->A year ago, I'd never have imagined it possible that one day I'd stand toe to toe with violent criminals and be ready to gamble they'd back off first. It's curious to think this was the result of one crazy mistake: a young girl, a child taking me for [[IAmNotSpock someone else]] - for a tough guy named [[HardboiledDetective Sainte-Claire]]. The creation of my pen. I'm a crime writer. I write [[InsistentTerminology graphic novels]]. That's crime thrillers with pictures - not in any way comics. You may have read one of them. A couple have been turned into films.
->When it all began, Sainte-Claire was the product of my imagination, only as real as the ink on a page. Now I think he's taken me over.
->No, that's not accurate. I know he has.

->This is not [[SmugSnake Dick Washburn]] you're seeing, not exactly. Dick has vacated possession for this bit of chat. Standing here is not Richard Godspeed Washburn, who sustained a nasty concussion on his fifteenth birthday, the very eve of the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Go Away War]], and who spent his next weeks in darkness and candlelight as the hospital he had gone to slowly shut down and ran out and fell apart, then grew to manhood in the new, broken world. This is not Quick Dick of the Harley Street Boys, who - before the orphanfinders came and settled him in a home of sorts and things got somewhat normal once again - could open the rear door of an army truck and pinch a pound of chocolate before the soldiers ever knew. This is [[MegaCorp Jorgmund]] itself, staring through Dick's eyes and measuring things as numbers and profit margins. Of course, Jorgmund is nothing more than a shared hallucination, a set of rules which make up Richard Washburn's job, and every time he does this - slips away from a human situation and lets the pattern use his mind and his mouth because he'd rather not make the decision himself - he edges closer to being a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive type C]] [[ThereAreNoGoodExecutives pencilneck]]. He loses a bit of his soul.

->'''Lilah:''' It's a survival thing. I made a lot of devil's bargains and I stuck to them. As a result, I live somewhat dangerously, and ''quite'' comfortably. My mother, who no longer recognizes me, has the best room at the clinic. I get up every morning, put on my game face and do what I have to.\\
'''Angel:''' Thing about a game face, Lilah, you wear it long enough, it stops being something you can put on and take off.\\
'''Lilah:''' Wow. We've spent so much time and money on you. You're so pivotal to the coming cataclysm, that I sometimes [[GoodIsDumb forget how dense you can be]]. The game face - the one I worked so hard to get - I became that ''years'' ago. Just like you've become simpering and good from yours. You're the new poster boy for human. Thank you very much. I don't want it.
