Bran's Relationship with his Children
« on: September 04, 2009, 08:39:37 am »
Its mentioned several times that Bran "made" Charles the pack's assassin.  Does that mean he was trained? Perhaps by Bran? What I would like to see is what life was like for Charles as he was establishing himself as a dominant wolf...also as his father's hit man.

And just who trained him how to be so lethal? bOuNcY

Any thoughts?

I just finished Hunting Ground, and it's phenomenal.

I couldn't help but reply on this one.  Through hunting ground it shows that Charles really does CARE about people.  He doesn't LIKE his job he's just good at it.  When it says his father turned him into the assassin that they needed I think Charles probably was naturally good at fighting, being that boys (sorry if it sounds sexist) typically love to fight and wrestle especially when they are growing up, and his father recognized that he had a natural ability for fighting was very dominate (says that dominates are dominate from birth in cw) and that he needed someone who he can trust to go out and take care of the "messes".  Bran being Charles Alpha and father would merely need to ask him to take that job.  Charles did mention he had taken lots of martial arts classes.  I think it was hard on Charles, he cares about people and doesn't like killing, but because he cares i think he is more able to do his job since he cares about ALL of the wolves.  Would be nice to know what he meant by when he said unlike him his brother was unable to see things as black and white as he did, and that samual never had to accept things that way in cw.

Poor Charles. Yes.  Someone needed to be the hit man and for various reasons it couldn't be Bran himself and Samuel is spectacularly unsuited for the job.  I am sure we'll all find out a lot more about Charles in further books  bOuNcY bOuNcY bOuNcY

Thanks, Patty!  It is very nice that Charles and Anna have their own series, because their stories are so different from Mercy and Adam.
Find what you love and do it!

Ok, random aside, but I was thinking about Charles' cutting himself off from people and trying not to show emotions around them in case he has to kill them later....and then the Lady GaGa? song about "can't read my poker face" jumped into my head.  Anyone else want to make that Charles' theme song?   LOL >D

Please ... no. I really hate that song. I imagine Charles having more class than that and I don't think that songs portrays enough depth. Charles is a force of nature!

Umm, I'd rather not have that as his theme song. For some reason I get annoyed by it.

Hmmm, I must need new glasses. I thought the title of this thread was "Charles", not "Soundtrack". ???

I'm suddenly curious how Charles reacted to his first sight of an auto, when they were still all "one off".

Well since he was raised with Indians as well as Bran and Samuel I would say that he would have the same response in either form.  Sneak up behind it, sniff at it, poke it and run to cover, come back and confront it teeth/weapons, bared/out!
