War of Nytefall Interviews- Chastity and Mab: Friends to Enemies and Back Again #vampires #fantasy

It’s another Monday in October, so I’m going to present two more characters from War of Nytefall to answer questions in the comments.  Hopefully, this gets a lot of responses and we have some fun.  To check out the books in this series, here are the links:

  1. War of Nytefall: Loyalty
  2. War of Nytefall: Lost
  3. War of Nytefall: Rivalry

Today, it’s Chastity Sullivan and Mab who get to join us.  Since Mab was part of last week’s interview, I’m not going to post her bio again.  She’s going to reappear during the last one too and Chastity will be back with us next week.  This is getting confusing.  To get a refresher on Mab, check out her interview alongside Clyde.

Chastity Sullivan is the owner of the Scrumptious Siren, which is a cupcake-shaped building surrounded by trees.  Living within the trees are vampiric hummingbirds that do her bidding.  Back in the early days of being in Clyde’s gang, she was a seductive information gatherer and made money from blackmailing others.  Now, she runs a bakery, tavern, brothel, inn, and, most recently, hot spring establishment.  Being on top of a hill, the Scrumptious Siren goes underground and has different rooms that she is always adding to.  Her bakers are charmed goblins who make a wide variety of treats.  Chastity has very little shame and her favorite dress has pink hand prints that will change to match whoever has perked her interest.  Her powers include endless stamina, telekinesis, and a charm mist that she can unleash from her pores.  She is always looking for mischief, new business ventures, and sources of pleasure.

Way back when, Chastity joined the gang after Clyde saved her from an abusive sire.  At first, she bunched heads with Mab because both have alpha personalities.  They quickly became friends since Chastity was able to learn about treasures that appealed to the thief’s love of money and challenges.  This friendship went sour after Mab talked to Chastity about her upcoming anniversary with Clyde.  A misunderstanding happened where Chastity thought Mab wanted her to seduce Clyde and then switch places, but that second part didn’t happen.  After the Great Cataclysm, one couldn’t even say Chastity’s name around Mab without setting her off.  This all changed as they became Dawn Fangs, fell into the same trap, and had to depend on each other for survival.  Now, Mab still throws insults at Chastity, but there isn’t any malice.

Note:  Mab has repeatedly challenged Chastity to fights.  She never wins because Chastity immediately uses charm magic to end what she thinks is a waste of time and energy.

So, ask your questions and we’ll see what happens.

  1. Chastity: what’s the most popular thing your bakery makes?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Chastity- That’s a tough one because everyone has different tastes. I try to have the goblins vary the menu from day to day. We’re always adding suggestions from patrons regardless of the silliness. I always let the first batch be free as a test because charging for food poisoning is wrong. I’m stalling for time, so I would have-

      Mab- It’s the chocolate pies. She sells about eighty of those a week.

      Chastity- My records say I only sell seven-five of those a day at most.

      Mab- Oh . . . To be fair, I don’t pay for the 5 I snatch as I pass through. Maybe it’s the cupcakes that everyone likes?

    Chastity and Mab—What do you like most about your life? Why? What do you do to improve your skills? Do you train?


    • Mab- That’s a lot of questions. Can’t really pick one thing to like most. Life is busy and always changing. Can’t say I train to improve my skills either. I find that experience in the world gets me further than studying or practicing alone. You learn a lot of tricks when in a pinch.

      Chastity- I’m with Mab on the first question. I do a lot and picking one aspect of my life is impossible. They’re all enjoyable or I wouldn’t do them. I do something similar with my skills. They have to be adapted for every patron, so I remain fluid. There are times I practice my telekinesis to increase the weight I can carry, but I make sure to have it be useful like unpacking inventory.


  3. Why place the bakery/tavern/brothel back in the forest? Seems to me like town would be a better location.

    Liked by 1 person

    • Chastity- It’s not exactly in a forest. There’s a hill that the Scrumptious Siren sits on top of, so it can be seen from far away. I have a cleared path to the main road that is on the other side of the forest as well as my stables being on the other side of the road. The entire area is really mine, so I can make additions. Can’t do that in a town because of red tape. It’s also very hard to maintain the vampire and mortal nature of my business when you have neighbors. Hard enough making sure the mortal clients don’t realize they’re sitting next to predators in a neutral location.

      Mab- Couldn’t you charm politicians to let you get away with stuff?

      Chastity- Wouldn’t work because I have the blackmailing and information network side of things. If they have something on me like breaking a few local laws then I can’t get very far with them. Nothing is ever easy in these businesses.

  4. Chasity and Mab. You tease each other a lot is there one thing that each of you admires about the other?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Chastity- She’s cunning and never gives up. I always had respect for her because she’s tough. I enjoy getting a rise out of her, but it’s usually in the hopes of getting her to reveal her true emotions.

      Mab- She makes good treats.

      Chastity- That’s it?

      Mab- You have a knack for getting information that other people can’t find, which helps me in heists. You’re definitely the most human vampire I’ve ever met, which keeps the rest of us in line. I’m not really big on complimenting others in public.
