Character Interview with Serena

Describe yourself in five words

Only five words! By the grace, here I go: Loyal. Free-spirited. Strong. Haunted. Smart.

How did you come to be at The Royal Protector Academy? Is that where you met Tristan?

Yes! Tristan and I met at The Royal Protector Academy. My family, the London clan of gargoyles, started the academy. My dad and uncles sent me to study there two years ago when I turned eighteen. I’ve been here since, where I recently met Tristan.

What is your favorite thing about Tristan?

Tristan has this tiny scar on his upper lip that I love. It draws me to his mouth. I can’t explain it. It’s just…sexy on him.

Would you consider Tristan to be more of a charmer or a jackwad?

*laughs* Oh, Tristan Gallagher is a total jackwad. No question.

Where would we find you on a Friday night?

I love to party. On Friday nights, you can find me drinking with friends at a bonfire.

Celebrity Crush?

Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I have a thing for sexy, bad-boy-types.

Who is your best friend?

Magali is my best friend. We’ve known one another since we were five. Mags and I met in kindergarten. It’s been best-friend-sister-love ever since. We’re rooming together at RPA.

What’s the Royal Protector Academy like? What do you DO there?

The Academy is rigorous. It’s similar to human colleges. Only instead of PE we have protector training sessions against demons and supernatural creatures. The best-of-the-best protectors are chosen to attend. If they successfully graduate, they’re given high-level protector assignments. I train and learn., in preparation to be the next leader of the gargoyle race. Or so I thought…

Do you have any specialness we should know about? Powers, etc?

Like my mother Abby, I’m an elemental gargoyle. I can manipulate the wind, rain, etc. There are other gargoyle gifts and powers that I have, but because I am royal blood, I can’t discuss them.

What are we going to see from you and Tristan in the future? Do you HAVE a future?

Tristan and I are…complicated. Our future is even more so. There is a lot going against us. I’m not sure we have a future together. What I can say, we’re enjoying the ride while it lasts.

Few questions for Tristan:

Describe yourself in five words

Five words, huh? Royal. Good-looking. Self-assured. Dark. Annoyed.

What is your favorite thing about Serena?

I love Serena’s free-spirit.

What are readers going to like the most about you?

That’s a loaded question. I’m really not all that likable. I tend to be on-edge because I have a lot on my plate right now. Nor am I winning any nice-guy awards. I am loyal. I do care deeply. I will protect those I love. So if you’re into that, I’m your guy.

Thanks for having Tristan and Serena today!
