(1) Being different leads
[Edited June 8, 2011]
a) dominant MICE quotient: Character, or Idea - The main character struggles to find herself and to find out if she is needed in a society where she is a minority or to join in exclusive society with people of her kind.
b) Primary conflict: Prejudice/persecution for those that are different.
c) Theme: We sometimes need the differences in individuals for the benefit of society. Rather than shunning all the different people and looking down on a difference, we need to learn to appreciate and figure out how such differences can benefit the society. If we were all the same, we would only need one or two of us. It is because we are different that we need each and everyone for the benefit of society.
d) Major World rules and limitations: Albinos are magical in this story and are weaker in the sun and stronger under the moon.
