Character Spotlight: Morpheus


So this week I picked a character that I have wanted to write about since the moment I finished the book, but I had to wait because I read an ARC. Now it is about a month after the books release and I simply cannot wait any longer to squee about this character. Without further adieu, this week’s spotlight is on Morpheus from Splintered by A.G. Howard. 

Morpheus stole my heart the moment he appeared in Splintered. Morpheus wears leather pants, a top hat, has wings, blue hair, and awesome masquerade markings around his eyes. I really never stood a chance against his charms. He is just darkly charming with a dark sense of humor to match. He is incredibly witty and he always has a response ready. He is also manipulative and it is tough to gauge his intentions. He is danger, manipulation, chaos, and madness. He is a true product of Wonderland. Honestly he describes himself best with this quote: “Mysterious. Rebellious. Troubled. All those qualities women find irresistible.”

Aside from his mad personality, I love Morpheus because he doesn’t doubt Alyssa. He knows that she is strong and he knows that she can handle herself. He may have his own purposes when it comes to her, but he also knows that whatever gets thrown at her she can handle it. He doesn’t spend time trying to protect her and keep her out of trouble because she is strong enough on her own. However, at the same time he is willing to die for her just to keep her safe. I always appreciate when a guy knows just how strong the girl truly is and Morpheus knows how strong Alyssa is. 

Morpheus is the kind of character that is not good but you just love all the same. In all honesty, there is a good guy underneath all of his crazy. He is the perfect example of a bad boy you cannot resist!

Favorite Morpheus Quotes:
“Raising one hand, he tilts his hat to that sexy slant. "You want me. Admit it."
Even if he's partly right, I'll never tell him. "Why would I want you?"
He lifts thee fingers to countdown. "Mysterious. Rebellious. Troubled. All those qualities women find irresistible."
"Such an optimist."
"My cup is never empty."
"Too bad your brain is." The words bite, but my smile softens with affection.” 

“I vow on my life-magic not to send away or harm your precious boyfriend as long as he’s loyal to you and your worthy cause. Although I reserve the right to antagonize him at every given opportunity.” 

“I hate you," I say, the sentiment muffled against his heart, hoping to make it true.
"And I love you," he answers without hesitation, voice resolved and raw as he holds me tighter so I can't break away and react. "A crossroads, my beautiful princess, that was unavoidable—given our situations.”
