The words of Priff


For those of you who have not read The Silent Blade Chronicles, Priff is one of my main characters. She is a shape-changer, and as such is just as much beast as she is human. But as the young Priff finally learns to live with real humans for the first time in her life she begins to realise there is a vast difference between being human, and being an animal. Here are a few of her thoughts on the subject.

1: “If that stupid human had a proper sense of smell, he would know I was already mated!”

2: “Why do humans make their world so complicated, then complain about it?”

3: “Why do humans need so many words?”

4: Priff on the subject of cutlery. “Fingers used for lifting food, knife to kill, and me not need spoon thing, me have tongue for drinks!”

5: “Human city is strange place… one nest for work, another nest for sleeps?”

6: “What are clothes?”

7: “Human heads too full of stuff!”

8: “Think like beast in fight, or you die!”

9: “Priff likes human thing called love!”

10: “Of course me knows Mother Spirit… all beasts know her!”
