006. Break Away006. Break Away, or, Welcome to the Town of Montressor
Jim Hawkins has never been the easiest of boys to control.
Well, that's the understatement of the century.
Jim Hawkins is an absolute nightmare of a boy. He's a loner, he's quiet, when you make him talk he's disrespectful, he's the kind of kid that is totally brilliant and completely demented. Keep your kids far away.

All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
