Memo: Extrahumans follow-up
Posted February 29, 2012on:
Yesterday, I linked you to a short piece in which Ernesta Trägel, the head of ConFedMilPol (Confederation Military Police–the secret police in the Extrahumans world), drinks vodka and watches videos while avoiding work. See, the future’s not SO different from now.
Today, she finally got that report done in and issued a memo to the President of the Confederation. Here is the text of that memo, which concerns various extrahuman activities and the meddlesome Order of St. Val on Valen. Both the story and the memo take place right before the events of FLY INTO FIRE.
A quick note on Ernesta Trägel’s rank, which is listed on the memo as Corporal. Trägel, when she became head of ConFedMilPol, had no military experience and decided to take a token very low rank as a gesture of respect for the institution. However, she is currently the only corporal in ConFedMilPol, and very clearly commands those of much higher rank. It’s the sort of little misdirection the new Confederation does an awful lot of.
Trägel is a fascinating and fun character, I really want to use her more.
