Of Angels and Snakes

I’ve been living in null sec space ever since we left Palermo, and I think I’ve only just become fully acclimatized to it. Combat is my duty. The paranoia and frequent looking over my shoulder has kept me safe. I was never entirely nervous. But I feel now - I actually feel - that this is where I want to be.

Venal was the rough and tumble, and it’s every man for himself up there. No one there has much purpose to their lives other than making it through. I met plenty of officers claiming they were all for making the State better, but the look in their eyes said otherwise. The real reason they were attracted to the North and the Guristas was money.

I’ve never been like that. I wanted to institute some real change, but was never sure how to go about it. I suppose I’ve come to realize that trying to fix the corruption that plagues the State is a hopeless cause. We rocked Ishukone and hardly made the right impression. All the Brothers of Freedom are now missing or dead. I just can’t see the State changing, and I can’t see myself caring anymore. Not the way things have progressed.

There’s something else though… Fountain is different. The people down here have a purpose beyond acquiring money. The Serpentis Corporation, and indeed my friends at Coreli as well as my cousin Sayuri, sees booster development as the way forward. They genuinely believe that they’re working to advance humanity… it’s an idea that intrigues me in all honesty, especially being a Pill addict and knowing just what it can do.

What’s more, I found something that Zaitsev might be interested in after roaming the Angel stations for a little while. It’s just a rumor, but he likes those. I’ll have to send him the message tonight.
