24/6-Wanted as a war criminal in Crowndon, and revered as a war hero in Nor Easter, many were curious what fate would befall Pixie Sinclaire when she arrived in the colonies. The answer, it seems, is rather ambiguous.
When Sinclaire arrived in New Crowndon last night, she was met at the docks by an envoy consisting of New Crowndon militia and the personal guard of Governor Berclay Ancroft. Witnesses report that after a brief exchange, Miss Sinclaire was detained and led to the Governor’s mansion. It is reported that she was cooperative, and she did not appear to be under arrest.
Her current status is unknown, but it shouldn’t be assumed that she’s found her way into a cell; even though New Crowndon is owned by Crowndon, it is governed by its own laws and is overseen by the Triumvirate as a whole. Only a small portion of the city’s government have strong ties to the parent nation, and none of them have ever expressed a particularly strong opinion concerning the Dividing War between Crowndon and Nor Easter three years ago.
One possibility is that the Governor has a job for Sinclaire; given her background in espionage, Sinclaire would be a valuable tool in any number of current situations, such as quietly defusing the dispute between the colonies and territories, or uncovering the secrets of political rivals in light of the upcoming Imperial audits.
