A minor observation from “Preludes” - both Rok-Tahk and Jankom Pog have tragic backstories before their actual shared backstory. Jankom’s an orphan, sent off on a ship as a trainee engineer on a ship that seems to have no backup security/care except for a few pretty stupid drones (what would have happened to all these kids if he hadn’t been woken up? died, probably). Rok is a captive child who is sold from one slavemaster to another. How did she get there in the first place? Who first decided that she’d play the role of monster in exchange for small helpings of cheap, disgusting food? And we actually already knew this about Dal, who was collected and abandoned from a place of initial abandonment and abused throughout his life. Gwyn doesn’t have a separate backstory, but we’ve seen her tragedy unfold before our eyes...
Only Zero comes from a place of peace and comfort and gets actively taken out of it directly to the Diviner. I don’t know why that makes me sadder, somehow. The one character who knew what safeness could feel like was the one who was actively stolen away because of curiosity and then used to harm people.
And each of these kids is doing all they can to grow into better people.
