This act that he deemed embarrassing has showed her that he is comfortable with her, and that he trusts her. He is branded a ‘good man’ when he rescues Anezka from a highly abuse client (Kupferschmidt, 2008, p. 65). This is yet another instance where his life is altered for the better as he is ecstatic that she feels this way about him, but that feeling is tampered with when he remembers all the lives that he has affected negatively by signing all those warrants. He ends up letting in these feelings of love and is determined to help those innocent people instead of ruin their

One of the story’s major characters suffers from epilepsy and addressed the looming possibility of an early death such as Fyodor had (Frank, “The Miraculous Years” 316-317).
