Kindo’s Patriotism

Patriotism does’nt bow to threats or suprior powers. As seen in the drama, Whitehead seemed more superior and had more powerful backups but their threats were mere chicken winds to Kindo’s actions; he stood his ground. His patriotism not only portrayed Kindo as a true wardlord, It revealed him as a capable heir to the throne of Mandoland.
