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.
Interviewer: Good morning. How are you?
Detren: I’m doing well. How are you?
Interviewer: I’m doing very well. Shall we get started?
Interviewer: What is your name?
Detren: Detren Everlind.
Interviewer: How old are you?
Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?
Detren: No. There are rumors that my mother was pregnant when she dies, but even I don’t know if they’re true or not.
Interviewer: I’m sorry. When did your mother die?
Detren: About eight years ago.
Interviewer: A while ago, then. I’m sure it still hurts. What is your job?
Detren: I’m prince of Roenor.
Interviewer: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Detren: A little of both.
Interviewer: What is your favorite food?
Detren: Hmm. Blackberry pastries.
Interviewer: What is your favorite color?
Detren: Dark red.
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: They’re strong, beautiful, and useful.
Interviewer: Is there a job you’d rather have than the one you have now?
Detren: I’d love to be a historian.
Interviewer: What are your hobbies?
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.
Detren: You’re very welcome. Thank you for yours. *shakes the interviewer’s hand before leaving*
