With the recent introduction of the sole survivor of the group that escaped the Glory Bell orphanage, the authors introduced a potentially really important new character into the story. He's deranged, talks to people who aren't there and most of all he appears to be dangerous. And still, Emma and Ray are set on having this guy be their tutor/mentor on their journey to the next shelter. So what do you all think his role in the future of the story will be? Will he become a "main side character"? Will he die in the future? WIll they be able to calm him down completely? Personally I think that Ray and Emma will be able to calm this guy down after a while. He is what Ray would've become if it weren't for Emma's and Norman's influence. There's a lot of interesting conversations to be had here and I do think he'll be crucial to the further development of Ray's and Emma's survival/combat skills as well as their characters in general. I think the story of his escape and the death of all of his friends has a lot of potential and may tell us a lot about the Demons.
