For Vampire Wednesday an Interview with Tabbruis, the Blood-Hunter Vampire in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido
EG: Hello! I thank you for stopping by today to talk with us on Mari Well’s Vampire Wednesday. I have some questions I would love to ask you.
EG: How do you say your name and where did your unusual name come from?
Tabbruis: (in a deep husky Middle Eastern accent):
First, let me thank you very much for your reception of my company. Now, Tabbruis pronounced correctly is ‘Tab-bree-us’. My name was given to me in Heaven. You see, before I fell to Earth and became a Blood-Hunter or Vampire, I was the Angel of Self-Determination in Heaven.
EG: I didn’t expect that answer! Could you tell us more about your past?
I have been on the Earth for approximately 8000 years alone and mostly a solitary individual. I once was a Blood-Hunter of Humans . . . but I turned against the life as a killer because I recognized my life was no better than others. I bear no ill toward Humans or Light-Bearers. Ever since, I have been a soldier along with my Blood-Hunter Brothers, Dmitri, Neal and Thomas. I have served in many wars and campaigns throughout the ages. Nevertheless, I keep to myself. I am tortured by my thirst and my isolation.
EG: Can you share one really good experience and one really bad experience?
The best experience beside from meeting my long, lost love Charmeine, was meeting my Blood-Hunter brother, Dmitri. We instantly became brothers low these many years. I believe, and probably so does he, that Dmitri is the wisest man on Earth. Many good times we have had on campaigns together fighting on the same squad.
The worst experience I have had is one that I expressed to no one before… Long ago, I was a Blood-Hunter on the hunt for Humans. In a small village I took the life of a husband and wife, when I was done, I saw a toddler crying over their lifeless bodies. To my great horror and shame, I was hit was a wave of self-loathing. The daughter shocked me into ‘the now’. I swore I would never take another Human life for my thirst! I was forever rocked to my foundation at what I was and what pain I caused in my debauchery!
EG: I know bad experiences can be tough to talk about, Tabbruis. However, they tell us a little more about what you have been through and shaped you for who you are today.
My bad experiences have been many because I was destined to live on this Earth with the need for blood and no one to share my life with. I was lost, empty and gravely alone. I had no idea that I had a family in Heaven. Loneliness can be torture! I do not know what I would do now without my wife and child. I am very fortunate that I have been redeemed with their love and comfort. I am the happiest man on the Earth in my Charmeine’s arms.
“The Light-Bearer Series”
EG: Why do you think your experience in “The Light-Bearer Series” needs to be told, Tabbruis?
I believe “The Light-Bearer Series” is the story of two ill-fated, mixed matched lovers, Charmeine and I, who are total opposites. She is light, and I am dark. We had to fight Heaven and Hell to be together. Even though Charmeine and I were made for each other, we always had obstacle after obstacle to overcome. Some wonderful and terrifying things have happened to us during the process. “The Light-Bearer Series” is a story of love, mystery, and terror inspiring a true passion between Charmeine and I.
Charmeine and Tabbruis
EG: It was great speaking with you today. If you would like to share anything else please feel free to share it with us?
Just that our story has given a voice, picture and frame for telling of our life and love. It seems that even at the most desperate of hours, Charmeine and I have found the determination and hope to overcome our worst fears and enemies . . . But there is always going to be Evil on Earth. It is our job to combat the minions that inhabit the Earth.
EG: Maybe if you are not too busy, some of our guests in Mari Wells Vampire Wednesday blog would like to ask you a few questions also?
Yes, I would like to appease you and all the readers. I will answer any questions the audience would like to ask me. You are very kind indeed!
