Welcome, Fannar. Thank you for coming in to answer some questions.
A pleasure. I live to serve.
Not used to that one, but I’m still glad to have you here. I hear you have an interesting power that takes a hefty toll.
Indeed. The manipulation of elements can be quite draining. I freeze water. It, in turn, freezes me. It wasn’t always that way, bit it is now.
A birdie told me that you and your brother have a bit of a feud. Can you tell me about that?
He’s the reason my powers hurt me as much as they do. Because he skirted his responsibilities and needed someone to save him.
What role do you play in the council?
I run the Northern Division of the Internal Magick Protection units. Checks and balances. Ensuring protocol is not only followed but fair.
Did you always want to be a part of the council?
<He laughs.> No. I messed up pretty badly when I was younger…had a lot of making up to do.
I hear you have an interesting collection, what’s it of?
You hear a lot of things.
I do. It’s like a magickal power.
I have a couple thousand preserved snowflakes. It’s a bit of a niche, took a lot of practice to perfect, but it helps to channel our most basic natures.
Can you tell me about Alvilda?
She was special, but she had a self-destruct button. Too much energy to contain. <Emotions warred through his face.> She changed the way our mound runs now, about what we prioritize, about how we teach our children.
I’m glad to hear she has a legacy.
What was the first bit of magick you learned?
Keeping my food from burning my mouth. Took a long time before I got to eat warm food again.
Samurai or Ninja?
Ninja. It’s better to be fast than strong, and every fairy will tell you the same.
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be and why?
I’d be able to feel warmth again.
I hope you do, someday. Well, that’s it. Thanks for placating me, and I hope you come back to visit soon.
