Character interview to Ashley’s World (Memories in a box)
Ashley’s World has done a short interview with character Leonhard from “The Night ofElisa”, a Gothic/paranormal novella written and illustrated by Isis Sousa.
This interview may contain spoilers!
1 – Leonhard, can you introduce yourself to the readers; tell a bit more about your life and what you do?
Leo: Hmm… Hell-o Living ladies and gentleman, readers of Ashley’s World! I live in a world far away from yours, where it is always cold, but not too cold and the skies are always red, where the birds have ceased singing and the wind has never blown. I’m a painter with a fascination for human anatomy, the darker traits of human mind and oh, dear… This is basically it.
2 – When did you start painting? Can you tell us more about your art?
Leo: Oh, that was… long ago… Several centuries ago in the time of The Living. I had a master called Dürer and he taught me how to craft my oils, brushes and prepare the canvas and the wood as well as rules on perspective, composition and he always helped me with my studies of anatomy. My art, it is… changing… I always had a fixation for this particular… subject. Graziella. But now… Things are different…
3 – When you’re not painting, what other things you like to do? Do you have any hobbies?
Leo: I love reading a good book. I read every single night in my lonely bed. Did I just say lonely bed?! Oh dear, these – interviews – can lure you into revealing too much of yourself! I like to help my beloved friends Gerania and Iphigenia on preparing the meals in my humble mansion. I like to stroll alone every late evening and I like to savor a certain red drink from times to times.
4 – What’s the most important thing in Death for you?
Leo: In my first Death or second Death? Well, in my present Death, apart from my art… I’d say my best friends, the memories of Graziella and… She. The most delicate soul I ever touched, the most beautiful and mysterious pair of eyes, the reddest lips, the silkiest skin, the finest little hands, the most enchanting voice, the purest blood, my darling, myElisa.
5 – What’s your favorite band?
Leo: Is this some kind of joke!? There was no such thing as “bands” in the time of the story! But if you will, my dear… Those I identify myself most with are Therion, Paradiselost andTristania and some other dark music.
6 – Thank you Leonhard! It was a pleasure talking to you. Any last words for our readers? How can fans come in touch with you?
Leo: No last words, no goodbyes, please! The pleasure was all yours… Ops, I mean, mine! Thank you for your interest in my naïf life and for the delightful chat. Tell your readers they can get in touch with me when they knock at the door of the Afterlife. Hope to see them anytime soon! ^.^
