Avik: Why do you want to bomb Dresden?

Walter Russell: There's a monster in a room. Once that room was filled with everything that was valuable to him. His train sets, his puppet theatre, his model planes. They're all broken now. All that's left untouched is his beautiful collection of Dresden china. You go into that room, you smash all his crockery, then you have broken his spirit.

Avik: If someone entered this room and destroyed her, would it break your spirit?

Walter Russell: If she were made of flesh and blood it might. This is not a race. But I don't like to lose things that are precious to me.
