Before the action comes home, I need to open with a chapter that sets the scene and introduces the main POV character.
Currently the prologue is set to follow a secondary character, who meets the main conflict and brings it back with him when he meets up with the main character in Chapter 2.
That leaves me with a chapter before we hit the action, and I figure I'd ask for your input while I'm still trying to figure out who some of these characters are.
The main character is at a place in life where he's getting ready to settle down. He's in a relationship, but as he's going to be drawn into the conflict, he has to weigh how much he wants to settle down against the call to action.
The girl will be able to hold her own, but she's untested. I don't know if they'll end up together or not, but I need something to start that chain.
