Equality 7-2521 was born with a curse for he is 6 feet tall and treated like he was nothing. When he finished school, he was assigned as a street sweeper along with his brothers.
Would you like some water?
This was where Equality first met Liberty 5-3000. They met in a cornfield while she was working and Equality fell in love with her. "Their body was straight and thin like a blade of iron. Their eyes were dark and hard and glowing, with no fear in them, no kindness and no guilt.Their hair was golden as the sun; their hair flew in the wind, shining and wild as if it defied men to restrain it."(Rand39)
Equality found a subway underground and believes it was made from the Unmentionable times. This place was where Equality discovered electricity and wanted to keep it a secret for right now.
Liberty and Equality both gave each other new names at the cornfield. Liberty is the Golden One and Equality was given the name Unconquered. Liberty then offered Equality some water and he kissed the Golden One's hand.
Equality was thinking in his tunnel about how the scholars of the council would appreciate him after he showed them his light and he would then be excepted to the council of scholars. "We shall go to this Council and we shall lay before them, as our gift, the glass box with the power of the sky. We shall confess everything to them." (Rand 61).
After Equality was caught late to the theater he was put in Corrective detention where he was lashed until he talked, but didn't so he was put in jail. But now he is determined to break out and show his creation to the scholars.
