Emerald Flame is, like a lot of my more personal characters, part of my psyche. He's the misanthropic "all humans are terrible" voice, although he's learned, thanks to Scylla, that humans don't deserve harm, really. Just a change in perspective that might generate some empathy.

I don't know what part of me Scylla is. She might be the same impulse turned toward a more creative end. The idea that the world (and humanity) can and should be better than it is. Even if we're monsters, we can be good.
