Carbine Studios has released a fun Wildstar Q&A this week, in the form of an 'interview' with Liara the Aurin. The purpose of the interview is to give some background information on the Aurin and rather than release a typical lore sheet on Wildstar's race, they put together a really enjoyable Q&A session with Liara herself.
Check out a snippet from the interview, below:
Q: Alright, Liara, thanks for talking to me today. Let's jump right in. Can you tell me about your ears?
A: My ears?
Q: Well, yes. My readers are particularly interested in your ears.
A: [Sighs with frustration] Really? That's your question?
Q: We're all interested.
A: Sorry. I don't mean to be a Negative Nova, but it seems like everyone always wants to talk about my ears. I always catch people looking at them, too. It's so rude! I mean, it's like they've never seen a pair of ears before.
Q: Well, they are, er, breathtaking.
A: [Blushing] They are? Do you really think so? I mean, I've always thought they were one of my best features, and I do my best to keep them well brushed.
Q: It definitely shows. Are all Aurin so well, uh, endowed?
A: Well obviously everyone's a little different. But yes, we've all got ears. Tails, too. And since Arboria is covered in forests, things like ears and tails come in pretty handy. You ever try frolicking on the branches of a tree without a tail? I don't recommend it.
Q: Arboria? Is that the planet you're from?
A: The one and only! You've never been there? It's the most wonderful place in the whole universe! There are flowers everywhere, and the forests are the most beautiful things you've ever seen! At least, they were until...uh....
Q: Go on. Did something happen there?
A: Yes, something 'happened' there. The Dominion showed up and ruined it all!
Q: Sounds like it makes you pretty angry.
A: Angry? They make me absolutely furious! They just show up one day without an invitation, and then they start killing our forests with these great big, ugly machines. Some of those trees were personal friends of mine! I don't like thinking bad thoughts about anyone, but sometimes I wish that all of those Dominion bullies would just...just...well, just fall down and die!
Q: I can see this is upsetting you. Let's talk about something else. You're a scientist, right? Tell me about that.
A: Well, being an Aurin and growing up on Arboria means that I know a lot about nature. And when we joined the Exiles I thought it made sense to put all of that knowledge to good use. So I showed up at the Academy with a smile on my face and told them that I was ready to get to work and make a difference!
Q: What kind of scientific equipment do you use?
A: Well, the most important tool for any Academy scientist is the Scan-Bot. What a technological wonder! It's like having a cute little robot friend that follows you around and does all of the really boring work like tissue collection and biochemical analysis, leaving you free to do the really fun things like studying ancient alien civilizations. No respectable scientist goes anywhere without it.
The full interview is definitely worth a read but especially if you're one of the many fans looking forward to Carbine's upcoming MMO Wildstar. You can read it at http://www.wildstar-online.com/.
