Character Q & A: Oceanus Reaves

Let me first thank you, Oceanus, for agreeing to sit down with us and answer a few questions.

It’s all right. Just make it quick. I was in the middle of a book, after all.


Will do. Could you please give us your full name, age, and connection with the Illyrian gods?

My name’s Oceanus Reaves, I’m 12 years old, and I’m the Sea Guardian–a reincarnated god bound to serve and protect the Illyrians for all eternity.


The Sea Guardian, eh? So one could assume you have a mastery over the sea?

And other lesser bodies of water, yes. Though controlling the seas isn’t yet advised for my Class level. You see, attempting to summon and/or command something that’s just too powerful for your Class could lead to Consumption, where a god loses control of both their powers and their mind.


Sounds dangerous.

It is. Very. Once I heard Lady Nepia, the Sea Queen, went into a state of Consumption and swallowed a whole mini-continent with the ocean. Never saw it again.


Lady Nepia is one of the Illyrians, correct?

Of course! What kind of a question is that?


My apologies. Who’s your favorite Illyrian?

Eos and Ezra, the Unseperated Ones. They’re the goddesses of art and knowledge. I haven’t met them, but they’re my idols for sure.


They’re two gods in one, right? Like, two torsos sprouting out of one waistline?

Yeah. Do you have a problem with that?


Umm…no, haha…Okay, here are some rapid-fire questions:

Your favorite power?

Water whip.


Your favorite piece of clothing?

Blue hair ribbon.


Your favorite past time?

Reading. Do you not pay attention?


Your best trait?

It’s a toss-up between my amazing blue eyes and my ability to cope with any situation I find myself in.


Your worst trait?

I sort of, kind of have a temper.


But wouldn’t that affect your coping…

Next question.


Okay, last one: What do you know about the tragic events about the night of the Class Verification Exams?

I know you ask too many questions.
