Interview with Farran de Clare
Taken from the Urban Girl Reader Blog during the Immortal Hope Blog Tour.
Name: Farran de Clare
Profession: Knight Templar
Age: Over eight hundred years old
Height: 6’ 2”
Hair: Shoulder-length blond hair
Eyes: Ale Brown
Farran: The Order is in upheaval, but Anne, the Lady du Loire, has given many hope. The trials ahead will not be easy, but with the appearance of the seraphs, we are not guaranteed to fail. At present, we seek to protect Anne, while we await the next seraph’s coming.
Farran: So long as she is not paired with me, I am most anxious for her discovery. The Order needs her. The prophecy of the seraphs must be fulfilled if any are to survive this accursed fate.
Farran: (His ever-present frown deepens.) Milady, wives are a trial and a hindrance. I have no wish to be chained with such a burden or be forced to bed with a viper.
Farran: If you wish to exchange pleasantries, best you seek out Declan. Whilst he still possesses the means to laugh. I assure you, you shall not find them with me.
Farran: He took it as many did, and with the Almighty’s grace, he shall maintain. But he has drawn within himself, and keeps to himself much of late. I suspect his dismay is greater than he wishes us to know.
Farran: Nay. Merrick has asked me to join him in searching for her. We shall do so once Lady Anne recovers from a bout with the flu.
Farran: By Merrick’s order, we are not allowed to speak of Tane.
Farran: Discussing the relics openly gives Azazel power and insight. I shall not run the risk of granting him advantage.
Farran: (After a moment of intense scrutiny where I’m sure Farran’s stared so hard he can read my thoughts, he finally speaks.) Aye, you are correct. To progress with his unholy plan, he must decode the cipher of the archangels. The knowledge he requires is written in an ancient cloth.
Farran: I am not manipulated so easily, damsel. Were I to share that information, Azazel would know whom to watch. Or whom not. If you are wise, you shall cease your digging now, afore he decides to come after you.
Farran: “Mayhap you are one of few whose bite lacks a woman’s venom. Good day, damsel.”
