How does robinson evaluate these characters, does he judge them, if he doesn't do the other characters do this
-Robinson doesn't evaluate them, however they do evaluate each other. For example Kieran sees Swan as a beauty and to be kind. And Wahram sees her as an amusing friend but also a talkative one as he said "Well, I... Perhaps shouldn't really say now." when Swan asked about Alex's plans before death.
