A hero points their laser gun at a villain. The villain has big teary eyes and holds out a photo of a small child.
Hero: You will never again bomb an orphanage!
Villain: Wait – did you know that I was an innocent child once?
The hero takes the photo, and the villain holds up a book titled My Life as an Orphan.
Hero: Well, yes, everyone has been an innocent child…
Villain: But as you’ll read, my suffering as a tiny orphan made me bitter, putting me on the dark path to revenge against all orphanages.
The hero lowers their gun, tearing up.
Hero: That’s so tragic.
Hero: Alright, I’ll let you go if you promise you won’t bomb any more orphanages.
Villain: Could I do just one?
