Compelling non-human characters have been part of storytelling, whether as allies or adversaries, protagonists or part of the scenery, since the tradition began. Sayantani DasGupta (The Serpent's Secret) leads Jon Hollins (The Dragon Lords), Kristen Ciccarelli (The Last Namsara), Tui Sutherland (Darkness of Dragons: Wings of Fire), Tochi Onyebuchi (Beasts Made of Night), and Jodi Meadows (Before She Ignites)in a discussion of the charms and challenges of creating these characters.
