Reconciliation

By:Dwimordene
 May, 4 2007

A journal for discussion of the story "Reconciliation."

   ~~~

Just what the hook says. I will try actually to reply to any comments in this journal.


Comment:
Imhiriel suggested Japanese Samurai.

Ahhhhh... Yes, that does fit very well!

I'm wondering, though, what was the social reasoning behind that custom? Why outcast once their master was dead? Are they considered "bound" or "owned" by their lord for all time, or could they leave a master for some acceptable reasons, as Andra almost does in "Kin-Strife" after saving Imrahil's life? It's hard for me to wrap my brain around this, it being so radically different from a modern Westernized mindset.

Um, well, I may be getting a bit too entranced by details in what is, after all, a fictional character and religion, but combing through Andrahar's psyche is so interesting...
