After despair… comes fear.
Fear… leads to anger as Yoda might say. It’s interesting that on this quest Shaohao’s confrontation of anger (to come) isn’t born from that.
I think what I’m appreciating the most about these stories though is the fact that he’s not some epic warrior like I mistakenly imagined as I played through Panderia. He’s a Pandaren leader who is simply worried for his people. A “man” born with a silver spoon in his mouth who must now rise above the threat that we all get to see rising on the horizon.
