"I joined the order for strength,
not for weakness.
I can't afford that kind of vulnerability."


I think this is Johan's most interesting revelation during their entire reunion. Now I want to know what happened to him, dammit. *wry smile*

Expect my prompts about Johan during some upcoming Fishbowl!

>>I think this is Johan's most interesting revelation during their entire reunion.<<

*nod* Johan has a different perspective on what it means to be a paladin, and that's making life incredibly rough for him. When your whole worldview is predicated on strength, having that knocked out from under you is really hard. But I don't think he's attracted to violence for its own sake.

>> Now I want to know what happened to him, dammit.<<

I do know a bit about what just-recently put him into this situation; what I don't know about that is precisely why. At the beginning, I think Johan came out of a disadvantaged background and saw paladin service as a way of not being helpless anymore.

>>Expect my prompts about Johan during some upcoming Fishbowl!<<

I'm open to that possibility. Jot down what ideas and questions you have, and watch for opportunities.
