Do you ever wonder what drives a person to undertake such an impossible and difficult mission? Based on Cinder’s, Scarlet's, and Ahmedi's experiences in their books and short stories, Cinder and Scarlet from their story, Scarlet, and Farah Ahmedi from her story “The Other Side of the Sky”, they all went through very dark and arduous times. Cinder seeked to overcome her fears and stand up for what is right rather than absconding from them. Scarlet and Ahmedi desired to have better lives.

For example, shortly after Scarlet had eventually missing found her grandmother, by being kidnapped by the same vicious people that were under the control of the wicked Queen Levana back in Cinder’s story, she knew at once she had been too late: “Their gazes met and she could see, in an instant, that her grandmother would not be moving again” (Meyer 380-381). This relates to before in the book when Scarlet was resolute to find and take her grandmother back home like before and have a normal and carefree life once again, but sometimes, even when you have everything planned out for a mission, it might not always be the outcome you desire. Since Scarlet was still traumatized by the fact that she had just watched her beloved grandmother die right in front of her eyes when she had just met Cinder, she felt very upset that Cinder hasn’t done anything to stop Queen Levana and had let all those people die all because of her, especially her grandmother. For instance: “Why haven’t you done anything to stop her? People are relying on you. People think you can make a difference and what are you doing?
