CHARACTER INTERVIEW #1: RAIN
Hello, Rain, and thank you for offering to interview with us today.
Who said I offered?
*ignores question* To start off, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself.
Mm, I’d rather not. Don’t like getting too personal, y’know.
Oh. Hm. I got the impression you liked the attention?
From pretty girls or high-end politicians, yes. You? Not so much. In fact, you’re kind of wasting my time. *looks at phoneband* Can we speed this up a bit, please?
Okay, okay. No personal stuff. How about non personal stuff then?
Oh, I don’t know. What are your favorite hobbies?
*smirks* As if you didn’t already know. I like to spend lazy afternoons with girls. Hit up the Black Tiger Club every now and then. You know. Typical Patrician stuff. *Leans in* By the way, what are you doing Friday night?
*lifts hand, revealing wedding ring* I’m married.
Figures. You’re not my type anyway.
Oh. What is your type?
Umm, not married?
That’s pretty much half the female population.
I like to keep all options open.
Okayyyy. Let’s move on, shall we?
More questions? I seriously hope they’re better than what you’ve got so far.
You mentioned Patricians earlier. Can you tell us what a Patrician is?
Oh, come on. Everyone knows what a Patrician is.
*eye roll* Patrcician. Ummm not a Proletariat. Does that help?
Look, as much as I would love to enlighten you on our culture, you can find all this info in the public record. We’ve a huge library here in Frankfort full of all the classic literature from the past, and also some boring nonfiction stuff about our history. You should totally check it out, discover all the answers to your annoying little questions there instead of antagonizing me with them.
Okay, okay. Sheesh. About the library…do you go there often?
The normal amount, I guess.
You like to read, though, right?
Yes. But let’s just keep that between us, yes? Can’t let everyone think I’m some sort of book worm or anything.
What’s your favorite book?
Now that’s personal.
*groans* Okay. Fine. I’ll tell you. My favorite book is Peter Pan. Because I think, deep inside, we all have a lost boy longing to stay young, wishing for the way things used to be.
You wish for things to be the way they were before? Aren’t you happy with the way they are now? Why would you long for the past?
Holy Crawford. So many shoddy questions.
But, I mean, don’t you love your luxurious lifestyle?
I adore my luxurious lifestyle. *grins*
So why would you want that to change?
Can we just move on? I have a date in, like, five minutes. Don’t want to leave her hangin’ *pulls flask out of back pocket*
Okay. Let’s talk about a romance for a minute.
*smirks* My specialty. *takes swig from flask*
Do you have feelings for Ember Carter?
*Spits out drink* Seriously?
Is that a yes?
Waaaay too personal. Next?
Sorry. I didn’t realize that question would set you off…
Look, as much as I’d love to sit here and chitchat, I have more important things to do, and definitely more important people to see. Soooo, any other questions? Or can I just be on my merry way?
What, exactly, is that inside your flask you’re drinking? Surely not something you’re, um, not really supposed to be drinking…
*lazy grin* Wouldn’t you like to know.
And that’s it folks. He got bored and walked off before I could get anything else out of him.
What would you like to know about Rain? Ask in the comments and I’ll see if I can hunt him down again for more answers.
