Ask Freg

Welcome one, welcome all! It’s time to ask our resident know-it-all some of those burning questions! Well then, Freg, are you ready to answer these quandries?

Freg: I guess so.

Hey! What’s with that lacklustre attitude?

Freg: Well, it seems no one really has any questions so far.

Well, to start us off, I’VE got some questions!

Freg: Oh, you do? Well, why didn’t you say so? Fire away.

imabubble’s questions

I’ll make this quick. How old are you?

Freg: Is that a trick question? YOU write this comic.

Yeah, well. Just answer!

Freg: I’m 346 currently. However, much of the beginning of the story takes place in the past so obviously I’m younger than that during those parts.

Wow, you’re old!

Freg: Elves are known for their longevity.

Well, I guess that answers my next question! So, you’re an elf?

Freg: I am one indeed. Couldn’t you tell?

Well…how do I tell?

Freg: Well, I’m not ugly like a human or have a tattoo on my cheek like a demon. But the easiest way to tell is by looking at my ears. They run along my head rather than sticking out and they’re thinner and more elegant than a demon’s ears. Also, I have prettier eyes than any human or demon. (Hahaha)

I see…. Well, thanks for answering my questions, Freg!

Freg: What, that’s it?

Well, that’s all from me, anyway.

Fidgey’s question

Dear Freg,
What is your favorite type of sandwich and why?
Your Loyal Fan,
Fidgey

Freg: Sandwich? Well, the bread makes the sandwich. If the bread’s no good, then there’s really no point. I also like it when there’s salad in there – it makes it nice and crunchy.

Evilshedude’s questions

Other than your obvious beauty and long ears, what other anatomical differences are there from elves and humans? That is to say…do you have a heart? Is it located in your chest?

Freg: The biology of humans and elves are pretty much the same, besides the obvious facial structure differences. For instance, though Elvish blood is red when oxygenated so it looks the same as Human blood, it is imbued with a chemical known as Clapserose (term coined by me) which rejuvinates tissue. Because of this miraculous chemical, Elves can live up to 5 times longer than humans can. As for a heart, I’ll say one beats in my chest, even if a few might disagree. (Ha ha ha)

Are your other (ahem) anatomical parts in the right places?

Freg: (Ha ha ha) Wouldn’t you like to know!

Um, one last question, more about biology this time I guess. Do elves lay eggs or are they born?

Freg: They are born. Although…I guess “born” isn’t quite the right word. If a couple wants a child, they splice their DNA together, and raise the child in a tube for the first 12 or so years of its life. I was never very interested in children. Needless to say, since we all live so long, only one in five hundred couples ever end up with a child. No one can birth children the “human way” because of the magic most of us have injected into our systems so there aren’t any “accidents” or whatever you might call them.

Knifehug’s question

Dear Freg,
tell me, is it true that elves have completely hairless bodies? (Besides from the hair on your hair of course)
Yours pervertedly,
Knifehug.

Freg: Now, where did you hear that? Maybe we look hairless, but really it’s a matter of hygeine and upkeep. For example, elves grow facial hair naturally, but most of them wouldn’t be caught dead with it.

Khielira Raelm’s questions

why are you so interested in Mohei?

Freg: Well, for one thing, he’s got some very powerful and ancient demon blood. After some research, I found that his father is likely to be the oldest known demon of the Weig clan. Because the bloodline weakens with each generation (unless special precautions are taken) he is a rare opportunity for my research. But also he’s just so easy to manipulate. (Ha ha ha) You have to love people like that.

And this might be rude but, why haven’t you pounced him (Mohei) and had your wicked way with him?

Freg: My wicked way? Why, whatever do you mean? (snigger) But the poor demon. I’d confuse him so much…he needs to find out what I mean on his own.

Rubyhawk’s questions

Dear Freg,
Aren’t you worried that Mohei reads the Ask Freg page? You talk about him like he’s an object.
Also, do elves have university to study science and stuff? Or did you teach yourself how to do research in a lab?
With love, RubyHawk

Freg: I treat him like an object? Why, that’s heartless of me. I thought I treated him at least like an acquaintance! I’m not worried that he reads my stuff, though. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have a computer.
We have universities. I taught at one for a stint, but it wasn’t really worth my time. The students goof off more than study. As for my education, I am indeed self-taught.

