differently by exploring the themes of friendship, trust and tolerance, the use of propaganda and the for Fiyero despite his relationship with Glinda.

Rawlins' work on friendship to the relationship between Elphaba and G(a)linda, .. knows that Galinda trusts her, and exploring a relationship with Fiyero would.
She is left haunted by a sense of guilt and failure that eventually drives her to seek out Fiyero's widow and children in the isolated Vinkus castle, Kiamo Ko. Before her accidental death by Dorothy she, going insane from insomnia and paranoia, begins to think that Fiyero might not have died, but rather was alive in disguise as the Scarecrow. Getting excited thinking that he was headed her way, she eagerly sent out many of her "workers" to pull off the face of the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz to reveal Fiyero.
But when they do he is revealed to be made of nothing but straw. Fiyero's lineage survives in Liir, and Liir's daughter, Rain. Book to Musical Differences Jorge Lau as Fiyero with Ana Cecilia Anzaldua as Elphaba in Wicked Mexico In the musical, the character has no tattoos simply because the small designs did not translate well to the stage and never married, but he is engaged rather reluctantly to Glinda.
He is at first a careless, happy-go-lucky, kid who cares little about school and is involved in a romantic relationship with G a linda Upland where he has no romantic feelings for her in the book, even though Sarima suspected that he was having a love affair with Galinda. Most of his happy-go-lucky attitude was originally part of Avaric's personality. However, when he meets Elphaba, he begins to understand that there is more to life than having fun and never thinking where in the book, he has little interaction with Elphaba at Shiz.
With this discovery, he realizes his true feelings for Elphaba, and saves her from the Wizard's Gaurds. He is held hostage and tortured offstage. Fiyero is then transformed unwittingly into the Scarecrow by Elphaba even though he was killed by the Gale Force in the novel. He helps Elphaba stage her death and runs away with her out of Oz to start a new life, where they both die in the book though in the end Elphaba's death is questionable.
Fiyero is the vehicle that makes a successful conclusion of the musical possible by helping Elphaba escape from Oz that isn't present in the book. In the musical Fiyero does not officially die.
The blue diamond facial tattoos Fiyero has in the novel aren't actually tattoos. Avaric mentions that it's paint  and when Fiyero first discovers Elphaba's scar, he originally thought that his diamonds had rubbed off onto her skin.
There was an odd shadow near the groin-for a sleepy moment he wondered if some of his blue diamonds had, in the heat of sex, been steamed onto her own skin-or was it a scar? He peered, squinted, to make sure he was getting it right. It was certainly big enough, probably the size of a small Munchkinland home, even if it was not one of the largest rooms in the Emerald Palace.
Almost everything in the room was a stunning shade of emerald green, which was gorgeous at first but grew a bit boring to look at after a while.
The only other color in the room was pink, which seemed to dominate ever piece of Glinda's furniture in the form of small ribbons or trinkets. He'd allowed her to redecorate without any sort of opposition, though it was his personal opinion that the pink and green clashed a bit. Fiyero suddenly let out a very loud yawn and stretched rather dramatically, practically bending himself over backwards.
Glinda was a bit more ladylike. She stepped out of bed slowly, smoothing the covers out behind her, then gave another short yawn, her dainty fingers flying up to cover her mouth, before stepping into the bathroom and shutting the door behind her. Fiyero shook his head slightly as he watched her, smiling good naturedly. Glinda was nothing if not a society girl, and that was part of the reason she was so popular among the Ozians. Fiyero was not sure exactly what her position entailed, but it seemed like she was there to raise the Ozians' spirits in a time of such turmoil.
It was an admirable task in his opinion. Finally tearing his eyes from the bathroom door, he sighed reluctantly and moved toward his closet to prepare himself for his own job. The Wizard apparently had a lead on the whereabouts of the Witch, and he wanted Fiyero to organize a group and begin searching immediately. Fiyero, of course, obeyed readily, but always felt the same sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach.

The Witch was excellent at evasion, but she couldn't run forever. What happened when he and his men suddenly found themselves face to face with the evil woman? What was their plan? Would they be able to successfully capture her or would she kill them all before they could get within ten feet of her?
Fiyero tried to push these unpleasant thoughts from his mind as he began to pull on the emerald green pants of his Gale Force uniform. This was the sort of thing he worried about each and every day, though he never mentioned it to anyone. Even the other guards didn't seem quite as frightened as he did.
They chased after the Witch with a sort of feverish determination, always wanted to go the extra mile or search the extra cave. Fiyero wondered why he was the only one who had a deathly fear of the Witch.
Even Glinda didn't seem to have the same reaction to the woman as he did. Then again, Glinda's reaction to anything related to the Witch was anything but normal. In most cases a person's eyes either blazed with fury or widened in fear at the mention of the vile woman, but Glinda was another story altogether.
Instead of either of these reactions, her eyes seemed briefly to fill with great sadness, before she turned away and attempted to change the subject. No one else seemed to notice this, but Fiyero had picked up on the pattern after living with her for a few months. However, he'd never questioned her on this, for he assumed the reaction stemmed, as did everything else with Glinda, from that long ago incident in the Emerald City. Glinda exited the bathroom about five minutes later, just as Fiyero was buttoning his green and gold blazer.
He marveled at the fact that Glinda could look as though she'd been primping for hours with only ten minutes in front of a mirror.
He moved toward her as she began shifting through some dresses in her closet, and she jumped as one of his arms moved around her waist. Fiyero dearest, you scared me," she squealed, flashing him one of her one hundred watt smiles.
He couldn't help but grin back as he leaned in and placed a kiss on her lips, one that she returned eagerly. When they finally pulled away, Glinda asked, "Why are you in uniform so early in the morning?

He apparently has a lead on the Witch's whereabouts and wants us to find her before she has a chance to get moving again," he replied, trying to keep the uncertainty out of his voice. As predicted, Glinda looked a bit put off by the news, but immediately tried to hide it as she said, "Oh well, safe travels.
Now, I really must pick out a dress. Which of these do you like better? After a quick mental game of eeny miny mo, he finally pointed to a blue dress and Glinda smiled gaily as she disappeared back into the bathroom to put it on. Fiyero smiled one last time, before he remembered the task at hand and turned to leave the room.
He had to wake his men, and once they were all dressed and ready they would report to the Wizard's chamber for further instruction. Fiyero sighed, for he knew the next few days were not going to be easy. If his luck held, this venture would be the same as the last ones. He and his troops would follow one of the Wizard's leads, search for a few days, and then return home empty handed.
He could only pray that every mission turned out the same way for the rest of his life. Still, he shouldn't be complaining. His life was not exactly terrible. Considering the fact that he'd practically flunked out of college, he should be more than grateful to have been offered such a prestigious position. Really the only problem he had was the fact that he had to go off on these searches every couple of months.
Yes, everything in his life would be perfect if it wasn't for that damnable Wicked Witch of the West. End of first chapter.
I know it was completely uneventful, but its point was basically to show Fiyero's view of Elphaba, his relationship with Glinda, and basically just where his life is at this point. I think I just realized how much I hate writing expositions. You have to cram everything in there, but it still has to have some sort of flow between paragraphs. I've also realized that I seem to start a lot of my stories with a character in bed.
