Imperial officers. Don't ever write them seriously. Don't ever get attached. Plus I just finished up BH Balmorra this evening with the bonus of being an alien. Boy, do those people have respect, class, and humanity...oh wait they don't.
I had hesitated to timeskip on Vierce, but I guess I already jumped ahead to show major events. So this is an instance of Worlds Colliding
on or near Balmorra. 700ish words, no game spoilers.
