Rocket is by far the best Engine I have ever seen for Blood and Bone united'. He comments on Hackworth's behaviour: 'out of temper ever since he came ... nothing our men did for him was right ... he openly accused all G Ss people of conspiring to hinder him', as well as on the performance of his Engine, adding that 'he must ... own that he has been taught a lesson in humility'.
