Short Eyes, known as See, and the House Dick, known as Prick, are unofficial operatives of Special Operations. Prick is a burly ex-policeman with a cop's florid face and a cop's mean, angry eyes. They are rarely used against enemy agents, but rather against civilian targets: writers, artists, filmakers, intellectuals, inventors and researchers who are considered a danger to the Big Picture.
Big Picture involves escape from the planet by a chosen few… After that, an extermination program will be activated. needless to say, Big Picture is a highly sensitive project. Even to suspect the existence of Big Picture is unwholesome. As the poet says: 'After such knowledge, what forgiveness?"
