I actually feel that your first theorem may be closer to Brian's rationalization. And I do think that it has affected him much as some of the Vietnam vets I know. It may not be a deep psychosis, but perhaps something like PTSD. A lot of the guys I knew came back feeling they gave their country the best even having killed often because they faraught an enemy of their country. But soon after the war, a lot of things were said that maybe the war wasn't such a good idea. It conflicted and undermined the vets values and morals enough to really screw some guys up. Afghanistan and Iraq kinda have the same feel. What I'm trying to say is that the third option, an average day at the office.. Well ...Brian suffered too much in his conscience for that to apply. .

Perhaps, it would also help to know for sure that every time he went, he saved someone from dying and that the ones he killed were murderers. That makes a big difference.

The at is not exactly true however, his power steered a specific time line, his primary goal wasn't to save lives per say that was just a side effect of his power. He may have saved lives, it wasn't always a murderer doing the killing some times it was just an out of control situation, he had to make life and death snap decisions all time.

No one can save everyone. True, they were people his power decided needed to be saved for a better future. That doesn't negate the fact he was stopping killers. In the second case he didn't kill anyone, he just ran, or escaped, he didn't kill every time, only when his power said it was necessary.

I believe the primary objective of his power was to prevent the person he replaced from being killed or attacked. If it took death, his own or the attackers, so be it. He only had one failure that I recall, well, two if you count the girl that was carrying the one infection that he was unable to save. So he got WAY good at fighting. And killing. ,

Okay, this is way off topic, but I'd like to remind Mr. Power that in the first book, when Brian is on his survival training he "misplaced" a day or two... that is an undeveloped plot point that still bugs me! Are you holding that off for something important or... what? Or should I just let it go.. (Yeah, like I can actually do that)
