A villain rarely gets interviewed these days so I decided to extend the offer to the bad guy in my debut novel, Finding Monsters. It was tricky. He's not from our realm...
Liss: Please state your name for our audience.
Anukhan: Anukhan. Think Anubis and Genghis Khan spliced together.
Liss: And your species is Jackal?
Anukhan: I am nothing like the creatures from your world. I am larger, faster, stronger. I can shift at will to stand upright as half man half jackal. It comes in handy for scaring your kind into submission.
Liss: What is your age, please?
Anukhan: It is of no matter to you, human.
Liss: Ok. Do you have a favorite food?
Anukhan: I enjoy feasting on the less fortunate.
Liss: You don't scare me, Anukhan. You agreed to this interview, please answer the questions. Have you ever been to the human realm?
Anukhan: I've seen it. You humans should be careful of the weapons your make. They could be your undoing.
Liss: No doubt. Are you a morning person?
Anukhan: Yes. I do my best plotting in the morning.
Liss: What are your hobbies?
Anukhan: Let's see. Is orchestrating revenge a hobby? If so I do it often.
Liss: You are a powerful king in the monster realm. Why would you need to plot revenge?
Anukhan: Why should I tell you?
Liss: I'm sure you're not afraid to tell me. What could I do anyway?
Anukhan: I'm sure you know there is bad blood between the Bullclan and myself.
Liss: I heard it mentioned.
Anukhan: There you have it.
Liss: Do you have a dark secret or at least darker than the one eluded to prior?
Anukhan: I have many secrets, the darker the better. Perhaps I should demonstrate. *Attempts to grab Liss. Hand glides through without touching*. You are a reflection!
Liss: I thought it wise to deal with you in this form, courtesy of a few monster friends of mine.
Anukhan: You are a coward!
Liss: I am cautious and with reason.
Anukhan: You may be safe for now.
Liss: I'll take my chances. Final question, Anukhan. What annoying habit do you have that drives others crazy?
Anukhan: I have an annoying habit of getting what I want. You are fortunate. I have no interest in you for now.
Liss: Indeed. Thank you for your time, Anukhan
Anukhan: Perhaps the next time we meet, it will be in person *wicked smile*
Liss: I don't think so . . . *reflection dissolves away*
