Welcome to Viviana, Enchantress of Books Ariston. We are extremely grateful to Hades for allowing you to travel to meet with us today. Please have a seat. May I offer you anything to eat or drink before we begin?
I thank you, no.
When we first meet you, you are already in love with Medusa. Tell us about the first time you saw her?
The first time I saw her, I’d been summoned to Councilman Galenus’ home. I was none too pleased to have been assigned her escort. My training made me more valuable on the battlefront, but I knew of the Persian plot to rouse Athens’ citizens into action. And while they are barbarians, kidnapping Athen’s priestess-chosen by the Goddess Athena herself- ‘twas a good ploy.
Seeing her, those eyes watching me over her veils (he shakes his head) - I would not leave her unprotected. And for that, being chosen to protect her, I thank Athena.
