It's been too long since I have blogging about a character in Cursed with Power, so I figured I should start out with this because there may be some of you—as hard as it is to believe, I know—that are interested in these posts.
Daciana is Grefin's Healer in the book. Whether you've read that far in the book or no is of no relevance. Anyways, the picture above was one that automatically reminded me of her because Celestria's first meeting with her was when she had paintings on her face. However, I will have to admit that she is a difficult character to work with for two reasons:
- She is needed in the book, but there cannot be much history behind her
- Her abilities are unique and confusing
Being a Healer, Daciana does not have magical abilities but she does have a specialty in curing magical wounds and such. The few readers who have read up to the point where they were introduced to Daciana had interesting—to say the least—reactions to her character. Some were not bothered by her, while others said that they did not care for her character and find themselves frustrated with her. Could it be Celestria's attitude toward her that also affects the readers? It's hard to say, but sometimes it would seem that Celestria's feelings for characters can affect how others perceive them. All in all, I suppose there is not much more that I can say about Daciana, except that I have spent time thinking over everything she does to heal magicians and I'm telling you the truth when I say it gets extremely complicated.
