Character Interview: Wren & June Lorne

I’m doing something a little bit different with this post and interview two characters together, because their characters lend themselves well to that and I think it’ll be fun. Wren and Juniper (June) are twins, expert swordplayers, and pretty much polar opposites when it comes to personality. They’re rarely seen apart, mostly because June is overprotective. I hope you enjoy their interview. :)

June and Wren: *enter the interview room and take their chairs across from the interviewer*

June: *sits back with her arms and legs crossed, looking totally disinterested*

Wren: *sits stock straight, face betraying no emotion*

Interviewer: Good morning. How are you two today?

June: Fine.

Wren: *nods once in agreement with June*

Interviewer: Are you ready to start?

June: *shrugs* Sure.

Interviewer: *looks to Wren for a response and gets none* *looks at his question sheet* What are your names?

June: Juniper Lorne, but everyone calls me June. And no, you may not call me Juniper.

Wren: Wren Lorne.

Interviewer: How old are you?

June: Nineteen.

Interviewer: *glances at Wren*

June: We’re twins. I’m older.

Interviewer: Ah. *forces a smile* Do you have any other siblings?

June: No.

Interviewer: Wren, do you have a job?

Wren: Swordsman. June and I both.

Interviewer: Do you two do a lot together?

June: We have our own lives, if that’s what you mean. *her lip curls* We’re not identical by a long shot. People assume that just because we’re twins and we’re both known for our swordplay skills we tote around after each other imitating each other. The very thought is revolting. The thought that people can assume it is more so.

Interviewer: I just meant it as a question.

June: *scoffs* Sure you did.

Interviewer: Wren, are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Wren: Introvert.

Interviewer: *turns to June* And you?

June: Extrovert. Although that’s a little misleading since I don’t like much of anyone. *shrugs* I’m content to stick around Rolan, Wren, Nyas, and Elashor. Sometimes Veda. I like her pretty well.

Interviewer: Are those family? Coworkers?

June: Coworkers. Rolan’s an ex, Wren’s obviously my brother, Nyas is my mentor, and Elashor is our boss. Veda’s the healer, but she doesn’t like people any more than I do.

Interviewer: Do either of you have a favorite food?

June: The blood of my enemies.

Interviewer: *raises an eyebrow*

June: *rolls her eyes* Relax. It was a joke. I guess I like raspberries.

Interviewer: *turns to Wren*

Wren: *shrugs* No particular preference.

Interviewer: *doesn’t look convinced but moves on anyway* A favorite color?

June: Red. *teases her hair out of her face*

Wren: Black.

Interviewer: Do either of you like to read?

June: Why read about adventures when you can have them? Real adrenaline is way more exhilarating.

Wren: *flinches when the interviewer looks at him* No.

Interviewer: *really doesn’t look convinced, but again moves on* Do either of you have any hobbies aside from swordplay?

June: Throwing daggers, darts, gambling over cards, standing on top of really tall buildings, stealing things…

Wren: *voice even* I don’t have any. *swallows*

Interviewer: We’re nearing the end. *glances at question sheet* Which of these is most important to you: Kindness, intelligence, or bravery?

June: Intelligence. The world needs more of it. *curls lip*

Wren: Intelligence.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?

June: Can’t afford either in our line of work. *shrugs*

Wren: *mutters* Honesty.

Interviewer: Last question. What’s something you can’t leave the house without?

June: My sword and my brace of daggers.

Wren: My sword.

Interviewer: Thank you for your time. *smiles*

June: *gets up and leaves*

Wren: *looks briefly at the interviewer before following*

One thought on “Character Interview: Wren & June Lorne

  1. Hmm… Sounds to me like Wren was scared of June not liking his answers so he either said he had no preference or he said the same thing she said.
