David is interviewed by Sheldon, Richart's Second.
Sheldon: Hi, David. Thank you for taking time out of your night to do the interview. I know you're busy.
David: I'm happy to do it. The human members of The Network are invaluable. I consider them a part of our family and think this is a nice way for them to learn a little bit more about the immortals they aid in so many ways, since few of them have the opportunity to meet us in person.
Sheldon: I think everyone will like knowing they mean so much to you all. Now, you are the second eldest immortal on the planet.
Sheldon: You're also the second most powerful.
David: That's correct.
Sheldon: So, what gifts do you possess?
David: I'm telepathic and telekinetic and can heal with my hands, among other things.
Sheldon: Is it true you're so powerful that you can reattach severed limbs?
Sheldon: That is awesome! Roland and the other healers can't do that, can they?
David: No. Only Seth and I.
Sheldon: Is there a gift you don't have that you wish you did?
David: Teleportation. It would make it much easier to help immortals and humans all over the globe.
Sheldon: Is it true you can walk in daylight?
David: I can withstand a few hours at a time, yes. Seth is the only one with no limits.
Sheldon: *consults list of questions* Does being Second in command bother you?
David: Not at all.
Sheldon: You don't ever wish you were in charge?
David: Hell, no. I've see what Seth goes through, the many demands made of him. I'm much happier taking up the slack and helping him out.
Sheldon: You go out of your way to create a family atmosphere among the immortals, opening your homes to them and welcoming one and all. Why is that?
David: Immortality can be difficult. Over the centuries, we lose countless mortal friends to age, illness, and fatal injuries. Our Seconds inevitably die. Any relationships we form with humans die as well. By bringing the immortals together as a family, I give them brothers and sisters they can count on to always be there.
Sheldon: You left out the weird, anti-social cousin.
David: I assume you mean Roland?
Sheldon: *grins* Yes, but don't tell him. Speaking of family, I heard you love Ami like a daughter. What do you think about Seth assigning her to serve as Marcus's Second?
David: *ponders that a moment* Marcus's behavior since he lost Bethany has been worrisome. He has becoming more reckless. Taking chances he shouldn't. I think Ami will temper that, if not bring it to an abrupt end.
Sheldon: How? Most of the other Seconds think Marcus is going to scare her off.
David: *laughs* That isn't going to happen. If Marcus should attempt to drive her away, he will find her a very shrewd adversary.
Sheldon: That's what Seth, Roland, and Sarah all said. Is it true that you and Seth rescued Ami from a facility you then burned to the ground?
David: *expression darkening* Where did you hear that?
Sheldon: *swallows* I . . . may have overheard Chris talking to Marcus.
David: You would be wise to forget everything you heard.
Sheldon: Yes, sir. I've already forgotten it. But, if you don't mind my saying so . . . If Ami has suffered some sort of trauma, do you really think pairing her with Marcus's crazy ass is the best thing for her?
David: I trust Seth's judgment. Implicitly.
Sheldon: Then I will, too. I'm curious to see what will happen.
David: *smiles* As am I. In fact, you'll get an inkling tonight. They're on the way over.
Sheldon: *deer in the headlight expression* They're coming here? Ami is?
Sheldon: I gotta book.
David: Let me guess. She's still angry with you about
Sheldon: Yes. Thank you again for the interview.
David: You're welcome.
