Feelings for our protaganist posted 27 April 2005 in Author Q & AFeelings for our protaganist by White Lord, Subdidact

I think the people who hate Kellhus a priori, based on simplistic/unrealistic or too-rapid expectations, are making a big mistake. This is a story of complexity, and expecting a character to be good or evil (or of that contrived "shade of gray" that's so popular right now) from the get-go is not exactly very realistic. Kellhus is a character who is growing and developing, and in ways which are so ambiguous that many will think he's bound to do good while others'll still keep seeing him as a monster for a good while. I can tell however that in the end (when he starts doing good -- or as much good as a human being (if he is truly human <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->) can be expected to do -- for sound motives that have nothing to do with self-interest) he'll be much more appreciated precisely because he was able to shed all that made him truly alien and "evil" to begin with. view post
