Chapter One: Agitators
Revolutionaries and rebels were vital to the dramatic narrative the Continuum used to keep the Collective sated.
The Continuum sought to manage the revolutionaries, to control their fire, to target their outrage, to utilize their passion for justice for the sake of the narratives and threads of story that came from it.
The primary instruments of this programming were the Observers that were stationed on every world.
The Continuum knew them, it knew them intimately, it knew each and every one of them from its long exposure with their consciousness as members of the Collective, and through its deep contact with them when they returned to HomeWorld for their cyclical examination.
Each Observer was supposed to be assigned to a world of their own, and free to carry out their mission as they determined best. Upon entering the Observer Corps they were given these assurances, and such assurances were understood to have the force of law.
The Continuum did not honor these traditions and cultivated its own special agents from among the Observers, granting them greater powers and more license in order to execute its will through the Empire. Among the tasks these agents were given were the fomenting of revolution, and the crushing of rebellion.
Dangerous and agitating influences were rooted out, or intensified if it suited the desires of the Collective.
There was nothing sacred
