Character Interview: Sebastian from Christi J. Whitney's 'Grey'

We’re thrilled to be talking to Sebastian from Christi J. Whitney’s, Grey, book one in The Romany Outcasts Series.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Sebastian.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Hey, thanks for having me. Well, I’m eighteen, so pretty much school is what I do for a living, unfortunately. But I’ve got plans to work in my brother’s tattoo shop after I graduate, so I’m looking forward to that.

What would I love the most about you?

Okay, well…I thought this interview might be a little more about other stuff that wasn’t quite so…ah, personal? Um, could we maybe not talk about me? That’s just all kinds of awkward.

What makes you laugh out loud?

Okay, much easier question to answer. Definitely those stupid cat videos on the Internet. Yeah, my friend Katie shows them to me all the time. She’s got a cat obsession. Also, I’m partial to Monty Python.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

My brother Hugo’s not the best with household duties, and that includes basic stuff. Like, you know, going to the grocery store. We’ve got some eggs and some milk that surprisingly hasn’t expired yet, so apparently it’s a good week. Also, plenty of leftover Chinese food. A box of pizza. Oh, and yogurt. I don’t really know why. Nobody eats it.

What is your most treasured possession?

Well, I’ve got this pretty old copy of Hamlet I picked up in a used bookstore in town. I don’t know why I even looked at it to begin with. The cover was all ripped. But honestly, it’s what got me into Shakespeare in the first place. Though it’s not something I really make common knowledge. My friend Avery makes enough jabs about my reading choices as it is.

What is your greatest fear?

I don’t really like thinking about stuff like that too much. It’s not that I don’t have any fears because I do. Plenty. I just…well…can we maybe switch topics? Thanks.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

Yeah, I think so. I mean, she gets into my head a little too much, and that’s kind of disturbing, but I have to give her credit. She’s done her research.

Who is your best friend?

Katie Lewis. She’s one of my favorite people, and not just because she brings me chicken biscuits before school, though that’s worth major points. Seriously, though, Katie took pity on me my first day of school here two years ago and made me feel welcome. She’s great…even if she does keep trying to set me up with people.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I don’t really remember much about my past, and actually, I’d prefer not to talk about it, if that’s okay. Next question?

What’s your idea of a perfect meal?

Probably an all-you-can-eat buffet. Preferably with lots of meat. And pizza. Oh, who am I kidding? I’ll eat basically anything you put in front of me. Just ask Hugo.
