In Lusus Naturae, once the people of the village learn that the protagonist is still alive, they create a mob to go hunt her down. The townspeople were so distressed by the fact that the protagonist was still alive that they “[were] marching towards this house, in the dusk, with long stakes, with torches.” In the scenario, they were looking to kill the protagonist, believing that she was some type of monster, far too different from them for their own comfort. An event comparable to this occurs in the movie Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Once he finally had enough “evidence” (forged/ manipulated by himself) that the Jedi wished to overthrow him from his place as leader, he decided to order the army of the Galactic Empire to hunt down and kill all members of the Jedi Order.

The two boys then find Santiago, chase him to his house and stab him multiple times, killing him.
