I’ve introduced you to both our protagonist, August Von Herling, and our antagonist, Vlad Magnus. Now it’s time to meet our deuteragonist, the lovely waif Peggy Jo Warner.
Peggy Jo Warner is essentially the equivalent of Mina Harker from Bram Stoker’s Dracula. She’s a young lady of fourteen (two years younger than Von Herling) who has lived all her life in Richten, Tennessee. She’s best friends with Brittany Mary Parsons, the most popular girl in school (we’ll meet her in a future post).
She’s very shy and silent, yet can be incredibly resilient to everyone’s surprise.
