'''Carib:''' About as you'd expect. It's the sort of secret that gets heavier with time and age.\\
'''Han Solo:''' Yeah. I can imagine.\\
'''Carib:''' Excuse me, Solo, but you can't possibly imagine it. Every time one of us leaves this valley it's with the knowledge that every outside contact puts our lives and those of our families at risk. The knowledge that all it will take will be one person suddenly looking at us with new eyes, and the whole carefully created soap bubble of the ever-so-close Devist family will collapse into the fire of hatred and rage and murder.

->Today I slew my twin brothers seven times and nearly died four times at the hands of my twins. What kind of war is this that we replicate ourselves time and again, only to waste our own lives on axe blades dulled by endless internecine fighting? Which one of us represents the hopes and dreams of our shared parents? Is it truly death if I am reborn time and again?
->Am I more worthy of living or is my twin? Might we not ally ourselves--the Spawned--against the Firsts who recline on golden thrones, stirring themselves only to order us into fratricide?
->Perhaps we are no longer even dwarves. When a work of art is copied, and that copy is copied again and again, the results become gross parodies of the original.

->She had become friends with them, but did she even have the right to, when they didn't actually know her but only her predecessor? Wasn't she just a stolen soul in a stolen body with stolen memories and emotions? They seemed to know, but they didn't seem to mind. Did they not understand? Were they in denial? Or could it be that she was the same Rei Ayanami they had known after all? Could she actually be not just a replacement, but herself?\\
If she had her former self's soul, her former self's memories, her former self's emotions, could she be the same?\\
