In response to message #1
And here I am just remembering Corwin's promise to Matalde. And Matalde's promise to Corwin. And the brand inflicted on Akio by Corwin, which one could assume would come even more into play when he's acting directly against the inflicter of the brand. Akio overreached himself a bit, this time.
