The "Monsters" Coda was part of a speech given by House Strategist Entarodora.

During her address to the Fifth Wave on the thirtieth anniversary of the War, she talked about the troops' fears. With xenoprediction, they feared their predictability and their unpredictability. She posited that the enemy's leadership was unknown by design of the Great Houses. If it was known, she said, the Homeworld would not be motivated to stop them. Only by making them Monsters would there be enough fear to fight them. (PROSE: The Book of the War)
