Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Was he married to her yet? No, so then not abandoning family. I should note he took Jake with him and moved back home to his Dad. Case Closed. Unless you want to argue that he is related to the Prophets and therefore running away from them counts as abandonment. So never run away from his family before his job sure.

Now on the issue of the stereotype. First, I don't believe its consistent with the character. Second, I am not sure I agree with u on how stereotypes work. They are broad strokes that paint whole groups of people, the individual details don't matter Stereotypes are not case studies where individual details are relevant. Sure they are individual details are present but when a stereotype gets used no one is thinking about the parts that make the case unique.
