Holly: Hello, Dracon, thank you for taking the time to do this interview with me; I am sure you have more important things to do. Would you mind telling us a little bit about yourself?
Dracon: I am Dracon, of the ancient vampires. I am not turned, but descend from the ancient vamps who learned to walk the Mother Earth once more--escaping death himself.
Holly: It is my understanding that you are not a turned vampire, does this mean you were, erm, born?
Dracon: Shortly after Atlantis fell, some of our people, who were from the Crow People--from a planet close by to the Jaguar People--decided they would not die. The people lived over a thousand years at that time, so they were not use to the idea of dying.
We had lost our ability to rejuvenate--when we lost the stone that was the heart of our Mother Earth--so that when we died, some of us refused to cross over, but instead escaped into the 5th demension, into the Land of the Fae.
It took us over 100 years, by the turn of Mother Earth, but we learned how to walk back into Mother Earth with our bodies, but without the life-giving blood, we would not have survived. We developed a powerful craving for this blood--and in this way--we became immortal.
Because of the way we came back--the way we came to have a bodily existence--we rarely have children. But some were blessed. My parents were one such couple blessed. And I am one of these rare beings born--I am Dracon, Prince of Air.
Holly: Another thing I heard, is that you do not have much use for humans, surely that is not true as a vampire you drink blood, unless all those myths aren’t true?
Dracon: I do not have much use, or respect, for humans--since they arrogantly chose to believe that they are the only race in the galaxy--and as such, they use up our Mother--like there is no end to her resources. But we do not wish to harm the humans. In fact, the humans would do well to realize they would not have escaped other races in the galaxy, who would come and take the Mother from them, if it were not for the People who protect them--without benefit of their knowledge--or their thanks.
Over time, our people realized that we would abolish an entire race if we were to feed freely upon human blood. The Fae would not allow such destruction of life--even though they, too, often find the humans to be an arrogant race--a race who believes they are the only race in existence. Many of us agree with the Fae.
I agree with these Fae.
Still, some of us did not wish to become monsters--because our own principles--not just because the Queen of Darkness would have us destroyed if we attempted such a thing. Some of us do not wish to destroy the human race, so we developed laws. These laws now govern our people--but there are those--who are turned vamps--who do not wish to be governed by such laws. And so we have war.
The ancient vamps work with the
, with the Jaguar People and the Fae. Over time, the Alliance developed a synthetic drink at our labs within the Alliance . In this way, we are not driven to kill with our thirst. Until we had these, many of us fed off of the blood of animals. A human religion, who would not take blood, were key to the development of synthetic blood. We expanded on this development. Now, the need for blood is no longer an issue within our race. You will learn more about this in the next book, Embraced by Shadow, from the Sons of the Dark Mother. Alliance
Holly: How long have you known that you were one of the four foretold Princes who would save Mother Earth from Destruction?
Dracon: The Prophecy has been told since the fall of Alantis. The Princes of the Four Directions would rise up to stop another--more certain--destruction of our Mother Earth. Only by the Fae, the Witches and others, were we able to stop the destruction of the entire planet--with the fall of Atlantis. These ones worked together to hold our Mother from spinning completely off her axis. As it was, she turned completely on her axis so that the ice came.
Holly: How did you feel or what did you think when you first leaned you were?
Dracon: My parents were among those who learned to walk from the Land of the Fae. However, it took hundreds of years to convince my mother to walk back on Mother Earth in bodily form. My mother did so to save someone she loved. You will get to read more about her in my story in Embraced by Shadows, from the Sons of the Dark Mother.
Holly: Are you friends with the other princes?
Dracon: We are like brothers. We carry a bond--brought by a great responsibility that we share. It is the responsibility to our Mother Earth--to stop all would seek to control others--to the point of their destruction--and the destruction of our Mother, herself. And if we fail--all will die.
Holly: The rumor mill is buzzing will tales of you lately, one being that you have been seen around with a certain female turned vampire . . .?
Dracon: I have always lived by certain rules. I have no use for turned vamps--because many of these vamps care nothing for the Mother--but feed only their own thirst--to their own destruction--and that of all that is around them.
But Dara is not such a vamp. She is one of the Sisters of Three. She risks her own life for that of our Mother. Perhaps--there is a future for us--we shall have to see....
Holly: Thank you again for setting down with me to do this interview, Dracon!
Dracon: Thank you for having me. And remember...heed well the beat at the heart of our Mother Earth...or perhaps you, too, shall have a shadowy visitor--in the darkest hour of the night.
