   Vel the character is about contradiction.   Is he
man or dorf?   Is a peaceful genius or blood thirsty
warrior?  The two Vels are in many ways mirrors of
each other... they are what the other would have been
if different choices had been made.

  Haven and Dorfia are two different planets.  Haven
is space colony where humans, dorfs, enobi,
Pegausoids, whatever else might want to come along to
live in peace.   Vel was born on Haven because being a
hybrid is not really acceptable in Dorfan culture or
on Earth his parents wanted him to be safe.  As they
just went to Dorfia because events key to saving Haven
happened there.
