Character Interview: Tiny from Mike Hartner's I, Mary

We’re thrilled to be talking to Tiny from Mike Hartner's, I, Mary.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

I’m still Master and Captain of ships that belong to Crofter Shipping.

Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features? 

Tall, thin, I can see a long distance.

What would I love the most about you? 

Everything.  After all, I’m British. (and then he laughed)

What would I hate the most about you? 

Everything.  I’m British.

Where do you go when you are angry? 

Sailing. Why do you think I’m already a Master?

What makes you laugh out loud? 

People around me having fun.  Usually with new seamen who have no experience at all, and very little sense of sailing.

What is in your refrigerator right now? 

Refrigerator?  What is that?

What is your most treasured possession? 

Hmm… I think that the greatest gift that I’ve been given is a boat that I was given on behalf of Mary shortly after she died.

What is your greatest fear?   

MY greatest fears have already been reached.  My wife and my youngest child both died at the hands of the plague.

Do you have children? 

I have one child left.  And I have made him agree to stay on land, and never to come to the water.  He will take my place in the House of Lords when he comes of age.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?  

 If I knew I would die tomorrow, I would make every effort to ensure that the people around me would be saved.
