"Terrors they are, these lads of the Lyc-e Condorcet, and no mistake - the terrors of the Fifth-where the tenebrous instincts of childhood still predominate-" At home, Paul shares a private world with his sister Elisabeth, a world from which parents are tacitly excluded.

Elisabeth might be the dutiful daughter tending their sick, prematurely aged mother; Paul might be under the spell of his fellow student Dargelos, and then of a hapless friend of his sister's - but unfortunately what the rules of the Game prescribe is that two children must die- (2002-10-18)
