Keep reading for an interview with Salabane, a character from the book:
Where were you born, and what was it like growing up there?
Apparently, I was born in a small village called Lohlin. My earliest memories are of growing up in the Sanctuary with the priests.
Did you have a close relationship with your family?
I never knew any of my family growing up. For years I had assumed I was an orphan, my family gone.
What is the happiest memory from your childhood?
I don’t really have any. My time at the Sanctuary was pleasant and I was taught a lot, but there wasn’t really any time for fun. There were always chores to do.
Who was your best friend growing up?
I never had any, but if I had to choose, it would be the priests who taught me.
Who is your enemy?
My enemy is still unknown to me, but I will find him. It is the thing that drives me. He took away my chance of a normal life. He took away my family and made me what you see before you.
Tell us a little about your world, and where you fit in?
My world is like most other worlds. We have kings and queens, witches, sorcerers, good people, bad people and then we have those that watch down on us from above. The angels.
Me? I’m just a small person in a large world looking for revenge. On my quest, I will have to face those who most people fear.
What is the most important lesson you've learned about life?
That you can only depend on yourself. Trust no one and hold no one close to you.
Do you have a secret you've never told anyone?
We all have secrets, it’s part of being human. Unlike most, my secrets are too horrific to discuss in polite company.
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
I would change everything. I was made this way through circumstance and brutality. I would want parents and friends, but that is never going to happen.
If you had one day left to live, what would you do with your last day?
I hope that happens after I have found my enemy. My only goal in life is to find the one who made me and hold him accountable.
