this was an idea that's been bouncing around ever since I saw *doubleleaf
's interpretation of the Pieta; but I wanted to take a more familial bond akin to the actual statue.
And really, the themes of the books seamlessly fit in with this. Aliit ori'shya tal'din.
Family is more than blood. With as varied as the cast is, they're all bonded by the fact that they've been accepted
among the mando'ade as family, despite their backgrounds. Etain, Vau, Laseema, the clones, even Kal himself...
In another tangent, the clones gave their blood in sacrifice to the Republic, paralleling the original story of the cruxifiction. And likewise, there's pitifully few that mourn them as their loved ones.
...it sounded better in my head okthx
