The peek inside the newly-revealed Chua and Mordesh WildStar races continues this week with a character interview with the alchemy mastermind Victor Lazarin. Carbine lets us glimpse a bit of Victor’s personality through the interview, and as always– humor’s brought to the forefront in an awesome way that’s uniquely WildStar. Here’s a sample:
Q: What about the zombie part?
A: Do I appear to you an abomination with an appetite for the living?
A: My proclivities do not run in that vein, I assure you. Any interests I have in removing your skull and applying my attentions to your brain are purely clinical.
Q: Whew! That’s a load off of my mind. But just to be clear, you guys weren’t always this…hideous and disgusting? If you’ll pardon the expression.
A: We are no longer quite as majestic as we once were.
Q: So what happened?
A: We were formerly a more visually advantageous race. But although we enjoyed long lifespans, we were fervently fascinated by the figure of death, flagrantly flaunting its finality. My goal was to forever free us from its yoke. To preserve those dear to us who might still be saved.
Q: And your solution?
A: I created the Everlife Elixir.
Q: Which was supposed to grant you eternal life?
A: Your power to perceive the obvious is truly impressive.
Fun stuff. Check out the full interview here.
