Braven is the muscular, cheeky member of the rebels from the Secrets of Aurora series. He’s made us laugh with his quick wit and brought a light-heartedness to the group when things got difficult. So here he is, Braven Smith…
LJ: Let’s kick it off with a simple question. Marry, kill, kiss: Aurora, Vega, Maya?
Braven: Can I pick Vega for all three? Although, I think she’s the one who want’s till kill me sometimes. But she’s the one I’d marry one day. She just doesn’t know it yet. I’d probably kiss Aurora just to see the look on Fletcher’s face.
LJ: What do you most dislike about your appearance?
Braven: With gun’s like these what’s to dislike? No, seriously. Don’t tell anyone but I think my right bicep is a little bigger than my left.
LJ: Do you think you could have gotten through everything you’ve endured if you didn’t have your sense of humour?
Braven: I know it annoys people sometimes, but it’s what gets me through the hard times. I can’t stand seeing other people hurting or worried, and if I can just put the smallest smirk on their face it makes me feel better.
LJ: If you had one wish what would you wish for?
Braven: I’d wish Vega and I could settle down, get married, and have a family. I just want a normal quiet life with all of my friends nearby. She’d kill me if she heard me say that.
LJ: If you could be reading a book right now what would it be?
Braven: I’m not much of a reader. At school I was better at maths, and I prefer to take a hands on approach to learning.
LJ: When you’re not evading the Elite guard or trying to get to your next destination what do you like to do in your spare time?
Braven: I enjoyed training when I was on Utopia. Now my favourite past time is stirring up my friends. Maybe I need a hobby?
LJ: Do you ever miss your life on Utopia?
Braven: It was easier. I had a job, a roof over my head, and food in my belly. But I didn’t have a purpose like I do now. I don’t regret anything that’s happened, things happen for a reason.
LJ: How do you find the strength, determination and resilience to push on when so many would just give up?
Braven: Through my fellow rebels. I might be their leader and help make the big decisions, but if it wasn’t for them I think I would’ve given up by now. I admire Aurora’s determination, and all of us want to see her finish what she set out to do.
