I’ve always been super protective of like my friends and like my family, just people I love in general. When I was younger and more impulsive and less of a fully developed human - I’m very impulsive. Me and Ki Hong talked a lot about this. I was very impulsive and would react physically to situations. But I remember this time when I was eight years old, and my sister was getting bullied like right in front of me. And I just attacked this kid. Not attacked him, but I chased him around the playground and tackled him. And we had a fight. And I was crying you know because he was just beating up on my sister basically. That’s something in me that I have always sort of related just to that scene. That’s sort of just how I thought about it. We’re all standing there, and the rules say that we can’t go in after dark. But Alby and Chuck for Thomas were really like the only two people in his life really at this point. And he feels no other way than to go in and save one of his friends. There’s just no other instinct.
