The Red Crown

The Red Crown

Narrative

Your assassin is dead, Tara and I are safe...

Did you really think that I came here out of naivety, that I had gone mad, or thought you would offer me clemency?

I came here to destroy you...

You thought you'd found the ideal tool to further your ends. A young captain with her own ship, prepared to run blockades and carry cargoes, so ignorant of your plans.

I came to you, fools. I came to you because your objectives were mine...

The Blueprint is in my hands and Cyana Bristo is safe, there will be no trade, no bargaining, and no compromises.

You believe that you know the ancient terror that hides on Hycaron II, that you can control it. You believe that this makes you powerful...

You also believed that lack of action by the Lazloi was weakness, you believed you could act against us with impunity. This was your most fatal mistake...

By now you will have scanned my ship and realised that it is not what it seems, you now know that it contains much that you do not understand. My dealings with the Lazloi has gained me many gifts, one that I give to you now...

- Final communique to the island enclave of the Brotherhood, minutes before its annihilation.
