Kirins: The Seer Of Serone Talks About Cruelty As A Teacher

The phrase “misery builds character” can be a two-edged sword. It can justify the need to not relieve suffering. In the case of a fantasy novel, conflict when written well can help a character grow. Sometimes it can send a character down a dark path. What matters is the choices they make, and how they choose to respond to trauma.

Kirins: The Seer of Serone talks about how suffering can go both ways: it can either destroy a living, thinking to be, or build them up. Sometimes a person can’t recover from a great violation of trust.
