Family or lover?

How would you feel if you had to not only accept, but also witness on a daily basis, a member of your family doing something that goes against your beliefs? I posed this question to Luke, from Twisted Bloodlines, who is doing exactly that. Here is what he had to say :
I wouldn't say it goes against my beliefs as such. The very job I hold, enforces the law against mage mixed breeding. Having my own sister doing just that, is a risk not only to her, but to myself as well. I'm far from innocent on the subject, having fallen into a similar situation myself, but I rectified my own mistake. It's not just because of mage tradition, I mean, why would you want to mate with an animal? They are so primitive. The panthers watch over every aspect of their females lives, they are barely allowed to be three feet away from the males, without being possessively dragged back, to be by their side. Its disgusting! Callie could be someone magnificent, powerful and independent, with no male dictating her every step. I make no attempt to hide my distaste of the panthers, clearly they don't think they are powerful enough, and need to breed with the mage's to achieve more. I know they despise me living under the same roof as them, which makes it all the more fun for me. I can only hope Callie, comes to her senses and ditches the panther for a more suitable companion. I don't hold it against her, she was after all dragged into this mess by Deacon. Before that, she was completely oblivious to the world of panthers and mage's. She wasn't even aware of my job, before she made the mistake of breeding with the panther. Would I change my views on this for her sake? Not in a million years.

So there you have it. Luke as opinionated and hostile as ever. His grudge against the panthers doesn't seem to be diminishing any time soon. We can only sympathise with Callie, torn between family and the man she loves.
