- I Am Not Shazam: Jenghiz Qan/ Genghiz Khan was a title, not a name. Most people don't know this, including the characters in the Game of Steppe, who are looking to recreate the historical character. Historically, Temujin adopted the title Jenghiz Qan, just as Alp as Temujin does in the game.
- Stoic Woobie: Alp's wife and son were killed by barbarians in Chapter 1, but other than taking revenge for them at the time, he doesn't let it slow him down much. Also, his whole empire was being conquered. Nor does he let being kidnapped to the future get under his skin.
YMMV / Steppe
