There is no such thing as Heaven or Hell, not when you’ve seen what I’ve seen.

I’m a savager you see. Yes, yes, a lonely job. My father told me that solitude brings Allah closer. I used to believe that. I don’t think I ever will now.

I guess being Muslim does conflict with what I said about Heaven and Hell, doesn’t it. But Heaven and Hell is a matter of perspective, you’d say. I know it sounds weird, but I saw something – it threw my thoughts about what is possible all over the place. I don’t even know what I believe in anymore.

I’ve seen all kinds of things surrounding planetoids, post-pirate battles and colonial wars. And yes, that includes frozen corpses, or parts of corpses. I’m so used to the sight of machinery and variable metals that these bodies become part of what I salvage. I’ve taken them manually before, thinking how much this metal is worth on the market, and then I have to take them out again, but carefully, so they don’t shatter in the airlock. Using Crab Claw (which is the auto way) they shred into a million pieces. I say a little prayer for them when I make mistakes like that.
