For example, on pages 183-184, Anna is dressed as a kitchen maid and has a flask of poison to kill John. She does this because her mother, Irene, wanted to kill John because he insulted the Ducai. Anna is unfortunately caught and Anna and Irene are sent to a nunnery. I think that if Anna had not been caught, she would rule in a more efficient way. Also I think that Anna would not die by cutting herself with a poisoned arrow while hunting the way that John Comnenus II did.

Not knowing the explanation behind Anja’s actions, Artie is lead to believe that friends and neighbors blame him for Anja’s death and admits that he has turned his back on his mother in moments when she desperately needed to feel loved. Artie’s newfound sense of isolation is shown through his illustrations of people’s distorted, inhuman faces. It can be inferred that Artie’s disconnect is a result of the overwhelming guilt he feels after taking responsibility for Anja’s suicide. In the last three panels of the comic, Artie is depicted as a prisoner within a jail cell, crying out, “….You put me here….shorted all my circuits….cut my nerve endings….and crossed my wires!....You murdered me. Mommy, and you left me here to take the rap!!

Many assassinations are talked about such as the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X and so on, but one assassination that is barely touched is the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. Alexander was a secret officer who stopped crime. He also knew
When Anja thought nothing was left, he told her she would survive with him, that together they would make it through the war. Anja came through and survived with him.

Historian Michael WOod describes the feeling as “a stirring… a meaning for remorse” (Doc C). This means that Asoka felt remorseful in his conquest, and that means he could not have been ruthless if he did feel sorry. And more than that, “Asoka ceased to indulge in wars of aggression.” Not only did Asoka feel guilty, he stopped fighting at all. Asoka didn’t want to suffer any more guilt or pain for his lost soldiers, and he accomplished that by halting any further acts of violence. Some may argue otherwise, that Asoka was a ruthless bloodthirsty conqueror.
It would break their hearts and lives. It would take away everything that they have left in this world.” Therefore, even though Ama is asking for a veiling of the truth, she does so out of respect for the elders and their beliefs. This respect runs deep enough that Ama is willing to accept her banishment rather than tear apart the world the elders have tried desperately to maintain.

Clearly he did not have the right coping skills and support to teach him how to deal with them.
