Hard to say, but torture does nothing positive for your psyche, obviously....

It's a tribute to W&R how well thought out the 5-issue story arc was. Redlance's capture and torture, in the story, sets up the conflict between elves and humans. But beyond that, it would later give us a healer--Leetah, and begin to help the two elf tribes assimilate(with Cutter & Leetah assimilating the best, heh).....

And in #4, we meet, however briefly, the Wolfriders' healer, Rain....and then understand what a loss that was. Without a healer, the tribe was especially vulnerable.

It's a tribute to Redlance he made it as far as he did. Tough cookies, these Wolfriders! Wink
