Selfless Jeff

Abnesti tries to dehumanize Rachel in order to prompt Jeff to administer the Darkenfloxx to her. However, Jeff resists up to the point where Abnesti decides to call in Docilryde that will not give him a choice in administering the Darkenfloxx, but instead make him obey. When it is apparent to him that the Darkenfloxx will be administered whether he likes it or not, he takes his own life rather than take another’s. After he does so he says, “I was happy, so happy, because for the first time in years, and forevermore, I had not killed, and never would,”(81). I believe this to be the ultimate act of selflessness and sacrifice, since he did not deem his life any more important than another’s.
