Question 1: What do you most want to achieve in life?
I think that once I’m no longer able to perform my duties as Constable Inspector, I’d like to be First Constable. I think that my experience on the streets can really help out with the younger constables, but since I don’t play politics, I think my chances of that happening are about as good as an oak’s keeping its leaves throughout the winter. Either way, I want to make a life with my wayward boyfriend, Aavril, who’s out gallivanting on a ship someplace at the moment.
Question 2: Who are the important people in your life: your friends and foes?
Aavril, obviously. Then there’s my mother, Aeollas, and my brother, Gale – well, his name is really Ghallen, but he was always such a terror when we were growing up that his nickname stuck. Since my father’s death, Mother and I have leaned on each other for support – even more so since Gale is stationed in the Smoke Highlands and rarely gets leave to visit. Cas, sorry, Castanea Rubus, was my partner for many years, though family matters forced her to leave Tenyl and take a position with the Constabulary in Narris. I miss her dearly.
I don’t know why you want to know about my foes. Trust me, being a Constable Inspector means that I have more than my fair share of them. I’d say that the biggest thorn in my side is Ailan Malvaceä, an Inquisitor with the Sucra, the King’s secret police. The Sucra are stuck-up snobs at the best of times, and are always a pain in the ass, but Malvaceä has elevated arrogance to an art form. I’d love nothing more than to catch him making a mistake and shove his nose in it.
Finally, there’s Ansee Carya, a Seeker in the Royal Tenyl Constabulary, who has apparently been assigned as my new partner. I really don’t know why the First Constable planted him on me. He certainly is not up to Cas’s standards and I have my doubts about his ability to do his job. Time will tell if he’s a friend or a foe.
Question 3: Do you have any hobbies?
Ha! Who has time for hobbies? Even on my days off from the constabulary (which are rare) I’m never really off duty. I barely have time to help Mother around her pottery shop, or to play with Gabii (my pet parrot), let alone finding the time to have an actual hobby… unless you count going to plays. Is that a hobby? I love attending plays, especially the cheesy ones that show naive adventurers trying to sack a dungeon and getting humiliated. Cas and I always made a point of going to at least one play every week, and afterwards we’d spend time at the pub talking about our favourite scenes and actors. Oh, how I miss Cas.
