I Rose today mourning for the loss of a cousin, a dear friend, a brethren and mentor whose morals I myself strive to achieve as the New King of Scotland. For me, life without Duncan is like a winter’s night without the warmth of a fire, feels like a thousand prickling needles in my heart and is a world hidden in the depths of darkness absent from the rays of light and life.

This is discovered when the patriarch, Julian Hayden, says to his son Wesley “Ever since the war…Ever since Frank came home in a uniform and you stayed home, you’ve been jealous” (118). This favoritism shows what little respect Julian holds for his younger son that stems from Franks dominance between the Hayden siblings. Wes is constantly put down because of his brother’s achievements; these situations can either make or break Wesley. In all families, there is a member who thrives on ‘power trips’, and in this specific situation, it was Julian, “He wanted, he needed, power…he was a dominating man who drew sustenance and strength from controlling others” (20). Julian acquires his power through putting others down, especially Wes; this causes Wesley to have a lot of animosity towards his father.
