    I sorta picture her as the type of little girl who would pull the heads off kittens just for sh!ts and giggles. Evil to the core.

    Hope this link works. IMDB is weird.

    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    How do you imagine her as a young girl?
    Tough call...probably abused by her father, a child done wrong, maybe a plaything for the rich and famous of one of the other cities of Mid-World.

    Was she pretty and beautiful?
    Yeah, drop dead gorgeous, she could make a dead man come, as the song goes.

    Was she ever good-hearted?
    She did love her snake, Ermot, so she was capable of one of the saving graces.

    Was she in love?
    Other than with Ermot, you mean. Hard to imagine, but anything's possible.

    When and why did she choose the "bad side"? Was it a decision in her life or did it just happen? Still reading, but I'm hoping to come across the word, "bewildered". Cordelia at one point kinda wakes up, as if in a trance. That old baddy, the Crimson King, I bet. I think she watched too much television, too many Friends re-runs, and she just snapped, went over to the dark side, began enjoying it, really tuning in, and tuning out any sort of predestination in store for her...or maybe not...maybe her destiny was to be the witch of Coos...Frost, by the way, has a great poem called just that, "the witch of Coos"...the bones...something about a finger bone...would make a great one act play for the high school set.

    Finished the read and no "bewildered" for Rhea, but there was something about her handling men like those (coffin hunters, I think) before, kinda like Detta...so, yeah, she had her charms even as a blooming witch.

    That's sure.
    I would be interested in her age. Was it mentioned in W&G? How old could she be?

    Roland would have understood.

    I had pictured her sort of as a silent film star in her later years. After she had gone insane and lost toutch with reality. Vainly attempting to look attractive in her dilusional eyes. A true face of decay and madness, hair dingy grey, spindley and everywhere. Body frail and hunched over. long spindley fingers.......
    Yet still wearing her same jewelrey and clothes that she wore in former, happier times........

    Could she have loved? Possiably, who knows, maybe that is how she became corrupted with the dark arts?

    Sounds like the makeings of another book onto itself.........

    still can not spell, stupid work computer.......

    In Chapter VII, Taking the Ball, section 11, Rhea's opinion of men is illustrated, the coffin hunters lined up across from her..."They were men, that was all, just more men, and she had been beating such all her life. Oh, they thought they ruled the roost, all right--nobody in Mid-World accused anyone of forgetting the face of his mother--but they were poor things, at bottom, moved to tears by a sad song, utterly undone by the sight of a bare breast, and all the more capable of being manipulated simply because they were so sure they were strong and tough and wise."

    Jonas calls her "old mother". Hoot. Women are timeless, aren't they, of no age but their own? I've revised my opinion that she was done wrong as a child. I think she knew how to manipulate people from a young age.

    As a young girl I see her as plain, dowdy, awkward and shy. When puberty came the men did not. She was bookish, and found magic in those books. Magic made her strong. Magic gave her power and self esteem. Thus she pursued magic that could manipulate others. Somewhere along the way she moved from self serving to downright evil. Once there there was no going back.

    There is always going back. But of course I get what you mean.
    It's interesting how most of us imagine her as a shy young girl. So do I. I think she must have been in love and got failed. People this evil and selfish usually have a failed love in their history.

    Roland would have understood.

    pretty much. & i still think it's funny as hell how the actress who played the witch well the evil one anyways was a kindergarden teacher before she started to act. which is just funny cause i used to have nightmares after watching "The wizard of oz" as a kid.
