ICIRA'S EVIL LAIR
A DIFFERENT STATE ENTIRELY
A shadowy figure dropped to the floor, near to Icira.
The lights around him smashed and died.
Suddenly, a whole new set of lights flashed around both of them.
"HELLO MS. WITHERFLAME!"
Jakku smiled, taking off the trenchcoat to reveal a smart suit, a mic in one hand.
"Thank you for agreeing to take part in the Eyrie!"
*cheezy opening music plays*
Jakku: Hey kids! It's me, Jakku Ebansu! And I'm back with another lump of Eyrical goodness! And here tonight with me is my hostess with the mostest this evening, having broken into her lair, Ms. Icira Witherflame! Give her a big hand!
Icira: Goodness me, is that a camera? Hello, world! Better watch your back! *evil laughter*
Jakku: So, Ms. Witherflame. You seem to have a unique sense of a humour when it comes to your plots. And let's face it, you have to if you want to team up with Disarray... Tell me, why so unserious?
Icira: Hah! Good one, Jakku. That's actually part of the reason I became a villain in the first place—for the sheer fun of it. Not for money or power; I have both of those already. I enjoy the challenge of fighting against the heroes of the world, and I never take it too seriously. Don't be fooled, though—as we go along, I'm going to get more complex and more dangerous, just to see how the forces of good deal with it. I don't exactly have high expectations. *chuckles*
Jakku: Now, now. It's common knowledge that, to escape capture, Icira Witherflame uses avatars of herself as body doubles, right folks? Doesn't it ever get confusing, being one of those avatars?
Icira: Confusing? Not usually. I'm careful to properly label each connection so I know exactly where I'll wake up. Admittedly, there are mix-ups occasionally, but they don't last long, provided my computer system doesn't have a heart attack. Now, when I'm posing as someone else, then it can get confusing, because then I have to get used to a new appearance, a new voice....new plumbing, occasionally....but that's a story for another time, I think.
Jakku: Just a quick thought, in your last plot, we saw some foreshadowing at the end about your son. Is there a Mister. Witherflame, or do us average joes still have a chance?
Icira: *laughs* My "son", as I called him, isn't actually related to me by blood. It's just sort of like the relationship between scientist and magnum opus—they view it as their baby. This new henchman is my greatest creation to date, so it's my "baby", if you will. So no, there's no "Mr. Witherflame". As for whether average joes have a chance with me....I guess if you're into that sort of thing. *winks*
Jakku: Okay, finally, who's your favourite villain to work with, and your least favourite hero to fight against? This is always an interesting question to pose, no matter what side of the alignment spectrum.
Icira: My favorite villain to work with would have to be Disarray. He's good at what he does, he doesn't take things too seriously, he's easy-going, an all-around okay guy. True, he can get on my nerves at times, but he always means well. From a villainous perspective, that is. As for my least favorite hero to fight against, I'd have to say Jeremiah Darius. The kid's too eager to dispatch the villains—so eager, in fact, he's willing to become a villain himself to do it. What ever happened to the good old days when heroes were heroes and villains were villains? Things were so much less frustrating then.
Jakku: Such an insightful interview! We wish ya the very best in season two, Icira! Now, Ebansu, away!
Jakku throws a smoke bomb.
The room is thrown into darkness, and Jakku leaves.
There is no sign he has ever been there, save for a 'ROGUES' GALLERY- THE EYRIE' T-shirt
