Q&A With Thomas Locke: Is ‘Emissary’ a David vs. Goliath Story?

Is Emissary a David vs. Goliath storyQ: The leader of the enemy’s army thinks Hyam is insignificant. Is this a David vs. Goliath story? Frodo vs. Sauron?

Thomas Locke: I wanted Emissary to have that “everyman” feeling. Instead of building muscles or learning battle techniques or studying hard or raising himself up by his bootstraps, Hyam is someone who happens to have a gift, and he uses that gift to become a strong wizard. As a result of accepting his higher calling, he fails in some areas of his life and succeeds in others.
