Are you the hero of your own story?
That depends on your perspective. I believe I am a hero yet I am sure many of your readers might not understand my motivations.
Friends…(laughs). I have no need of friends. Servants on the other hand I can use. I do not care how others see me, their thoughts are of no concern to me.
How do your enemies see you?
They fear me, or if they do not yet, they will. I wield powerful magic and it is getting stronger. My enemies will have some sense of my power, soon!
How does the author see you?
She pities me! She keeps harping on about how dark my soul is but how damaged I am. She is mistaken.
What do you think of yourself?
What sort of question is that? Who on earth asks such a question? (pause). I care for myself. I think I am beautiful, very beautiful at least men find me so, and woman of course. This fact speaks for itself, does it not!
Do you have a hero?
(Scoffs) I have no need for heroes. My father was once my hero, but he betrayed me. I admire no one; seek strength from no one except the god of mysteries Amun.
Do you have a goal?
Revenge is my only goal. Those who persecuted me will suffer. The General, the Priestess and the King, all of them will pay for what they did.
What makes you happy?
Power makes me happy, well not so much happy, what is happy anyway? Power arouses me and that feeling makes me joyous.
What are you afraid of?
I fear nothing, not even death.
What is your biggest disappointment?
I do not remember my mother. Not really. She died when I was young and I barely remember her face….
Are you honorable?
Honourable (laughs). What a unique notion. I guess General Martinez might be considered honourable; he is foolish at times. I feel no such compulsion to honour anyone. As I said, my own father betrayed me, and my Pharaoh disowned me and threw me out on the streets. Honour, what a joke!
What was your childhood like?
Let us say that my childhood was unconventional. I gave my body to a slave boy first. My father encouraged me to seduce him. Yes, unconventional is the right word.
Who is your true love?
Love is a foolish notion. I love power and power alone. Loving simply ends in disaster. Desire, now desire is quite another story. I desire a great many men, even women.
Have you ever had an adventure?
My life is full of adventure. I cannot share too much without spoiling the story for everyone, but I will let you in on a little secret (Jezebel leans over). I have a very adventurous life and readers will share in all the intimate details.
Was there a major turning point in your life?
I spent a night with someone, in Seed of Hope. It changed everything for me. It took me time to realise it, but something inside of me broke that night.
