Rem had seen a candle as the best analogy of Plant energy use. "Look at this candle. Though it seems fragile, it could last forever. There's only two ways it can be destroyed, and that is to entirely break it or to light it. If you burn it too often or too long, it will burn up, but you can choose not to burn."
Vash remembered that any time he saw candles. Whether festive or ordinary, they were a stark reminder. The worst were those in reflective glass holders, because he could see his half-blackened hair as the candle burned.
