A+ political analysis from Frigg today, no notes.

I appreciate that Penk is aware of the possibility of even some rando troll or other Rebel picking a fight with the Peacemakers in his absence and has a very practical plan to prevent that from happening. Proving yourself a worthy leader isn’t always about the big trials, by combat or otherwise. It’s the hundreds of small decisions that really prove=s a leader’s mettle true.

This little flex on Gravedust’s part might be necessary to build up his arc in this chapter, where (spoiler) he goes from powerless outcast to commander-in-chief.
