Check history, that has happened. You off the right person at the right time, and people have gone to war for that. Though I don't recall his father mentioning that. He talked about how Iskend is claiming more of Starram due to higher population. While some groups there rattle their rhetoric and slogans, if they tried to take Starram it would not work.
The Iskendis would take over Starram faster by populating it, since they have large families. That's why a few pages page I showed the man with a van full of kids filling up with gas.
A lot of this story is about making and breaking stereotypes. People are complex things with complex histories that affect them to their general disposition.
Over the years I've seen the same formula over and over again, but it's for a reason of appealing to the masses to gain bank. If no money is involved, let's try to make characters that are "Oh I know a person like that".
Let's hope I can pull it off.
