“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belongs to no man and to no city. She knows nothing of borders and invents her own rules and customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”
― Roman Payne
When we read this quote, our minds immediately thought of Claire Fraser. Although a fictional character, she is brought to life by the level of emotional depth that rivals reality. It is rare to feel that level of connection. The ability to directly identify to the emotions experienced during moments of success or life’s trials is perhaps what cements the bond to the Outlander series. That is the true power of this series – the story becomes personal. We can relate to each character in some form and become emotionally vested. In our case, it led to re-reading the series again to recapture details that we may have missed and relive the joy of following this timeless story. Voyager will bring trials, adventures, and affirm relationships. A new beginning that can only take place with the introduction of new characters.
New casting only adds to our enthusiasm, making our anticipation for Season 3 even stronger! In this blog we will explore the newest roles being brought to life this season, our interpretation of their character descriptions based on the book series, and most of all, what we look forward to in the future. Perhaps, you may even be interested in the trivia at the end of the blog to test your own Outlander knowledge. ♥
Before reading on, please be aware: new characters are being discussed, so if you don’t want any chance of spoilers, heed with caution….
