The Thoughtful Side of Arstinax

I'm going to start my blog by touching on each character in my new edition novel, The Beast at the Gate. Today, I'm going to comment on Arstinax.

I admit, the character Arstinax is a literary challenge. He is a paradox (a point I mentioned in the novel), a big hulking fellow with a complexity that’s more akin to a philosopher than a strongman.   I’m not a fan of stereotypes, so your standard-built muscleman who’s not very bright would be too lazy and predicable as a personality type for my tastes. Arstinax is more of a thinking man’s big guy, and the perfect foil to Rayna.
