The category of the conflict would fit best with man vs. man. Although Percy is fighting the revolutionary government of France, he does not intend to change their form of government. He simply wants to rescue the young prince, son of Louis XVII and Marie Antoinette. As a British citizen who believes in monarchy, he wants to keep an heir to the French throne alive so that when the government does change, there will be a legitimate successor to King Louis. His fight is primarily against Armand Chauvelin who considers the Scarlet Pimpernel and his men to be a threat to the French Revolution.