Shiori Tsumi and co

Hi, there! Shiori Tsumi here…I have my own question for Freg, but first…I wonder if he would mind answering a much more intelligent one from my dear elfie, Reka.

Freg: Sure, why not?

Reka: *rolls eyes* Yes, well…clearly, you are intelligent, considering your interest in the genetics of Mohei, and his ancestry which may be of no uncertain importance to you. However, on the note of these genes… you recall the gene you have named yourself that exists within elf blood that rejuvinates us? *points to her own ears for clarification* Technology has not become as leading an industry as I would like here yet, but I have been experimenting with it on my own. I must ask your own honest opinion on performing a small bit of what may be considered alchemy, combining the advancing technology with a pure essence of the gene found within elven blood. Mad science? Genius science? Or just plain mad?

Freg: Science is science! As long as you find youself a good patron, I say you’re more than good to go. I’d tell you to be careful, but what’s a good advancement without a few happy mistakes along the way?

Shiori: …My question pales in intelligence to hers. I just want to say this: Freg, your hair is HELLA pretty. How do you keep it so nice-looking? Or do all elves just naturally have pretty hair?

Freg: Elves are more like humans than most of us would admit. We have our bad hair and our good hair. However, since most of us revere beauty and youth, we take great pains in preserving our image, and that includes any kind of grooming. I usually tend to forget myself in my work and not pay too much attention to my looks, so I’m not very popular with the more shallow crowd. I guess you’re in the minority if you think my hair is pretty. As for how we take care of our hair, most use a combination between chemical compounds and magic, I suppose.

Thank you so much for your time! Shiori Tsumi

Freg: Anytime.

Rob’s question

Who is your favorite sailor scout?

Freg: Sailor Neptune.

Shiori Tsumi and co, cont’d

I know I just asked Freg something, but a small argument’s coming up with me and a certain mad scientist elf I know, Monique. (And I use the term ‘mad scientist’ in the best way possible…) What sort of crime would an elf have to commit to be banished from their clan or family? What is the punishment for murder in elven society?

Freg: An elf can do any number of things to get ostracized from society. The biggest ’cause these days is committing a social faux-pas, such as trying to birth children or grow a beard. Elves don’t really like weirdos who don’t follow the normal trends. I’m pretty borderline…but no one’s come after me so far because I’m such a genius, ha ha ha. Oh, and the punishment for murder is to be locked up in a certain place forever. We don’t speak of that place much…its location is a secret as far as I can tell. But really, they wouldn’t do that to me.

Monique: Also, is a mental breakdown considered a breakdown if your perception is much clearer afterwards, or was my dad right when he said that it’s a breakdown if you’re mostly incapable of performing many routine tasks for a short period of time, regardless of the result? Or what if DURING the breakdown, everything SEEMS to be clearer?

Freg: I’d call a mental breakdown something that happens in your head due to stress that changes your mind–for the better or not–forever. Heh, I’m no psychologist, though.

Shiori: ….Also, she and a friend who is unwilling to be named-says she has her dignity- are working on a special elf-demon-something else unholy hybrid as a killing machine, through mad science that probably violates many laws of nature. He is CURRENTLY a perfect killing machine, but his mind is unstable, and he is reluctant to take orders from anyone. In short, if he isn’t restrained, he runs wild and kills everything. They likely need the support of the Empirial Court to find the funding to complete him entirely. If they put the right spin on this guy’s purpose, do you believe they would GIVE these crazy bitches the funding they need?

Freg: An Elf/Demon hybrid is the LAST thing those stingy bastards would want. If I were you, I wouldn’t go around advertizing the biological experiments you’re doing. Elves value the secrets of their bodies, and to crossbreed with anything is considered sacrilege, for lack of a better word. Sounds interesting to me, though.

Thanks so much! Talk ta ya later! -Shiori Tsumi (and co)

Freg: Be very careful…

Pachi’s questions

If Freg’s a magical genius smart like elf dude… why’d he mispell ‘hybrid’?

Imabubble: Oh…I guess this one’s for me! Well, you see, I am kind of a dunderhead when it comes to spacial relation on a keyboard. And I’m the dunderhead who misspelled ‘hybrid.’ Freg just dictates to me and I type–if you really want to go there.

Freg: Like I have time to type all my stuff up.

Do you like cheese?

Freg: I don’t care for it, but it goes well with wine and apples sometimes.

