Interview with Killian Barth, Witch Master
Hi everyone. Today I’m both excited and a little nervous to be interviewing Dr. Killian Barth. Dr. Barth is a historian and professor of history. He is also the Witch Master, the most powerful male witch in 10 generations.
Tara: Hello, Dr. Barth. It’s wonderful to see you again.
KB: Please, call me Killian.
Tara: (Points to black cat wrapped around Killian’s neck) Who’s your friend?
KB: Ah, this is Aloysius, my familiar. We are inseparable. At his insistence.
Tara: What does a familiar do?
KB: As the old joke goes, anything he wants. But in particular, he magnifies power. If I cast a spell and pet Aloysius, or even if he is just present, the spell will become stronger.
Tara: That must be very strong since you’re the most powerful witch in 10 generations.
KB: Shrugs. Well, witchery has been declining in power so I’m not such a big deal.
Tara: I’m sorry to hear that. Can you tell us why?
KB: We are taught that our power is in decline because of interbreeding with humans. Those devils are so attractive we can’t seem to resist them. Then they deplete our power until we have none. (He sighs)
Tara: How are you going to save the race of witches?
KB: I have to marry the most powerful female witch of our generation and produce offspring. (He shudders.)
Tara: You don’t seem too thrilled with the idea.
KB. Don’t misunderstand. She is a lovely witch. But I am homosexual and do not appreciate the sexual attraction of females.
Tara: Why don’t you just artificially inseminate?
KB: Sadly, the sperm of witches cannot live outside our bodies.
Tara: You are in a fix. What are you going to do?
KB: My duty I suppose. But I would have liked to experience love once in my lifetime.
Tara: How does the female witch feel about it?
KB: Her situation is even sadder. She is in love with someone else. But he is human!
Tara: Oh dear, that’s awful. And you’ve never been in love?
KB: No. Being the Witch Master means other males are either afraid of me or want to use me. Plus, I have to confess this terrible thing. There is this human physics professor who just came to our college. I have never met anyone like him. I know I have to stay away from him but…he is so irresistible. Worst of all, Aloysius loves him and keeps rubbing and purring all over him. It’s disgusting. I wish I could do it.
Tara: And this human could deplete you! It sounds like you’re in a lot of trouble.
KB: Yes, I’m thinking I have to cast a love spell to attract a male witch who can get me to stop thinking about this human.
Tara: Wow. Are you sure that’s a good idea?
KB: No. But I must do something!
Tara: Good luck. You have quite a story.
KB: Yes, I think it would make a good book.
Tara: I’ll see what I can do.
Ah, most enjoyable visit. I'll be back next week with a complete report on my RT experience. Thanks so much for visiting the blog. : )
