In which Ochin has been thinking.
I am curious about whom Cheladin intends to quote Ochin’s assessment to. I can’t think of any regulatory body that would be able to claim and enforce jurisdiction if he’s right about what’s going on.
I had not seriously considered the possibility that the Liadens might simply be Liadens. We’ve had a few individuals or small groups having a go at Korval, but nothing on this scale before.
I notice that while Ochin is very definite on the point that High Command would only take on Korval as a way of going out in a blaze of glory, he doesn’t seem entirely confident that that’s not what High Command will choose to do.
(Furthermore, if they don’t, why is the title of this story what it is?)
(Perhaps instead it’s the mastermind behind Perdition Enterprises who is going out in a blaze of glory.)
