A big theme of Pageboy and the Rainblossom is what it means to be alone and how a person can carve out an identity for themselves. Not a lot of people like you in this world: you are an orphan and an outcast. What will you do with the small opportunities you get? What kind of person will you become? Why do you -really- want to be a hero? Even your small actions add up, and when judgment calls, who will have your back?
