Hello! Welcome to this week’s installment of Character Conversations! Today, I’ll be interviewing a hero! Or so the world thinks…
Me: Hi Diana! Take a seat.
Diana: Oh, thank you. *sits*
M: So…tell me. What’s it like being a Super hero?
D: *blinks* Oh, so you must know then. Well…it’s, really not all it’s cracked up to be. It does feel great helping people, but…It’s hard.
M: *frowns* I can imagine. I’ll bet it’s harder in more ways than one. But anyway, you must know Trick-Track?
D: Yes, I do. He’s my archenemy. Always causing trouble for me to clean up.
M: Remind me of you powers again?
D: I have a form of light manipulation that allows me to work it and use it to my advantage.
M: Cool. Were you born with it?
D: Um…no. I wasn’t. I don’t remember how I became Super. The memories were washed away after the accident.
M: So there was an accident? That’s what gave you your powers? Huh. Oh, and love the name, by the way. Ruby Wolf. How’d you come up with it?
D: It’s…kind of embarrassing. I loved the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood when I was younger. The name just sprang from that.
M: It’s the perfect name for a hero. *sips tea* Where do you work?
D: I work at the T&S Tech Firm. I’m an assistant to Mr. Kauffman.
M: *blinks* Mr. Kauffman himself? How’d you land that position?
D: Oh, luck, I guess. *smiles* I’ve always been interested in computers, so it seemed natural that’d I’d end up working with them.
M: Does anyone know about your being Super?
D: No one. Except for…a few people. I’m not very trusting.
M: That’s good. It’s good to stay safe. *mumbles* Though the people who know aren’t the best kinds of people…
M: …Nothing. So those fights we see on TV all the time…those are you fighting Trick-Track?
D: Yeah. Though, I don’t watch the news often. I don’t like watching myself. It feels weird. *shakes head*
M: Yeah, I don’t like that either. So do you like being a Super, or do you feel like the responsibility was tossed at you and you just had to fumble through with it?
D: *blank* I…don’t know. I’ve never been asked that question. I suppose I like it. It’s definitely an unusual job.
M: With unusual hours and unusual tasks. Do you ever wish you could just be a normal person?
D: Often, yes. *blushes* It’s not that I don’t like that I’m Super…I just…
M: Don’t like it? It’s okay, I know other Supers who feel the same way.
D: You know other Supers?
M: …Yes? I mean, they’re kind of everywhere, aren’t they? Hard to avoid them?
D: Oh. I guess. *shrugs*
M: *raises eyebrow* Well, we should probably wrap this up. Tell me what you’re favorite food is.
D: I like Chinese food. Chow mein, fried rice, dumplings, all of it.
M: Me too! Do you play an instrument?
D: I play the oboe a little. I don’t sound very good though.
M: I bet you sound better than you think. Okay, lastly, do you believe what you see on TV?
D: *swallows* Why wouldn’t I?
M: Hm. Okay. Thanks for coming in.
D: Yeah, sure. Have a nice day.
A bit strange…She’s a sweet character though. She’s relatively new to me, so I’m still getting to know her. 😉 What do you think? Is she nice? Let me know down below!
