You see, Luc is usually the bad guy. He doesn’t often get to be portrayed in a good light. Usually, he’s out to take over the world and it’s up to the heroes to stop him. I’ve even done that myself. In Path of Angels, Michael and his brothers are trying to stop Hell from being unleashed.
This has caused some trepidation for me. I’ve wondered how people will react to Luc. Can they accept him as the good guy on a mission to redeem himself? Or is that too farfetched. But this fact made Luc a blast to write. When he gets cheeky, he gets really cheeky in an attempt to live up to his reputation. It also causes him to seriously doubt himself and wonder if he should even bother. He thinks he doesn’t deserve forgiveness.
I want the reader to know who Luc is without him stating it. There are hints throughout the novel, but it was important to not reveal the truth until the end. Until Luc comes to terms with it himself.
It’s strange to write someone that is usually a villain as the hero. It makes you approach them differently. You explore them more. You also get to get into their heads during when they’re the baddie, and that in itself is fun to write.
