Character Interview - Bergman

AI generated battle armor

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Ms. Bergman, a recurring villain in The Allison Lee Chronicles. Ms. Bergman makes her first appearance in The Blood of Faeries as the lead interrogator charged with deciphering how Allison's hybrid physiology ticks. She takes special pleasure in terrorizing Allison. She appears in The Wrath of Monsters to happily traumatize Allison once again.


Where were you born?

Heh. I was born in the Ivory Coast. What? Surprised? Heh. My father was a foreign service officer. There's not much to say about it, really. We came back to the United States before I was a year old.


Did I have adventures as a diplomat's daughter? Heh, heh. No, I was raised by my mother. We returned to the United States because good old Dad died in a car accident. Never knew him or gave him any thought. I was always more concerned with avoiding Mom's fits when she got drunk.

She was a mean drunk. At least until I turned, oh, I don't know, 12 or 13. That's when I really started to grow and became freaky big.

See this fist? After the first time I hit her with it, she wasn't a mean drunk anymore. Heh. She was docile as a lamb.


What is your dream job?

I loved working at black sites. Loved it.

Heh. Oh, you want to know what I did? All kinds of things, but my favorite was when I got to interrogate the new prisoners using enhanced methods.




Best time of my life.


What is your favorite food?

I've never put much thought into food. Never been a picky eater. I always eat what's put before me and don't ask questions. It's better that way. Sometimes, you don't want to know what the locals are feeding you. Heh.


The only thing I wouldn't eat is a cat. I'm partial to cats. Unless I was starving. Then I'd eat a cat, but I'd have to be on the verge of death, and I don't think I could eat my cat. His name is Titus, my cat.

Heh. I love that feline. I'd kill myself so he could eat me before I'd cook him.


How do you spend a Saturday night?

Heh. You're not going to believe this. I know what people think about me, especially here on the airship. Captain Bergman is a real hard-ass. A kick ass and take names kind of leader. Not a soft spot in her except for that damn cat. No funny bone, either. Heh.


All that's true. You cross me, I'll use you for target practice the next time I suit up in my mech.


Saturday evenings. Well, heh. I have paperwork. Endless paperwork seems like sometimes. Some Saturday nights, that's all I do. But when I have time to myself, I read romance novels with Titus curled up in my lap.

Bet you didn't expect that! Heh, heh, heh. You should see the look on your face.


The Wrath of Monsters is a compelling read that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and I’d highly recommend it for fans of YA fantasy everywhere.
