Nadia Sylvan Answers Your Questions! #fantasy #vampires

Cover Art by Alison Hunt

Nadia Sylvan is the Lady of Nyte and a character that I haven’t done a lot with in terms of development.  She’s going to have a big role, but is more of a subtle character when compared to the combat ones.  Check out more of her in War of Nytefall: Lost.

Victoria Zigler asked: Is there a reason why moths are your preference when you turn in to a swarm?

They are like nocturnal butterflies.  So beautiful and enchanting, especially when they gather in one place.  Most people think of rats and cockroaches when they hear about swarming creatures.  I prefer to show the beautiful side of such things, which suits my personality much better than turning into vermin.

L.Marie asked:  What do you miss about being a warrior? What do you love about being a noble?

  1. To be honest, there is very little I miss about being a warrior.  The thrill of combat got old and I found myself seeking more relaxing pastures.  Besides, why should I get my own hands dirty when I can have people fight for me?  Leave such violence to those who refuse to settle into a more passive life.  To be fair, people like me will always need warriors among our allies, so do not think I am insulting the trade entirely.  I have merely outgrown the lifestyle.
  2. As you may have guessed, I love being able to relax and spend my days enjoying the beautiful parts of life.  Good food, beautiful dresses, dancing with my husband, and the list of indulgences goes on.  The respect that I receive from ruling is definitely a benefit, but I will admit that it can be tiresome.  All the bowing and blind obedience makes it difficult to hold lengthy conversations with most of the people in Nyte.

C.S. Boyack asked: Do you ever miss some of the simple joys of being alive?

I never understood what the simple joys were, but I do have moments where I wonder if immortality is worth it.  Although, being happily married for eternity makes one not thing about the alternative that often.  Perhaps a few treats and feeling drowsy might be on the list.  To be honest, I cannot quite remember what counts as simple joys after so many centuries of life.

Deby Fredericks asked: Nadia, of all the supernatural creatures you work with, who can you trust or not trust?

Creatures is a term that makes this question a little more difficult.  It denotes that we are wild beasts, but I digress.  There is very little difference between the way I trust than how mortals do so.  I have people I would trust with my life such as my husband, Lou, and the rest of my inner circle.  Others, I have reason to keep at a distance because they wish me harm.  It really comes down to the intentions and history of the person you are dealing with, which takes time to unearth.  This is why I remain cautious of those I do not know and make a decision after some prying.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    More great questions and answers. The preference for moths is a lovely touch.
