@Kitsoru:

The term used to describe Duo was 初老. In the description 初老の男 means "a man past middle-age". Jim Breen's dictionary also states that しょろう means "age 40". Either way you look at it, he's over 40.

And I find it amusing that Tokita was contacted. He wasn't the one that wrote the scenario for the manga. But that did get me thinking if a line that Dorothy says, "I'd like to find out if General Kushrenada's and Zechs Merquise's plan to bring peace through war can actually work." will be the basis for part of this novel or not...

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.
