Interview of the Royal Wizard Pael (from The Sword and the Dragon)

Syria Evans 2010 Interview of the Royal Wizard Pael from The Sword and the Dragon by M. R. Mathias

Syria:  How did you first meet your writer?

Pael:  I do not remember, nor do I care. Will this take long? I have potions to render and concoctions to prepare.

Syria:  Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?

Pael:  Being a main character in a great epic lends a bit of immortality to my life don’t you think? What I think about it is irrelevant.

Syria:  What are your favorite scenes in your book: action, dialog, romance?

Pael:  I am the Master Wizard Pael, wench. Ask me something about my plans to take Queen Willa’s palace at Xwarda, or how I will level Wildermont, or I will liquefy your skeleton while it is still inside you!

Syria:  Did you have a hard time convincing your author to write any particular scenes for you?

Pael:  Who is this author you keep speaking of? I was alive long before he jotted down tales about me!

Syria:  Do you infiltrate your writer’s dreams?

Pael:  Bah! Me, wench! This interview is about me!

Syria:  What do you like to do when you are not being actively read somewhere?

Pael:  I do not like to be bothered with this sort of trivial matter I assure you.

Syria:  Are you currently engaged in a relationship?

Pael: If you consider my bond with Inkling, my imp familiar, then I suppose I am attached.

Syria:  Are you happy with the genre your writer has placed you in?

Pael: I am a wizard. I can be anywhere I want to be! I suppose I could be in another genre like that fool Dresden, but fantasy is where I belong.

Syria:  If you could rewrite anything in your book, what would it be?

Pael: The climax, I assure you!

Syria:  Do you like the way the book ended?

Pael: Bah! You are testing my patience. Shall I set Shaella on you?

Syria:  Would you be interested in a sequel if your writer was so inclined?

Pael:  It has already been written.

Syria:   Do you believe that you are suitable portrayed in electronic books or would you rather be in paperback only?

Pael:  I would rather you asked a question worthy of my time!

Syria:   Did you have any input into the book cover design?

Pael: I should have. That blasted dragon stole the glory from me.

Syria:   What is the lamest characteristic your writer has attributed to you?

Pael:   My cackling laugh! I feel like an old witch when I laugh. It is tiresome!

Syria:  If you could give yourself a superpower, what would you choose?

Pael:  I have no need of a superpower as my power became superior when I opened Pavreal’s Seal and assumed the demon Shokin! Now leave me to my sorcery wench. My daughter is about to collar a dragon and I have a continent to destroy!
