Symbols are everywhere we look. The Esau/Anglo-Saxon establishment that is at the top of the rulership pyramid of this world and their Luciferian agents have their symbols--a plethora of them (in terms of where they appear, which is everywhere you look when you're walking or driving down a busy street). I think it's fun to analyze the symbolism in works of fiction.
This comic I'm working on has its share of symbols and (I suppose) archetypes. For starters there are two different worlds or earths in this comic: one that is more of a fantasy-type world and the other more like our own world. The fantasy-type world (having some of the trappings we identify with this genre, such as knights in armor, castles, sorcerors, etc.) does not take place in the forgotten past, exactly. Nor does it have to be a parallel earth. It's whatever a reader wants to make of it. (You can do that with a work of fiction, more or less.) It's symbolic of what we sometimes fantasized about when we were kids (speaking in general terms here): a world different than our own, more ideal. Kind of like Narnia in the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.
In this other world the Sunsaints are an ideal order of soldier/priests. They are there to protect the weak and the defenseless; they're not there to primarily enrich themselves. Note that they are far away from the socio-political heart of the kingdom of Magdela; thus they are free from being caught up in the struggles for power that invariably go on there. The Sunsaints don't feel the temptation to take bribes or to corrupt themselves: that's the idea.
The Sunsaints are not trained like the soldiers in this world's militaries. They are not subjected to mind control, conditioned to kill whomever a superior officer commands them to. They only kill if they need to: for self-protection or to protect those who can't protect themselves.
The Sunsaints (in the fantasy-type world) are symbolic of the ideal military force, which sadly does not exist in this world; because they will not attack another kingdom or nation that has not clearly attacked them.
The various kingdoms seen on the map in Installment #2 can be stand-ins for the spread of the descendants of both the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah (from the Old Testament). The children of Israel were to become a nation and company of nations: they were to become great in the world. Perhaps I'll touch more on this in another post.
