1.- Hello, and welcome to 20 Questions with Fourth Wall Magazine! What is your real name and nickname?
Samantha Grey. I don't really go in for the whole “Hero Name” thing. It's kind of silly, if you ask me.
2.- Very Nice to meet you, what is your current age?
26, give or take. Don't ask the secret of me looking young. It involves having a demon for a father.
3.- What is your alignment in the great never-ending battle of good and evil?
My what? … I'm more or less in the “Don't feel like dying in whatever global conquest scheme today's asshole is trying to pull.” So, 'good' I guess? Most people call me a good guy, I guess.
4.- What is the origin of your powers?
Part of it's the fact that I'm a cambion, half succubus. I was also trained in magic first by my mother and I picked up more power still when I stole the flame of Azrael back from my father. So, a lot of magic, a little biology.
5.- Now, superpowers and such aside, what do you feel is your greatest strength as a character?
Adaptable. I'm adaptable, and I bounce back even when I lose. I'm tenacious when it's important enough, so I will do whatever it takes to find a way forward.
6.- Here's what may be a bizarre question: What kind of Universe do you exist in? Is it serious? Comical? Sexy? Noir? Horror?
It's mostly serious, with a few comedians out there? I don't know, it seems pretty normal to me, though I guess I've seen a few other realities, and not all of them have costumed vigilantes with powers, so that's definitely a thing.
7.- A lot of super-people have certain recurring elements of tragedy in their background. The readers would like to know if you do as well. For instance, are your parents still alive and/or did you come from a destroyed planet? Stuff like that.
Man, this again? My dad was an insane, power-hungry incubus and Duke in hell, who used my grandmother, my mother and me as part of his mad scheme to turn the flame of Azrael into a corrupt power that would give him a chance to vie with Lucifer. That bastard tortured me, had me killed and brought back to life, murdered and violated my mother and sent demonic spirits to haunt me for years of my life. My younger years are a string of me getting murdered, fighting horrible battles he'd force me into and struggling against his plots. It felt like everyone in the world was against me until I found people who were able to get past me being part succubus. So, yeah. My life's a string of tragedies and horrors. My dad murdered my mom, stole her soul and tried to do the same to me, and the Thunder Force killed him with the help of my insane half-sister. My grandmother's pretty much a psychotic terrorist out to kill all monsters and anyone who sides with Britain owning a single acre of Irish land. Most of the tragedies are done, at least, for the moment. So that's good.
8.- Who made your costume?
I designed the outfits I wear, and the staff at the Thunder Force tower make them up for me.
9.- Do you have siblings?
I have a half-sister and half-brother. Brother's an incubus in hell and my half-sister is Diffido, Duke of Despair and Malaise, the current lord over the punishment of suicides in the Inferno. They're both total bastards, but at least they prefer to stay in hell, where they belong.
10.- What is your biggest fear/ worst nightmare?
Becoming my father. I think that would be the one thing that would hold me back from doing anything.
11.- Are you a solo act, or part of a team?
Been a member of the Thunder Force for years now, though I work solo and in pairs with allies often enough, as long as I'm not needed on the Force that day. I work better alone some days.
12.- Who is your worst enemy and why?
My father, and he's dead. I suppose there's another out there, someone who's been behind the scenes of everything, but I've had trouble getting their name clearly. (She is only nominally aware of the name “Asclepus the Lesser”)
13.- Then, who is your best friend?
I don't like calling one person a better friend than another. It usually ends poorly. I have a few friends, on or off the Force.
14.- Confession time: Who is your lover?
I'm currently single and bitter about it. I was in a relationship with Ja...Centauri, but that ended badly. Relationships with a half succubus tend to badly. That's everything I want to say on that.
15.- Existential question: What would you do if you could ever meet your creator?
...murder him. Slowly. Painfully.
16.- What is your lifelong dream?
You know, I used to dream of saving my mother's soul and killing my father. Right now, I'm a little unmoored, trying to find myself. I will live a very long time, and I'm not sure what I want out of that existence. If I could have a dream, it would be to be able to find something to live for, instead of simply survive, a purpose.
17.- What would you do if your dream came true?
It kind of already did, and here I am trying to figure out what to do next. Never let your dreams come true. You'll just be confused, looking for the next thing.
18.- As a character, do you have any personal demons or overarching regrets that haunt you?
Countless regrets. I've got more than a few skeletons in my closet from the old days, and I've been having a hard time making piece in relationships with my succubus side. If I fucked someone, there's probably a regret somewhere in that. I guess the only time I never regretted anything in the relationship is Dusk, but that ship will never sail in the long-run. She's got her path, and we just meet occasionally.
19.- What does your "secret identity" do for work?
I don't bother with secret identities. My family is dead, and my friends are Deviants like me, so there's no need. I don't think secret identities are a good idea usually, because as soon as someone realizes you're hiding it, it makes them want to target those people that much more. Make people realize it's a weakness and they'll exploit it. Secret identities are more dangerous for those people they're meant to protect.
So, the answer I guess is that my main identity is a civil servant? Weird, isn't it?
20.- Last question, and it's a DOOZY for a super: What is the WEIRDEST thing that has happened to you?
Fighting an intergalactic emperor in a space battle while wearing a space suit. Seriously, casting spells in space is probably one of the most surreal things, especially while my teammates are regaling me about odd little alien species.
No tags, but feel free to do this too if you like.
