--> ''Nashi put his arms around the giant, but couldn't reach even halfway. "It's all right to let it out," he said. "We all got you."
Ajani's shoulders bent and shuddered. He covered his eyes with one hand.
The rain began to fall.
The children sat with him, around him, a forest of hands on his shoulders and arms and back and knees. Saying nothing. Just breathing.

* In ''[[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/release-2016-10-05 Release]]'', Ajani finds [[spoiler: Chandra, Nissa and Oviya Pashiri being gassed to death]] and leaps at a guard, swinging his axe at the man's throat in UnstoppableRage. But then he sees the guard's life with his empathetic abilities and, ''while in the middle of the attack and desperate to save his friends'', he alters the swing's angle so that it lands a non-lethal blow on the man's chestplate instead. Because the guard isn't a Planeswalker or a villain, he's just a man with a family.

** From the same story, while Ajani is visiting Tamiyo on Kamigawa, he tells Elspeth's story to the children Tamiyo looks after, confessing that he feels that he should have died instead of Elspeth:

----*At the end of [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/homesick-2016-08-29 Homesick]], the Gatewatch has been informed by Dovin Baan of Chandra's less-than-legitimate past, and the incident that cost her her family. Dovin tries to justify himself by explaining how dangerous pyromancers are on Kaladesh. [[TrueCompanions Jace, Gideon and Nissa don't give a damn,]] and instead collectively decide to go after her, just to make sure she's safe. Because she may be impulsive and her powers may be destructive enough to take down ''[[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi]]'', but she is one of them and, as Gideon says, her heart is the size of the moon.

** Another thing to consider in the Dromoka is that unlike any other clan, the dragons and non-dragons freely speak to eachother, with mutual respect. Not even the Ojutai can claim that.

* In a particularly odd version of this trope, [[spoiler: some of Emrakul/Emeria's dialog in ''[[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/promised-end-2016-07-27 The Promised End]]'' implies that she gives Tamiyo the power to seal herself into the moon because some part of her is aware that the inhabitants of Innistrad don't want to be remade in her image.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Emeria:''' "This is all wrong. I am incomplete, unfulfilled, inchoate. There should be blossoms, not barren resentment. The soil was not receptive. It is not my time. Not yet." ]]