One word: Yaoi?

Freg: It sounds like a demon word.

Or: Yuri?

Freg: Isn’t that someone’s name?

*waves* How are you today? 8D

Freg: Eh. Could be better. Little stressed, but I’ve also got stuff to look forward to.

What do you think of hugs?

Freg: Haha, do humans do that? It sounds really cheezy.

Should I leaveth yew alone nao?

Freg: If you want to. It’s not like I have anything more important to do.

Rubyhawk’s questions con’t

What is your favourite food?

Freg: Green apples.

Akira’s question

Dear Freg, Would you ever have babies with Mohei? And if you ever do have babies…do you think that they will be pretty? (I think Mohei is so adorable XD)

Freg: Lord, no! On both counts.

Pachi’s question (cont’d)

In response to Akira’s most recent question: Who would be the mommy? *has mental images* 8D

Freg: That question doesn’t deserve an answer. But if it’s motherly figures you’re looking towards, don’t look at me.

Akira’s questions (cont’d)

Dear Freg, What would you do if Mohei was stolen from you by slave traders?

Freg: Weeellll, I’d probably go after him and kill the slave traders. If he couldn’t take care of himself, that is. I need his strength, and he does what I tell him to do most of the time, so we make a pretty good team.

Do you have any birthmarks of any sort? Does Mohei have any other birthmarks other than the one on his face?

Freg: I don’t have any birthmarks, but I guess my distinguishing feature is the fact that my face is permanently wrinkled on my eyebrow and there’s nothing I can do about it. Mohei has a birthmark on his hip somewhere. I’m pretty sure his clan tattoo isn’t a birthmark – demons go through some sort of religious ceremony when they’re very little and that’s how they get the clan tattoos. I still have to do more research on them, though.

If you had to choose, Mohei or chocolate?

Freg: I would choose Mohei. You know, you can only enjoy chocolate for a limited time, and Mohei is just so fun all the time.

What happens if you rub Mohei’s ears?

Freg: Let’s see…his face turns red and he twitches and yells at me. I guess they’re quite sensitive, which doesn’t really make sense to me, seeing as they’re such giant monstrosities. Oh well, my understanding of demon physiology is somewhat lacking, which is why I do these kinds of experiments in the first place. Thank you for suggesting it.

What’s Mohei’s favourite food?

Freg: He likes meat, sometimes raw. I’ve been serving it to him cooked, though. Raw meat makes me a little sick inside. Eughhh.

If you had to chose, coffee or sweets?

Freg: Coffee. I don’t really enjoy sweets all that much, and I enjoy being able to stay up all night to work due to the caffeine.

How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Freg: What’s a giraffe? And what’s a refrigerator?

What would you do, if I randomly glomped you?

Freg: I suppose I’d probably try to peel you off of me. I don’t really know, not many people try to “glomp” me.

Enenety’s question

Hello sir. I have an inquiry for you that pertains to physical handicaps among the elven race. You see I am a part of a small solitary group of elves that lives far from any Empirical rule and there is a certain trait that has developed among our ranks. You see for centuries when our clan has deemed it the right time to reproduce, they have gone about it in the natural way that all elves do. As you have already stated. However, there have been more and more cases of newborns being conceived with the recurring physical handicaps of deafness and muteness.

I myself am one of those who was born this way. Interestingly enough because of these physical deficiencies, I and others in the past, have been naturally supplemented with stronger mental and magical abilities as a replacement (i.e., telepathy and foresight).

I suppose what I am wondering is what your opinion is on this occurrence.

Freg: I am wondering when and where I can meet you. I would be very interested in dissect–well, taking a look at you. I am highly doubtful of what you claim, however. There are many elves that seek to go against tradition, but they are all accounted for and with the strict records the Empire keeps, it is rather hard to lose sight of any such group. Keep me posted on when you’ll be available for questionin–I mean, a normal check-up appointment.

Nessa Star’s questions

My dear sir Lanolast,

I apologize in advance for any foolishness I may cause for both of us, but I doubt you’d mind much if I ended up performing a social faux-pas without meaning to, and thusly, you seem like the person to ask.
As a man of science, so start off with, may I just say I’m very interested in your experiments as they are.
a minor afterthought on my part- if your blood contains Clapserose, which allows you to live much longer than normal, then do demons have the same chemical in their blood?

