Hello all! It’s so nice to be back with this segment! You all seemed really excited about it, so without further ado, here is one of the most interesting characters I’ve managed to come up with yet!
Me: Hello Drilidric! I’m so grateful to have you for an interview today!
Drilidric: You are quite welcome, miss. I couldn’t be more delighted that you chose me for your first interview of the year!
M: I figured you would be the perfect character to kick it off. And first and foremost I’d like to put a little rumor I’ve been hearing to rest. So…is it actually true that you’re in multiple stories at the same time?
D: …Um, I’m not quite sure what you mean by that, but, I’m going to answer best I can. I do know lots of different people, from different walks of life, and I’ve been involved in many peoples lives. Does that answer your question?
M: Oh, yes…*whispers* He’s somehow managed to squeeze himself into four of my ideas! And he’s not what I would call a minor character…
D: I can hear you, you know.
M: …Right. I knew that. Anyway, what can you tell me about your family?
D: *panicked look spreads across face*
M: *shuffles vehemently through papers* Okay, sorry, that was a stupid question, forget I even said it. *gulps* Okay…I’ve heard from most everyone that you’re a very powerful wizard. Is that true?
D: *looks slightly less uncomfortable* Well, yes, you would be right. I am. I don’t feel as such, but I’m often told so.
M: Does that make you…somewhat of an outcast?
D: *smiles sadly* Yes. I was banished from Nore on several occasions and all my friends have turned on me.
M: *eyes widen* Um. Well. That’s…I’m so sorry…
D: *shrugs half-heartedly* It’s partially my fault, you know. I made everyone upset with me. Grant it I was being forced to do so by… *stiffens*
M: Please, just forget I ever said anything. *shakes head at how horrible this interview is going* Let’s move on to a lighter topic…*has to think a long moment* Tell me about your childhood.
D: *looks slightly relieved* Oh, yes, my childhood. It was a nice time. Peaceful. Nothing to worry about except if the girl next door ever noticed me. *smiles nostalgically*
M: Did she?
D: *laughs* No, of course not. But it didn’t matter, because I had my best friend, Zed. *eyes grow distant*
M: *eyes nearly pop out of head* Zed as in Zedidiah? The mad wizard behind all of the uproar in Nore?!
D: *looks sadly at me* Yes. The very same. *crosses arms* He didn’t always used to be that way. We lived across from each other in Fanastasia, went to school together. But…then I moved away and I didn’t see him for a good five years. We still wrote to each other, though. I still have some of the letters actually.
M: Didn’t you meet Vasi during your years away from him?
D: Yes! You’re quite perceptive, I must say. Yes, we all went to college together, me, Zed, Vasi, and Trich. It was a grand time, for the most part. But then…things happened…
M: *internal face-palm* Never mind. Let’s move away from the past and focus on the present. You’re working closely with Paige and Markus, right?
D: Yes, I’m trying to help them fight against Zed. And of course I would help them, Mar-
D: Oh. You probably don’t want me to say, do you?
M: If at all possible.
D: *stares at hands* Well. This leaves little to talk about, unless we want to venture into the more spoiler-y topics. Which I’m assuming is off limits?
M: *blinks* Yes. Well. Um, how about a few parting questions then? What is your favorite color? It’s tradition!
D: *tilts head in thought* I’ve always been partial to the color of gold. Though that’s not really a color I suppose.
M: It works. Where do you live now?
D: I live in a little apartment building in downtown Fallcoast. It’s not ideal, but I manage.
M: *feels a bit of pity* Lastly, are you going to stop Zedidiah from killing Paige and Markus?
D: *eyes harden* You can bet on it.
That’s the interview! Ah, it’s so nice to be writing these again! What did you think? He has got to be the most interesting character I’ve written about. Let me know what you think of him down below!
