  • You must make your child important.

    Only a parent can see a future for his children, only a parent can see how that future is important, even more so than the parent's job, even more so that the parent's life so once the Observer of one Christine Hollis becomes such a parent there's only one man he could ask for advice. Problem for "August" is that the other observers believe she's of no consequence and they will take meassures to correct August's interference with was supposed to be her death, there's nothing he can do and Walter is the only man he knows that could see beyond the limitation of these problems, his dilemma something only Walter could relate to because of what he did back when his own son died. The advice is as simple as Walter's "Please don't take my son" plea: if August can't persuade the observers of his convictions then he must do something to prove it, he must make her important. And so he does he dies to save her life; Christine Hollis is now responsible for the death of one of the observers. The most important person according to their standards, Ausgust's child is safe at last.
