Rynn is the main character of the novel I’ll be writing for Camp NaNoWriMo next month: The Masked Captain. She’s headstrong, rebellious, witty, and more than willing to break the rules for a good cause. I hope you enjoy her interview. :)
Rynn: *comes in and takes a seat* Hello.
Interviewer: Hello. How are you?
Rynn: I’m doing well. How are you?
Interviewer: Also doing well. Are you ready to get started?
Interviewer: What’s your name?
Rynn: Rynn Gisele Aryon.
Interviewer: How old are you?
Interviewer: Do you have any siblings?
Rynn: I have an older brother, Rhylan.
Interviewer: Are you two close?
Rynn: *nods and smiles* He’s a great brother. I get on his nerves rather often, but he’s patient and actually values my opinion, unlike some people.
Interviewer: Who do you have problems with?
Rynn: Mostly my father. He doesn’t want to listen to me, even though I’m right, just because he’s my father and he’s the king. He says I’m disrespectful.
Interviewer: Other than that of princess, do you have a job?
Rynn: Is this interview being written publicly?
Rynn: *hesitates a moment* I’m a military captain. I go by Aelgan Revine, but a lot of people simply call me The Masked Captain.
Interviewer: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Interviewer: What’s your favorite food?
Rynn: Issabelle Eckard’s apple pie. Or really any of her pies. She’s an excellent cook.
Interviewer: Who is she?
Rynn: She’s Lady of Peren, and the mother of one of my best friends, Halder.
Interviewer: How did you and Halder become friends?
Rynn: I’m sure we met at some official function, being Princess and Lord-Dependent, but we really started getting to know each other when the Eckards invited my family for dinner when I was about six. His family is extremely welcoming, so Rhylan and I quickly became like a part of the family.
Interviewer: Do you have a favorite color?
Rynn: Dark red. Which means I’m in luck, since it’s Scythia’s national color.
Interviewer: Any particular reason?
Rynn: *shakes her head* I just think it’s pretty.
Interviewer: Do you have a favorite book?
Rynn: *eyes light up as she grins* Are you kidding? I have dozens of favorite books! The castle library is one of my favorite places. And I like spoken stories just as well, so I like to join the Eckards for their evening storytellings.
Interviewer: What is your favorite animal?
Rynn: I don’t have one type of animal that’s a favorite, but I do have a handful of favorite specific animals. Rhylan’s pet falcon, Aura; my horse, Legacy; and the Eckards’ dog, Finn.
Interviewer: What breed is Finn?
Rynn: A chocolate Golden Retriever. And Legacy’s a red dun stallion.
Interviewer: What are your hobbies, besides reading?
Rynn: Riding, running, sparring, that kind of thing. I do best with activities that require hand-eye coordination.
Interviewer: Which of these is most important to you: kindness, intelligence, or bravery?
Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?
Interviewer: Last question: What’s something you can’t leave home without?
Rynn: A book.
Interviewer: Thank you for your time. *smiles*
Rynn: *returns the smile* Of course. Thank you for your interest. *inclines her head before leaving*
