Character Interview: Orl Fazar

PictureHere’s an interview with Orl Fazar, the drifter and renegade mage from Bad Hunting (Daughter of the Wildings Book 2):

1. What is your full name? Is there anything significant about your name?
I’m known as Orl Fazar. Maybe it bears a resemblance to my real name, maybe it doesn’t.

2. How old are you?
I’m 33 years old.

3. Tell us about your family. What do you like and not like about them?
They’re mages. More powerful than some, maybe not as powerful as others. You might have heard of them. Or maybe not. My parents had ambitions for me, which I like to think I’m carrying out in my own way.

4. Who was your first kiss, and what did you think of it?
It’s been so long, and there’s been so many women since then, I don’t remember. It was probably a girl at school, but I was taken out of school when I was twelve or so, so I was pretty young.

5. What is your occupation?
I’m just a simple, peace-loving mage, looking to make a better life for myself out in the Wildings away from the Mage Council. They call me a rogue mage, but just because I don’t care for authority doesn’t make me a renegade.

6. What are your best and worst qualities?
Like I said, I’m just a simple mage, minding my own business, don’t mean harm to no one. I’m pretty smart; you’ve got to be, living by your wits out here in the Wildings. I’ve beat some of the best gamblers in the Wildings at Dragon’s Threes, using some, let’s say, little tricks of my own. And no filthy blueskin’s been able to get the better of me yet.

My worst qualities? Well, I reckon I’ve got my weaknesses like any man, but I don’t think they do any harm.

7. What quality do you value most in a romantic partner?
I’m on the lookout for a nice Wildings gal with mage power. Keep the gift in the family, so to speak. I do like a woman who’s feisty. The harder they fight, the better I like it.

8. What is your favorite thing to do?
Well, heh heh, see my answer to your last question. Other than that, I just enjoy being a peaceful fellow, not bothering anyone and not having anyone bother me.

9. What is your greatest fear?
I don’t really think I’ve got anything to be afraid of, except getting hauled before the Mage Council. I’ll give up everything else before I let some damned hunter take me in.

10. What is your most treasured possession?
My freedom and my power. Material possessions just don’t mean much to a fellow like me, so long as I have those other things.
