Character Interview: Colin from TORN!

About TORN:

Swirling black descends like ravens, large enough to block the glow of the streetlights. A dull roar starts like a train on the 'L', a far-away rumbling that grows louder as it pulls closer, until it's directly overhead and you feel it in your chest, except this doesn't pass you by. Verity, white-faced and eyes blazing, shouts through the din, "Run, Mo!"

Mo Fitzgerald knows about secrets. But when she witnesses her best friend's murder, she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have guessed. To find the answers she needs and the vengeance she craves, Mo—quiet, ordinary, unmagical Mo—will have to enter a world of raw magic and shifting alliances. And she'll have to choose between two very different, equally dangerous guys—protective, duty-bound Colin and brash, mysterious Luc. One wants to save her, one wants to claim her. Which would you choose?

Character Interview: Colin

Welcome to Rex Robot Reviews, Colin! Can you tell us a little bit about your story in Torn?
Mo Fitzgerald was supposed to be a job. Somebody killed her best friend, and her uncle hired me to look after her. And he’s not the kind of guy you say no to. She seemed nice, you know? Quiet. No trouble. But it turns out there’s a lot more to Mo than meets the eye, and this isn’t just a job anymore.

Colin, tell us three fun facts about yourself that no one knows?
-I don’t cook, but I make a hell of a good chili.
-My vision is better than 20/20, so I have really good aim.
-I don’t own a computer and I don’t want to.

Can you choose three songs that could be found on your playlist?
-Boom Boom -- John Lee Hooker
-Devils and Dust --  Bruce Springsteen
-Nothingman -- Pearl Jam

Who is your favorite super hero and why?
Batman. He does what needs to be done, even if it isn’t pretty. He doesn’t expect people to throw him a party. He knows you need more than a pair of glasses to keep your identity hidden. I wish he’d lose the pointy ears, though.

Thanks for stopping by, Colin! Any parting words for our readers?
Same as I tell Mo: It’s good to have options. Expect complications. Know what you want, and be ready to fight like hell for it.
