Character Store

I've seen a few cover stores ( well, a lot really) but I haven't seen a character store. So I made one. The store is for those small characters who have about a page before they are forgotten or else for those huge crowds that a couple of people stick out of. You can also use a description if you have a character's personality and adventures planned out but can't quite conjure them up in your mind. If you are pressed for time or struggling to find the right words, please feel free to use my descriptions. You can use parts of a description or the whole thing. I do requests as well if you can't find what you're looking for. The only thing that I ask is that you leave a link to your book in the comments so I can check it out because I'm vain like that and like to see my work help others :)


8. Long Nails

I was admiring a pair of pearl earrings at one of the stalls n the vintage fair when the old man approached me. He had been manning the stall that I was exploring, although he was so dirty that I had not noticed him. He asked me in a voice that seemed too old for this world if there was anything that I liked. I gestured to the earrings and asked how much they were. He held out a hand to examine them further.

His hand was as dirty as the rest of him and wrinkles marred his skin, causing the back of his hand to appear as a map of a far off land. Sun spots discoloured his wrist and thumb in a dappled shade of mud. But the most striking thing about these hands that had seen so many years were the nails. They were long and sharp, almost filed to a point. There was no grime under them as the rest of his body might have indicated however the were discoloured and yellow. I felt like this man, and his hands with the striking nails, did not belong in this age nor even in this universe. 

I did not buy the earrings. I walked out of the tent, but just before the flap closed I turned and looked back to where the man should have been. He had vanished into thin air, like a breath of wind into the night.
