Hello Eri. What is your biggest vulnerability? Do
others know this or is it a secret?
Well, I have the Calling, which is an internal link to the man-eating beasts roaming out there, waiting for us. Sometimes I can't help myself when they come near our village borders, my body fills with rage, and I end up running toward them. The problem is, I'm a teenage girl and only male Protectors are supposed to have the Calling. My best friend, Finnley, he knows about me. And so does Grayson, but I shouldn't talk about him, nor do I want to.
What do people believe about you that
They think I'm normal. I'm anything but normal. I wish I was normal.
What would your best friend say is your
fatal flaw? Why?
I would say my fatal flaw is that I'm a girl. Because of this, I can't be a Protector. Finnley would think it's how stubborn I am. But he's wrong.
What would the same friend say is your
one redeeming quality? Why?
He thinks I'm stronger than I am. I'm not strong at all. I'm at the mercy of the beasts and the emotional turmoil they bring. If I was strong, I would be able to control it, and I can't.
What do you want most? What will you do
to get it?
I want to be a Protector. I don't know what I would do to get this opportunity, I'm a teenager, what can I do? I just hope I don't end up in front of a beast without knowing how to defend myself properly. The odds are against me.