Freg: Demons do indeed carry Clapserose in their bloodstream, and I believe it serves the same purpose: to rejuvinate tissue. This is how demons can appear to be several decades younger than they really are without the aide of special magic. Elves commonly cast multiple spells on themselves in order to take the effect one step further with the aim to look as youthful as the Emperor himself. It’s a pain, and sometimes it embarrassingly goes wrong, causing permanent wrinkles in our skin in most cases.

Their powers seem very blood-oriented, and I thought that perhaps either the Clapserose in your blood is reacting badly with whatever chemical is in his if he doesn’t have it, or perhaps if that’s not the problem, then you’re going about this in a too scientific-method sort of a way. Magic alone may be the way to go, through the ritual that you’ve spoken of many times before. Mohei has mentioned previously, I believe, that demons can be ‘adopted’ into other demon families. I would assume that if- say, a human?- was adopted in such a way (complete with ritual and marking on the cheek), they may begin displaying demonic traits. In other words, Freg, you may be having difficulties with his blood because you have not yet been ‘accepted’ by the ‘ancestors of his clan’. That’s likely how he would think of it. But perhaps the ritual itself is more of a ‘tuning mechanism’, causing the demonic blood to line up with an individual’s genetic code and permitting them to perform feats they otherwise wouldn’t.

Freg: That is an interesting theory, but I’m not sure that is how it works. I was curious when Mohei told me about his former associate not accepting him into the clan–I wondered why he wouldn’t allow such a simple alteration to be done. Something is puzzling about the permanence of demon tattoos. I shall have to study a great deal more on the subject. I have a sneaking suspicion, at any rate, that Mohei is very ignorant when it comes to the subject, and he probably had no idea what he was asking when he wanted to change his face.

…the science distracted me for a moment. Apologies if you’ve already thought of these solutions, I’m simply trying to offer my part, and- if nothing else- perhaps get you thinking again and out of the mental quagmire you’ve been stuck in pertaining to that lovely little demon pet of yours.

Freg: Oh, not a problem. Always love to talk about what I know–it’s what I do best!

My actual questions are as below, and now that I’ve offered some small assistance on my part, I ask that you be understanding when I say I may not be precisely from the same solar system as you. Therefore, please help me to quench my thirst of curiosity, even if the questions seem like those a small child would ask.

How many species make up the main races of your planet? What are their defining traits socially and physiologically?

Freg: You definitely aren’t from here. Well, there are elves: that’s what I am. I guess we can be a little uptight, but really, it takes all kinds. There are also humans–they kind of fill the spaces. I’m sure in their little worlds they like to do their own things. Their kingdoms rise and fall, but I really can’t be bothered with their details. They do like to hire me sometimes, which is nice. Then there are demons, but they’re not really from around here. They trade with humans sometimes, but mostly they keep to themselves and worship all kinds of weird things. There are also dwarves, or so we call them, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. They live underground.

Levels of technology seem quite varied in your world. Would you mind if I asked you to tell me about a piece of cutting edge technology that you’ve heard of recently so that I might have some small idea of how developed your planet is?

Freg: My people are fascinated with new types of architecture and electric lights. It’s embarrassing, but I think we’ve become obsessed with pretty things.

May I ask you to explain the main concept behind magic? Is it like a battery that is used, or perhaps it is the potential kinetic energy of a situation forced to perform its full potential without the addition of a driving force? I am quite intrigued, as on my planet, claims of magic use are dismissed at best and treated as insanity at worst.

Freg: Elven magic is something that comes naturally, and comes and goes with both thought and breath. Eheh…sort of hard to explain, but that’s how it goes. If I were to go further into detail, we say what we’re thinking in the language of our hearts, and it just sort of happens. It’s limited in certain ways, however, and this has to do, I believe with the limitations of our bodies. Part of my research is to find a way of expanding these limitations. I think I am close to discovering how to do that.

Our world has many dangerous effects of nature, earthquakes and volcanoes and typhoons and the like. Does your world have these threats to civilization as well?

Freg: Mohei told me that there used to be a lot of earthquakes where he was from. Volcanoes are rare, but they exist, albeit far from where I live. I mostly get rainstorms.

On a more personal note, coffee or caffeinated tea? How do you like it prepared?

Freg: I go with tea with no milk or sugar.

