18: Elizabeth has some pride in talking herself out of a situation, only to second guess herself later. She is proud of her kids, but she doesn’t talk about them much, because that might mean admitting the possibility that they were casualties of the Third wave pandemic or the riots.
19: Elizabeth is older, so she mellowed out some, but her #1 deadly sin is wrath. It still crops up once in a while, but thanks to her self-defense training, she’s learned to have some control.
20: Not a character quote per se, but a scene…
“It’s not a big deal…” I paused, realizing the habitual phrase was far from the truth. “Actually, it is a big deal. I mean, two weeks ago, I was just Elizabeth Weinstein; Sub-par author, conspiracy theorist, defunct YouTuber, crunching numbers so that I can expand my properties, and arguing logistics with my rivals. Yet…” My voice trailed off, and I waited until my mind could catch up. “All of that… Everything I thought was important pales in comparison to what I have to do.” My eyes met Roger’s, and I shook my head. “Something important, and I have no clue what it is yet!” I tossed my bag into the trunk of the car and slammed the hood shut, only to realize that too late, my phone was still in my pack.
“You won’t need it.” Josias circled around me, grabbed my shoulders, and glanced around before looking in into my eyes. “You’re right. You do have something important to do.”
– from: Elizabeth: Kidnapped
21: Elizabeth does like to be alone and until she meets the others, she actively avoids people unless it’s business.
22: Elizabeth thought it was talking herself out of trouble, but then she met the others – and found out she can look into the beyond and see a few seconds of the timeline.
23: She can make friends easily. It’s keeping them through initiating contact that’s hard.
