Such as superior speed to get out of harm's way...

That is why the Feds can only win with numbers, since individual performance is
not maximized.

I thought Scirocco was the one who overloaded Camille's psyche. Camille strikes
me as a character who wanted first-and-foremost to end the war, and therefore I

beach scene at the end of ZZ indicates that his troubles are over and hence he
could resume his normal, more care-free self.
