Christian context

The superhuman figure "author" appears in the books. He created the two parallel worlds and has a plan for every being, which is expressed in the fact that he writes a book for each in which he writes down the stories that have happened and will happen. The figure can thus be interpreted as a symbol for God. This is also clear from the fact that he has a son ("Aviad") who gives himself up as a sacrifice for others. Presumably it is supposed to represent Jesus Christ.
