Hi, Aadi here. I’m chatting with one of the stars of Palace of the Twelve Pillars, Prince Joachim. Welcome, your highness, shall we begin?
[Aadi] Who or what are you and what are your vitals?
[Joachim] I am 15 at the opening of Twelve Pillars; approximately age 30 at the conclusion of Sanctuary. Human male, half Mahorganite, half Cratonite.
[Aadi] What part do you play in the story?
[Joachim] My role depends on who you ask. Some think I am the protagonist who will save Ramajadin from the evil that is besetting it, others like my brother will say the antagonist because I always seem to be getting in his way. He thinks I am a goody two shoes. So I will leave it for you to read and decide for yourself.
[Aadi] How would you describe your book?
[Joachim] Picks up paper Twin princes Joachim and Brandan come of age and are thrust into adulthood as they enter a world torn apart by war, kidnapping and betrayal.
As the twins are crowned Kings of Mahorg and Crato, and wed to powerful women, each will deal with the loss of their parents in his own unique way. The choices each makes will set their world on a cataclysmic course that only loss and sacrifice can deter.
Is their love and faith strong enough to see Joachim and Brandan through the veil of evil blanketing the land, or will it fail and be left to their children to save?
[Aadi] Tell me about where you live? Who do you live with?
[Joachim] As princes we live in the Palace of the Twelve Pillars in the city of Wryzburg in the country of Crato on the planet Ramajadin. Our parents King Theodric and Queen Lilia are here with us along with Master Adept Rupert, advisor to our father, Master Adept Croifan who is our teacher and numerous servants and knights.
[Aadi] What’s the most important thing in your life right now?
[Joachim] To convince Brandan to change his ways. I know Father loves both of us, but Brandan doesn’t believe that. If he would just stop for a moment he would realize that and things would go much easier for him.
[Aadi] What do you hope nobody ever finds out about you?
[Joachim] If you are sure you won’t tell anyone, I let my father down. I’m not strong enough to continue the battle. I am afraid I killed Father.
[Aadi] What do you like or dislike about the other characters from your book?
[Joachim] I guess I can’t think of too many things to dislike. I just wish Brandan would adjust his attitude. Things could be so much better if he were a little more agreeable.
[Aadi] Okay, last question. Who would play you in the movie?
[Joachim] I think Tom Hiddleston would be good.
