TWOTS revisions

26 01 2009

Incase the earlier posts hadn’t given it away, the victorian era theme has been dropped in favour of world war 2 London, during the height of the blitz. 

This setting opens up more opportunities to tie the character to the world more successfully;

– The Pigeon King is now a soldier of ww1 retired through injury. To do his bit for the war effort, he trains carrier/homing pigeons for the British Army

– Although a “hermit” through choice he is typically patriotic and loves his country. 

This gives the character more humanity, and a motive to progress. It also makes the keeping of pigeons more relevant and important to the world of the story, and justifies their use as “soldiers”
