 Character Interview:
You work in Hollywood for your father at Bitar Security. What does your job entail exactly?
J: I’m a Security Officer. That’s just a fancy word for bodyguard. Rich people pay me to protect them.
Just ‘people’?
J: No. As one of the Ginnaye – a Jinn guardian tribe – I’m often contracted to protect other Jinn or people who are important to the Jinn.
Like Ari?
J: Yes.
How do you feel about guarding Ari?
J: Ms. Johnson is an important client. I’m happy to protect her.
Would you say you and Ari get along?
J: It’s not important for us to get along. But we do alright.
Still, living in such close quarters can’t be easy. Does Ari have any annoying habits?
J: Yes.
Um… could you elaborate?
J: Not really.
OK. Well… if there was one thing in the world you wish you could change about your life what would it be?
J: To not have agreed to do this interview? Joking. Sort of. Uh yeah I wouldn’t wish to change anything. Regrets just hold you back.
Finally, if you were stranded on a desert island what one person, one book and one refreshment would you take with you?
J: I’m Jinn. We don’t do stranded.
