Runaway Girl Blog Tour (Post 3 of 3)

Runaway Blog Tour (Post 3 of 3)

Character Interview: Damian

When I offered to do this blog tour, I had no idea where it would lead. I got so much great stuff while working with Elaine that I asked for more than just my original day. One of my personal favorites is this character interview. First, I love the character Damian. And second, I think a character interview is a really cool idea! Read on and enjoy, then be sure to check out the other blogs in the rest of the tour. Thanks so much for being a part of this blog tour with me! ~Stephanie

Interviewer: Has it been easy for you to adjust to your new life?  
Damian: Not really. It’s helped having Kaitlin, but there’s a lot about being an elder and a clan leader than I never knew before. It will take time and I will need the patience of a saint, but I hope to do the job justice.

Interviewer: When did you know you wanted to become the leader of the clans?  
Damian: I can’t pinpoint an exact date, but it was probably sometime long after I realized Amelia never loved me. I knew that to be leader, it would mean we would have to be united and as much as that was a good thing for me back then, I was more worried about what she would do to the clan if she took over. I saw things in her that I didn’t like and at that point Matthew hadn’t come along. I guess I just realized that I cared more about the security and continuation of the clan, than I did about Amelia. That made up my mind.

Interviewer: Does Kaitlin understand about your feelings for Angela and Amelia?  
Katie’s been great. She really gets that Lucius wanted my union with Amelia so badly that he resorted to using my own gift against me. She understands that I was vulnerable enough to fall for it after Angela was gone. Apparently, though, she really likes the fact that I still love Angela. That I always will. I think it’s something she understands because she feels it. Katie feels something for the Island, where she was born that is almost like a mother/daughter bond. She missed it and loves it still, but she can’t ever go back. That’s how it feels about Angela. I love her and miss her and she’ll always be a part of me, but she’s in my past and I can’t ever bring her back. I think it’s just another thing that Katie and I have in common. We feel things very deeply.

Interviewer: What is it like, having Trey as your best friend?  
Damian: It’s a real blessing. He’s so much stronger than I am. Without him, I’m not sure I would have survived the centuries. I starved myself for a long time, for a few different reasons and he was always there to look after me, to force me to feed if need be. He’ll always be my best friend.

Interviewer: What is the most important thing you hope to achieve as leader? -
Damian: Peace. That’s all I want. For years we’ve gone in a loop, between being hated, having to hide from the world and being hunted, then being exposed and targeted. I just want humans to realize that we’re not monsters. We’re not going to annihilate them from the earth and we don’t have to kill. I want to make sure that we can exist, peacefully, in harmony together rather than being afraid of one another.

Interviewer: If you could go back and make sure Amelia never killed you, would you do it and never become a vampire?
Damian: Never. I might have gone through centuries of hell, but I haven’t felt anything as strong as what I feel for Katie, since Angela. I know that if I went back and Lucius never turned me, I could continue my life with Angela and she would never have died and left me alone. But you can never tell how things might turn out. If I went back, there’s no guarantee that she wouldn’t die anyway, or that Amelia wouldn’t have come into the house and slaughtered us all in our sleep. I wouldn’t give up what I have with Katie for anything. We’ve got the rest of forever together, just the two of us and we can have children and we can have any life we want. I won’t ever let anything happen to Katie; not even if I could have Angela instead. And Angela would understand that.
