Weekend Writing Warriors: Sunday 9 March 2014 (Character Interview: Inside the Jump)

From the perspective of centuries, past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, and things have thus far worked out in my favor. I have had good advisers over the centuries, and Iric Desnaray yr Astok reminds me of them. Not entirely to be trusted, but no one is. I should say, the least unsatisfactory of the choices. Temn is formidable. I should like to make his acquaintance in person one of these days, after we conclude the business of the Outposts. 

Thus far he has expressed no interest in the Great Secret, but that’s only a matter of time.

The past is the best predictor of the future, and they’ve always asked.