Thank you for taking the time to address these for me. One last question- in my world, we have something very akin to a ‘hive mind’, a conglomeration of hopes and dreams and concepts and instructions. We rely on it almost completely, for everything from news broadcasts to brainstorming new ideas. We call it the ‘internet’. Is there anything akin to this that you are familiar with on this planet?

Freg: This question has a lot to do with my research on something called “the fourth wall.” The “Ask Freg” section aides greatly in this research, but I have yet to discover the secrets of this “internet.” I do believe the Regeant is sometimes depicted using such a thing, but I can only describe such actions as blatantly anachronistic. *shrug*

Lexxy’s question

Dear Freg,
Do you prefer bottom or top, and why? >:3
–Lexxy (has no shame)

Freg: Hmm…I’d have to say I don’t really care.

Kash’s questions

Okay, I have a question….are there different types of elves? Where I live, there are three types, four if you include half-breeds. There are the drow, the elves who live underground and are supposed assassins, there are the high elves who live above ground and are seen most often, and there are the dark elves which are born of a drow parent and a high elf parent. The existance of the Drow are denied by the high elves and considered a myth by humans, and they won’t even accept the possibility of dark elves. Is there such an imbalance between the elves in your world, or are you just all considered ‘elves’?

Freg: Wow, multiple races of elves? That’s very interesting. I’d have to say that’s the first I’ve ever heard of it. Elves are just…elves. In the beginning, there were very few–they’re called the “pure” elves, and they figured out everything about the world and about magic. Not very much is known about those early times. But the emperor and his queen are both “pures.” They have the original magic, and don’t age at all, whereas most elves these days show signs of aging. Personally, I don’t think they’re all that great. They’re so bored of their lives and they don’t ever do anything new…they’re always sitting around letting the senate argue. I just don’t really care about them, or the senate or whatever. Your elves sound more exciting.
Half-breeds are impossible with the elves of these days, due to the chemical imbalance in their systems, as I explained in a different question. I wouldn’t want to breed with a human or a demon or a dwarf, anyway!

Shiori Tsumi’s questions (con’t)

This is in reference to a story I’m currently writing, and I thought maybe I could get an opinion. So I have this country called Maeyshiek, the inhabitants being called Maeyshians. The Maeyshians are…kind of like elves, in comparison to the other people in their world. EXCEPT….in order to use their magic, and control it properly, a Maeyshian has to form a pact with a demon from a demon clan (usually an elder or more powerful demon). This means, however, that if the demon dies, the Maeyshian loses the ability to actively use their magic, rendering them defenseless as magic users. (Demons CAN be found in other countries, but most don’t leave Maeyshiek.) However, their connection to demons makes most people from other countries….ah…be less than trusting of Maeyshians. Though they’re more the equivalent of elves, their pacts with demons make a lot of people consider them the same as demons, and they don’t trust demons at all. I am curious as to your opinions of this aspect of Maeyshian culture….

Freg: I’m not really interested in fiction. Don’t get me wrong, it sounds interesting, just not something I’d read. Perhaps you’re asking the wrong person.
…I’m getting a glare from the boss saying I have to answer your question.
*sigh*
Okay, well if you’re talking about the sort of mythical demons that are actually inherently evil (y’know, the opposite of angels), then I’d say that people are right not to trust them. But where’s the fun in that? If there ever were such a thing as a real demon I’d want to meet it. But of course, “demons” like Mohei aren’t really demons like that. They’re just called demons because everyone needs something to hate.

Kash’s (Nare’s?) questions (con’t)

For a bit of perspective from an elf, I thought I’d ask you some things…(my companions also had questions, but two can’t read, and none of them know what a computer is)

Freg: Looks like you need a scientist to dig into this “Fourth Wall” business I’ve been researching.

See, where I live, long ago the world was divided into two worlds, the human world, Hanzo; and the demon world; Mako. (The history’s long, complicated and I don’t have time to explain it.) Dividing the worlds is a portal, and on the edge of that portal on both sides is the Sylvanian forest-THIS is where our elves live. They’re pretty uppity jerks, claiming they took no sides during the demon war which led to our world being divided in the first place, but at the same time we have proof that at least ONE of their former druids (Druids are like our world’s elven council- they rule over the elves ) was a personal aide to the demon who started the war. Their job is to guard the portal dividing the worlds to make sure it isn’t misused, but they’ve taken it to extremes and they don’t let ANYONE use it. (Demons…such as myself, unfortunately, have had to take to beating them up to get past.) They accuse everyone of being small-minded, but the druids don’t allow elves to leave the forest unless they have an important quest given to them by the Oracles. (I’m not gonna get into that. ) And the list goes on and on… Anyways, to get to the point, how does this compare to your elven council?

