Character Interview: Charette Audrian

Charette is an Elf from Shae-Nir, Kaloris, but she lives in the capital of the country, Cron Hatal, because she doesn’t care much for Shae-Nir’s values and she much prefers the company of humans with less of a moral code. The phrase “femme fatale” fits her rather well.

Charette: *takes a seat and elegantly crosses her legs* Hello.

Interviewer: Hello. How are you today?

Charette: Fine. How are you?

Interviewer: I’m fine. Shall we get started?

Charette: *nods once*

Interviewer: What is your name?

Charette: Charette Russe Audrian.

Interviewer: How old are you?

Charette: Twenty-five.

Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?

Charette: Not anymore. I left my family behind.

Interviewer: You care about them that little?

Charette: *shrugs* They believe the same things as all the other Elves. They’re narrow-minded and I was stifled with them. They never understood me, I never understood them, so it wasn’t too hard to leave. *she glances at the floor for a moment, then back at him* May we return to the script?

Interviewer: *nods* What’s your job?

Charette: Whatever circumstances require. Most people call me a spy. I say I’m more of a shapeshifter.

Interviewer: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Interviewer: Which of these is most important to you: Kindness, intelligence, or bravery?

Charette: Intelligence.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?

Charette: Honesty.

Interviewer: As a shapeshifter, couldn’t people consider you dishonest?

Charette: *smirks* Many do. You asked me which one I considered more important, not whether or not I truly value them.

Interviewer: I suppose that’s true. What do you value, then?

Charette: Intelligence and cunning.

Interviewer: Is there something you can never leave the house without?

Charette: A tube of lipstick. *she wears a slight smirk*

Interviewer:  That was the last question. Thank you for your time.

Charette: Of course. *she’s still faintly smirking as she glides out*

Character Interview: Fiona Wildman

Fiona is the main character of my short story Silence, which will be published in the short story collection I’m publishing on January 15th, and then on its own later in the year. She’s a runaway from a tech company that wants to use her DNA to make a race of superhumans, which is why she’ll come across as borderline rude in this interview. She doesn’t trust easily. I hope you enjoy her interview. :)

Character Interview: Orsa Lars

Orsa is the sweet old lady of The Last Assassin… And also a suspect for murder. I love keeping my audience on their toes with her, because I love her and I love the possibilities with her.

Orsa: *comes in and gracefully takes a seat* Hello.

Interviewer: Hello. How are you today?

Orsa: I’m doing well. How are you?

Interviewer: I’m fine. A bit tired. Shall we begin?

Orsa: *nods once* Of course.

Interviewer: What is your name?

Orsa: Orsa Anise Lars.

Interviewer: How old are you?

Orsa: Fifty-three.

Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?

Orsa: I had an older brother, Aren. He died a couple of years ago.

Interviewer: I’m so sorry. What happened?

Orsa: His heart failed.

Interviewer: I’m sorry to hear that.

Orsa: *nods, looking pained at the memory, but composed*

Interviewer: *waits a moment* Do you mind if we go on?

Orsa: Not at all. *smiles a bit*

Interviewer: *nods* What is your job?

Orsa: I’m the high steward of Kaloris.

Interviewer: And what does a high steward do, exactly?

Orsa: I’m the king’s most trusted advisor, and when he’s gone I’m in charge of things.

Interviewer: Favorite color?

Orsa: Maroon.

Interviewer: What is your favorite book?

Orsa: The Adventures of Florencine Lily. It’s one I’ve enjoyed since I was a girl, and it’s what got me into herbs and spices.

Orsa: *nods* I’m the leading specialist of herbs, spices, poisons, and remedies in the Kaloran court.

Interviewer: Interesting. What is your favorite animal?

Orsa: I don’t have one.

Interviewer: Is there a job you’d rather have than the one you have now?

Orsa: *shakes head* No. I’m happy where I am. If I were to get another job, though, it would be as a healer.

Interviewer: What are your hobbies, aside from herbal things?

Orsa: Singing, playing flute, and reading.

Interviewer: Which of these is most important to you: Kindness, intelligence, or bravery?

Orsa: Intelligence, with the bravery to use it well.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness.

Orsa: In a way you sometimes have to be selfless to be honest. Sometimes being honest would bring down someone’s opinion of you, and you have to lay aside your pride to be honest.

Interviewer: True. What is something you can never leave the house without?

Orsa: My herb bags. You never know when you might need them.

Interviewer: *nods* That was the last question. Thank you for your time.

Orsa: You’re very welcome. *leaves*
