15/4- The best word that can be used to describe the atmosphere around Triumvirate High Society this morning is ‘confusion’. Just a day after finding out that several high ranking members of the community had been killed in the tragic Heisenberg crash, including the Empress of NorEaster, we now learn that all but one of the high profile passengers were not on the plane at all.
Empress Bastian…alive. Playwright Delando…alive. Tobacco magnate Archibald Starkfeld…alive. This list goes on, of people not only rich enough to afford tickets on the maiden flight, but rich enough to hire others to go in their place and convince the world that they had been a part of this history making event.
So, yes, confusion is the word to describe it. On the one hand, the leader of one of our three Empires still lives, likely averting a power vacuum and a ton of finger pointing and accusations between NorEaster and Crowndon. On the other hand the Empress, as well as others, filled the plane with servants and body doubles groomed to convince the world of their presence on the plane, and in so doing take all the glory without any of the risk. Publicity photos released after the event of passengers boarding were staged (all photography was contracted out). Yes, one hundred and twenty people are dead. However, we can say that of that number, the only person of any importance to die was Pipi Tralala, a dubious claim at best.
