The Prisoner's Dilemma Document

A Good Man is one of the Documents from Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch (additional content for Rise of the Tomb Raider). It belongs to the The Prisoner's Dilemma set, narrating Serafima's transition from scholar to haunting witch.

Serafima's fate was bound up with Ivan's from the moment they met...

Ivan... I thought it would be simple. Most of these rough, stinking thugs take what they want from the prisoners. I chose Ivan because I thought he would bend. But it is worse than I thought. He is a good man.

He does not want to be here anymore than I. That sentiment holds little weight when he eats well and sleeps with a blanket, but I credit him with a moral compass these others lack. This place sickens him. He knows his part in it, hates what he does. I caught him pushing back, when he thought no one was watching, to calm his guilt. I told him it was not enough. Showed him how to do more. We worked well together. Planned our escape.

But it is too late. I am pregnant. We are damned.
