Aveza of the Ercanhelm {Character Interview}




{Author Bio} Rebekah DeVall is the author of "When Your Melody Fades" and many more upcoming Christian fantasy books. Find her on Facebook or her blog.






I've had the pleasure of working with Rebekah for some time now, although we can be pretty good at distracting each other rather than working. (I am NOT an angry kitten!) She's a talented lady who, I have high hopes, will go far with her writing.






Aveza of the Ercanhelm

{Interview with Hagan}


Hagan Kenlin is king of Korbin. All other information is classified.

(Note from the author: He’s a surly fellow, man of few words, and INTJ.)




ALT: What is your full name?
Hagan Kenlin.

ALT: What was/is your relationship with your father?
He always preferred my brother. Can I blame him? No.

ALT: Siblings?
I had one brother, Othmar, king of Allod. He was born to rule Allod—I made myself able to rule Korbin. Opposing countries, yet we brothers came to rule the greatest kingdoms of the world, at least for some time.

ALT: How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period of time?
Love is a thing for peasants. Marriage is an arrangement for mutual benefit, or at least for my benefit. It served me well, first with Brunhild, now with Johanna.

ALT: If you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?
  1. The throne of Korbin, unquestioned, in my hands.
  2. A son, to take over the throne after my death… and only one. I need no civil war.
  3. Prosperity never kills.

ALT: How do you decide if you can trust someone? Experience with others? With this person? First impressions? Intuition? Do you test the person somehow? Or are you just generally disposed to trust or not to trust?
I do not trust until my trust is earned, and even then… only time can tell. Brunhild proved me wrong there.

ALT: Did you turn out the way you expected you would? The way your parents expected?
My parents expected me to be a failure. They were wrong with that, as they were with so much else.

ALT: What are you most proud of in your life?
The youngest prince of Allod, the failure, now king of Korbin? I should think that quite an accomplishment.

ALT: Have you ever been arrested? What for?
I do the arresting.

ALT: How would you, if you could, choose to die?
Of old age, having a son to rule my throne and make it greater than even I could.

ALT: If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it would be?
I succeed at all I put my mind to do.

ALT: You're the kind of person who:
Makes my own way in life. Station and laws will not hold me back, nor will the opposition of small organizations such as the Ercanhelm. Nothing will stop me from my destiny, nothing at all.
