Next Tuesday, I hope to post the first of several guest blogs. Tonight, however, I'm uploading an interview with my character, Xariel, angel of death and hero of Death Sword. Enjoy!
Interviewer: Welcome, Xariel. Thank you for letting our readers know a little more about you.
Xariel: Thank you for having me.
Interviewer: Please tell our readers who you are and what you do.
Xariel: I’m an angel of death and an angelic parole officer as needed.
Interviewer: What rank are you?
Xariel: Ophanim. Also known as Thrones.
Interviewer: How did you and Karla Black meet?
Xariel: Metatron sent me to retrieve her. At first I didn’t know why, but later found out he wanted me to train Karla as an angel of death.
Interviewer: How is Metatron to work for?
Xariel: Actually, I report to Samael and he reports to Metatron. But yeah, lately I’ve been called into Metatron’s office on a regular basis. He’s cool. Loves to mess with us, but otherwise a good boss.
Interviewer: How did Karla react when she found out she had angelic blood?
Xariel: She wasn’t happy about it, to be honest. Not that I blame her. Here she thought she was human and then Metatron tells her she’s the daughter of Azazel.
Interviewer: I imagine it would be a shock. How do the other angels feel about her?
Xariel: Samael hates her, Metatron adores her, and Gabriel probably thinks she's the most annoying person he's ever met, human or angel. (Laughs) In other words, she fits right in.
Interviewer: What’s it like being an angel?
Xariel: Hard to explain. We have certain powers: telepathy, teleportation, rapid healing, immortality, but we’re also of a different race from humans. It's more than flying around with harps and halos. Those are myths by the way.
Interviewer: You mentioned teleporting. Don’t angels fly?
Xariel: Of course. Teleporting is easier and more efficient.
Interviewer: It seems we have a lot to learn about you and angels in general. We’d love to have you back for another interview.
Xariel: Thank you. I’d love to come back.
Interviewer: We’ll make it happen. Tell us where we can find more information about you.
Xariel: I have a blog at Of the Moon, Curses, and Death.
