Who Are These People I Made Up Anyway? Part 7: Mrs. Och

Mrs. Och was such fun to write, but tricky too, because how would being immortal affect your moral compass and your ability to love and value life? Here she is after an alarming visit from the Prime Minister of Frayne, asking about Julia’s invented identity, the housemaid Ella.

She takes the revelation about Julia’s true identity better than the others. Living forever might somewhat inure one to surprise.

In JULIA DEFIANT, Julia is repelled by Mrs. Och’s vampiric habit of taking the energy and life force of mortals to sustain herself – wondering if she does it because she needs to, or just because she likes it.

Julia’s relationship with Mrs. Och is tense from the beginning and deteriorates from there. When Pia tells Julia that she is Mrs. Och’s dog, it hits a little too close to home.
