Less than 50 years after that, [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI events far to the west]] [[UsefulNotes/RedOctober will bring down the Tsar]] and eventually give rise to [[UsefulNotes/JosephStalin some Georgian with a nice moustache]], who will take a far more mitts-on approach to the area. Just 20 years after that, the area's menfolk [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII will be severely depleted in another war against Germany]]. Less than 20 years after ''that'', the Aral Sea – featured prominently in the Twins' Story – will become the subject of disastrous [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet efforts to irrigate semi-arid lands for cotton production]] which shrink the sea and turn the area into an even more inhospitable wasteland.\\\

Added DiffLines:

* CoordinatedClothes: Azel and Baimat wear clothes and hats with similar design and patterns (also seen on Amir's clothes). Of the Halgal cousins, only Joruk wears a turban and an unpatterned vest. We get an explanation in the author's corner of volume 9. Azel and Baimat (and of course Amir) hail from the father's side of the family, thus their clothes bear similar crests. Joruk on the other hand is a cousin from the mother's side.

* CulturalPosturing: Possibly crossed with MuggingTheMonster. At least some of the nomads seem to see the Russian newcomers not as people from [[TsaristRussia a huge nation with hundreds of thousands of soldiers]] but as little more than savages from the borderlands or another tribe that can be repelled by at best a couple hundred fighters with a few cannons. [[ForegoneConclusion Yeah]], about that…

* ForegoneConclusion: Not with the story itself, but the setting. In less than 30 years[[note]] (we don't have any concrete evidence as to ''exactly'' what years the story covers, but it hapens during the so-called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game Great Game]], and ''highly'' likely before the Anglo-Afghan wars (which would have prevented Smith's presence in the area). This gives an almost decade-long likely margin (between 1830 and 1838) for the series's epoch. The beginning of the Russian colonial conquest of Turkestan is normally dated to 1865.)[[/note]] the [[TsaristRussia Russians will have moved in, set up puppet-states (Khiva, Bukhara, etc.) or annexed the area, and started a long period of Russification and economic development]]. The nomads will be made to contribute taxes or be forcibly relocated somewhere much less pleasant if they rebel.\\\

* ShownTheirWork: As usual, Mori takes this to extremes and her work is that much better for it. For example, while Mori made the common mistake of depicting the Japanese hold of the bowstring in chapter 1, she was told about it, learned the correct, different Central Asian hold, and [[InvokedTrope specifically depicted it]] in chapter 62.
