Example 1: Roan is very smart because it says in the book that he built a robot training fencing machine all by himself. And he used his machine to try to help him win the fencing tournament. So from this part it would seem that I could maybe learn fencing from the robot.
Example 2: In the story he turned on his best friend and joined the bullys or the dark side and started to get away from his best friend. And in the fencing tournament the bullys tried to help Roan win by blinding Roan's original best friend and so he checked on his original best friend and said "Take your time" and the original best friend responded "Thanks" so the original best friend won and Roan and him made up and roan left the bullys.
