Symbolism

Charles Walker: Charles Walker is a symbol of the DHS as an entity: he is violent in addition to being an informant, and spits out exactly what the DHS want to hear in Social Studies class. Towards the end of the book he tries to send a picture of Marcus to the DHS but Masha stops him.

Xbox Universal: Marcus’s Xbox represents hope as well as connection- with his Xbox, Marcus can transform from a regular teen with little influence to M1K3Y, and have an army a thousand strong ready to do whatever it takes to win the city back.

DHS: Represents tyranny and oppression as well as invasion; this is portrayed through their ever watchfulness, torture methods and their use of Patriot Act II.
