The only things absent are the suit of armor and the white horse. He's the strong, silent hero with a strong sense of justice.
But this poses a problem similar to the "noble savage" stereotype Wôbi Skog Wsizokw could so easily fall into. So of course Absalom has to have some flaws. He knows his size alone intimidates other men, and isn't above using that to make a point if he has to. And to the female reader Absalom, in a word, is just yummy.
Completely devoted to Alice and anticipating first-time fatherhood with anxious joy, he is tormented by the gift of sight. He's known for the disturbing premonitions that plague him, and looks upon his clairvoyance as a curse.
An expert with both knife and musket, he is not someone you would want as an opponent.
This morning I sent off my FIRST ROUGH DRAFT to my amazing editor, but a lot of work remains. I may have to add a little more depth to Absalom, hard as it is for me to write a male POV. But I don't expect too much tweaking to be necessary.
