There is just something that I find incredibly alluring about characters like Zane: people who are all fire and passion.

 

You get the feeling that they won't last long, that they'll burn out quickly. But they shine so bright that you find yourself not caring.

 

Besides, I've always had a tender spot in my heart for cripples, bastards and broken things.
