* In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/interlude-24/ Interlude 24]] we see the first Wards team, and see what the program was originally about-giving young capes a chance to be safe and be kids. As Chevalier sadly notes, the program has departed a lot from its original roots. Worse, of those kids, at least half of them are dead by the present day-horribly so, in the case of Mouse Protector.

*** A particularly vivid illustration of her life before she joined the Undersiders comes at the beginning of [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2012/08/02/interlude-13%C2%BD-donation-bonus/ Interlude 13-1/2]], when she visits her mom while hiding behind her PerceptionFilter.

During this chapter, it is also mentioned that her mom used drugs and alcohol while pregnant with her, which resulted in her [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny attention deficit]].

** Even worse: [[spoiler: Grue wasn't going to go to the oil rig. The only reason he joined the fight was because Taylor asked him to. Grue was going to leaven. Taylor told him he would be useful in the fight. It wasn't just another loss, but a loss that was because of her]].

* After [[spoiler: Tailor leaves the Undersiders]] Bitch is in denial, convinced it is some kind of ruse. When she [[spoiler: publicly announces her intent to become a hero]], removing all doubt, we hear all the dogs in Brockton Bay begin to howl, responding to Bitch's grief.

** Even worse, we actually see the dogs die in 8.5. Bitch saves a grievously wounded Taylor from drowning, but they're now alone with [[EldritchAbomination Leviathan]]. Bitch is forced to throw her dogs, the closest thing she has to family, into combat against a [[CurbStompBattle far superior foe]] and has to watch as they are [[CruelAndUnusualDeath literally torn to shreds]] right in front of her. On top of that, it's all futile; the ''only'' reason they survive is because [[PhysicalGod Scion]] just happened to show up right then, and she finds out shortly afterward that Taylor is TheMole. The kicker is the sheer ''desperation'' she shows when going at Leviathan:

** All we know about Tattletale is that she comes from a very rich background. Something truly terrible must have happened to cause her trigger event and have her prefer to live on the street then go back home.
*** In [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/03/12/scourge-19-7/ Scourge 19.7]], Tattletale reveals that her older brother committed suicide for reasons no one could figure out. She mentioned to her family that she had noticed him acting different before he died, and in their grief, they blamed her, calling her stupid for not noticing and saying something about it earlier. She had her trigger event after spending night after night agonizing over how she should have figured out what was going on with him and told someone. When she finally got her powers, she could see how everyone was acting fake after her brother's death, especially her father, who realized that she had powers and started pretending to be affectionate towards her in order to get her to use her powers for his benefit, at which point she ran away from home. It also turns out that the reason Tattletale has always gone out of her way to help Skitter/Taylor from the very beginning is that she could see immediately that Taylor was trapped in the same state of hopeless despair that her brother was, and feels driven to save her because she couldn't save her brother.
