At a certain point the Gamma grows hysterical, enters a rage phase, and will have murder fantasies like the above. In reality chubby Beck would do nothing of the sort but in his head he’s slaying the dragon while wearing his shiniest suit of armor.
Soon after the rage phase comes the down cycle and the Gamma will withdraw and console himself with lies about how he’s the better man, more honorable, has higher standards, and is the true victor by remaining true to his convictions. Never mind the fact that he’s lost whatever battle he was fighting and has retreated, in the Gamma’s head he is victorious.
If anyone cares to listen he’ll describe himself as the bravest of knights who would enter the dragon’s den and pierce the side of the dragon with his lance knowing it would lead to his own death. The martyrdom in his head is the last stop of the delusion.
….but most Gammas would suddenly disappear from wherever they acted so stupidly.
