Name of character to be interviewed: Spencer McCorkle
Why was this character chosen for this interview?:
The book is told from his POV. And, he brings a unique slant to all he sees.
Question 1: It is claimed that you’re a hunter, what exactly do you do?
Answer: I rid the world of vampires. I know that sounds kind of grandiose, but it’s true. Basically, I hunt down vampires and kill them. Usually, by completely draining them. Other times, simply by staking or beheading them. As long as they end up gone.
Question 2: How do you hunt them?
Answer: I track them, using a connection all vampires share with those of the same lineage. It’s called a Blood Link, and allows me to hone in on a vampire’s general vicinity, if they’re “related” to a vampire that I’ve already fed on. Once close, I use good old fashioned observation and detection to find the suck-facer in question and eliminate them.
Question 3: Suck-facer?
Answer: It’s what I call vampires. I can’t stand my undead brethren. In fact, calling them “brethren” would make me vomit, if I ate normal food. Suck-facer is a term of loathing that I came up with as a way of expressing that. It’s accurate, demeaning, and I can repeat the term in any social situation.
Question 4: So, you hunt other vampires, “suck-facers” because you hate them?
Answer: Exactly. If there was anyone who hated anything as much as I hate vampires, I would be surprised. If I could, I’d hunt them down around the clock, twenty-four hours a day. I can’t, though, so I do the best I can. And, to be honest, I do a good job.
Question 5: If you hate vampires so much, why did you become one?
Answer: I didn’t choose to be made undead. It was forced upon me. I was tortured, then made into a vampire, all against my will. Now, I figure the least I can do is repay that act by getting rid of as many suck-facers as I can.
