I had to go through the posts again to figure out where I was coming from. I find it ungracious of others when they find fault in people, or characters as this case might be, who are genuinely trying to fit another culture into their life. I really enjoy that Corwin takes cultures and entwines them with his own to create something new.
I understand that if a person takes from another culture, just taking the good stuff, but not the actual work behind it, that it's a horrible thing to do. When one learns, grows and start to love another culture it's a wonderful thing that should be praised.
