Delilah is a drummer who is the primary antagonist of the short story I am writing. She has a volatile relationship with an illegal immigrant, Anton. In addition she has a running affair with a pianist from a local club. She has a fling going on with a curator as well. This is already a significant complexity to a character. Gloria is the protagonist who wants Delilah to work on their music. Gloria is the guitarist and the vocal lead. They have a third member Ursula who is the other guitarist and also the song writer. The last song writer killed herself. The narrative starts with a steamy sexual conflict between Delilah and Anton after which Delilah wants to go out in the city but Gloria tells her she has to work on the beats for their album. Delilah dominates Gloria despite being at fault and Gloria ends up resenting her. The conflict ruins her creative space. This has been going on for some time and bit by bit Delilah has pushed Gloria to destructiveness. Across the narrative, Delilah is always seeking to live a little more, a little extra. According to her, life brings inspiration to her. If someone has seen the recent movie Cold War, this character is similar to how Irena behaved in the bar where she danced with many men. In her personal history, her father oppressed her mother severely. She is unwilling to fall in love. I don't think her past would find mention in the story though. I don't want anyone to sympathize with her. She is a beautiful force of nature. She has totally subdued the protagonist Gloria. How do I characterize Delilah? Ideas? One thing is her fetish for clothes. I am researching into that. What else? The time is 1972 and the place is New York.
