Character Interview with Caeles Novo from the Leadership and Redemption Series by Michael Cantwell

So what have you been doing lately, Caeles?

I still wander around stealing souls. But I no longer sit on the High Council. My wife Kalani is pregnant with our second child, so I am trying to stay close to home.

Do you enjoy removing souls?

No. I hate it. I wish the day would come when everyone could see the beauty in this world and I was forced to retire. Nothing would please me more.

Why did you fight so hard to return souls?

Everyone deserves a second chance, don’t they? I have only met a handful of people who I can say are pure evil. Everyone wants to justify why they get off course. They all have a reason. I never considered myself the world’s judge and jury. I’ll leave that to a higher authority.

Do you think being a father for a second time will change you?

I don’t know about me, but it has changed my wife. I think with our first child, Nicon, Kalani wasn’t ready to be a mother. She was still determined to be the world’s best soul stealer. I think her priorities have changed. She is embracing motherhood more this time. Me, I just do the chores around the house and hope I get a hot meal now and again.

Do you have a favorite song?

I love many styles of music. Of course I love the music from my good friend Dylan James and the Overture. I have signed copies of all their music at home. I like Billy Joel’s song, Summer Highland Falls, Dan Fogelberg’s, Part of the Plan and Too Much from the Dave Matthews Band.

Tell the truth, was there every anything between you and Rose?

I admit that I visit with Rose now and again. The good news is that she has resumed her life as Isabella and is working full time at the library. Doc Winfield was forced to find a new nurse. Isabella is working on her first novel about people who remove souls from others who no longer see the good in the world. Rose will always have a special place in my heart, but I have never been untrue to my wife. I know Kalani had her suspicions about me and Rose, but we were never more than good friends.

Lastly, how does one keep their soul? 

There is an old saying about doing the right thing while no one is watching. Someone is always watching. Do the right thing and do it with a smile.
