My idea for my antagonist is someone who wants to decolonize this island by purging the human inhabitants bc (much like in real life) colonization causes huge problems for the indigenous peoples.
However, the settlers aren’t trying to be evil or oppressive. Because of disease and overpopulation, many were relocated by the royal government in their homeland, basically shipped off to sea and had to make their homes abroad.
Both sides are relatable, but as someone who cares a lot about sensitivity regarding colonialism, it makes me sort of dislike the settlers in this story because of my bias with American history of colonization.
Does this make a relatable/realistic struggle or is he too in the right?
