Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC’s Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn’t have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my page. Just do the following:
• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fit’s in the week’s topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don’t include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their’s throughout the week as well
This Weeks Theme Law Enforcement
This is a great topic this week. I was going to pick Butch from BDB but I think I have done them before, so now I am going to pick a character from my other fave series, Anita Blake There is alot of law enforcement sidekicks for Anita Blake but my favorite is Edward/Ted.
Edward is a bounty hunter for shifters and Vampires his nickname is Death. he is a true Psychopath that is trying to have a normal life as Ted who is a friendly southern gentleman and U.S Marshall and then there is Edward his evil side, who is a deadly Assassin. I love how he loves Anita as a Friend and will do anything to save her, but he is also looking forward to the day that he goes against her and kills her. It makes for a dynamic relationship.

Did you take it?”
Would I be calling you if I had?”
Maybe,” I said. He laughed.
True, but I’m not going to take it.”
Try again,” I said.
I figure I’ll get to kill more people guarding you. If I take the contract, I only get to kill you.”

“You’re enjoying this, aren’t you?”
I’d feel better if I could guard your back.”
You’re going to do that with a rifle from the closest hill, remember.”
Night vision and scope, fine, but I can’t kill them all from a distance.”
You couldn’t kill them all if you were johnny on the spot, either,” I said.
No but I’d feel better.”
Worried about me?” He shrugged.
I’m your bodyguard. If you die under my protection, the other bodyguards will make fun of me.” It took me a second to realize he was making a joke. Harley looked back at him with an almost surprised look. I don’t think either of us heard humor from Edward much.”
