave your link in the comments and I'll check it out!

So today it's all about:

Kopano from Sweet Evil


This book was one of those cases where I'm pretty sure I was rooting for the wrong guy. Because I completely adored Kopano. He has this incredibly intense background, but he's managed to get away from that and rise above it. Of all the Nephilim, he's the only one who seems to have a handle on controlling his temptation. Plus, he's sweet and patient. And despite his nature, he's actually kind and considerate. He showed some interest in Anna, and I really wish more would have been done with that. I mean, he can't really compare to the son of lust, but he's by far the healthier choice in this situation.
I'm not crazy. I get why someone - especially teens - go for the hot guy who's all temptation and tortured soul. Most time I prefer the bad boy - sometimes that's hard to resist. Generally I would have cheered Kaidan on through the whole book. But, I don't know. Something about Kopano got to me. I think it's that he knows how things are and he's trying to do what's best for everyone else. He's not first on his list of people to take care of. He's there to watch over everyone, keep them in check, and keep them from getting into trouble with the wrong people.

I so hope Kopano gets a bigger role in the next book, because I definitely want to see more of him.

  1. I always fall for the secondary characters and then get annoyed when they don't appear enough! ;) I'm going to have to read Sweet Evil soon as I'm really curious about this Kopano guy now!
