To get you guys excited for Infliction, I’m going to start dropping breadcrumbs as we get closer to the release date. Which I still don’t know for certain, but rest assured, it’s closer than any of us think. These guys are ready to come out and play. For a little refresher, I asked my cohort, Quamaine, to interview Garik. Let you guys get reacquainted with the Inbetween’s smoothest talker. Listening to this man talk makes me blush.
Quamaine: Name a song that describes your life the best.
Garik: “This Calling” by All That Remains
Q: What is one of your most painful memories?
G: My first night inside the compound. It was constantly noisy. My brethren appeared and vanished without warning—often mid-conversation. We’d been forbidden to use powers in the nursery—that much I remembered. The rest of it is a vague recalling of what they taught us, but no real memories until the first night I spent as a mature incubus.
Q: How would you change one aspect of your life to make it better?
G: It’s isolating, that’s for sure. We’re constantly surrounded by people, yet never have the time to bond with them—save a few.
Q: So what’s your day job? Does it pay well?
G: An incubus is paid in the sighs of women. It’s incredibly rewarding in its own ways.
Q: Oh, well, there’s that . . . . Now that the cat’s out of the bag, what was the first time like?
G: Terrifying. I’d been amongst the mature incubi for less than an hour. Pain I’d only felt once before—when the bonds were put in place—seared my arms. When I stepped out of the fog, I faced a nude woman. I’d never seen a woman before then.
Q: How would you describe the connection you have with your customers?
G: ‘Customer’ implies payment. My callers shaped the man I am now. Their generosity and trust means the world to me, even if they think I’m a dream.
Q:What is your absolute favorite part of a female?
G: The tremble along her inner thigh at climax.
Q: Have you ever found yourself falling in love with your clients or have feelings of intimacy toward them?
G: I love them all in a way. One can’t help it when they see so far into the soul of a person.
Q: What are the stranger things women have asked you to do?
G: Anything involving feet confuses me. Generally, so long as they’re having a good time, I am too.
Q: Why do you think women summon you?
G: Wolfrik has a theory—each caller’s heart longs for a quality certain incubi possess. I know beauty in ever woman. There are too many who don’t see what’s in the mirror in the morning. I make it easier for them to do that.
Q: Do you see yourself doing something very different five, ten years from now?
G: Deryck and Wolfrik think we’ll find a magic well of women capable of freeing us. I’m a realist. My callers will still see me every night when they lay down their heads. It’s the only truth I can guarantee for the future.
For another refresher on Garik, the gods, and the laws governing the incubi, make sure you’ve read—or re-read—Enslaved before Infliction is released.
