Aki loves Old Earth power metal.  He’s a bit OE-obsessed.  Aki was the kind of kid who always wanted to be a paladin.  As usual, life turns out different than planned, despite our best efforts.  You should be able to easily imagine Aki sitting with his nerdy OE-style headphones on, listening to the song below.  ((And you – if you don’t like power metal, why are you even reading this comic? ))
