Once a month we will be interviewing a new member of staff to find out a bit more about their character and the player behind the scenes. This week the SoMe team has been talking to Virgina King - the head of the werewolf clan.
Welcome back to Meet the Staff. Today, we will be chatting with the new head of the werewolves, Virginia King. She only recently became housetrained, I mean, took up the position, so this will be an exclusive peek into the new head and the lovely person behind the scenes. Enjoy!
Welcome Virginia and thank you for taking the time to answer all of my questions. I am sure our readers are excited to get the opportunity to get to know you better and perhaps reveal some of your darker secrets ;) Just kidding, but let's get started!
What is it like to be a werewolf for those who don't know?
In my opinion, it is really good. When the curse is triggered, you are still you most days. You only change into a werewolf at Full Moon, which truly hurts, but gets a little bit better over time. If your curse isn't triggered, you do not turn into a werewolf. Yet you can be aggressive at times, and it might be hard to feel such anger and not knowing where it comes from, not knowing you're a werewolf. It takes quite some time to get used to it and accept who you are (it is different for everyone, of course) but after that, you can live a long and happy life!
For those who don't know, is it possible to be turned into a werewolf or is it something you are born into?
You are born with the werewolf gene, yes. Yet you do not turn into a werewolf every full moon since the moment you have been born. In order to become a werewolf, you have to trigger the curse. The trigger is to take someone's life, it does not matter if it is an accident or on purpose.
Why did you choose to be head of the werewolf pack/clan?
Werewolves to me are amazing creatures. We, as a community, all have one thing in common: the pain you endure once a month. This brings us closer together. Every wolf in the pack is amazing, kind and sweet. We all have our own stories and I am truly happy to guide others on their journeys to acception and happiness. It feels like I'm some sort of Mama Wolf, is that lame? Haha!
What is one fun fact about yourself that not many people know?
Try not to laugh too hard, but I'm terrible at tying my shoelaces! It takes me some time and I have to redo it many times! I didn't even get my shoelacing diploma when I was very young.. sad! A fun fact about Virginia King: As a child, she got lost so many times! Blink for one millisecond and she would be off somewhere to play. Her parents would be worried sick all the time. She put way too much faith in others. She actually looks a lot like me when I was a child, but I didn't get those anger attacks like she did.
What's one thing that your character cherishes the most?
Virginia cherishes her family - a lot. Even though she is not in touch with her family any longer, she is very protective of them. Now she wants to channel those feelings onto the werewolves; they have more use to it than a family out of contact.
What is a life motto that you / your character goes by?
No matter how tough life gets, how lonely and how dark the clouds may be: there is a story written out for you and it will be a good one. At the moment it might not look this way, but all come with a reason. All of our characters have the luck (or not :P) that we make up our own story for them, we don't have that luxury. We won't know what comes to us until it does. We are living word for word, and that is scary. But know there is always someone looking out for you, no matter what. <3
If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
What are the winning lottery numbers? Haha, no. I used to ask myself this question a lot, but I'm not entirely sure to what question I would want the answer to. I mean, there are a lot, but do I really want to know? Don't I want to wait and see for myself? Or should I really ask for the lottery numbers?
What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?
I used to believe that my teachers lived in a separate town, specially made for them. I don't know if I made this story up myself or if someone else told me this, but I was very shocked when I saw my own teacher during grocery shopping! My dream was crushed since I wanted to become a teacher when I grew up so I could live with my favourite teachers.
Thank you, Virginia, for taking the time to answer my questions. It was a joy getting to know you a bit better!
Turn in next time we will be talking to her royal witchiness, the clan leader of the witches Alleria Cavendish.
