For this week’s Sidekick Showcase Saturday, I’ve decided to focus on a Skulduggery Pleasant character, as I haven’t done one of those for a while and there are some great supporting characters in that series. The character I have chosen to focus on is China Sorrows.
I love China because she’s a morally ambiguous character, you can never really tell what her true intentions are, she was initially on the side of the Faceless Ones and then she becomes allied with Skulduggery and Valkyrie, though you can never completely be sure that China can be trusted. She’s very mysterious and manipulative, able to use the way she looks in order to charm people into doing what she wants, as she has a charm on her which makes people fall in love with her instantly. She is a very powerful sorceress, able to use different symbols for both offensive and defensive purposes and I love her symbol magic because it’s so different from everyone else’s magic and has so many different purposes. She’s kind of apathetic towards most people and has kind of a cold, uncaring attitude but that’s part of her character, she cares more about things than she does about people. Plus, she loves horses, which automatically makes her cool in my book!
I will be back with another Sidekick Showcase Saturday next week, but in the meantime, I will be posting a new Swoonworthy Sunday post as soon as possible.
