Prince Eristor of Tirran
Eristor has been interviewed By the People and For the People. Not one of these questions is mine (I promise) and I also promise to not interfere during this interivew. The questions will be directly asked to Eristor himself, and he will answer. I said nothing to him (except ‘behave’ and ‘smile’ and ‘no killing anyone’) so this is a completely unbiased and original interview. You asked. He’ll answer (maybe). You’ll pay.
WARNING: I did NOT expect this many questions to come his way. (Eristor! You’re popular! …don’t give me that look!) I hope you enjoy it, and if it’s too long you can always take a break, get some tea and cookies, and rejoin us in a bit.
What compelled you to adopt Tylir?
Contrary to popular belief, I am not heartless. I would not leave an abandoned child to die.
What are your feelings about Caranthir?
It will come as no surprise to you when I tell you I have vowed to kill him for what he did to my mother and sister. I would have let him live if he had dealt only with me. He brought his death upon himself.
What are your motivations?
Revenge, I suppose you could say. But I also have no love of Oscariath and do not wish to see him overtake my world.
Are you ticklish?
If you were stranded on a desert island with Valentine, and no weapons and plenty of food and both of his hands were broken and one of his feet, would you leave *jabber jaw alone?
I would, until he healed. Then, I am afraid he would have to go. Dead or swimming, it would be his choice.
*Jabber Jaws/Vosh/Capp are code names for Michelle’s character, Valentine. He and Eristor are constantly running in circles.
If you had to choose between loosing an eye and loosing a leg, which would you choose?
Though I can hardly see anyone getting close enough to me to pluck an eye from my head, I would choose the eye-plucking. One can still fight and function with only one eye.
If you had to choose between bugs being thrust under your skin, and set on fire, which would you choose?
I hope these questions are not leading up to something unpleasant.
Me: Eristor, that isn’t answering the question.
If Valentine hypothetically sold your kelehb sticks on e-bay how long would he have to change his name, move to a different country, and enter the witness protection program?
About as long as it would take me to discover he’d stolen them. Which would be impossible, I might add.
Why do you hate humans so much?
*sigh* My stepfather was a human.
Me: You have to give them a little more reason than that, Eristor.
Eristor: *narrows eyes at me* He murdered my mother, drove my sister into disappearance, and tortured me until I escaped. Need I add that he relentlessly pursues myself and my friends with the sole intention of killing us?
If given the choice, would you rather die of thirst or sun exposure?
I’m growing suspicious of all these death-oriented questions.
Me: Don’t worry. You don’t die. I don’t think. I haven’t finished your books yet.
Eristor: If you dare –
Me: HEY! I’m the author, NOT you, sit back down and stop pointing those things at me!
Eristor: You said you would not interfere! *growls* I believe sun exposure would lead to thirst, therefore these options are one and the same. Null and void. Next question.
If you had to deal with both Alec and a certain red headed jabber jaw, would you go insane?
If I were going to be driven insane, I believe it would have happened already. So, no.
If you had an alter ego, what would you name it?
Alec: *runs in offstage* OOH! OOh, I know! I know! DARTH VADER.
Eristor: …Darth -?
Alec: Dun-dun-dun, dun-dun-DUUNNN, dun-dun-DUUNNNN! DUN, DUN, DUN DUN-
Sienna: *runs in behind Alec* ALEC! Get back here! *hauls him offstage, still singing the Emperial March at the top of his lungs*
Have you ever actually killed someone/s?
…yes. I am nearing the point of adding another to the list.
Well, that’s all for now, folks! I think Eristor’s patience is wearing thin (and it wasn’t very thick to begin with!) Like I said, I did NOT expect the amount of questions he was asked, so there will be at LEAST two more parts, maybe three. If there is something you want to ask him, be it of silly or serious nature, feel free to leave it in a comment!
