Shade (near the end of his saga)

1 - What is your name?

"Shade's what I call's not my legal name though."

2 - How old are you?

"I actually don't know...I woke up in a casket one day and I was already in my teens, biologically, so..."

3 - Where do you come from?

"It's...a bit hard to say."

4 - Are you married/in love?

"Actually...yeah. Things didn't work out, though."

5 - Do you have any children?


6 - What is your profession?

"Just a student. If one can count being in school for about a few days a year as 'being a student'."

7 - Do you have any secrets?

"A hell of a lot don't know."

8 - Who is your best friend/worst enemy?

"My best friend...well, I haven't seen him in a while, but Anders was mine."

He pauses

"My worst enemy...would the lord of all shadow be good?"

9 - What would you take out of a burning house?

"Anything I could--I wouldn't want to lose anything I value."

10 - Name three weaknesses and three strengths.

"As for strengths...I've definitely got an ability to handle death and the like, that others don't. I've got an intuitive ability with some things...and I've got powers, too. In shadow. For weaknesses...inability to assess weaknesses, I guess?

11 - If you could change 1 thing in your past, what would it be?

"I've been awake for about a couple of years, so...maybe ending the relationship with Zenith earlier, but..."

12 - What is your first thought in the morning?

"Oh, damn, painful."

13 - What are you terrified of?

"...being what I hate."

14 - What is the 1st thing on your Christmas list?

"I don't know...some art program or sketchbook and utensil set, I guess."

15 - What is the worst present anyone's ever given you?

Shade laughs "An almost cut to the face. It's not bad, in retrospect."

16 - Who would you want to talk to one last time?  What would you say?

"Definitely Zenith. Right now, when I might be about to die...I kind of want to tell her I love her. It's not like I'll be around for the corrosion effects of last time to set in."

17 - Would you consider yourself an angel or a devil?

"Honestly? I'm not sure."

18 - What would your 3 wishes be?

"To not have shadow-powers. Then I guess a chance to have an art career or something...then three more wishes

19 - What makes you angry?

"Bastards who don't let people live their lives."

20 - Would you like a hug?

"Not really."
