Okal Rel science fiction books - heroism, martyrdom and free will

Writer-daughter Jennifer Lott's 2013 Xmas gift to Lynda Williams was an Okal Rel quote of the day stack for 2014, featuring intriguing snapshots of the ORU adventure from all titles in the series: Saga, Legacies and online.

From saga novel Far Arena by Lynda Williams.

"Amel's a survivor." Erien caught himself wanting to rub his aching shoulder and kept still. "I had an argument with Amel not long ago in which I took Lurol's side about him being an involuntary martyr. He pointed out ways I, myself, have acted contrary to my own self interest. But everything I have done, I did because the other choices before me were worse. Perhaps his actions make just as much sense to him."

Jan 18, 2014 - Okal Rel Quote. Erien on Amel being an "involuntary martyr", from Part 5: Far Arena.

Commentary

Guilty about boosting Amel's already keen empathy for others back in Part 1: The Courtesan Prince, Lurol deems him an "involuntary martry" in Part 5: Far Arena, as the basis of her lobby to "fix" his psychological profile. In this scene, Amel's Reetion raised half-brother, Erien, re-assesses his natural sympathy for his foster mother, Lurol's, position.
