Allow me to introduce my character, Abidan, the Prince of Benjamin!
At the beginning of the story, Abidan starts off as kind of a know-it-all and a snob, but he’s also a philanthropist so he does have some redeeming qualities. Through the development of his story, he learns humility and becomes a bit of a philosopher..
In the book Prince of Israel Series on Kindle Vella, he starts off arriving to the Tribute Festival a day early so he can help distribute grant funding to applicants for an endowment he started privately. He thinks he needs to prove he knows everything but what he really needs is to be humbled. Until he sees Mira, the prophet’s daughter and suddenly can’t remember his own name. Being a proud Benjamite, he never wanted to marry a Levite and yet here he is fumbling over his words and making a complete fool of himself in front of the most beautiful woman he’s ever met, who happens to be a Levite.
A little more about Abidan: he is 25 years old and the oldest prince at the festival. He lives in the modern-day city of Ramallah, West Bank, Palestine.
Abidan is an enemy to everyone except Nahshon (Shon), Prince of Judah, who is his mentor. They hang out briefly with Shelumiel, Prince of Simeon, but mainly because they’re close in age.
