Correct

On the note that halfbreeds are unnatural and unusual I'd say I have the upper hand on most works of fiction. In any D&D game you'll have both Half Elves and Half Orcs with no explanation as to how they came to be.
I have a halfbreed that came to be with a rather complicated story of war, racism and magic.

Uh, huh?

In any game that deals with half-Elves and half-Ogres, I know exactly how they came to be.

Some human male/female and some male/female Elf or male/female Ogre got busy and together a child was spawned.

I think the ligers were forced at gun point.

Heh, alright alright.

So, we have this librarian who is doing something that hasn't been done yet in the 3000 years since this major conflict... putting together a Collected Work of the Great <Insert War Title Here>. Up to this point, any writings were merely accounts of things happened, but not a collected piece of historical work or accounts. Are we on que here?

I think a fair number of us would like to see a correlation between the historian and the war, with some major or minor relative apart of the conflict or whatnot... but I still see your point as well. I suppose the dramatic side of me wants there to be some link... no matter how remote or distant.

Anyways... continue on Havoc (and let slip the dogs of war!).

You are more or less got it right, yes.

*Sigh* How's this for a link: He's an elf. It were his people that drove the Katori to Kaor in the first place.
