Ismene is too afraid of the consequences and thinks that we are just weak women. Ismene believes that I am on a "hopeless quest", and feels that I am irrational. If only she could see this from my prospective, i have one brother who has been disgraced by Creon and one who has been graced. Ismene is afraid for me but refuses to help me.

"I will suffer nothing as great as death without glory."
