Book #1 Chapter 15 Spot Art
Paul25 from Sophista, whose age is frozen at 9 years old, is walking across a 15th century battle field and has just watched a peasant boy a die. He is upset because the boy should have never been in the battle and he was not allowed to heal the boy because Sophista didn't want to interfere with human evolution. The scene in the book is short because it is a flash back, but it is important because it is designed to make the fact that Paul25 has been alive for over 1000 years really tangible rather than a comic book fact. The idea is to make vivid in a reader's mind the huge number of horrible things in Earth's past that Paul25 has seen.
