      In addition, his origin borrows many elements from my favorite book, "The Count of Monte Cristo".

    Great book. What elements of that story do you see in the origin?

It is a subtle resemblance, where circumstances differ, but the basic concept is the same. In both stories we have a protagonist in the prime of his life, who although very intelligent, has a narrow view of the world. He is eventually imprisoned and in captivity, meets an old and wise man who helps him escape and at the same time also helps him to expand and redirect his own potential. And it's the death of this wise old man that ends up guaranteeing the means so that the protagonist can escape captivity.
