ok sorry I just had to get this off my chest but

Carswell Thorne did not have a sob story (or at least, not one nearly as bad as the rest of the characters)

Of course, yes, his parents weren’t the best - they were neglectful of his wants and didn’t treat him and his choices with respect - but damn, at least he had them. At least he had full meals every day and a roof over his head. At least he wasn’t manipulated or discriminated against in society. Obviously he didn’t have a perfect life, but his was so much better than the others’ ok

I love carswell thorne as much as the next guy, but stop trying to make it seem like your white male Earthen non-cyborg(mostly) fave had struggled so much in his life !!
