Interview with Edmond Chancellor

Tell us about yourself. What are you like?
Edmond: I’m what’s called a rogue vampire, one who has broken ties with my family. I dislike being told what to do and I dislike judging others based on their species or being judged on mine.
What do you think is your strongest point?
Edmond: My ability to break away from my vampire family. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. Contrary to popular belief, vampires aren’t solitary and I’ve been quite lonely living as a rogue.
What would your author say is your biggest weakness?
Edmond: Tobias has been my biggest weakness since the moment we met. My author knows this.
What drives you to do the things you do? What makes you want to be the "good guy?"
Edmond: During the first few decades of my life, I was very much like my vampire family, infected by their violence and prejudices. In 1066, an event in my life changed everything. Since then, I’ve proved that vampires don’t need to kill.
If money were not an object, where would you most like to live?
Edmond: For me money isn’t an object and I’ve chosen to live in what I believe is the best town in the world, Whisper. I founded it, so I might be a bit biased, of course.
If you were a tool, what would people use you to do?
Edmond: I hope they would use me to protect those who need it.
Picture yourself as a store. Considering your personality and lifestyle, what type of products would be sold there?
Edmond: I’m an antiques dealer, so I actually have several stores. My favorite is here in Whisper and it specializes in antique weapons, in particular swords.
As a child, what was your favorite thing about school?
Edmond: I didn’t attend school like many children nowadays. I greatly enjoyed the study of swordsmanship.
Tell us a secret about your significant other.
Edmond: Tobias is the most beautiful, enticing, stubborn man I’ve ever met. He’s a cat shifter and doesn’t easily reveal his emotions to others, even to me. I know he might never pledge his heart solely to me, but I’m willing to wait and see.
If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
Edmond: Contents under pressure.

I love pizza with -- I can’t eat pizza. I’m on a liquid diet.
I'm always ready for defense against those who threaten Whisper.
When I'm alone, I wonder how long it will take before Tobias accepts my proposal.
You'd never be able to tell, but I want to be loved.
If I had a halo it would be frightening to think someone with my past could have a halo.
If I could choose one person to share my life I'd pick Tobias.
I can never return to my vampire family because they would demand I kill or be killed.
