Hello. My name is Violet, and I was born into a world you may not understand.

You are all gonna die!

I think I had to know what I was willing to die for.

Killing is what I do. It's what I'm good at. I am a titan, a monolith. Nothing can stop me.

(pointing out tattoos on her fingers) "Comrade" [pinky], "lover" [ring], "wife" [middle], and this one [index].... This one was going to say "mother", but then I got sick, and all that became impossible.

Because these moments, as beautiful as they are, they're evil when they're gone.

Is that all you've got?

You think those people are bad? Well let me tell you something. The real monster you don't want knocking down your door is me.

When I was a kid, when I was just a little girl, I used to dream about this old, dusty road. And this road would go on as far as the eye could see. There were all these little white flowers growing around the edges. And it was such a peaceful place. But then you realize, when life settles in around you, places like this... doesn't exist.

Nerva, listen. You know it doesn't matter for me. I'll be dead in thirty-six hours, no matter what. But every human for a quarter mile doesn't have to die with me.
