Guest Post: Interview with Xariel


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.
