What is your story about? This story actually started from the other side: its first incarnation was the paladin’s tale. Unfortunately, endless training is as boring in fiction as it is in real life, so I got to thinking about who would be so terrible that it would require so much effort and magic to defeat her. The Witch-Empress of Iley is hands-down the worst character whose brain I’ve inhabited so far, and she’s definitely not invited to dinner. Her making and her unmaking run in parallel: a structure that I found fun to work with.
