The Martyr & The Crown
I've always enjoyed the underdog, the Marty's of history, they have played an important roll in the creation of change. It starts with one voice, one belief. They may be good, they may be bad, but Marty's inspire change, from the Joan of ark to ghandi or Martin Luther King, all of whom inspired action and died for their causes. Their actions echo, charging and empowering change, opening doors once closed. It is this ideal that inspired the series, to show one rising up against a united two kingdoms, to prevail against all odds, or die and live as a symbol to those who need it most.
