This interview took place prior to Lady of Starfire. It will contain spoilers up to that point.
Q: What is your most memorable assignment within the Black Syndicate?
A: You would think it'd be some grand mission to some exotic place, but in actuality, it was when I had to go get the Wraiths (insert eye roll). They got themselves into a tight spot with some Toreall rebels. Literally. They managed to get stuck in a ravine. As their personal guards in the Syndicate, Rylan, Kane, and I were sent to track them down. They tended to get...distracted on their missions. When we found them, they were covered head-to-toe in mud, and by the time we got them out, so were we. We weren't threatening or killing anyone. When I look back on it now, it was actually...fun and a rare fond memory amid an array of dark ones. Even if the girls complained about mud for next three months.
Q: What were your first impressions of Sorin?
A: He was an arrogant, moody bastard. He made it very clear very quickly that you don't piss him off. When the High Force was announced, men clamored to prove they were worthy of the unit. Captain Renwell had over half of them quitting in the first two days. Once I got to know him a bit more in various meetings and around the grounds, he wasn't too bad. I respected him. He kept to himself most of the time, but he was a good captain and an excellent fighter.
Q: Will you take a Source other than Cyrus? Or will you wait until Cyrus is back?
A: That is... Cyrus deserves more than... I can't imagine he will even want that anymore. Not after what I said to him. But if I need to take a Source to ensure my magic is at full strength to get him back, then I will do whatever is necessary. Because that is what he deserves.
Q: What's it feel like to be able to fly, and only have the wings when needed?
A: In the beginning, flying was unnerving. So many things are out of your control. I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing half the time, but the more I train, the more I'm coming around to it. As for only having the wings when needed? I don't have complete control over that yet. Scarlett and Cy-- (clears throat) They think it's funny to try and get them to appear at inopportune times.
Q: Do you think you will ever forgive your mother?
A: The High Witch is different from my father. Tybalt didn't know of my existence. The High Witch knew. She could have done something. So many things could have been different. But I guess you could say the same about Eliné or Scarlett's mother. Maybe when everything has settled down and this war is over, I can have some time to really process everything that has happened in the last year.
Q: If you could have Scarlett understand one thing, what would it be?
A: That none of us follow her out of some sense of duty or because we feel like it is required of us. That as much as she fights fate, she was born to wear a crown.
Q: Fuck, Marry, Kill: Nuri, Kailia, Arianna.
A: For fuck's sake, Scarlett. (Glaring at her)
Q: Fine. Fuck, Marry, Kill: Rayner, Stellan, Azrael.
A (after a stare down with Scarlett and glancing awkwardly at Rayner and Azrael): Fuck Rayner, Marry Azrael, Kill Stellan.
Q: If you had a chance to redo one thing from your past, what would that be?
A (grumbling): Not agree to do this interview.
