Rodney is not anyone's definition of a brave man. He's scared of death, disease, dogs larger than toasters, and having to run anywhere fast. But he's not scared here.

In the world of flesh and bone and frailty, he is just the grown-up version of the last kid picked in gym class. In the world of the mind, however, he is a slayer of dragons.
