24.3 \ 206

Moonshadow had invented some formulae, from the translocation that was achieved when directed by Soleil in contact with the Viridian Phasing lattice. Using these formulae, it recalibrated the necessary energy activations to perform the translocation independently of the Viridian Phasing. Human initiation and kinetic response were still required. Moonshadow communicated extensively with Drift X before it left with Uixtr, and together they demonstrated the capability when parties left Ombd.

As she stretched and limbered up, Soleil thought about serving in new capacities. She was already Princess Ascendant after succeeding her mother. Her father, Grant Vario, would now be King Proxem. King Vario, in common parlance. Soleil was still five years from the ruling age of thirty, and the Proxem should reign until then.

In the royal hierarchy, she would return to what had been her mother’s role: hands-on organizer, addresser of concerns, synchronizer of intentions. Without her, all of that would be handled by greater staff. There would be some additional burden on her father as he upheld the duty to determine vision, direction, and priority.

From her current unique standpoint, Soleil was able to work on mitigating the situation that the people of the Imperium would receive. She could create rare options for mediation by gaining a decent grasp of the faction. This, so long as they were offering her access, whatever they intended for it to mean.

People had been making ready while she did; she maintained the focus of her awareness on the interface. Lines of light described the action zone that Drift X would read: a half-sphere at the end of a conical data-gathering projection area, similar to a stage spotlight that ended where she stood on the multi-use turret platform. Time for some shadowboxing, time to dance.
