Interview with Chase

1. So, Chase, thanks for interupting your busy schedule to answer a few questions. Where are you just comming from?

Coming, going, it’s hard to tell these days. I just finished a training session with Marcus. I’m trying to get a handle on my elements…and my temper. 

2. If you could only have one element, which would it be and why?

Water. It helps to balance out all my other emotions. It heals wounds, but it can be as devastating as any flame. And my mom was a water elemental.

3. What was the best part of being in the Circle? The worst?

Now that I know the truth about everything, asking about the best part is like asking what the best part of having your ass kicked is. Don’t get me wrong, I have some great memories from my time in the Circle, but none of them are because I was in the Circle.

I guess the one good thing was I didn’t feel alone. I knew I had the entire hunter community standing behind me. Having that kind of backing is something I miss.

The worst part was the lack of freedom. I see the Circle like a prison now. They controlled everything, including the information we received. They fed us the facts they wanted us to have and we never got the full story.

4. If you were a car, what kind would you be?

Probably a 1967 Mustang Hatchback. 

5. Desert island. One friend and two Cd’s. What and who would they be.

Rayna. I’d bring Eminem’s Not Afraid, and Rise Against’s Siren Song of the Counter Culture

6. Being involved with the underworld, maybe you can tell us. Is Elvis really dead?

I’m not at liberty to say.

7. Pepsi or Coke?


8. How do shapeshifters afford all of those shredded clothes?

Charity? I really have no idea. I’m still new to the whole “just because they’re shifters doesn’t mean you can kill them” mentality. I think once they learn control, it’s easier, but lately we never know what’s coming.

9. If you could shapeshift, what animal would you be?

I’d love to be an eagle. They’re beautiful, majestic, and I think there would be something freeing about being able to soar through the sky above the rest of the world’s problems.

10. After leaving the circle did you go to school and get your diploma?

I couldn’t. Mom and I had never lived outside the compound, and rent in Stonewall isn’t cheap. We were only given enough money to live for a month, so we had to get jobs the moment we could. Maybe if I make it out of all this, I’ll have a chance to go back.

11. Name 5 cool things about Rayna.

Rayna never says no to a friend, she’s loyal, honest, has great taste in music, and she knows how to throw a punch.

12. Name 5 annoying things about Rayna.

She’s up early every morning and insists everyone else should be up too, she doesn’t let me get away with anything, she’s stubborn, constantly uses all the hot water, and she knows how to throw a punch…

13. 5 things that Rayna would say annoys her the most about you.

She’d reciprocate and say I’m stubborn, I wear the same clothes for too long, I don’t take training seriously, I react to things impulsively and unpredictably, and I always say things that make her hit me.
