Coliere: Reflections by Jena Baxter

We’re thrilled to be talking to Colovere, from Jena Baxter’s, Reflections. It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Colovere. Can you tell us your story?

I’m a unicorn and King. My brother Petaire, is watching over my kingdom now. My mate was missing, and the Witch, Zylphia, promised to take me to her. When I entered the portal to the fantasy world, I knew I’d been deceived, but Zylphia threatened to kill Ophelia if I didn’t stay. My most loyal subjects have stayed with me, and we spend a good deal of time frolicking in the meadow.

Sometimes Juliette and I harvest apples together. She climbs on my back to reach what I can’t. She’s a clumsy girl though, and blames me when she falls. I eventually come to the conclusion, my mate is dead, but stay for fear of what might happen if I leave.


Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?

I have a black horn with a golden spiral because I’m royalty, and my mane and tail are black.


What would I love the most about you?

I’m always there to keep things in perspective.


Where do you go when you are angry?

I have a clearing in the middle of the forest. I rarely take anyone there.


What is your most treasured possession?

My mate’s horn.


What is your greatest fear?

The earth shakes when the mirror is moved. My entire herd trembles.


Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

She did on most days, but I think I fought far more valiantly toward the end. I complained of course, but Jena wouldn’t change it.


What is your idea of a perfect day?

Good friends, races in the meadow, and tasty apples.


Who is your best friend?

Juliette of course; she and I are much the same. She has no mate and right now I’m alone too. I have my herd but it isn’t the same thing, and what unicorn can resist a pure girl?


What is your favorite weather?

Sings – Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy. Sunshine, in my eyes can make me cry.
