Could you say more about why Elric is repulsive? I mean, I know he's an 
antihero in the literal sense, intentionally being written to have 
opposite attributes to Conan, for instance, but I didn't catch any 
veiled plagiarism or excessive quotation, but that might be out of lack 
of familiarity with previous genre material.
