Guest Post: Plethora of Player blog tour: Shawn Lamb introduces Dagar

 We are continuing our visit to Allon, the site of Shawn Lamb’s new book “The Great Battle”. Today our guest is Dagar. We hope to get his reaction to Captain Kell’s assessment of his behavior during our first interview earlier this week. Check out the interview here.

Thank you for agreeing to this interview, Dagar. Being armed with a sword, I assume you are of the warrior caste. Is there a uniform for warriors or does each wear their own suit?

This suit is more to my taste, though Kell would argue otherwise in respect to our uniforms.

You sound a bit perturbed. Did the Trio meeting not go well?

Let’s just say I’m not happy with Kell’s tactics. If he had spoken to me first, I would have told him about this rogue.

Then you know the Guardian’s identity.

That’s not important! Kell thinks he can force the issue by public humiliation.

If you don’t know the identity then why are you resistant to the captain’s attempt to discover who is abusing the mortals?

Mortals! The fickle beings use Guardians to play magic tricks for their amusement. If Kell really wanted to discover the underlying problem, he would focus on them and not spy on fellow Guardians.

Spy? The captain mentioned he was trying to learn if the rogue is connected to other Guardians.

He can find a better way than sending his insufferable protégé.

Who might that be?

Avatar. He is Kell’s aide.

Ah, yes, the captain mentioned him last time. Kell also said he wants to help you change your attitude toward mortals. Perhaps that’s why he sent Avatar, to help you.

(Hearty, mocking laughter) Hardly why he sent Avatar. As for my attitude change, Kell should look to himself in respect to mortals – and other Guardians.

Do you consider Kell a friend? He spoke of you in those terms.

Kell … is Kell, serious and blindly dedicated duty. There might have been a friendship … before Radnor.

What is Radnor?

A battle, or more truthfully, a mortal rebellion ruthlessly put down by Kell and a company of elite warriors. It is a sight I will never forget.

So you were there?


The captain was right about Guardian eyes! While his golden eyes shown with authority, your mahogany eyes hold great anger.

Disgust is more like it. They wanted self-rule and not dictated to like children. Can’t blame them. They have some intelligence, but mostly stubborn self-will.

Maybe you can help Kell and the others to sway the mortals to cooperate?

Not while his insufferable protégé is nosing around my business.

It sounds like you have a real problem with Avatar.

A problem I will remedy very shortly.

What would it take for you to change?

This interview is over!

Well, thank you for your time. Perhaps on Friday, Avatar will be more forth coming with answers.
