Chris's clothes, his weapons, his food, the bed he sleeps in--they all belong to the kingdom. (They're no longer standard issue, now that he's a Weihrauch, but that doesn't make them his.) His life, too, is property of Linevan. He goes where he's told, does what he's ordered, and he can't shake the weight of his own replaceability, the certainty that if he were to leave the world, it would have the same impact as a bather leaving the ocean.

Ironically, his death is the one thing he has left, and he's decided to give that to Forsyth. He doesn't know when, where, or why, but he does know that he'll sell his life dear.

And that will be the greatest irony of all.
