Hello Adonis. Welcome to my interviewing show! Today I will ask you some questions. I do hope you don’t mind answering them!

 

  1. Tell me a little about yourself. Is there anything you dislike? What is the land like where you were born?

Hello, Joss! Thank you so much for thinking of Vale and me! To respond to your first question: yes, I suppose there is. I do not like when the weather gets too hot—I do not handle the heat well at all! I also really dislike ants. They are fine at a distance, but I have awoken one too many times covered in ants when we have had to camp for the evening!

As to your second question, to be honest, I do not remember much. It was cool… misty… quiet. I remember the sound of the waves lapping against the stones on the coast and the cry of seagulls overhead… But otherwise, most of it has faded away.

  1. How exactly did you and Vale meet each other? I know you have a lot of affection for him.

(smiles*) I was a slave on a smuggling vessel. A sex slave to the human scum, more than anything else. At that time, Saebellus and Vale were still a part of Elvorium’s military and part of their responsibility was keeping the waters clean. Our ship was attacked by them during one of their raids. Most of my captors were killed and I was freed. Vale went a step further to take me under wing and help me get back on my feet. I guess… it was love at first sight. I know it sounds strange with regards to Vale, but he was very polite and respectful around me. Yet I saw that fiery side of him. I was smitten. (laughs*)

  1. How is your relationship with Saebellus? I know you admire him, but let’s be honest, is there anything else under that?

(laughs*) Are you talking about romantic feelings? No, no. Nothing like that. I admire Saebellus greatly. He is just, honorable, kind… I believe he posses all the qualities to be an excellent king. And I owe him my freedom and my happiness. He’s like a brother to me. I know Vale feels the same way about him.

  1. What do you think of Vale flirting manners? I mean, you have a kind of relationship with him. Does it bothers you that he keeps flirting with others? Will that be a breaking point for you with what you have with him?

Oh, never. Vales flirting is… comical sometimes. And yes, other times I do get mad. I suppose that’s more frequently the case. But I know he would do anything for me. I know it is just an ego boost to him at times, and at others, it’s just… him. It makes him feel strong. In control. Wanted. My response of jealousy is exactly what Vale needs. Vale’s spent most of his life being rejected by the world. So if he wants to act like a silly little flirt for ego or fun or entertainment, I say why not? I know if it came down to anything in the world and me, I would always be his first choice.

  1. If you could change anything in your life at all, what would you change?

I am grateful for everything I have. I think I would be ungrateful to desire to change anything. I suppose I would wish that Vale could find reconciliation with our brethren. He has so much rage in him.

  1. What are your thoughts for the future?—do you think the war will end soon?

I hope so. I think if anyone can end the war, it is Saebel. He may be deviating from his original plan, but he will find his way back.

  1. Let me ask, because I need to know: that magic you do is awesome! Is it something you learned with time, or is it something innate in you?

Innate. After Vale returned me to Sevrigel, he hired a private tutor to give me the education I never received. It was my teacher who honed in my skills of magic. I was told what I can do is unique. Unheard of. I spent my whole life wishing I was somewhere else… I suppose what I often considered my curse to bear has also become my strength.

  1. Any thoughts for the future of Sevrigel and Ryekarayn?

I look forward to the time our country finds peace and prosperity, and all the creatures of the land are treated with respect. Maybe then we will finally be ready to create a genuine alliance with Ryekarayn.

 

Thanks so much for coming Adonis. I must say I do enjoy your company. You’re so polite. You look like a prince… maybe you should reign instead of Saebellus.

(laughs*) Oh Sel’ari, not me! I am here to help great elves become greater. You are too sweet!

