Character Role Analysis

Luke and Jen

Luke and Jen have tons in common. They're both shadow children and, um, they're both shadow children. Okay, so other than being illegal, they actually have nothing in common beside their shared goal of being free. However, when Luke decides to spend his life helping third children, he notes that it'll be with a completely different strategy than Jen. The two are as polar opposite as you could get. Luke realizes this immediately upon meeting Jen, although he phrases it as, "she's absolutely crazy" (17.74).
