Algon: *comes in and sits across from the interviewer, crossing his legs and resting his arms on the back of his chair* Hi.
Interviewer: *arches an eyebrow and shifts kind of uncomfortably* Hello. How are you today?
Algon: Excellent. How are you?
Algon: What’s your name?
Interviewer: Lila. *shakes her head* I’m the one interviewing you, not the other way around. What’s your name?
Algon: Algon Raen. I’m surprised you haven’t heard of me.
Lila: Well, I’m not very familiar with Kaloris. What makes you important enough to be well-known?
Algon: *scoffs* I’m the nephew of King Aidric, not to mention his second-in-command. And I’m coming up on a promotion. *grins*
Lila: How would you be promoted from second-in-command?
Algon: *smirks* Wouldn’t you like to know.
Lila: Um… *looks at her question sheet to get back on track* How old are you?
Lila: *raises eyebrows* You looked… younger.
Algon: *grins* I get that a lot. *brushes his red mohawk*
Lila: *clears her throat and looks at her question list again* Do you have any siblings?
Algon: What, hoping I have a younger brother?
Lila: *glares at him* Don’t make me cut this thing short.
Algon: *chuckles* No. I’m an only child. Sorry to disappoint.
Lila: *mutters* Yeah, you’re spoiled like one. Do you have a favorite food?
Algon: Pathar meat.
Lila: What’s a Pathar?
Algon: The toughest animal in Kor-Baen. It’s a bear twice the size of any other, with golden fur and stone-like scales on its back. They’re extremely deadly. I fought one single-handedly once.
Lila: Do you have a favorite color?
Algon: Red, like the forges. It’s a symbol of strength, to me.
Lila: Do you read?
Algon: *laughs, his voice booming out* Absolutely not.
Lila: Geez… Do you have a favorite animal?
Lila: Do you have any hobbies?
Algon: Sparring, forging, and more sparring.
Lila: Is anything not about strength to you?
Algon: *shakes head* Not really.
Lila: *rolls eyes* Well which of these is the most important to you: Kindness, intelligence, or bravery?
Algon: Bravery, of course, with intelligence in second.
Lila: Honesty or selflessness?
Algon: Neither. Honesty makes you vulnerable, selflessness makes you weak.
Lila: I beg to differ, but okay. Is there anything you can’t leave home without?
Algon: My axe.
Lila: Well, thank you for your time. *stands* That was the last question.
Algon: *nods and stands, whispering something inappropriate in her ear and earning himself a slap before leaving*
That was a more interesting interview than I’d expected. I’m also pretty sure I’ve now had three different named interviewers: Lila, Isabelle, and David. One of these days I’ll have to make them real characters, or at least flesh them out more, lol.
