What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Misery - the art of being miserable. Misery was defined by Lady Kite as a feeling of immense sorrow and pain. I have yet to feel such a sensation.
Where would you like to live?
Where else is there to live other than here? I am content to stay with my creator.
What is your idea of earthly happiness?
The concept of happiness is another in which I have been acquainted. Happiness, in my definition, is experiencing this world in all its beauty. I wish to meet others, interact with them, and perhaps...somehow learn to feel as they do.
To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
Faults? I was designed to not possess faults. I do feel that I possess one. I am naturally coded to be far more that a simplistic artificial life form, but I am too artificial to be accepted by everyone else. I am on an unfortunate borderline.
Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?
Of all the fictional characters I am aware of, my favorites are those who act with grace and dignity towards others.
Who are your favorite characters in history?
I do not have one. Each significant figure in the history of our people has not expressed the need for peace, which is rather...shocking. I would hope to encourage that in the future of our planet.
Who are your favorite heroines in real life?
Lady Kite has told me much of her mentor. The late Euphrensia was known for both her efforts upon this planet and her ultimate betrayal. While betrayal is not virtuous, my lady said I was designed based on her encouraging Lady Kite. I owe my life to them.
Who are your favorite heroines of fiction?
Refer to my answer on "the heroes of fiction".
Your favorite painter?
I cannot choose a favorite. All of our artists have amazing talent and should be seen as admirable for their efforts.
Your favorite musician?
Music in itself is an interesting creation. Those who are able to play and manipulate sound are incredible.
The quality you most admire in a man?
With natural life as a whole, I admire their abilities to freely express themselves through who they are as unique individuals. I am certain there can be many of me created; however, not with them. I love that the most.
The quality you most admire in a woman?
Refer to the answer above.
Your favorite virtue?
Virtues - qualities you can feel from a person's being in the good that they stand for. My favorite of these virtues is compassion.
Your favorite occupation?
Learning. Being that I was designed as a "historian", I am meant to learn many things to store in my memory core. I have found learning to be...enjoyable? I believe that is the term that was explained to me.
Who would you have liked to be?
I would have liked to been born as the others were on my planet. I wish to be a part of natural existence.
Your most marked characteristic?
A desire for knowledge and to successfully feel accepted within our society.
What do you most value in your friends?
I currently do not have many friends. I have tried to "make friends" with others, but most do not take to me well. The ones that have, however, are very beautiful in "spirit". They express what I see as true compassion towards me and my unusual origins.
What is your principle defect?
Being artificial and quite unlike everyone else. It makes my lady rather upset that I feel this distinction; however, several others do not like that I am what I am.
What to your mind would be the greatest of misfortunes?
To never have experienced the opportunity to "live".
What would you like to be?
Real, if only for a moment.
What is your favorite color?
All colours are beautiful in their own way.
What is your favorite flower?
If an individual can be deemed as a flower, my favorite has yet blossomed.
What is your favorite bird?
What is a bird? I cannot say it is something I have heard of. I should ask my creator.
Who are your favorite prose writers?
Writers, both for poetry and prose alike, also have remarkable talents. Each of them should be regarded for organizing such beautiful words.
Who are your favorite poets?
Refer to the answer above.
Who are your heroes in real life?
Ones who are living? My Lady Kite. I watch her on a frequent, and her steadfast dedication to her craft inspires many. She is my designer - my mother. She is someone who deserves more credit than she has earned.
What are your favorite names?
Names that are left as a mark on the world.
What is it you most dislike?
I do not have much that I dislike. If I had to choose something, it would be the limits to my capabilities.
What historical figures do you most despise?
While I do not appreciate the figures of our history, I cannot say there is anyone that I despise. There are many in our history that have not been kind; however, that does not mean I despise them.
What event in military history do you most admire?
As someone who has kept documentation of all history in my processing core, I have learned much about our land's military history. The warfare that took place to create our utopia is...both admirable and unfortunate.
What natural gift would you most like to possess?
I would want to 'be' natural. That is a gift in itself when you live as the first artificial life form.
How would you like to die?
Dying is more often found in natural existence. I suppose, however, that artificial life can wither. If I were to do so, I would want to expire knowing that I had accomplished all I was meant to as a historian.
What is your present state of mind?
It is difficult to have a state of mind when you are someone like me. However, I can say that I am forever searching for something more.
What is your motto?
Regardless of how we were born, we each have a path to follow. What we may find along that path, whether good or bad, is what makes the journey worthwhile.
