I can't help myself but love this particular NPC (or is that NPC's? :P) But I find Arron a little bit as one of the stereotipycal 'save all people' type. By this I mean "Despite his intimidating appearance htough, he's got a pleasant quality around him".
It fits perfectly which is the thing that got me. Nice one Echo!
An example of a mythological worldview misinterpreting scientific practices occurred in Africa, where an aid organization, focusing on slowing and stabilizing population growth, distributed abacuses with red and white beads corresponding to a woman's menstrual cycle. Women were instructed to move one bead a day, only having intercourse on days represented by a white bead. However, the experiment failed, and the population grew in the households using the abacus. The women believed the abaci were magical, and that they would be protected from pregnancy by moving a white bead into the place of the red bead before intercourse.
