Pelë Po’al (Inktober Day 17)

Pelë Po'al is the verb.

Pelë Po’al is the verb part of speech in “Milhamah: Fighting Words.” He was a stuntman actor for the Bavel Macrostructure’s propaganda machine. But he went on strike after not getting paid enough for jumping off Bavel’s  Migdal Tower. Once blacklisted, he illegally emigrated into ‘Ivrit territory, became an activist and worked his way up the ranks in the Holy Tongue Society.

Based on the פעל shoresh root and broader family, Po’al spends all his effort being a working class hero. He wraps himself in a flag of solidarity. His butt expands when he unleashes power, and that also cushions him from steep falls.

Po’al’s fighting style is daring and reckless. He crams lots of actions into a short amount of time. But he often errs by applying the Labor Theory of Value to battles. So he vainly toils away at hopeless situations until he grows feeble and faints.

Some Society members are skeptical of Po’al due to his focus on works over orthodoxy. Meanwhile, Po’al sees Shem ‘Etzem as a rival who is too rigid in his ways. Can the two eventually form a dynamic duo?

People worship the dictionary out of boredom. War causes the rise of Bavel. The Holy Tongue Society is holed up in the Binyan. Tiqwah and Shem disagree.
