|Meet Jaxson, one of the leads in Deanna Dee's|
geek-flavored romance Finish Him.
Sup, Jaxon here. My life is shrouded in mystery. I’d tell you more, but I’d have to kill you. Kidding, but seriously, it’s top secret, at least for now. So who am I? I’m a guy in his mid-late twenties who enjoys having fun.
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? I hate watching people suffer. If there’s anything I can do to prevent or stop suffering, I’ll do it.
Where would you like to live?
California would be cool. I’ve always wanted to try serious surfing.
What is your idea of earthly happiness?
An earth where people are comfortable and safe.
The quality you most admire in a man?
I appreciate guys who treat people (women especially) well.
The quality you most admire in a woman?
I love women who are genuine, pure, if you will. I don’t want to have to wade through layers to find the real person underneath.
Your favorite virtue?
Resilience. Strength is good, but if you don’t combine it with fortitude, you won’t stay upright for long.
Your favorite occupation?
Something that involves keeping people safe.
Your most marked characteristic?
Probably my odd humor. I say the oddest things at the oddest times. No apologies.
What do you most value in your friends?
That we’re almost like brothers. I work with most of my friends, and it’s good to know they’ve got my back.
What is your principle defect?
I can be over-protective. It comes with the territory, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and such.
What to your mind would be the greatest of misfortunes?
Realizing I’d let someone get hurt, especially if I could have prevented it.
What would you like to be?
I’d like to be a dragon. Barring that, I’ll settle for happy and healthy.
Who are your heroes in real life?
People in law enforcement. They are often the unsung Heroes of the world.
Who are your favorite heroines?
My mom is my real life heroine. From fiction, I’d have to say Elisa Maza from Disney’s Gargoyles. It’s a weird choice, but I loved that show when I was a kid. Elisa kicks some serious butt, and she’s fiercely protective.
What is it you most dislike?
I dislike putting people in harm’s way, whether it’s physically, emotionally, or otherwise.
What natural gift would you most like to possess?
I’d like patience in abundance. Sometimes, I feel like patience slips away from me, and I absolutely need it.
How would you like to die?
Making sure someone else had the chance to live.
What is your present state of mind?
Ready. I’m settled, but things could change at any moment. If they do, I’m all set.
What is your motto?
Last one in is a rotten apple. I’m not too fond of eggs, but I like the expression.
Deanna Dee is strictly human and does not, to her knowledge, own a hyena. She lives by the sea, which she takes full advantage of in the summer time. People, reading, and pop culture make up the shameless downtime of her life. The rest of it is writing, and she’s okay with that.
