This one was a hard one to figure out. To me, it was the kind of character that you “feel” but don’t quite see. I wanted him to be a dominant jerk, power-hungry, somewhat insecure, selfish, mean enough to be a heartless sadist, but also with a weakness… his submission to Rolan. A man he loves in his own messed up way. I thought of it for quite a while before materializing him in my mind and in my story and, in the end, I decided on Agent Hotchner, the FBI agent we all know from Criminal Minds. Mostly serious, bad-ass and with a clear weakness for his partners and son. After that, Morgan was easy to imagine.
