Problems and Challenges Varjak encounters many challenges when he goes to learn the way of Jalal. Varjak never lived in a city so he doesn’t know what it’s like.

He was always fed food. When he lived in the city, he was always hungry and didn’t get a lot of food. Once, he had to hunt a mouse to eat. Varjak also never fought before. He had to fight Razor to protect himself.
The Importance of the Journey Learning the way and going into the city are important because Varjak needs to save his family from danger. His grandpa, Elder Paw tells Varjak that since he is the youngest, he should be the one to learn the way of jalal.
