Conflicts should be grand.

Oh, you mean that little thing in that was used as a catalyst? And that small problem that she is not interested in a love affair?
Alright, let’s see. Instead of a message about the hero’s brother with Cerebral palsy (CP) the brother arrives in person to this place that does not accept odd behavior.

In general we try to be kind or at least polite. The barrier to let a character – especially the hero - go beyond what is social acceptable is quite high. And to make this look like normal… Ouch.
