Character Interview: Detren Everlind

Detren is from The Shadow Raven, the third book of my Dark War Trilogy, along with Nissa Quail. He’s one of my favorite characters, which I feel like I say for most of my characters, lol. He’s the son of King Alleyn of Roenor, a reader, and a pianist. I hope you enjoy his interview. :)


Detren: *comes in and takes a seat, shaking the interviewer’s hand* Good morning.

Detren: It’s similar to Roenor’s national color, bright red, but it fits me better.

Interviewer: What is your favorite book?

Detren: There are so many to choose from! *thinks for several minutes* I’m not sure. Probably one of the history books I studied with Terlon, my tutor.

Interviewer: What is your favorite animal?

Detren: Horses.

Detren: Studying history, drawing, and recording events.

Interviewer: What traits do you look for in a potential wife?

Detren: Someone playful, possibly mysterious, and someone who will help me make Roenor better.

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

Detren: All are traits that should be striven for, but probably bravery.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?

Detren: Honesty, but they’re close.

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

Detren: My private guard, apparently. But by choice, probably my journal.

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