01. you are the child of...?
Do I really have to do this? I just don't feel comfortable talking about this sometimes and I just have a lot of mixed feelings--bloody hell, fine, my father is Xavier Anglicston. He fills one of the seats in parliament. He's also a huge arse.
02. now has your parent more recently entered the public's eye or have they been apart of your country's politics for some time now?
My family is a long line of government officials and that kind of stuff. It's family tradition I suppose. My father has always been in politics... and I hate him for it. No, actually I hate the way he views politics and... being his son is no walk in the park, I can tell you that.
03. do you plan on following in their footsteps?
I do, in a way. My father's a huge advocate for all the wrong things. I'd like to "become the stain in the Anglicston name" in his words. There are many "radical" and "liberal" things that need to be added into this country and really every other one. I support the freedom of speech and I believe that the government is hiding too many things from its people. If we are a commonwealth, why are so many people ignorant of the things our government does. I, for one, am not blind.
04. what other interests do you have?
Journalism and I'll admit I like playing the piano. TV shows I'm partial to are Sherlock and Doctor Who.
05. what do you think of when you hear the organization liberare populum?
This is hard. I almost support them. But that would mean the destruction of my family and I wouldn't it? Despite everything, I love my family, even my dad. He'll be the politician I hate, but at home, he's still my dad--not that I'm home a whole lot anyways. I have a lot of thoughts I sometimes can't voice aloud and they make up a lot of those thoughts. I want reforms, I do. For the most part we have gotten a lot of them over the years, but nothing's perfect. When it comes down to it Liberare Populum probably won't achieve their goal, especially with their ideas of how to execute their plans.

01. where are you from?
Hi, and well, there's no easy way to say this; I'm not really from anywhere. My family wasn't really known for settling down in one place. Probably because when you're wanted everywhere… My accent tells me United States, though, perhaps that just tells where my family is from.
02. what makes you think you can protect the world's future leaders?
I was trained to destroy them, so protecting should be a slice of pie. I mean, being trained in every way to kill someone and learning how to participate in covert ops, I know a few tricks that assassins might play. I'm pretty handy with a gun, knife, and/or a bow and arrow, which is a little pretentious, at least it is to me. my aim is spot on though. My eyes know where to look and my body instinctively understands. And just recently I've learned how to protect.
03. what is one way you can think of taking down liberare populum?
What I've learned is that you attack from the inside. Without a beating heart, a body doesn't function.
04. how did you end up in the protectors program?
My family is composed of trained assassins, myself included. I've been taught how to take a life without flinching since I was 7. Now, sometimes being a hit man isn't raking in enough money for my family, so what happens is intricately planned heists. One day, my dear family just sort of left me behind, oops. Somebody thought I'd make a good protector, so here I am, training to become one. No one's missing me here.
05. please share your feelings on liberare populum.
Must I really?... okay. Liberare Populum is insane. I don't know if they realise this, but half the people are not looking out for the good of their country. I know there are horrible people out there because my family is some of them. They are friends with the others! I just really don't like conflict, which is weird for me, right? After all I could think of 10 ways to kill anyone off the top of my head. I just want Liberare Populum gone, maybe then they'll at least let me pretend to be normal.
