(The eigth Hexra divide the empire among themselves and are kept in check by their de facto leader, Notob the Death Claw, who initially recruited them. One reson they haven't beaten the coalition yet is that they frequently are out to sabotoge each other and refuse to cooperate half the time)


Don'cha' just love Feudalism?

I also love cross-purposes! When one Hexra tries to do one thing another will do the exact opposite. Same for Jonas and Skye's bodyguards.

Yeah, sorta actually. Except as the story progresses, the body guards (later dubbed The Isacar) learn to cooperate to an extant while the Hexra become more and more divided resulting in one death and one defection.

Ummm... you do know what defecation means, right? Perhaps you meant to use another word? Decapitation, perhaps?

Nope, I did mean defection. But one Hexra does get his head chopped off, go figure.

Anyways, one Hexra who was never the biggest patriot finally gets too disgusted with the Empire and tries to leave. He is nowhere closer to his goal then when he first joined Unity so he doesn't owe them much anyways. And when Jonas and the surviving Isacar obtain what he want and realizes that the other Hexra were decieving him, he waste no time switching sides.

Then are you using it as a tropes, as opposed to literally? It doesn't seem to make much contextual sense if it's the latter.

A "tropes" is a word used in a non-literal way. For instance, are you using defecation to refer to their befowlment of soul/character (or even for the purging of the same, because I could see both as acceptable uses of it). Or do you mean the word literally, as it somebody going into a bathroom (or whereever) and pinching a loaf?

Sorry, dude. I think you misread my post. The word I used was Defection, not Defecation. No "a". Defection - as in, he defected, changed sides, went over, betrayed the other team, ect. Easy mistake, just clearing that up. And the item in question was his daughter.
