Character Interview: Cor Claris

If Tiberius is my favorite character from The Last Assassin, Cor is a close second. He’s basically Catessa’s nephew, and he’s so sweet and wise. ^-^ I think my favorite line of his is:

We can’t just leave them! They’re our family, not some casual friends we can leave when the going gets tough. You should never leave just because the going gets tough. When you become friends with someone it’s a promise that you’ll stick by them through thick and thin. How much more so when you make yourselves family?

He’s extremely wise for his age and he’s adorable and I just want to hug him every time he comes into the story. But anyway, on to his interview.


Cor: *comes in and takes a seat across from the interviewer, his feet dangling above the floor* Hello. *smiles*

Interviewer: *returns the smile* Hello there. How are you?

Cor: I’m good. How are you?

Interviewer: I’m doing well. Should we start?

Cor: *nods*

Interviewer: What is your name?

Cor: Cor Maenon Claris.

Interviewer: How old are you?

Cor: Nine.

Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?

Cor: I have a little sister named Lily. She’s two. *grins*

Interviewer: Are you excited to have a little sister?

Cor: *nods, still grinning* Absolutely! I’ve always wanted a younger sibling.

Interviewer: *can’t help but grin* That’s cool. I don’t have any siblings.

Cor: That’s cool, too. It’s quieter that way.

Interviewer: *laughs* I”m sure it is. I’m going to ask you the next question, but I think I probably already know the answer. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Cor: Extrovert. I love people. *grins*

Interviewer: I have a feeling you’ll like this one. What is your favorite food?

Cor: Druan’s cinnamon rolls! I miss those.

Interviewer: Who’s Druan?

Cor: My grandfather, basically. He’s actually my great-uncle, but grandfather is easier and my real grandfather – my dad’s dad – died before my mom was born. I’ve never met my mom’s parents.

Interviewer: Mm. Do you know your real grandfather’s name?

Cor: I think it was Kane. And my mom’s parents are Maenon and Rielle. Lily and I were both named after them. My middle name and hers. We might be meeting them soon.

Interviewer: That would be nice.

Cor: *nods*

Interviewer: *after a pause* What’s your favorite color?

Cor: Blue. The color of the ocean.

Interviewer: Why the ocean?

Cor: My dad’s a merchant, so he sails a lot and I tend to go with him. I’m almost more comfortable on the sea than on land. *laughs*

Interviewer: Do you have a favorite book?

Cor: Soldiers of the East. My mom used to read it to me when I was little, and then I read it to myself once I could.

Interviewer: What’s your favorite animal?

Cor: I really like dogs. I wish I could convince Mom and Dad to let me get one. Or if you want a fake one, the Caeceus from Soldiers of the East. I’d love to be one of the soldiers of the Pastyna Regiment riding the Caeceus valiantly into battle. *grins*

Interviewer: That certainly sounds exciting. Do you have a favorite character?

Cor: Seeker Kassis. He’s good at helping people without getting caught by the Eilram.

Interviewer: *doesn’t have any more idea than you or me what Cor is talking about* *nods* He sounds like a pretty cool guy. Besides reading, do you have any hobbies?

Cor: Fishing, climbing things, scaring my mom, playing with Lily, stuff like that.

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

Cor: Kindness. But all of them are important.

Interviewer: What about these two: Honesty or selflessness?

Cor: Both.

Interviewer: Is there something you can’t leave the house – or ship – without?

Cor: *thinks for a minute, his green eyes focusing on the ceiling* Not really. I mean, clothes, but…

Interviewer: *laughs* Thank you, Cor. That’s the last question.

Cor: *grins and hops off the chair, heading out of the room*


Well that was the most fun character interview I’ve written yet. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. :)

    1. It’s a work-in-progress. :) Cor is my most adorable character, and I think he’s also the youngest, though maybe not in this project. He’s in a project that precedes this one and he’s only six in that one. ^-^
