|Noah informs the candidates that her captivity at the hands of humans was worse than at the hands of the aliens. Why was this so, and how does the answer contribute to the overall message of the story, that change equals survival?||How does having been captive to both cultures give Noah power over both?||Is Noah a traitor? A collaborator? A hero? A survivor? Something else I cannot think of right now?|

|Noah tells the candidates about how the humans treated her worse than the aliens because they knew how much pain they were inflicting on her and she didn't understand their lack of compassion.||She understands both cultures and she knows how to communicate with both sides.||Noah is a survivor because she was able to overcome both abductions and all of the torture and suffering that she endured from both the aliens and humans. She's also a collaborator because she's working with both aliens and humans so that they can communicate and work with each other.|

|Human captors found Noah as a means to extract information about the Communities. They thought of her as a traitor. They thought she was always lying since she claimed she didn't know anything. Humans wanted to know about the technology the alien race had in possession. They figured they could use Noah to find a weak spot in the Communities in order to attack them. It was thought all those who came in contact with these aliens were spies and/or brainwashed. Self destructive nature. Noah wanted to commit suicide when captured by humans. They knew what they were doing to her. The Communities were naive and had no means of communication to know whether they were hurting her or not. The humans create that primitive instinct to destroy.||She has an idea of how both sides work. Government lies to the people. She knows how corrupt they are, gives her power to change how humans feel, how they view their lives, whether or not they are being held prisoner in their own society. Power over the aliens, she can convince people. Neutral entity. If the Communities try to destroy humans, they can end up destroying themselves. She wanted to learn more about them, allows herself to be encased. Puts herself in harms way, fighting for collaboration. Bridging the gap. Perhaps offer different way to deal with issues. The fact that she's willing to do it, leads the way so that other humans aren't fearful of being in contact with the Communities. Opposite of ISIS. Noah sacrifices her own life to become the mediator between both species.||Noah feels the aliens are here to stay and plans to deal with it. Survival instincts kick in and she take jobs in order to put food on the table. She's dealing with a situation that humans don't have control of in the most positive way possible which in turn makes her a collaborator. Ultimately, her goal is to create an atmosphere of union and agreement, in a way both parties benefit off each other in one way or another.|

|10/13/2016 20:37:15||wikiuser103||When Noah was captured by the humans after let go by the Communities, they tortured her for answers. What made this torture worse was the fact that her new captors knew that they were hurting her and yet it didn't stop them from doing so. This shows that the torture that Noah endured made her become a survivor.||Because Noah was captured by both cultures, she has the ability to see things from different perspectives from both sides. She was also able to adapt to the torture, and this helped her survive.||Noah is human in its best form. She chooses to make the best out of a situation that no human or Community can change. She wants to keep peace between two cultures that have both tortured her in order to keep a sense of calm and neutrality amongst them. She is super humane in the sense that she lets go of the anger and hatred (that she should be allowed to have due to how much she was out through) to help others who have done nothing but put her through a living hell.|

She was wrongfully detained by her humans who feared she was a traitor, while her captives treated her better as a subject.
|She gains insite and experiences that help her.|
Noah is an adjuster, making the best of her situation.
