Interviewer: Captain Patrik Kramer

Cpt. Kramer: Good evening, state your name. Please speak clearly so that Marlina can hear you. She’ll be typing everything you say tonight.

Koa: Sure. I am Koa Ryeo-won. And good evening to you too.

Cpt. Kramer: Thank you Miss Ryeo-won. Where were you born?

Koa: Daegu, South Korea

Cpt. Kramer: And your parent’s name?

Koa: Eunju Park-Vangelis and Alsand Vangelis

Cpt. Kramer: And your parent’s race?

Koa: My mom is Korean and my father is…well, I guess he’s just white. Like you.

Cpt. Kramer: No, I mean, what race are they: human, vampire, War-Breeder, Syth, etc…

Koa: Oh. My mom is human and my father is a vampire

Cpt. Kramer: Interesting. I looked over your profile and I was quite impressed. You ranked fairly well against the other candidates. Skilled in the sword, dagger, and martial arts. Where did you get your training?

Koa: My father taught me everything I know.

Cpt. Kramer: And you speak, French, Korean, English, and Russian?

Koa: Yes, and Spanish. And a little German.

Cpt. Kramer: Impressive for a seventeen year old.

Koa: I guess. I grew up isolated from others. My early life was spent in a one room cottage in Korea with my mother. When my father came to claim us, he moved us into his massive manor in France, but still, I wasn’t allowed to go to school. I didn’t have friends. What else could I do but read and study?

Cpt. Kramer: But I see here, that you can walk in the sun. No other vampire can do that.

Koa: I’m not full vampire. I only have to drink blood once a week. Of course I prefer human blood, but it can be blood from any living creature. But, Wryn Castle has changed that. I will find myself a pet and I won’t have to hunt anymore. But don’t let that influence your decision. I assure you, I can do this job. I can do many things that even full vampires cannot.

Cpt. Kramer: You can fly.

Koa: Yes. I can fly. How many of your agents can do that?

Cpt. Kramer: Quite a few actually. We are mainly comprised of angels, but I see what you’re getting at. None of the other candidates can fly. But, why should we accept you into the Netherworld division when our main goal is to reform or exterminate the vampire race?

Koa: Because it needs to be done. Someone has to keep order in this world. I may be half vampire, but I am more human. I’ve seen what some vampires can do. I want to protect the humans.

Cpt. Kramer: But you killed a human.


Cpt. Kramer: Do you wish to stop the interview now?

Koa: No. I’m fine. I just don’t like to think about that.

Cpt. Kramer: You cannot have any secrets here. We know everything.

Koa: I see that. It's kind of creepy.

Cpt. Kramer: Well, you see that knowing things is our job. Now, tell me about Bartov Gorski, the Polish student you killed.

Koa: It was an accident. I was trying to date for the first time. I swear, I didn’t mean to kill him. I got a little carried away when I was feeding. Trust me, I’ve punished myself enough for that. I will never let that happen again.

Cpt. Kramer: You come highly recommended by Agent Halston.

Koa: Yes. He saved my life. He found me at my lowest point and helped me get my life back together. I’ll never be able to repay him. I want to do this job, and do it well, to prove to him that I was worth saving.

Cpt. Kramer: And yet, we still have that human murder on your record. What would you suggest we do about that?


Cpt. Kramer: Miss Ryeo-won?

Koa: How the hell should I know? Lock me up. Kill me. That won’t bring Bartov back. But let me be an agent and redeem myself. Let me use my skills, skills that you need, to bring vampires to justice. There are many out there that need to be shown that there is another way. I want to be a part of that more than anything.

Cpt. Kramer: More than finding the demon that killed your father?

Koa: How did you know about that?

Cpt. Kramer: I told you, Koa. We know everything.

Koa: I will find him. And I will kill him. Until then, I will do what it takes to keep the humans safe. Even if you don’t make me an agent, I will be out there. I’ll do it alone if I have to, but trust me, you cannot keep me or my Lyrinian sword from seeking out and destroying the evil of this world.

Cpt. Kramer: I see. That’s all the time we have. You can see yourself out. Call in the next candidate, a Miss Galena Volkova, and we’ll contact you if you’ve made the team. Otherwise, you will never hear from us again, unless, you kill another human. Then, you will be punished. Have a good night, Miss Ryeo-won.

Koa: There’s nothing good about the night Captain Kramer. The night is filled with demons, vampires, and creatures from my worst nightmares. I’ll be out there, hunting those monsters…one by one.

Cpt. Kramer: You’re a determined young lady, aren’t you?

Koa: You have no idea just how determined I am.

Cpt. Kramer: Right. Here, take this letter to the receptionist. Tell her to show you to Agent Halston’s office. 

Koa: What is it?

Cpt. Kramer: You’ll see when you get there. 

Koa: Sure. Bye, and thank you for considering me.

Cpt. Kramer: Goodbye, Koa.
