Interview with Royer the Voyeur…

 

1.       Where are you from?

Canterbury, England

 

2.       How would you physically describe yourself?

Fairly tall, redhead, sun kissed.

 

3.       Does you have any distinguishing speech characteristics or recurring mannerisms?

I have a good old upper class English accent, speaking the Queen’s English!

 

4.       What’s your motivation?

Save the world a bit. And have adventures!

 

5.       What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

My knowledge and academic background, my experience, and sense of adventure are my greatest strength. My greatest weaknesses is the Crow curse, magnified by that same sense of adventure!

 

6.       What do you love? What do you hate?

England and South America I love. And I have a passion for art and antiquities. I don’t hate much, perhaps ignorance.

 

7.       How would you describe your mental and emotional state?

Fairly solid, a bit feisty at times. However, the second sight can make me quite crazy!

 

8.       What do you fear the most?

The things I see beyond this world!

 

9.       What is your greatest ambition?

To discover the lost cities of Gold!

 

10.   How does you feel about the state of the world and your place in it?

It depends where you are in the world. There are some areas that are simply terrible, ravaged by war and corruption. But I think I am positive about the state of the world in general. My place in it is like everyone else’s, to make it a little bit better.

 

11.   Do you have any prejudices? How do you get along with others?

I don’t. If history has taught me anything its to accept lots of different cultures. I generally get on fine with most people.

 

12.   Where do your heroes loyalties lie? In what order?

I have a patriotic streak, but more than that I have a loyalty to the British Museum and all the people that work there. In fact, I am loyal to Museums and Universities all over the world!

 

13.   Do you have a lover or partner?

No

 

14.   Do you have a family? What is the relationship there like?

I have an extended family and many distant relatives. The relationship is mixed. It tends to be respectful and there is some loyalty to the family, but we are a mixed bag of feisty people, so there is always some friction.

 

15.   How would the people closest to you describe you?

Feisty, bold, adventurous.

 

16.   Are you a role model?

I think so. To get out there and explore the world!

 

17.   How spiritual are you?

I am technically Church of England but I am not practicing. I think quite deeply about existential issues but I do not believe in an omnipotent, benevolent God.

 

18.   Are you part of a team, or you like to be? Why?

No, and I have mixed feelings about that. I like companionship, and the bonds of friendship. But on the other hand I don’t want to be tied down. Perhaps a loose affiliation of like minded people would suit me better.

 

19.   How do you feel about the place of metahumans and aliens on Earth?

Potentially dangerous. They do need to be monitored and observed, like anything that powerful.

 

20.   If you could give one piece of advice to yourself, what would it be?

Better a day as a lion than a lifetime as a lamb.

London and Canterbury I suppose. London is vast and varied. Canterbury is a beautiful old town.

 

Growing up, were most of the people you knew similar to you, or were you somehow a minority? How did that affect you?

Well I come from a rich family so that was unusual, but I went to private school so many of the students there were rich.

 

Is there something you've always been really good at or really bad at? How has that affected your life?

I have always been good at exploring, even as a child! I can’t sing. Tone deaf!

No. Honesty is the best policy. Except for having snake blood, of course. Best keep that a secret…

 

If you do have these secrets, what do you fear would happen if the truth became known? How far would you go to protect those secrets?

Honestly, not much. Maybe a few insane cultists knocking at my door. I don’t go spreading thes secret, but if it comes out it comes out.

Not as an adult. A few minor infractions as a child.

With great pride, I think.

 

Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what are their names? Describe your relationship with them.

Do you have a best friend? If so, how did they become your best friend? How close are you to your best friend?

No, not best.
