Ask-A-Character: Mab the Dark Mistress

Selene from Underworld

Selene from Underworld

Today I bring a newcomer to the blog.  Say hello to Mab the Dark Mistress.  For those who haven’t read The Mercenary Prince the day it came out (joking!), I’ll give a small explanation.  She is the Dawn Fang who is sent out to handle problems.  With the ability to move through shadows, she can travel across Windemere within minutes.  Not the friendliest of people, Mab takes her role very seriously.  Prior to this, she was the top lieutenant of Clyde the progenitor and before that she was his partner in crime.  Literally because she used to be a burglar before she was turned and for the first few decades after that.  After that, she became a deadly warrior and one of the defenders of the world that Clyde sought to create.

So, what can you ask Mab about?

  1. Being a Dawn Fang or vampires in general.
  2. Her role as the Dark Mistress.
  3. Opinions on the mortal life.
  4. Immortality
  5. Schtuff

Have fun.

    Mab, is there any drawbacks to be immortal? Anything inconvenient about being a vampire in general? Is it hard to relate to mortals now? What color would you be if you could be a color?


    • I’ve told I have to answer with more than one word. The only drawback to being immortal is if you have loved ones who aren’t. I guess you could run into trouble if you fall for a mortal, but that’s never been a problem for me. Kind of like dating a keg of ale if you ask me.

      Being a Dawn Fang doesn’t have many drawbacks beyond the ignorant trying to kill you. We’re not aggressive and it’s far too easy to kill mortals. If we come under attack then it’s really tough to hold back. Thankfully, one of my powers allows me to escape from such situations.

      Relating to mortals . . . relating to mortals . . . Some of my kind are better at it than others. I really don’t care. There are times I remember my mortal life, but it was centuries ago. I think what confuses me is how mortals have such limited time and waste most of it on tedium.

      I’d like to be bright yellow with vibrant pink polka dots . . . Yeah right. Black all the way. Before anyone rolls their eyes, know that I’m a former cat burglar. Shadows are my friends.

  3. So what made you give up cat burglary. Was it to seek more power or did you get tired of that role?

    Thank you Mab for giving us this opportunity to ask you questions. My question is how do you feel about mortals now that you have been turned?


    • Kind of like the annoying roommates that I have to live with. Eh, that’s probably too mean. Mortals are as varied as Dawn Fangs, so I can’t really do a blanket statement. Some are jerks that get themselves killed while others are fairly kind. The treaty that my people have with mortal-kind keeps everything civil. We take care of our business and you take care of yours.

      I will admit that those who pester me to turn them are very annoying. If someone is so unhappy with their life that they think immortality is the right way to go then they really don’t deserve the gift.

  5. Hi, Mab. Just stay over there, okay? My question is, mortals have goals and things to take care of because our time is limited. What goals do you have, with your theoretically unlimited time?


    • Staying alive, which isn’t as difficult as one would think. Being a couple centuries old, I do have people that want to test themselves against me. That’s a rather mediocre goal and I think you want something juicier. My goal is to make sure the Dawn Fangs stay out of trouble. I handle all rogue elements that threaten the truce with mortals. Not that I fear being killed in a war with them. More that it’s too easy for us to wipe everyone out and there’s no benefit to it. Kind of like killing every chicken on the planet and then complaining about being hungry.

      *cocks head to the side as if listening to someone*

      That goal stays between us. Mortals call those spoilers.
