Brankaresh was also a murdering traitor. I guess it proves you can't have it all. I am honoured to be appointed to the Chief Wizard role and will do my best to bring the job back to where it is meant to be - an honourable post, showing wizard back up to the fairy government, being no threat to anything other than those beings that threaten the security of the realm.
You have not been in the role long. What do you think your first priorities should be?
To show the wizarding community we can redeem our reputation. Brankaresh's treachery shocked the vast majority (and those that weren't shocked had also turned traitor). To show the Fairy Kingdom as a world wizards will put their magical services in the service of the realm and we are not the big threat we have been portrayed as by the likes of FNN. To reassure the people at large.
You have made overtures to Eileen, assuring her you will do nothing to force her back to the realm and that you will do your best to make the Queen drop her crazy idea of getting Eileen back permanently. How did that go down?
With Eileen, very well. With the Queen, not at all. However one of my roles as her Chief Wizard is not to rubber stamp anything and everything she comes out with but to advise her as well as putting my magical talents into her overall control. The Queen did take that point well, better than I was expecting anyway.
