Charming, handsome and debonair. That is how many view Sauren Nightflame, leader of the elite Rogues Guild The Crimson Blade. But, beneath the polished exterior, a dark side lurks.

Sauren is an interesting character indeed. Though- one nit pick- you refer to his blonde hair like so much! It gets old really fast, after once or twice, you're beating a dead horse lol! We know his hair is blonde hahaha!
Besides that, I'm just ever so curious about Sauren, his eloquent speech and politeness is certainly something to watch out for.
I can understand his admiration of the Fireflurys, though ouch- what a nasty subtle stab at Brett. I'm glad to see his relationship with Don is still strong. This list they're working on can't be any good for his bullies, perhaps this is the glimpse Don got in the prolouge. Especially if his father's business deals with assassins and rouges! You'd think you wouldn't mess with a family so powerful lol. Great work.

Thank you for pointing out about the hair actually. I confess it slipped by me (obviously), though it would suggest I have a fixation about it lol.

Yes, his rather brutal dig at Brett shows an underlying flaw in his character and it is only one of many, as you will see. Yet, as with tipping of the scales, he has certain redeeming qualities which keep him balanced.

Bullies, as a rule, do not seem to care about one's connections, their loathsome prejudices blind them to the potential consequences I think.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for your feedback. It helps me see important things, however small, which I have done well, or not as the case may be, perhaps missed or simply went completely off course lol. It all goes to (hopefully) helping me improve.

Some strong character building going on here.
the dialogue flows naturally.
our young protagonist's, aspirations are soaring.
all in all, I liked this second chapter and has wetted my appetite to read on.

Thank you. It is a work in progress, I still have quite a way to go with Sauren, and it will be written in due course.
