Not that it matters in the slightest.
The man is continually crushed, so that the Wraith is the only escape.
The man cannot do anything right, or at least it seems that way. The man must live in community, and the only escape is the Wraith.
The Wraith does not crave community. The Wraith craves solitude. Solitude means peace. Community means war, but a war in which the man is forbidden to defend himself.
The Wraith seeks solitude and even when he is the man, the man seeks solitude.
If only humans were not contentious. If only the humans didn’t seek to destroy.
Humans in general are destructive, but the ones you live with are the most destructive of all.
Humans in general can destroy your body, but the ones you live with destroy your soul.
