I like el borak cause hes a little more moral than some other REH heroes (although this might make him less realistic). hes a good guy who tries to save people. i liked his rivalry with hunyadi. its clear he had a lot of respect for the hungarian.
id have liked to learn a little more about the greek culture in isolation but i guess theres not much space in a short story to explore that. the story is non-stop action.
Yeah he is the most heroic of REH heroes because he is so loyal to his friends, he feels strongly about his friends. Was it in The Daugther of Erlik Khan he finds Ahmed dying and chasies those englishman through everything just to avenge a friend.
He is both grim, not afraid to get his hands dirty and he has more morals than other heroes. Why i feel strongly about his stories.
He is not some clichè adventure hero who wisecracks,laughs through danger.
