Character Interview: Rynn Aryon

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?

Rynn: *nods*

Interviewer: What’s your name?

Rynn: Rynn Gisele Aryon.

Interviewer: How old are you?

Rynn: Seventeen.

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?

Interviewer: No.

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?

Rynn: Introvert.

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?

Rynn: Bravery.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?

Rynn: Honesty.

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*

    1. Well… she’s not all that polite at the beginning of the book. :P (And I think you’ve finally uncovered for me what character change I need to work into my outline. Thanks!)
      Thank you! I’m really happy with the title, too. ^-^
