Greetings everyone. Today we are sitting down with Clarissa Gosling as we pick the mind of her character: Varvaara. This character is in her book featured in the DRACOS: Fantasy Dragon Tales box set. Let’s get into this and see what we can learn about Varvaara.
What is your full name? Do you have a nickname (if so, who calls you this)?
My name is Vavaara, the second born daughter of Queen Soovi of Kaitstud.
Where do you live now, and with whom? Describe the place (home and location) and the person/people you live with.
I live in a cave palace in a valley in the mountains with my three sons. Here we are hidden from the humans outside who slaughtered the rest of my family.
To which social class do you belong?
I was the last remaining member of the dragons who ruled over the continent, until my four children hatched.
How would you describe your childhood?
It was full of wonder and majesty. I had everything I ever needed. Until my uncle went feral and things went downhill from there.
If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be, and why?
Stop my mother from giving away the secret of dragongrass to the humans. They helped her overcome her brother, but then turned on us all.
What is your biggest secret? Does anyone else know about this? Which person do you least want to know about this secret, why?
I survived. The only person I’ve told about my background is Rupert, as I had to hand over my precious daughter to him to bring up. It broke my heart to leave her, but her survival was more important than keeping her with me. The realization that I couldn’t care for her, as a weak human baby, when I had three dragonlets to care for at the same time, was the second worst moment of my life. Seeing her again after all these years was a balm to my broken heart.
What is your greatest fear? Which other person knows about this fear of yours? Who do you not want to know about this fear of yours, why?
Leaving the valley. Since the humans slaughtered my family I have only left twice – once to find a mate, as the drive to lay eggs was too strong, and once to give over my precious daughter back to her father.
