He thought there was a chance that it wasn’t too late. That everyone he’d killed really had been a dangerous Null. That he really was a hero, working in the shadows to make the world a better place for people who’d never even looked his way.

Knew the little prince’s story as well as her own.

She closed her eyes. She leaned her head forward against the book. And she sobbed.”
Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Nobody
