As the story progresses Chief explains more and more about the fog and how it is a dampener in his life. However until now it seemed it would only affect him and the way he saw the world.

There are many repeated phrases throughout Lullaby, one of which is “power corrupts.” The choice of word here is important with ‘corrupt’ suggesting that a person who holds power will be changed, whether this be positive or negative, they won’t be the same as before. Corruption could also be a reference to how he believes society or the government to be like. A character within the book who represents this is Nash, a paramedic turned necrophiliac who used the culling song to murder super models for his own pleasure showing that the whole system may be “corrupt.”

He made Jason the promise that all of the manipulators made their victims in Cormier’s writing: “you will fall, and complying to me is the only way to save yourself.” In this sense, it is evident that in yet another one of his stories, Cormier made use of the manipulator to drive one of his characters toward darkness.

According to Prejean, taking responsibility for one’s actions is the first step towards atonement, yet through the vocalization of Ryan she questions if any further steps beyond “[sitting] in a room with all the people...harmed by [the] crime” are truly necessary (Ryan 232). When presenting Matthew Poncelet in Dead Man Walking, he is originally portrayed as a cold heartless killer, a bigot who “is not a person [but]... an animal” (Dead Man Walking). But through the progression of the film, he becomes pitiable, finally reaching full escalation when recognizing responsibility for his role in the crime. By arranging her piece so the climax is his confession, Prejean is able to create a sympathetic atmosphere among her audience, while entwining reminders of what led to this position, through the belief that he has suffered enough and resolves the situation through his acknowledgement of his wrongs to the victim’s families. Prejean presents her case against capital punishment citing “killing is wrong, no matter who does it” and that personal responsibility is the only appropriate punishment for these “monsters” (Dead Man Walking).
