What is your story?
My story is found in The Lone Wolf
Who are you?
My name is Matilda Dulac. I’m the eldest daughter of Edmund and Mary Dulac.
Where do you live?
Well, that’s a little complicated. I was born on the planet Saltulle. The most infamous planet in the galaxy. The Mining Guild blew it up 10 years ago. Now, I live on board a small mining ship.
Are you the hero of your own story?
I don’t know. Depends on your definition of hero, I suppose.
What is your problem in the story?
Most of my problems are caused by Commandant John Riley. He’s psychotic & wants to murder the man I love and take over the Mining Guild.
Do you embrace conflict?
That would depend on what the conflict is. I don’t run away, anyhow.
How do you see yourself?
I’m very independent, confident, focused on my career. I’d like more out of life, but for now, it’s enough – mostly.
How do your friends see you?
The few that I have see me very much as I see myself.
How do your enemies see you?
I hope I don’t have any of those.
What are your achievements?
I joined the Mining Guild when I was 16 and made foreman faster than anyone in the history of Saltulle. After leaving there, my career took off even faster. I’m the youngest female Commander in the Mining Guild and I’d like to become a Captain.
What do you believe?
I’m a little embarrassed to say that I believe in love at first sight.
What makes you happy?
Wil makes me happy.
What are you afraid of?
I’m afraid that somehow Riley will be successful and take Wil away from me.
What makes you angry?
John Riley makes me angry. The old weasel is slick and has stayed a step ahead of us. He’s a snake and nothing would make me happier than killing him with my bare hands.
Have you ever failed at anything
You’re kidding right? All the time.
Has anyone ever failed you?
Yeah, when Wil gave up and left 10 years ago. That hurt so much, I made myself forget him.
Do you like remembering your childhood?
I don’t know how my mom did it, but she made growing up in a hellhole a wonderful experience. I had a great childhood and I hope when I have kids I can do the same for them.
Did you get along with your parents?
My folks are the most incredible people I know. Even if they weren’t my parents, I’d be friends with them.
Who was your first love?
I fell in love with Wil when I was a girl. But he left.
Was there a major turning point in your life?
When Wil walked onto the mining station and I saw him again after 10 years.
What is your favorite scent? Why?
Wil. I used to think he wore cologne, but it’s just him. It’s the most erotic scent I know.
Name five items in your pockets.
I believe in traveling light. However, I’ll always have my communicator wherever I go. If I’m going out in a hostile environment, I’ll have my weapon, stasuit, water and food.
If you were stranded on a desert island, would you rather be stranded with, a man or a woman?
Women don’t like me much for some reason. I think I intimidate them. If I had to be stuck with anyone, I’d like it to be Wil. He’s interesting, intelligent, funny and knows more about survival than anyone else I know. He’s also dead sexy.
How do you envision your future?
I hope we have children one day – and a quiet life somewhere.
