Guilt is a hell of a thing. Chad knew from personal experience that, sometimes, a man can claw his way back from the edge of sanity. It depends on the person. Sometimes a man dives headlong into the insanity that giving up their moral code entails. It depends on the person. That’s why these things always hit Chad so hard. He’s committed unconscionable crimes, even as early as last week, and he was still a trusted and somewhat influential member of society. So what is the difference between Chad and the unconscious man seated against the wall behind the pulpit? What is the difference between Chad and the ‘Fountain’ beneath the Church? What dooms these beings to death while Chad is allowed to roam free? Chad never really thought too much about semantics because he knew that Kindred needed harsh laws. Because harsh punishment was the only thing keeping most of these sick bastards from tearing down the world.
