Recognizing the usefulness of this power, Ashley ordered that the canary and Luddly be locked in their laboratory so they did not come to harm during the terrorist assault. Later, after gaining possession of Dr. James Zanasiu, she took him to the room in the hopes that the canary would show her how he traversed universes.
While it was held, the canary bit Ashley's finger, causing her to smack it against the wall. In its death throes, the canary scanned every person in the room, sending each person's most emotional moment to somebody else (except Burly, who merely saw his own).
|Individual present||Whose memory they saw||Who saw their memory||Most emotional memory|
|Ashley||Unknown||James||Being forced by Halsey to stab herself with a needle|
|Leither||James||Ender||Ender suggested it involved a girl|
|Burly||Burly||Burly||the events that occurred in this room|
|Luddly||Unknown||Ken||Being awarded his PhD|
While Leither refused on his deathbed to tell James what he saw, it's implied it was enough for him to realize that James was not from an alternate universe.