Freg: Well, they do sound just as petty and purile as our council, but our council also tends to stay out of everyone’s business. Elves of this world practice a kind of isolationism in that nobody really cares what they’re doing, and in return, the elves don’t really care what everyone else is doing.

Also, in our worlds, elves are skilled at magic, but extremely fragile. As an example, if a full-grown powerful elven mage got into a fist-fight with a fourteen-year old human boy, the human would win and break half of the elf’s ribs without even trying.

Freg: Your “worlds” are starting to seem more and more like fiction to me!

To compensate for this, they created a strong material called mythril. (<.< …Demons also like to gossip that they claim to be graceful aristocrats to draw attention away from the fact that a human child could beat them to a bloody pulp, but you didn't hear it from me. It IS, however, why demons call elves 'dolls' rather than just calling them elves. My father said he once gave an elven friend a hearty slap on the back and the man was in hospice for a month.) How fragile are the elves in your world, as compared to everyone else? About the toughness of a human or slightly less or greater? Freg: It really depends on the person. If you don't exercise, you won't stay in shape! Obviously, we help ourselves in that we use our knowledge of genetics to make ourselves into flawless beings, so all it really takes is constant upkeep, and you can remain healthy. But even if you can't do that, I think it's real silly that just because someone can use magic, he's pretty much defenseless. That's utterly ridiculous! I'd say I was tougher than some humans, but not all of them. That's why I need Mohei. Artecon’s question

Dear Freg,
I have been following your current line of research as closely as possible for some time, but I fear I still lack a basic understanding of some of the fundamental principles behind your work. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to provide me with the names and publication details of any books or scientific journal submissions that you have written, that could help bring me up to date with your current theories?
Even a partial bibliography would be fine.
Your devoted follower,
Artecon

Freg: Published information is easily available at certain university libraries. If you do claim to be my follower, you should have found them already. The works are usually dated, and have become somewhat general knowledge among those who practice magic. Now, if you are asking for information concerning my current research pursuits, that information is more or less classified. More classified for you, and less classified for me and my clients. If you were a client, that would be a different matter… How about contacting me in a place that’s a little less public, and we can iron out some of the details in terms of payment? I look forward to seeing you soon.

Akira’s questions (cont’d)

Dear Freg,

Can I have Mohei? You know,just for a day or so? X3

Freg: He’s rentable when I’m not using him. The going rate might be a little steep for you, though!

What’s Mohei’s favourite colour?

Freg: I have no idea. Maybe beige? He doesn’t have the greatest fashion sense. Then again, neither do I.

Could you get Mohei to wear a skirt?

Freg: At this point, I feel like I could get him to do anything.

What’s your main goal in life?

Freg: That’s a good question! My life has been so long, that I’ve stopped setting goals for myself, and just have been kind of …working. But I guess recently, my goal has been to overcome this block in my research.

Who does Mohei belong to?

Freg: He belongs to me at the moment. But, as I said, he’s rentable at a daily rate. (laugh) Really, just so you know, I’m kidding. I don’t really think he’d agree to being rented.

….*glomp*

Freg: mrrphh!

Shiori’s questions (cont’d)

Hey, Freg, an elven scientist friend of mine wanted to ask you a question…and I had to translate for her….(she speaks hyper.) I hope you don’t mind. What she wanted to say was…’I heard you work in the palace for regeant Kae. Pretty awesome. I also hear you’re experimenting with a demon’s blood…technically, so am I. I’ve been trying to alter the demon blood so I can use it to create a cure for some more serious diseases certain people suffer from-my relations to this I can’t admit right now. I thought I had come up with a perfect formula, but I’m too nice to test it on any of my assistants. So I tried it on myself.

Freg: Even if this were true, that’s not a good idea.

It didn’t work out. The altered demon blood formula I used changed my appearance slightly, messed up my blood pretty bad- effectively mutating my genetics to the point that it can’t be fixed, and I can’t use magic at all anymore…also, apparently the strength that came with the demon blood mixed with my elven blood puts me in a constant state of hyperactivity. I have to dictate this carefully through friends and assistants, and occasionally get myself an injection with elven blood and some sedatives to balance me out.

