Interview with Gareth of Aletorp
Taken from Michelle's Book Blog during the Immortal Hope Blog Tour.
Name: Gareth of Aletorp
Profession: Knight Templar (European branch)
Age: 726 years old
Hair: Sandy Blonde
Eyes: Soft Brown
Gareth: Of course, damsel. You have but to ask. And when one is as fair as yourself, ‘tis no difficult chore to converse. I serve Raphael, the European commander of the Knights Templar. Mikhail is commander of the North American forces. Our roles are similar, but the knights who serve Mikhail are older. (He smirks.) Soon they shall be fat and lazy.
Gareth: Indeed. We are all sworn to guard the gates to Azazel’s realm and protect both mankind and the holy relics Azazel desires.
Gareth: Aye, ‘tis true our health is better, but the reasons we do not know. We are younger because we joined the Order just prior to its eradication.
Gareth: (Chuckling) At times.
Gareth: Several of Mikhail’s knights – Merrick’s sworn brethren – resent myself and my brothers. Let us say only that at times it becomes tedious.
Gareth: We have become such, aye. ‘Tis my understanding that I somehow spurred both she and Merrick together. I shall miss her greatly upon my departure.
Gareth: (shaking his head) The details were not shared with me. I suspect ‘tis told in IMMORTAL HOPE, Anne and Merrick’s biographies.
Gareth: Over time, man has made a few, shall we say, adjustments to the truth. At the core, the archangels are the same, but they carry many aspects of simple man, and in some cases their roles are different. For instance, damsel, Raphael. He is cited as the Master of Healing. In truth, ‘tis Uriel who heals.”
Gareth nods, and his grin flashes. “Indeed. You will learn far more than such, as well. There are many things that have been mistakenly recorded.
Gareth: Ask, damsel. I am willingly at your service.
Gareth: Ah, milady, only the mighty Gabriel knows the seraphs. Though perhaps… (a devilish grin lights his eyes) we might expedite Gabriel’s disclosure by investigating whether you might possess my mark? T’would only require the removal of your clothes.
