Legend Revenge

Advertisement - Guide continues below


After June hears of her brother's death in Legend, she is immediately hell-bent on revenge. After all, Metias was her last living relative and she loved him dearly. Because she's convinced that Day has killed him, she wants to track him down and bring him to justice. When she realizes that she's been mistaken though, her revenge plan has to find a new target—the Republic of America. Even though June's been a die-hard patriot from the privileged class, she recognizes that the Republic has been lying to her and killing off her family all along.

And Day recognizes the same thing, thereby uniting them both in their shared need for justice, rather than revenge. Instead of seeking to kill those who hurt their families (most notably Thomas), June and Day leave the revenge notion behind and decide to take on the Republic—and fight for everyone's justice and freedom instead.

Questions About Revenge

  1. How does the Republic betray both Day's and June's families? Why do they want to seek revenge?
  2. Does June want to seek revenge on Thomas for killing her brother? Why or why not?
  3. How does June's original revenge plan change when she starts getting to know Day?
  4. Is revenge still important to June by the end? Why or why not?

Chew on This

Even though June initially thinks that getting revenge for Metias's death will make her feel better and give her a sense of closure, in the end it just makes her feel worse about everything.

Day doesn't take out his anguish about his mother's death on June because he knows that revenge wouldn't help anything and that she has suffered enough already.
