Character Interview: Wisterin Larn

Wisterin is a character from The King’s Paladin, and she grew up with Coraline and Toril (she’s also featured in The Paladins, so if you decide she’s interesting you should consider checking that out in my Short Story Collection Vol. 1). She’s a spy, and you probably don’t want to get on the wrong side of her because she could kill you while you sleep, though her flirtatious exterior might indicate otherwise. Enjoy her interview. :)

Wisterin: *comes in and takes a seat across from the interviewer, wearing lavender like she knows she’s not supposed to. Again*

Interviewer: Hello. *sees the purple* I thought I heard that purple was a color reserved for royalty. Are you royalty and I don’t know about it? I know I did my research. *chuckles a bit*

Wisterin: *smirks* Maybe I am.

Interviewer: You’re going to be fun to work with. Can I start with your name?

Wisterin: Wisterin. *her lavender eyes will be perpetually twinkling throughout this interview*

Interviewer: I don’t get anything more than that?

Wisterin: *shakes her head, smirking*

Interviewer: Okay then. How old are you?

Wisterin: Nineteen.

Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?

Wisterin: No.

Interviewer: Do you have a job?

Wisterin: I’m the palace spy.

Interviewer: *arches an eyebrow* And you’re okay with just telling me this? But you won’t tell me even your last name?

Wisterin: *rolls eyes, smirking* Fine, it’s Larn.

Interviewer: *laughs* You know that’s not what I meant.

Wisterin: It worked for you anyway. *shrugs, still smirking*

Interviewer: Okay then, what is your favorite food?

Wisterin: Chocolate. Preferably the dark kind.

Interviewer: Favorite color?

Wisterin: Any shade of purple, since I’m not allowed to wear it. *grins* But especially lavender. Or, as the shade may be called, wisteria.

Interviewer: Is that why you like it, then? Because it’s similar to your name?

Wisterin: Oh no. I just like subtly asserting dominance. *grins*

Interviewer: Do you have a favorite book?

Wisterin: Prince of Shadows.

Interviewer: Does anyone on Themar read anything other than the Kersir novellas? (Hey there, buddy, that’s a breaking of the fourth wall…)

Wisterin: *laughs* Yes. I guess you’ve just talked to all the wrong people to hear about anything else.

Interviewer: Do you have a favorite animal?

Wisterin: Hm… Griffins. I’ve only seen one once, but I’ve heard a number of stories. They’re really majestic, strong, powerful, beautiful, and free. *smiles* If I could become any animal I’d be a griffin.

Interviewer: What are your hobbies, besides spying?

Wisterin: Playing chess – that’s something I’ve been trained to play since I was little – doing acrobatics around the castle, flirting… That’s about it.

Interviewer: You consider flirting a hobby? *laughs*

Wisterin: It’s fun and it takes up a significant portion of my time, so yes. *grins*

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

Wisterin: Intelligence. Life’s no fun with stupid people.

Interviewer: *stifles a laugh and disguises it by clearing his throat* And honesty or selflessness?

Wisterin: *frowns* Neither. Honesty means no secrets, but I like keeping secrets. Selflessness is boring, not to mention exhausting. Can you imagine how much energy it would take to do things for other people all the time? No thank you. I’ll keep my secrets and my energy both, please.

Interviewer: *his excitement kind of fades* What’s something you can’t leave home without?

Wisterin: My knives.

Interviewer: How many of those do you have?

Wisterin: Have? Quite a few. Wear regularly? About a dozen. I always like to be prepared. *grins*

Interviewer: Prepared for what?

Wisterin: *grins and stands up, kissing her fingers and waving at him as she leaves without so much as a ‘goodbye’*
