Good Evening Guild Rats,
We made it… Friday! Say goodbye work, hello weekend!
For this Friday feature we caught with ‘Honour Among Thieves’ antagonist Amadeus Teufel.
Me: Hello Amadeus… err it’s nice to meet you.
Teufel: That’s General Teufel to you.
Me: Oh… I see. My apologies… General Teufel. You have been in the Duke of Rêves elite unit; the Ravens for a number of years now. Is this correct?
Teufel: Indeed. A family tradition. My father and his father before him all rose to rank of Captain in the auspicious rank. I am the first to reach General.
Me: Very impressive. And you are a man of considerable honour and take the role of protecting his Grace, Duke Alexandre incredibly seriously. Does it make it hard on your relationships with other outside of the job?
Teufel: I have no need for these relationships. They make a man weak. Friends are for the fragile. I have subordinates. Family is for the weak. I have my command. Love is for fools. I have respect…
Me: Err…. right well that clears up that question. But surely the amount of time you must spend in the Duke’s company, there must be some form of kinship there?
Teufel: Absolutely not! I am his servant, he is my master. I will protect him and his realm with my life. Extinguishing the flames of his enemies for they are mine!
Me: Ah… well now you’ve brought enemies up. The continent is going through a period of peace. This must make your life a little easier to know there is fear of war coming to Rêves?
Teufel: Are you a fool? Now is even more dangerous. As the years of “peace” roll by then so does ones anticipation. A sense of false security. It’s a classic trap. I’m am forever on the edge for any who might attempt any violence on my Duke.
Me: I see… Then this must be why you turned so aggressively on Kaiden when he came to Citadel Island and spoke with the Duke?
Teufel: DON’T YOU DARE SAY THAT NAME IN FRONT OF ME!!!!! THAT MAN IS A TRAITOR TO THE DUKEDOM AND THE ENTIRE COUNTRY! SCUM OF THE HIGHEST CALIBRE!
Me: Oh… I… well… didn’t know you’d go all…
Teufel: GET OUT OF MY SIGHT BEFORE I THROW YOU INTO THE CITADEL’S VAULTS TILL YOU CATCH THE ROT!!!!
Me: (running)…. why do these interviews always end in me running????…..
Well that was today’s instalment. I’ll be back on Wednesday to meet a new character in Wednesday Writings.
Until next time… Keep out of trouble (if you can)
