We can see him as a symbolic scapegoat or sacrifice, who is forced to suffer for the sins of the clearly repressive social system during the war, or immediately after as it attempts to cover up the past. This view of Septimius as a sacrifice, destined to suffer for social repression, links into his own view of himself as a messiah ‘lately taken from life to death, the Lord who had come to renew society’.

She sees him as a “foolish man [who is]... never tired of playing god with his children” (24). This indictment of Baba’s method of discipline is seen as an authoritative display of arrogance. If grandma who is Baba’s step-mother and who should know him very well; should make this indicting statement about him, then Baba’s authoritativeness is morally or socially unacceptable and is therefore questionable. Grandma is seen as a person who has a mean disposition.
