** Taylor's mom is dead, and her best friend betrayed her and joined a group of bullies. She has to go through sheer hell everyday. She was locked in a locker stuffed with used tampons, and despite everyone seeing it happen, no one got a teacher or tried to help her. She actually began to have a panic attack as hours went by and no one came to help her. It caused her trigger event, and the resulting senses from the bugs nearly caused her to have a mental breakdown and she was actually hospitalized. Despite all of this, no teacher would help, one of the bullies lawyer father got them off, and things just kept getting worse and escalating. Things have just gotten worse and worse for her throughout the story, and she feels extreme guilt at the things she has done. She has outright stated that she doesnít think she deserves to be happy.

** Bitch was abandoned by her mom, and shuffled around from foster home to foster home because she simply wasnít good looking enough for others to want to adopt her. Unable to socialize, her only friend was a stray dog that she took care of and who was trapped in a pool drown by a foster mom to punish her for not obeying her. Her trigger event caused her pet to go wild and massacre her foster mother and siblings. She has been on the streets ever since and her power has actually made it almost impossible to connect with people. In her interlude, she privately wishes she could be closer with the rest of her team, but knows she will never belong. It says something that her screwed up relationship with Taylor is the best human relationship she has ever had.

* After [[spoiler: Taylor 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.

* From [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/interlude-26-donation-bonus-1/ Interlude 26 (Donation Bonus #1)]], [[spoiler: Defiant]]'s reaction to [[spoiler: Dragon]]'s death. [[spoiler:Saint]] dismissal of his feelings as [[spoiler:"fetishes and self-delusions"]] just makes it worse.
* Theo's thoughts at the beginning of [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/interlude-26a/ 26a]]. Bet you never thought you'd be sad about [[spoiler: Empire Eighty-Eight.]]
* [[spoiler: The reason Scion looks so sad? He's actually one of the twin power-granting entities, and his counterpart has died. His species is on the brink of extinction and his only purpose in life, however destructive, has vanished.]]

* Speck 30.7, [[spoiler: Taylor has just led everyone to beat Scion and save the multiverse, but her brain has been so fried and fixed into combat mode by her overuse of her passenger that not only can she no longer understand language or recognise people, but she looks at people and can't even interpret basic actions anymore. She hears the deafening noise they make, and sees them throwing their arms around each other, and simply thinks how unsurprising it is that they turn to in-fighting as soon as the threat is beaten]]. The fact that the entire multiverse is celebrating their miraculous victory, all enmity forgotten, and the one responsible for it is incapable of seeing anything except violence is a cruel twist even by Worm's standards.

* 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.
