      What genre is it?

  • Who are you?
    • What is your name?
      • Amiel ra Aulden
      Are you a fictional or historical character?
      • fictional
      What’s your role in the story – are you the protagonist or a supporting character?
      • I’m an antagonist
      Are you a human, animal, alien, robot, or something completely different?
      • Human, of course
    • Do you consider yourself to be good, bad, or indifferent?  Would others agree with this assessment – why, or why not?
      • I’m a great leader and good guy. Not everyone will agree. To the people of Verena’s nation I’m probably seen as a bad guy. I took over her nation by force and the lords I entrusted some parts of it to conducted themselves poorly. The people probably don’t see me as a good ruler, yet. Of course, Verena is afraid of me, which I still don’t understand. Surely she realizes how much I love her. Why else would I still marry her after she jilted me and publicly humiliated me?
  • What do we need to know about you?
    • What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
      • My goal is to be a good king, to rule with Verena at my side. Ultimately, I hope to put the Gortive uprising down and help save the intergalactic alliance from the threat of the Nijar. Together, Verena and I will be the foundation of a new dynasty for planet Jorn.
      What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
      • The betrothal agreement is what is really challenging. I had to let it be reinstated because it turned out my own lords were behind the assassination attempt on my life. The biggest hurdle is how to rule with strength while having to share power with Verena. I don’t trust her to be a good ruler. She’s too soft hearted.
      Why is this goal important to you?  What’s your motivation?
      • I have always felt that I was destined to rule; to marry Verena and create a united kingdom over the continent of Vidden on our world. I know that I can forge a strong nation, and our children will rule after us.
    • If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be, and why?
      • At the heart of my trouble with Verena is my temper. I would never hurt her, but she has seen me rule with sternness and, I admit, a bit of violence, so she doesn’t trust me. If I could control my temper better, I think I can convince her to trust in my leadership.
