Unofficial Challenge: A famous rebel
Inspired by the Warsaw Uprising anniversary I would like to challenge you to write about a famous, or infamous, rebel in your world. It can be someone who overthrew an evil empire, fought against oppression or anyone else. It can be someone who was successful or not, someone who fought for a lost cause or maybe there were real chances of success. I'm interested in seeing what made them a rebel. Was their country under occupation? Were they a member of an oppressed group? Did they just like fighting?
Think of the major powers and conflicts in your world. Who would benefit from opposing them? Who has the means to do so? Who wants to do so?
There is no physical prizes for the challenge. I will try to read most (maybe I'll manage all) entries and give critique to them. I may choose a favourite one.
