        I'd say that all of the incarnations of the champion are primaraly
martyr figures, and Caesar isn't realy one of these. But, I guess that
doesn't realy matter that much.
        There's also Jimi Hendrix. He's certainly one. You could also include
(though I'm a bit dubious on this one) Curt Cobain to the martyr list.
Another dead (martyr) singer. I guess he'd fit - many of the characters
have a J and a C or both, in their initials. Now if only I could find
some kind of significance in these two letters?
        Er...I think I may be reading a bit too much into it now. But I guess
that it's almost impossible to tell what's being "read into" a text and
what's not...
