Character Interview with Helen!

Today we’re talking with Helen from No Life Only Death. Known only as Helen, not Cher, she battles her way through life. It was a bit daunting interviewing a killer who fights aliens. I guess, what else is there to do when you’ve lost everything. To her, it’s all about survival. A jet fighter and master in weaponry and hand-to-hand combat, Helen will do whatever it takes to stay alive and annihilate as many aliens as possible. If you’re an odd one, don’t let her see it.

Me: If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?

H: Beach trip

Me: What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?

H: Tough as nails, still tough as nails

Me: What’s your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that’ll happen in your life?

H: There is no such thing as a good marriage. Even if there is I will never be in a normal one.

Me: What are you most proud of about your life?

H: Surviving

Me: What are you most ashamed of in your life?

H: I am ashamed of being drawn into other’s agendas. I am stronger than that.

Me: If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?

H: I do not admire anyone. Admiration sets you up for disappointment.

Me: Do you think you’ve turned out the way your parents expected?

H: The opposite.

Me: What do you believe about God?

H: If you cannot touch it, it does not exist.

Me: Is there anything you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done? What would happen if you did it?

H: I learned long ago not to have dreams and high expectations. Nothing expecting nothing lost.

Me: What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?

H: Dying and being reborn. I learned not to take shit from anyone.

Me: Tell me about your best friend.

H: No friends. An occasional work partner but I don’t trust people enough to call them friends. I suppose Phillip and Gabe could count as friends. I trust them to watch my back.

Me: What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done to someone?

H: Letting them think they have a chance with me. Getting their hopes up and shooting them down the second I got what I needed.

Me: What would you like it to say on your tombstone?

H: I don’t want one. Earth has too little land and too many people and issues to bury people. Incineration is the only way to go.

Me: Describe your ideal mate.

H: Able to watch my back. Who can read me just by seeing my face. Someone who knows what I am capable of and accepts that I am likely as bad-ass or even capable than they are.

Me: What are you most afraid of?

H: Nothing. I left my fear of death behind years ago. Now the only thing to fear is fear itself.

Me: What’s the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?

H: I do not have any possessions I cannot live without.

Me: What do you like best about yourself? Least?

H: I like my mastery of so many martial arts and weapons. I least like my breasts. B cup makes me a less efficient assassin.

Me: Are you lying to yourself about something? What is it?

H: My goals in life. I am lying to myself about what it will take to end this.
