    • At the same time, Mao is unable to read Ciaran's thoughts. Instead, the latter's presence subjects the former to agonising pain.

  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: Ciaran to Zero in chapter 16.
    Ciaran: You parade yourself as being a 'hero for justice'. But I have to ask: who's form of justice are you using; yours, or the Japanese? Your first target, your very first target, was Clovis, an Imperial Prince and the Viceroy. If you wanted to cripple Britannian rule, you could have gone for any other target. Maybe start off small: a local politician or two. Maybe a police official or two. But instead, you choose to go right for the very head of government. That tells me one thing about you: you've got a grudge, plain and simple, against the Britannian Royal Family.
    Zero: So what if I do? Does it change anything?
    Ciaran: It changes everything! You're using these people, these people who want their God-given freedom, and you're using them to seek revenge. You're nothing but a fraud.
    Zero: A fraud?
    Ciaran: These people admire you, they put their trust and their hope in you. But you're playing them like a fiddle. They look to you to give them the future they could only dream of, but we both know that you'll give them nothing of the sort. Their fight is for your own selfish reasons, nothing more. You can't liberate these people, because you never intended to!
