Nothing could bring back the lives lost and undo the damage done to fin, not even a lifelong sentence. When Tom and Brendan visited Daniel he kept on repeating “I’m sorry, I fucked up everything” Daniel felt guilt for what he had done. Daniel was aggressive and he didn’t listen to anyone but he had feelings.

She may have felt guilty as she thought the norms would find out that she killed the man and then they would kill her. David and Petra are the ringleaders in the escape. “If we were to survive, we must keep our true self hidden…” When Petra was drowning, David and Rosalind heard her cries through their minds, which then made them fear more, as people were being suspicious as no-one else heard her. Then they had to fear Petra, as they realized her powers were much too strong for her and she was too young to fully understand it.

Najaf gives an example of the conflict existing in the camp, “The husband can’t make the authorities hurry… So he gets into a bad mood, and maybe there’s a fight, maybe somebody hits somebody else with a weapon, a piece of wood, something like that.” This attitude can also be reflected in the riots that broke out in the Villawood detention centre in 2011, where detainees performed acts of self harm and caused destruction and chaos amongst the whole camp. Those individuals were unable to come to terms with their current situation and overcome their hardship like Najaf had; instead they had let their weaknesses bring them down and prevented themselves from overcoming a problem in a constructive

He stopped thinking about the feelings and opinions of people that respect him and instead began selfishly thinking about only himself. Without any morals to guide him he soon began to think of only the immediate problems. His lack of planning eventually leads to his frantic behavior and loss of self-control.
