It took a lot of persuasion, but Casper has finally consented to an interview. So here are the questions I put to him.
JN: What was your life like growing up?
C: Before I became a guardian angel, I lived in a village in what we now call Germany. Life was hard. We faced famine, bitterly cold winters and disease. It was almost a relief to go off to war.
JN: How would you describe your personality?
C: Quite laid back for a former warrior. Someone who’s been an angel for two thousand years gets in touch with their inner Zen.
JN: Do you have a motto or code you live by?
C: Do my job and do it well. My current job is caring for Allegra Fairweather. It’s full time work that keeps me on my toes.
JN: What one thing would you take to a deserted island?
JN: Where would you go on vacation?
C: To Allegra’s beachside house in Hawaii.
JN: What is your most distinguishing characteristic?
C: My golden wings.
JN: What is your major skill or talent?
C: Flying, appearing and disappearing at will.
JN: If you had to pick another career, what would it be?
C: I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than work with Allegra.
JN: Who are your closest friends?
C: My closest friends live on Cloud 9, but I can’t mention their names.
JN: What’s your favorite color?
JN: Favorite food?
C: Pit-roasted boar.
JN: Who do you love?
C: Do I really have to answer that? You know who she is.
JN: What are your future plans?
C: To spend more time with the love of my afterlife.
JN: Thank you, Casper. Readers can catch up with your latest adventure in Night of the Dark Horse.
