Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.
Yan the bouncer is actually based on a bouncer in Nelson years ago. He was a large man, a bouff head – he liked to use his fists to deal with situations, weather they warranted it or not! He was a boxer and used to like to practice on drunk patron’s that were a little lippy. This particular man would sometime take a liking to a girl, and would pick on the boyfriend. Why I don’t know, but he did – that’s how much of an idiot this guy was. He was built ‘like a brick shit house’ which means he was solid and large. And probably full of shit as well. Yan is someone who is watchful and protective of his regular customers, so he is wary when someone turns up unexpectedly.
