The motto we decided to use was, "Only the man who has known freedom can define his
prison." We really felt that this quote had a much deeper meaning we can all relate to and
sums up many of the characters' lives. It is true, that even despite our efforts; we can never
really understand someone else's hardships unless we experience them ourselves. A person,
who has grown up living in oppression and poverty, would not be able to know how bad his
living conditions are because he doesn’t know of a better life. The inmates and the outsiders
are all imprisoned but in different ways. Each group thinks that the other's life is easier, but
that is far from the truth. We all have to deal ...view middle of the document...

He had
mentioned on page 306 that his oath brother Keiro could barely read his own name. Finn is
also able to strategically solve and avoid problems. One example of this was when he had
stopped his oath brother from killing Jormanic. Although Jormanic was a terrible person, his
death would inevitably cause havoc among the inmates living in the area. The key itself is of
great importance because it was the only method of communication between Claudia and
Finn.
The key had also saved Finn and his companions multiple times and gave them hope. Finn
showed excellent guardianship over the key and his friends. Many people tried to steal the
key from him but he had always kept it safe. Finn also cared deeply about his friends. On
page 271, when they were all escaping from the prison (in the form of a beast), Keiro
slipped, but he went back for him.
We also used two fleur-de-ills because they symbolize purity. Finn isn't like the rest of
the prisoners or even his own oath brother keiro. He doesn't like to steal and has never
killed someone, like the rest of the Comitatus. He remains innocent in a sense because
despite all the hatred, injustice, and cruelty around him, he still holds on to his strong, good
morals. On page 261, the prison mentions how the Maestra's death still tears at Finn's
heart. The prison also says that conscience and shame are so rare. Finn also tends to see the
good in people rather than the bad, and never makes any rude assumption about people
unless he has a reason to. One example of this was on page 284, when Attia attempted to
tell Finn that Keiro hadn't even intended on helping him escape from the beast (Prison), if it
wasn't for Claudia's threat. Finn refused to believe so because his oath brother had always
been there for him.
He is also very passionate, which is why we used the flaming heart. He is utterly
determined to escape and was more than willing to do whatever it takes. On page 287,
Blaize, a sapient they met along their journey had told them there was no such thing as an
outside world and that it was impossible for anyone to go in or out of the prison, for
centuries. Finn replied very calmly, stating that he doesn't know for sure he came from the
outside, but he believes so. In one of his visions,...
