The novel of Joëlle Wintrebert talks about a society where cloning is used to build champions. The father of the modern cloning, Bior Malard, is struck by a drama: the death of his woman. But he takes cells and clones her. A child born: Maël. She is a baby, and Bior brings up her. A question appears: who is Maël? His wife? His daughter? This paper deals with some issues like identity, ownership of the body and abilities of the body in a complicated and entangled paradox of the Rme. If a character comes from the past, or if a part of their own body comes from the past, can he build the future, or even be a part of it?
