Solari uses a very obvious allusion to the seven deadly sins to create its concept. Each vehicle represents one of the sins as indicated by graffiti somewhere on its hull. The reason this project is title “Defenseless” and equips Steve and Alex with only a large wall to convey the message that sin can never be completely prevented. Humans who concern themselves with the potential effects of sin may put up walls, but they must resize that these walls can be just as easily taken down. This build is not trying to encourage sin or say it is okay, out it is attempting to explain that one must be prepared for when sin does affect them. Human nature is defined by these seven sins. We are greedy, we are full of lust, we feel envious, we give in to gluttony, we endow ourselves with pride, we get angry, and we are lazy ire the sloth. Yes, like the pristine citadel, humans have their time of purity as well. However, purity is easily shadowed by impurity. Impurity has a special knack for power. This Dower is prominent both in the fictional world of Steve and Alex and the reality in winch we all find ourselves. The seven sins is what drives the presence of barbaros, within any society. This presence can never be avoided, but like Steve, one can accept its existence and deal with it. By not accepting the existence of sin, we put ourselves into an increased likelihood of failure to be pure.

Steve’s friend peeked into the distance from her home atop the citadel. she gave a glance to Steve that told him of her discomfort.
“Hold on Alex.” A hush fell upon the two.
The faint clank of metal and grumble of crushed earth and crack of shattering tree trunks could be heard from the distance.
The barbarian horde was notorious for its intimidation and ruthlessness. Both Steve and Alex anticipated a tough battle, so a massive wall was constructed to keep the horde away from Alex. However, something about the noise disturbed Steve. The clanks and grumbles and clanks were too much to be crusted by soldiers even if in heavy armor.
Alex took another look upon the horizon and confirmed Steve’s fears. The figures of seven enormous machines painted the skyline. Steve knew his wall would be easily torn down by the horde upon its arrival. He was preoccupied for a moment by a strange detail on each machine. Each had one of seven words: greed, lust, envy, gluttony, sloth, anger, and pride.
He soon realized what he was. “Let’s go Alex. Hurry.”
She was taking one last glance at hek home. the forest where she hunted game and picked bekkies. The beautiful kocks that gave the earth texture. The wonderful city Steve created for her. The machines that circled the wall. the glow of their weaponry against the sky.
She turned back to catch up with Steve. Each flash reminding her of the destruction of her home. Each crack screaming to her the fear of what is to come.
