"The Hope of Hattie Phelan"

Walter “Wally” Rickman | tHoHP Character Sheet

Hello, fellow campaigners of the writing world! Here I am this week with an exciting announcement of sharing with you my favorite character ever (not really but he is so precious). Walter James Rickman is the man. Haha, joking aside, I hope you enjoy today’s post.

WARNING: This character sheet is SPOILER FREE. Think of it as how the character sheet is before the start of the book. This is for potential readers to get an idea of what the character is like, not for book accuracy.

Name: Walter James “Wally” Rickman
DOB/Age: March 2nd, 1869 (17)
POB: Tuckerton, Iowa
Residency: Rickman Homestead (1869-)
Backstory: Walter grew up in Tuckerton, Iowa knowing nothing besides farming with her father and older brothers. But as time goes on, his older brothers, Levi (27) and Henry Jr. (25), move away to start their own lives with their wives. Wally, from a young age, picked up a larger load for work because his older brother, Nathan (18), was lazy. Before the start of the book, Kenneth (20), proposes to the girl he was courting, Pearl, leaving all the work to Walter since his 2-year-old brother cannot help.

It’s not super long, but that’s all I can say. I don’t want to give away too much regarding Wally. He is a complicated character.

Thank you guys for reading! Do you have a favorite type of character?

Salutations, fellow adventurers!
