Quote that really fits this character's personality:
After the last Cadet vanished, a fat middle-aged man squeezed through the doorway. [...] The man puffed, either from indignation or else from the exertion of hauling his own body weight, and opened the top clasp of his shirt collar.
Nothing had changed in seven years. Palan's dark, intelligent gaze still tirelessly weighted everything it touched, making Savoy feel as if he held fire beside straw.Good Quality: Very loyal to his family
Vice: Very loyal to his family

Alex Lidell is a YA fantasy writer and author of ABNA Finalist THE CADET OF TILDOR (Penguin, 2013).
Although English is Alex’s primary language, it wasn’t her first. Coming from Russia, Alex learned English in elementary school and fell in love with reading when the school librarian put Tamora Pierce’s ALANNA into her hands. Years later, in college, it was another book that re-united Alex with Russian, which she had shunned in adolescence. The Three Musketeers. Alex thanks both books, and the writers who created them.
Beyond writing, Alex is also a photographer, a horseback rider, and a paramedic. The latter two go hand in hand more often than one would like. She is trying to self-teach herself and her horse to sword-fight.
Alex would love to see THE CADET OF TILDOR in the classroom and is working on developing teacher guides for the novel. She enjoys “e-meeting” both students and educators.
