Charlos Interviews Pazuzu: From the Fishwrap Archives


From deep in the Fishwrap Magazine archives, I have found a previously unpublished interview with Pazuzu by Charlos. The interview (OOC circa late 2003) is provided here in its entirety.

(As Zorton holds his strange looking stone, magic fills the air...)
(Zorton glows brightly)
(Charlos glows brightly)
(The aura of magic surrounding Zorton fades...)
Zorton asks, "I'll just be waiting over here then, ok?"
Charlos says, "Much obliged Zort, won't be long."
Charlos asks, "so Pazuzu... how'd you come to be exiled to Puddleby?"
Pazuzu says, "I have no memory of anything that happened before I landed here."
Pazuzu says, "The first memory I have is being handed a club."
Pazuzu says, "Which was fine, because I have an inherent sense of how to defend myself."
Charlos asks, "How long have you been in the 3rd circle?"
Pazuzu says, "Somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 zodiacs."
Pazuzu says, "However, a belt is merely an accessory and doesn't denote the skill of the one wearing it."
Charlos says, "I noticed you're wearing the symbol of OWE..."
Pazuzu says, "Of course I am."
Pazuzu asks, "Would you expect anything less?"
Charlos says, "No, I don't expect anything less..."
Charlos asks, "Just wondering how it came to be. What led you to join this clan?"
Pazuzu says, "I have strength beyond reproach and a natural ability to lead fellow exiles into battle."
Pazuzu says, "Therefore, it was no surprise to me when I was offered the symbol of the White Elephant."
Charlos says, "You talk about a natural ability to lead..."
Charlos asks, "Do you see yourself as a leader of OWE? If not now, perhaps sometime in the future?"
Pazuzu says, "Without question."
Charlos asks, "Why no question?"
Pazuzu says, "In my eyes, the clan symbol means more than sharing experiences with my fellow elephants."
Pazuzu says, "What it should mean is being a part of something greater than oneself."
Pazuzu says, "Dedication and mutual support are essential to a team gelling into one unified fighting force."
Pazuzu says, "In time, I feel that I will rise through the ranks to eventually be granted the reigns of power."
Pazuzu says, "Nothing has greater meaning than my clan, and its eventual restoration to its undisputed top position."
Charlos asks, "What kind of fighter do you see yourself as?"
Pazuzu asks, "Right now, or becoming?"
Charlos says, "Both."
Pazuzu says, "For what you call a 3rd circle fighter..."
Pazuzu says, "I see my abilities as being beyond such."
Pazuzu says, "Alliances I have formed, within my clan and without..."
Pazuzu says, "And an astute knowledge of weaponry..."
Pazuzu says, "Allow me to believe that I will rise and one day become a part of the upper echelon."
Charlos asks, "Specifically, do you see yourself specializing in anything in particular?"
Pazuzu says, "My specializations will be knowledge known only to me."
Charlos says, "Fair enough."
Charlos says, "I've heard from a few folks that you have a "no frills" approach to training..."
Pazuzu says, "This is true."
Pazuzu says, "I prefer not to have anything interfere with adding to my strength."
Charlos says, "So... no skinning? No pathfinding? No chaining? No..."
Pazuzu says, "Don't even ask about Mentus."
Charlos says, "Understood. No frills."
Pazuzu says, "Quit saying frills."
Pazuzu says, "Frills implicates some sort of gimmick."
Pazuzu says, "It's known as: All business."
Charlos asks, "Where are some of your favorite places to hunt?"
Pazuzu says, "Well, recently I have been dabbling in hunts on Kizmia's Island."
Pazuzu says, "For the most part, however, I normally stay confined to the main isle."
Pazuzu says, "I'm known to be a frequent visitor to the Valley, the Savanna, as well as Noids."
Charlos asks, "What about the Ethereal Plane?"
Pazuzu asks, "What about it?"
Charlos asks, "Ever been out there?"
Pazuzu says, "I have been there a handful of times."
Charlos asks, "Do you find it interesting? Is it a place you might see yourself returning to?"
Pazuzu says, "It is a place I would like to explore in the future."
Pazuzu says, "At the moment though, most of my information about the EP comes from PTF."
Charlos asks, "Have you attended any PTF hunts?"
Pazuzu says, "I'd be more than happy to, but I've never been invited."
Charlos says, "They're a good group, some of whom you've hunted with outside of their designated hunt time."
Pazuzu says, "Yes, I've been on hunts with most members and count two as clanmates."
Charlos asks, "How about Orga Territory?"
Pazuzu says, "I have no problem with killing Orga."
Pazuzu says, "Places that lie deep in Orga Territory, I will only venture into with a stout crew."
Charlos says, "By stout...."
Pazuzu says, "And what I mean by stout is.."
Pazuzu says, "Everyone within the crew must be constantly thinking and know what they're trying to do."
Charlos says, "Sounds like you have a good idea of who that crew would be composed of."
Pazuzu says, "Yes, I've been here long enough to know who should be on a hunt and who shouldn't."
Charlos says, "Let's talk about your friends a little."
Pazuzu says, "First and foremost: Natas, my teacher and mentor."
Pazuzu says, "Yosaku, my right hand dorf."
Pazuzu says, "Afrit, Yor, Deathlord, Jo'Maril, Praetorius, Shorty (aka Aries), and of course Althea."
Charlos says, "Well, it's funny you mention Althea..."
Charlos says, "I'm curious..."
Pazuzu says, "Not that it's any of your concern..."
Pazuzu says, "I will say this though:"
Pazuzu says, "Althea is the finest sylvan fighter in the lands,"
Pazuzu says, "Untouchable by any other, and I hold our relationship to be dear."
Charlos says, "You have been seen, from time to time, in the presence of other sylvan females..."
Charlos asks, "Care to comment?"
Pazuzu says, "Guilty as charged."
Pazuzu says, "Just let me say this though:"
Pazuzu says, "'Thea is the only one who holds my attention."
Pazuzu says, "A few things I'd like to add..."
Charlos asks, "Yes?"
Pazuzu says, "Since you have no questions on these subjects..."
Pazuzu says, "I have trouble understanding the logic of fighters who don't believe in Detha."
Pazuzu says, "To me that is like saying 'I'm gonna kill this Orga Hatred with a chokehold.'"
Pazuzu says, "It's a silly endeavor and will only make one look foolish."
Pazuzu says, "In regards to bloodbladers:"
Pazuzu says, "They should do their best to see to it that skills attained from normal trainers are up to snuff before they make themselves a nuisance."
Charlos says, "Thanks a lot for your time, Pazuzu, it's been informative."
Pazuzu says, "Likewise Charlos, I appreciate you taking the time to interview me."
(Charlos waves)
Pazuzu yells, "cya'round Zort!"
