On August 4, Bellator: An Anthology of Warriors of Space & Magic released and this is the first of several character interviews from the short stories in it! I hope that you enjoy meeting the characters as much as I did!

A Chat with Carlisle of Feltrey

Bella: What is the name of the book where we’ll find you? Can you tell us a little about it?
Carlisle of Feltrey: I’m in “A Fly on the Wall” in the Bellator charity anthology. It’s a story about the time I went before the Redsun guildmistress, at the end of my apprenticeship, to receive my performance assessment.

Bella: Tell us a little about yourself. Where do you fit into the story? What should we know about you?
Carlisle of Feltrey: I was named after my uncle and hoped to follow in his footsteps as a mercenary fighter. I trained all my life for it, so I was excited at the prospect of becoming a full-fledged Redsun guildmember. I am an exceptionally skilled warrior so I figured my acceptance was a sure thing and I looked forward to serving the guild with great honour and dignity. – Oh, and I don’t like the nickname “Carly” even though some people insist on calling me that

Bella: What do you think of the author? Be honest. We won’t tell.
Carlisle of Feltrey: She could use some time training for the battlefield. She likes to play tough but she’s not as daring as all that. She spends far too much time with her head in the clouds instead of getting down to business, but she loves her family and she has a lot of noble ideas. I can’t fault her for that.

Bella: How do you feel about the story you’re in?
Carlisle of Feltrey: It was a painful time in my life but it taught me a lot about myself and my values. It was a necessary stepping stone to my greater achievements.

Bella: Do you like being a character in the book?
Carlisle of Feltrey: I love the concept of an anthology about warriors and it certainly supports a worthy cause.

Bella: How do you see your future? Without giving anything away about the story, naturally.
Carlisle of Feltrey: I see my future filled with opportunity and the chance to be the best person I can be. I’m proud that I stayed true to myself.

Bella: What do you know about your author’s plans? Can we expect to see you in any future stories?
Carlisle of Feltrey: My author plans to continue writing a variety of short stories and novels, including more in her dystopian series, Fervor, and her fantasy series, Masters and Renegades – which features my home city of Feltrey in the next book to be released, Victims of Circumstance. She may write my full story into a novel someday, if the demand is there.

Bella: Let’s say they make a movie about this book. Who do you want to play you, and why?
Carlisle of Feltrey: I’m not glamorous or anything. I’d like it to be someone tough and athletic who knows how to fight, so I’d like to see Gina Carano play me. I’m not as pretty as her, but they tend to doll you up in movies anyway. (actually – she does kind of look like me…and she was only 16 and unknown when that picture of me was drawn, so interesting likeness.)
