"But two of my favorite characters are Mireille and Mischka. These two young, fresh-faced twins were born without a moral compass. Where other characters display a range of expressions, these two sociopaths stare ahead blankly and make discomforting statements like, "Why shouldn't we murder an enemy that's surrendered?" and "We always wanted to take part in an execution." Palom and Porom they are not. Note that these amoral monsters are extremes. In most cases, Covenant doesn't have any true good or evil characters, only humans driven beyond the bounds of morality for the survival of their body or their sanity."
