->It was as if the galaxy had conspired to make sense of my disjointed, fractured, bizarre life. I had been [[BrilliantButLazy a wastrel Ketran gamer]]. I had been [[SoleSurvivor a survivor of mass destruction]]. I had been a [[TheCaptain Z-spaceship captain]]. I had been [[AndIMustScream a helpless captive]], [[LotusEaterMachine forced to be a new type of gamer]]. I had evolved into something the galaxy had never seen before, [[SapientShip a melding of many technologies]], [[MindHive the minds of many civilizations]], all flowing in and through a matrix of music. And now that strange resume seemed to match perfectly with a job that needed doing. [[BigGood I would be a peacemaker]]. And more: I would foster the growth and advancement of species. I would teach them the ways of peace. The massacre of my own people by the Capasins would not be repeated on any other world. [[BadassBoast Not so long as l was present!]]

->He begins with the man he is now: [[TheDitherer Joe Spork]], who did not murder his friend [[FrameUp but is accused of it]], and of things more desperate and vile which are not his fault; who shares his bed with Polly Cradle, and means to make that matter. He rolls his shoulders, sets his jaw and goes on.

->And leading the procession was [[ChurchMilitant Barry]] himself. Even from a distance he was easy to recognize. I'd sen more than enough of that jowly, self-righteous face when he had been glaring at me through the bars of a cage, not to mention disappearing beneath the wings of ravenous [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Deleters]]. Something had changed about him, though. There was something new and confident about the way he carried himself.
