We’re thrilled to be talking to Nolan Troxler from Thorn Osgood's, The Reclamation. It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!
Thank you for your interview, Nolan. How old are you and what do you do for a living?
No problem, thank you for asking me. I'm fifty-nine and a web designer by trade, but I also have invented information and telecommunications products that are completely safe for users and the environment.
Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?
Over the years I have continued to wear my hair shoulder length with a stubble beard. Of course now,
What is the trait you most not like about yourself?
Embarrassing as it is to admit, I am completely absorbed with my work and have too often procrastinated on taking appropriate actions when required.
What would I hate the most about you?
You would probably hate the fact that I remained absent from my daughter, Corilan's life, while she was growing up and did not see or talk to her for more than twenty years.
Where do you go when you are angry?
When I am angry, I retreat to my home and absorb myself in my work and commune with my ancestral guide.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Nothing in recent memory brings laughter to mind. These days, I'm too concerned about staying alive and trying to provide security for others being threatened for their decision to become Earth guardians.
What is in your refrigerator right now?
I tend to focus mostly on lunch foods, so I know there are a few tomatoes and salad greens in the fridge. For other items, you'd have to check with my housekeeper, Martha, who maintains the food supply.
What is your most treasured possession?
My most treasured possession is my home which has been in the family for three generations. Because of its size, I can venture into the world of invention in private with easy access to my laboratory.
What is your greatest fear?
Since I have already lost one of my best friends to foul play, I worry constantly about my daughter's safety and that of our organizational members and those that join with us in Earth conservation.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes, I believe so. The positives, extremes and, sad to say, the negatives are all there.

Finally, she decides to see him and despite the friction over his absence, from that meeting her life evolves.

Then, she joins the SAG organization. From her infusion, she soon discovers abilities, among them lightning bolt generation, mind reading and control.
Armed with powerful abilities and her ancestral guide, Corilan must take an unexpected path. Then she discovers who her real enemies are and must find a way to defeat them.
