So, this week, I was busy minding my own business, when I had a sudden revelatory thought about King Khanid and why he and his minions, i.e. Rubber-Duck of Fabai Alar Chakaid, seem to have such a particular dislike of the Minmatar.
My revelatory thought was this. King Khanid sees the Minmatar Republic as a personal insult. That is the cause of his being such a nuisance all the time.
“But how ?” you may ask. Simple !
You see, as everyone knows, the Minmatar were first encountered and conquered during the reign of Emperor Damius III Khanid, with the Minmatar home star system renamed in his honour.
The Damius (pronounced “Pator”) system, including the Minmatar homeworld of Damius IV (pronounced “Matar”), is of course now administered by the Minmatar Republic, which arose after throwing off the shackles of slavery nearly 150 years ago.
And poor King Khanid sees this as some kind of slight on his illustrious ancestor.
So, he has set himself the task of reconquering the Minmatar, to avenge the legacy of his forefather Damius, which is why he, and his minions, are such jerks all the time towards Minmatar people.
Really makes you think, doesn’t it ?
