My real name is Draven Andrew Wick, but I’m better known as the hybrid vampire, Raven Willoughby.
What do you want most?
Until today, I’d have said a secure job, a long neck and some blues playing. Now, I just want to live until tomorrow—preferably the day after, too.
Why is this so important to you?
It’s important because today, I reconnected with the love of my life. Cool thing, she still loves me, too.
What makes you happy or sad?
Finding Jamie again makes me happy. Realizing that I’ve dragged her into a mess and she could get hurt, makes me sad.
How do you treat the people in your life?
I try to treat people well. They say fame changes a man, I am trying to prove that it doesn’t.
Can people count on you?
Absolutely. I will drop everything to help a friend.
What makes you angry?
Moose and his damn biker gang. And, if I’m honest, freaking Erickson. Something doesn’t sit well with me. I’m doing him a damn favor and he treats me like crap.
Do you stand up for your beliefs?
Always. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be doing the job I’m doing. That I can’t tell you about.
What excites you?
Jamie Humphrey…. Damn, that girl grew up fine!
What do you do for a living?
I’m an actor who plays a hybrid vampire on a popular drama. It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s a steady pay check.
What kind of books do you like?
I don’t have a lot of time to read, but I like steamy romance novels. I know, call me crazy, but I like a happy ending. And the sex scenes give me some great ideas.
What kind of music do you enjoy?
Blues, classic rock, swamp rock—basically, anything good. Mostly like stuff from before I was born, but there are some really good modern bands around, just have to look for them.
What’s the one thing you’d most like to do before you die?
I’d most like to build a life with Jamie in it. I didn’t realize what all I’d lost until I found her again. She’s what’s been missing from my life all these years.
If you could, what’s one thing you’d change about yourself?
I’d gladly give up this side job I’m doing if it meant keeping Jamie safe. I’m stuck in it now. Got to play it through. It’s the only way to save us both.
