Happy Birthday, Dante!

On April 2 of the year 1881, in the world of Wandering Soul, Dante Lucerne—the hero of the book—celebrated his 36th birthday. He spent the day in quiet reflection, wandering through the theatre where he worked and lived.

Rather than give in to the feelings of isolation that sometimes plagued him due to people’s reaction to his disfigurement, he chose to focus on memories of his mother, Deirdre. He spent the day consciously being grateful for the gift of life that she gave him.

He had no idea it would be his last birthday spent in the Victorian era, or that when he met Elsa Sinclair he would suddenly go from 36 to 170! He could never have imagined that his simple life would feed into stories that evolved into legend, or dared to dream that their friendship could grow into love.

    Oh man, now I wanna see him in a cheesy party hat with a bunch of people at Applebee’s clapping and singing while he is being all confused and cute, haha.
