Original Character Challenge by Enthusiastic Fish
Summary:

*Issued by K9Lasko*

The "Original Character" Challenge


Creating compelling characters is an important -- and often difficult -- aspect of writing. Your challenge is to bring an original character to life within an NFA story.

The character...
... must play a main role throughout the story, but does not need to be the only main character.
... can be either a protagonist or an antagonist, or a little bit of both.
... may be involved with canon NCIS characters in any way you choose (e.g. somebody's significant other, coworker, family member), or they may be distant from canon characters (e.g. witness, suspect, guy on the street).

Be creative!

Judging will primarily be based on the quality of your original character-- and supplemented by the quality of the surrounding story and character interactions.

Summary:

This is my entry for the Original Character challenge. I'm using an OC of mine by the name of Father Charles, a Catholic priest. It's the third story he's shown up in. The first two, On That Night and A Fire into Many Flames Divided, introduce the character. Tim showed up in Father Charles' church in On That Night after a car accident, and their friendship is further developed in A Fire into Many Flames Divided. This one takes place on Halloween night and into All Saints Day.

It's a two-shot.
