the seeker was the alien version of the humans. destroy first, ask questions later. her and ians brother *i forget due to the late hour* are two peas in a pod.
maybe ive written too many papers, but i would say that she is an example of why any sort of reform where everyone is expected to live in harmony falls apart. the act of free will. sounds good until you factor in greed, hate, anger, fear, love, any chemical reaction, ect. and she is why wanda breaks free. if it wasnt for the seeker, she probably wouldnt have been pushed to the limits that she was, and therefore wouldnt have forged a common enemy with her host.
the enemy of my enemy is my friend and all that jazz
and it was the seekers "first life". shes a kid. im sure this is a bad example, but once, while babysitting, an eight year old girl proceeded to tell me why anyone who wasnt white was bad. it broke my heart and i had a virbal confrontation with her parents.... but it shows that we only execute what we know. we only know what we are taught. she saw a fellow life form loose themselves within a host body, and became extremely fearful.
