Dear readers, tonight with me is an angel and a human woman. This isn’t the first time we interview such a duo, but this ‘Angel of Death’ is merely the professional moniker of a ruthless assassin.
Together, and with some unusual friends, they had to destroy a forsaken god. They are here to tell us of their adventures.
Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?
Michel Anglo: Well, their isn’t much to-
Vipa: Me first, me first! I was raised on Congla island after the Guilty One stranded us on an isolated island. Father died when I was just a baby, but Mom was an incredible huntress. Taught me to waterbend, hunt, and all that fun stuff.
Michel: Which I assure you which is abnormal. Where we’re from most people are work in factories or farms. My aunt and uncle adopted me and we lived in Kalaim. Almost became a factory work if it wasn’t for my… assassination skills. Good things too. Damn factory is as dangerous as this crazed huntress I’m working with.
Vipa: Says the guy who hunts the world’s most dangerous predator.
Did you have any favourite toys as a child? Any cherished memories?
Michel: I’m talking first this time, Vipa! Our family was poor, so there wasn’t too many toys. Yet my uncle got me a gun and a knife. Good for hunting and my friend used to play games just as knocking over cans who can piss off demons.
Vipa: That’s mean.
Michel: Hey, as my aunt said, ‘Demons have granite skin. You have easier time breaking iron.’
Vipa: Wow, that depersing. I used to have tons of friends and toy to play with.
Michel: I thought you lived on an island alone with my mother.
Vipa: Not just my mother. I have old Nubby the goat. Oh, we used to play tug war all the time. Oh, and then there this one time where mother left me alone in the woods when I was five. I cried so much, but then I made a doll and it kept me company. After surviving in the wilderness for a day, she gave me honey as an award.
Michel: *Stood dumbstruck for a bit.* Please never leave my children along with your mother.
Vipa: Why? She’s a good person.
What do you do now?
Michel Anglo: My real job is assassination, so I go around killing people. Not that complex, though I tend to spend week researching my target before going after them. Knowledge make life easy. As for my day job, I’m a sugar merchant. Spices and sugar are expensive and pay good.
Vipa: Now Michel help me hunt down the Guilty One.
Michel: Against my will! This crazed huntress is dragging me along for her crazed adventure.
Vipa: Which isn’t easy. You try tracking down a living island. Continue reading “Michel Anglo and Vipa (of God’s Forsaken, by David Brevik)”
