If you were to describe yourself with one word, what would it be?
Calm.

What is most important to you in the world?
Jian.

Would you help someone who needed it while passing?
Perhaps.

Are you very observant?
More so than you can realize.

How innocent/naive can you be?
I am neither.

Can you entertain yourself easily?
Yes indeed.

How well do you get along with others?
As well as I wish to. It is more often rare that I interact with any who do not already know me.

What was the longest time you had a friend?
I have not had friends as you would define them... though if Jian counts by association, then it has been... a few days.

Do you have someone who knows you inside out?
No.

How short is your temper?
It takes much to anger me, although some specific triggers will anger me quickly. Jian's safety is my greatest concern.

Can you let go of grudges easily?
It would depend on the circumstance.


Do you read?
Yes.

Do you watch TV?
Indeed. It helps me monitor the state of the world while I am away from it.

Do you collect anything?
No, unless you count my position as lord of the underworld... but to say I collect souls would be assuming too much.

How long do you stay interested in something?
For as long as I wish.

If you collected, would it be for interest or profit?
Interest.


Do you know your parents/creator?
I know only that I willed myself into existence. I know myself, yes.

What is your birthday?
Attempting to calculate the date would be futile. I could pick arbitrarily I suppose... perhaps I will ask Jian what he thinks of this.

Do you have any siblings?
Not in the sense expected. If I am kin with the others who strove for form and substance then yes, but I do not think of any of them as such.

Ever have to fight for what you believe in?
Yes. I have no doubts I will have to again.

When did you move out on your own?
This question amuses me.

When did you REALLY mature?
I was "born" mature, even if it took a little while to understand myself. It was not much longer before it could be said I was truly mature.

Did you have many friends?
I believe this question has already been answered.

Any action you regret?
Any pain I have caused Jian, even if it was unintentional or necessary.

What is a memory you treasure?
All these new moments with Jian are giving me memories to treasure that dwarf all others.


Do you have a dream partner?
I have him, for as long as I am able to aid his survival, or as long as he has need of me.

Do you believe you seek someone like your parents (or creator)?
Jian is not like me. I prefer him the way he is.

Do you have one night stands?
i have had them, yes, but I am now devoted to one soul.

What feature is most attention grabbing for you?
Eyes.

What MUST someone have for you to consider them?
Existence.

Older, younger, same age as you?
Jian is young, and it suits him. I look forward to watching him grow into a man... if fate is kind.

How do you feel about settling down?
I would like to, but at this time it is too dangerous. If it were not for that, I believe Jian would be quite happy to share a home with me.

How many dates before you go to bed with someone?
If I wish to reach that level and the desire is mutual, one meeting is sufficient.

How do you handle rejection?
I have yet to be rejected by any who matter enough to me for it to make a difference.

How many times did you stop something before it developed?
I cannot recall having done so.


Have you settled down and if so for how long?
Alone, I have lived in my own home for much longer than modern calendars could make sense of. As to settling down with someone, it has yet to happen.

Any Children?
No.

Any Grandchildren?
That would require having children first.

What do you love most about your partner?
His innocence, even if he thinks he does not have it any longer. Also, his awkwardness is charming.

Any petnames?
For who? Jian only calls me Asura. I have found that I very much like to call him "my love."

How many relationships have you been in?
Physical ones, quite a few. Jian is... a very new experience for me.

Have you ended any?
Most of them, and certainly all with those who are not my kind... save Jian, and I will not be the one to end it.

Has your heart been broken?
No.

Any loves you cannot have?
I have Jian, he is all I want.

Do you believe in true love?
Yes.


Have you ever died?
No.

Can you even die?
I can be destroyed.

Have you seen someone die?
Yes.

Have you killed someone?
Yes.

Have you had someone killed?
If someone needs to die, I will do it myself.


What makes you truly happy?
Jian, my love.

If you could, what is one thing you would spend your life doing?
Ensuring that Jian does what is needed of him in safety and then whatever it is beyond that which makes him most happy.

Do you have a job, if so what is it?
I rule the land of the dead.

Have you ever gone insane?
No.

Did you ever feel as if you were the only sane one in the world?
I am not that pretentious.

If you had a choice, would you live a calm eternal life, or live a wild short life?
I have already lived what humans would call a calm and eternal life.
