**[[spoiler: considering the concept of the prince of Zahard and Zahard one true son exists it is entirely possible they are not made sterile because the one man they are allowed to love hasn't reached the top yet.]]

* Alternatively, they might think that tormenting him enough will turn him into an emotionless killing machine, which it seems is what they REALLY want. All the training and isolation are meant to accomplish is to make him someone that doesn't care about anything except the goal they've been driving into him for years, so they don't have to hang the threat of his friends' lives over him.

[[EvilCannotComprehendGood Which doesn't seem to be working in their favor, because Baam simply isn't like that]] - even if he seemed a fair bit out of it at the start of Season 2, his better nature rather rapidly reasserted itself. Hwa Ryun and Ha Jinsung, at least, seem to have accepted that this approach is doomed to fail, and perhaps also realize that [[ThePowerOfFriendship Baam around his friends and allies is stronger than Baam in isolation.]] (Especially since said friends are no pushovers themselves.)

* How much of the "Baam grew up in a hole" thing is allegory/metaphor, and how much is literal?
* If the world where Baam and Rachel came from had no light, where did the food come from?
* Why does the Tower have a day/night cycle?

* The reason that the princesses of Zahad aren't allowed to be with a man is to prevent them from becoming pregnant. So why not use some form of sterilization? ''Surely'' they can do something like a tubal ligation.

* Even if Baam becomes far more powerful than anyone else, that doesn't mean he has the political clout or skill to be in charge. Killing Zahard would still destabilize the power structure in the tower. Opportunists in FUG would figure they can take advantage of that and avoid getting killed by Baam later (especially since he doesn't know many people in FUG). Revenge-focused FUG members might not care if they get killed as long as they have revenge. And of course there's the fact that Baam doesn't seem the type to kill others normally, so FUG might be safe from death even if they force him to kill Zahard. They just have to ensure they can threaten his friends which is so far easy enough no matter how powerful Baam might get.

****There are multiple ways to interpret this. One is that Rak's opinion changed over time. Another is that he felt Baam tossing aside Black March showed an attitude unworthy of proper prey.

*** Just because it wasn't show on-panel doesn't mean it wasn't discussed at some point. Her attempted killing of Koon was VERY recent, chapter-wise. In the months since Koon's 'death', I'm sure they've talked about hundreds of things. If the author wants us to know, I'm sure it's going to come with some kind of flashback when one of Team Leesoo comes face to face with Rachel.
