" This the end of Kullervoinen,
Born in sin, and nursed in folly.”
Here it is, my junior thesis: a loose adaptation of Kullervo’s story from the Kalevala.
A kid born into horrible circumstances develops destructive magical powers, and uses them to bring revenge down on the heads of those who mistreated him. However, in the process, he becomes the type of ruthless conqueror he initially strived to defeat. Through this transformation, he destroys everyone close to him and causes his own downfall.
There are a lot of things I don’t like about it now, but at least I did it.
