Interview with Character Peri Reed from Kim Harrison's THE DRAFTER

We’re thrilled to be talking to Peri Reed from Kim Harrison’s, The Drafter.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

I’m a special task agent for Opti, and if I told you what I do for a living, I’d have to kill you. Just kidding! My partner, Jack, and I work for the government as espionage agents to further the United State’s interests at home and abroad.

Where do you go when you are angry?

Anywhere Jack isn’t, but the sensory sauna at the executive gym in my building is a favorite. I usually set it for the Arizona hot springs.

What is your greatest fear?

I don’t like to be alone. At all.

What is the trait you most dislike about yourself?

Though I won’t admit it to anyone other than an Opti psychologist, I dislike forgetting. It’s not the simple, “I forgot to feed the cat,” kind of forgetting, but more like the “who are you, and why are you in my kitchen?” kind of forgetting. It is tied to my job, and my partner, Jack, can usually bring most of the lapses back, which is why he’s my partner, but I hate looking stupid.

What are three must haves when shopping at the grocery store?

Stinky cheese, strawberries, crackers, and a nice bottle of wine. And cat food—for the cat. That’s five. Sorry.

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?

I wouldn't mind being a few inches taller.

Are you a loner or do you prefer to surround yourself with friends?

I’m a loaner, mostly because the government found me when I was in my early teens. Most of my friends when I was growing up were older than me, but I do have a solid core of associates, and a few dear friends.

Who is your best friend?

My best friend is Jack. He knows me better than I know myself.

Do you have children?

No, and I never will. I’m too afraid that they will be like me.

What is your favorite weather?

Sun, sand, wind, and water.

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

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to work for the government. They pay me well, keep me doing what I want, let me push my limits, and the technical toys are to die for.

What is your most treasured possession?

I have a shelf full of what anyone else would call knickknacks, but each and every one of them holds a memory I do not want to forget. If I ever do, Jack can help me remember them using the talisman.