Freg: I told you so!

I understand, as I said before, you seem to be doing your own experiments with demon blood, and I thought I might ask if you’ve found any possible way to alter it effectively. My assistants, bless their hearts, keep trying to overwork themselves trying to find a way to ‘fix’ me. It’s not gonna happen, and I don’t want them to hurt themselves trying, but still….anyhow. Officially, my mutations happened due to some experiments that most certainly do NOT involve demon blood, but some of the senators still have their suspicions. If there’s any advice you could give, that’d be great….as for me, I hear weird things about you and your demon friend, but all I can say is that you might do better to be nicer to him. My assistants are dedicated to me because I value them as PEOPLE, not things I use to further my experiments. They’re friends. Coelairis Lentryn, out!’

Freg: That’s where you make your mistake. If you can do scientific experiments and make a so-called atrocity of yourself, you can’t possibly have friends that you wouldn’t mind hurting. If you do, then you should just stop. You call yourself a scientist. (laugh)

She means well, she usually does…but her luck isn’t so great. She also talks like she has a hyperactive disorder right now, but she’s smart and really cares for her assistants. Her new demon-like qualities make people not trust her so much anymore. I hope her message didn’t make this too long for you, Freg, but it seemed important. Anyways, thanks so much for your time.

Freg: Let it be a lesson to those who have weak hearts. Science isn’t for everyone!

Akira’s questions (cont’d)

Dear Freg,

I’m like spam aren’t I? But on to the questions!

1. You’ve gotten close to Mohei as the months go by, does he share any of his personal history with you? Like first love, etc.

Freg: Mohei did share with me most of his personal history, especially regarding the demon Moreyih, someone he thought I could help him find. Unfortunately, I seem to have killed him many years ago. He told me also about a human woman he loved, but who of course died. I was surprised to find out some things, for instance how young he was when he was adopted by the demon bandits, but I also knew or surmised most of the rest.

2. How do you think your relationship with him will develop (if it develops at all)

Freg: Hah…at this point, I think our “relationship” is more something to get out of the way before Mohei can move past it. It’s not necessary.

3.Does Mohei have a soft spot for things? Like unable to resist certain foods or objects?

Freg: The idiot hangs on my every word. He tries to act distant, but I can tell that everything I say gets super-analyzed by him. Maybe I should watch what I say. (laugh) No way. He’s so thick that he could guess for a million years and still not know what I’m thinking.

4.This might be personal but who was your first love and how did it end?

Freg: Never had one. Maybe my first love was gardening.

5………*glomp!*

Freg: *fgfhgjjhjjjj*

Eleanor’s question

Dear Freg,

Are there any other races in your world? More specifically, angels? I know you have demons, but I’m unsure whether they are divine/denomic or if that’s just colloquial.

Eleanor

Freg: That’s a very good question, Eleanor. I can see how the name “demon” often fools people into thinking there is some sort of karmic law involved. No, the proper name for what everyone calls demons is Deldahe. Long ago, when the Deldahe first came across humans, they named them “demons” for their odd looks. To a human, demon eyes seem to look strange, and also demon ears are reminiscent of their evil gods. However, after a while, humans were able to mostly get over this difference and trade with the demons. But the name stuck, and most demons these days call themselves by their evil nickname.
To us, the idea of good and evil beings is ridiculous. Most elves just don’t like anything that doesn’t look like them. We mostly ignore humans and demons. Because of their religious beliefs and their lack of technology and culture, they are thought to be uncivilized. I don’t necessarily agree–Mohei has proved himself to be incredibly useful!
If there is even a being of true evil, it’s probably me!

Sneo’s question

I’m a new fan~so my question is (if you still take them):

What is your definition of Love? Do you believe in the comprehension from the dictionaries point of view, or do you not care for the emotion at all? (I’m not being a meanie, I’m just being overtly curious and analytically annoying ;u; )

Freg: Love is an emotion that causes attachment. It is necessary in some cultures to facilitate breeding and whatever rituals are associated. I’ve never experienced it myself. Though I have passion, the feelings never linger long enough to be considered “Love.” It is more like something to be controlled and ignored.
Haha, imagine me being so weak as to fall in love!

Ask Freg a question!
