    In my opinion, when there is conflict going on in the story and the protagonist is involved, it greatly impacts the individual's decisions and actions. My opinion could be supported with textual evidence found in 'The Day of the Pelican'. In chapter 10 of the book, the story goes to as how the Lleshi Family are now refugees in Refugee Camp.