Character Interview: Vale

Estándar

Today I bring you a character interview for book ” on the Steps of Power series, Heroes or Thieves, Vale here is a captain to Saebellus service and antagonist to Navon.

separadores (15)

Hello there Vale. Welcome to my grilling—I mean my interview show. I wanted to ask you some questions, so here they are:

 

  1. Tell me a little about yourself. Where do you come from and what things you like, etc?

About me? Keh. It’s not some grand and exciting tale, I’ll warn you on that now. I grew up in that arrogant town of assholes they call Mistarel. My bitch of a mother and bastard of a father were as wealthy as a whore in a den of lords. But I never really fit their expectations. You know, quiet, prudent… with my free time spent plucking some god-damn lute. Lyre. Whatever the fuck it’s called. Anyways, I spent most of my time socially with those who had already shat the stick out of their asses. My parents didn’t like that, so before their social reputation could be harmed farther by my “debauchery,” we moved to Elvorium. They thrust me into the finest schools and military academies in hopes of “fixing” me. But I guess I didn’t learn to accept genocide like a good son. They disowned me after I joined up with Saebellus so… two victories were won that night.

  1. How exactly did you and Adonis met each other? I know you have a lot of respect for him.

Eh. That’s not really my details to share. Short hand of the matter is that we pulled him from a ship full of jackasses and he’s been with me since.

  1. You seem a little rebellious sometimes even with Saebellus, it has anything to do with familiarity or more with your upbringing?

My father would have struck me senseless if I had talked that way to him. No. Familiarity would be why I can address Saebel the way I do. I respect the male greatly—one of the best damn elves that Aersadore will ever see. He deserves respect. But I don’t think respect always has to be served with a severed tongue.

  1. I wanted to know this as well: you seem to be a little bit of a playboy. Doesn’t it upset Adonis? I mean, I heard you were in a kind of relationship with him, right?

That is correct. Adonis is mine and I am his. But just because you because you both own something doesn’t mean you can’t let your friends borrow it, right? (winks*) But you want to know if I fuck around against Adonis’ permission, right? Never. But a little flirting with another tight ass isn’t going to kill him.

  1. Be honest Vale, do you really hate Alvena? Or it’s more jealousy because Adonis is so nice to her?

Keh. Jealousy? Try irritated. I have enough on my plate trying to keep hold of a god-damn kingdom without babysitting some tiny little sniffling welp. I’m a captain. It’s a degradation of my station to put me on diaper duty.

  1. If you could change anything in your life at all, what would you change?

My life? Easy. That every fucking elf I meet doesn’t purse his god-damn lips and step sideways to avoid brushing shoulders.

  1. What are your thoughts for the future, do you think the war will end soon?

Eh. That’s hard to call. I would like the war to end soon, but we rarely get what we want. I think as long as Saebellus is following Ilsevel’s plan, we’re never going to find peace.

  1. Lastly how did you know Darcarus?

When I was in Elvorium, I went to the same military academies as he did. Since he doesn’t quite fit the “princely standard” his father demands of him, we share some common ground. He’s got a colorful tongue and a desire for fun. So basically that makes him the spawn of Ramul. But he’s a good male—stands up for his ideology even when the world pushes back on him. I can respect that. Plus, he’s a fucking excellent drinking partner.

 

That will be all; I hope you had a lot of fun like me with this, Vale.

I was ordered by Adonis to respond “yes” to such questions and since you’re interviewing him next, that’s what we’ll stick with.

Interview with a Character: Demen

Estándar

34097626

 

(note that Demen is our villain in this book)

 

If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?

A.   Rule the world, what do you think?      

 What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?

A.   My name is Demen. I’m 6’6” and jet black in color. Back in the day, I got the usual eye-opening stares; some felt a bit intimidated by my stature. I’m also manipulative in a charming manner, so after a few minutes, most people are captivated. Of course, if you’re a target, there’s no time to form an impression. If I come upon you, you only have a few seconds to outsmart me—or you die.

What are you most proud of about your life? (If they answer with something other than a personal statement, like a business achievement, ask “What about on a personal level?”)

A.   I was once Pharaoh of Sharkura, and a great one at that. Dignitaries from all around would come to Egypt just to see me and offer their treasures and daughters in hopes of an alliance—that is, until that annoyance from my planet found me and destroyed everything. On a personal level, you ask? It’s ridding the universe of the misery known as woman. When I set my sights on one, the predator/prey game begins. I get this natural high when they realize I’m standing there and there’s no mistaking what my motive is. Instantly, they grow stiff with fear, and by my own hands, I, Demen, control them down to their last breath.  

      Maybe you and I will cross paths one day.
