If you act a wrong or way or make a wrong decision, it doesn't define you nor your future.
This theme relates to to many characters in the story. One character that relates this theme isPet er. This relates to Peter because even though he left his beloved pet fox in the woods, it didn't define him as a horrible person, because he still went back for Pax. This theme also relates to Vola because, even though she killed someone in war, doesn't been she does that to people where ever she goes. This theme also relates to Bristle. It relates to her because even though she despises Pax, and treated him unfairly, it doesn't mean that Bristle hates everyone, and doesn't trust anyone except her brother, but towards the end of the book, she trusts all of the animals in the wild, including Pax.
A quote that supports this theme is, "You going for your home or for your pet.", "There the same thing." This develops the theme because even though Peter left his pet he is going to go back for it instead of ignoring his pet.
