Meet Joey, one of the main protagonists of Phobic Wars
'Joey was a smart, mature and well adjusted individual.
He was going places in life, so long as there were no roaches involved. He had the potential to be a great leader of men, either in the political arena or in business, he could achieve anything. However, these episodes made Joey and his nearest and dearest wonder what he would amount to; surely no person could feel safe if the person in command responded like this to a diminutive insect?
What would this be interpreted as? How can you respect someone who is so frightened of an insect? Is the sign of some fragility a positive trait? This was not a question that needed answering, however Joey pondered on it, on his weakness.'
