If you gave some of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say? Sure, I can call in a member from the psychic vampire race. Layla Gray, the eldest known vampire in the world would probably say something like, “You are cute to want an interview, human. I’m surprised your race hasn’t died out by now, but of course, you have The Core to thank for that, don’t you?”
