The news the orphan boy, Zhao, hears of his true origin brings him to
avenge
his parents and the Zhao clan by killing General Han Jue (or Tu'an Gu.) Through drama, Ji Junxiang expresses a tale of a boy
too stricken with grief to think
before killing General Tu'an Gu, in turn unknowingly killing his stepfather as a
consequence
.
When the character Inigo Montoya was a child, a man killed his father in a duel. From this point on, he is set on
avenging
his father and killing his father's murderer.
-In other words, how can you distinguish when the artist is trying to depict
