First Son, Justice-Bringer

After hearing a Spanish short story in which a bandit robs and shoots a man with a wife and children, thus condemning the family to starvation that winter. The bandit dies in the end, but First Son was deeply affected by the story:

“I don’t like it that a man can kill a hundred men and then be hanged only once.”

Mercy is no small thing.
