Into the Lion's Den (OOC/OPEN/MT)

Postby Sophistan » Mon Aug 12, 2019 9:07 am

This RPG is in Polis. The capital of the Epistocratic Confederation of Sophistan. This nation is a philosopher's rule and therefore authoritarian and totalitarian. The highest authority is the Council of Scholars, which has absolute political power. The society is divided into three classes:
1) The infantry
2) The guards
3) The epistocrats

Despite this fact, Sophistan is open to tourism as it is also a South Seas paradise. The land is located on a small island in the South Pacific and the only access is the port of Polis. Tourists, of course, are required to comply with applicable laws and regulations. This RPG is an open, fairly free game, which has some story lines, but otherwise is freely accessible. It refers only to the area of the capital Polis.



Look of Polis
Image

Beach of Polis: There are beautiful, white sandy beaches on the equally beautiful deep blue sea. Most of the beaches are located just outside the city and are therefore surrounded by lush forests.

Image

Downtown: In the inner city on Polis they find the habitat of the lowest caste. It is decorated in beautiful, Greek style.

Image

Upper Class: Here live our intellectual rulers. It is rich in cultural offerings such as theaters, museums and concert halls.



Hotels

Image

Spíti ton Technón: This hotel is especially for culturally interested people.


Image

Spíti tis fýsis: This hotel is for nature lovers.




Culture
Sophistan culture contains many features of Greek culture, combined with classical features of a totalitarian state. Thus, the philosopher Plato is quite worshiped in politics and society, as was Karl Marx in the Soviet Union. In almost every public building stands a portrait of him. The life of humans is over-regulated and strongly dependent on their caste. The intellectual ruling caste lives in high culture with theaters, museums, balls and concerts and enjoying something that is comparable to freedom of expression. The caste of the workers, on the other hand, lives in constant observation and has to deal with fairly low standards.
Nudity is required by law, only the guards and some selected professions are allowed to wear clothes. The official languages of the Confederation are Greek and Latin. In Polis, mainly Greek is spoken. Most sophists profess no religion. Although religion is not forbidden, it is highly frowned upon. It distracts from philosophizing. Education and philosophy are extremely important in Sophistan, both of which are not independent of state ideology. Even though all drugs are banned, it does not prevent people from gathering in pubs and going to restaurants. The highly developed black market helps.

For interested there is something to fill out here:

Please add photo..

The only entrance to Sophistan is the port of Polis, where there is also the registration center. Automobiles in the interior are not allowed.

OOC rules
- This is a very open world free social RP. There are several narrative threads that can be followed, but this is not necessary..

- I as OP maintain the right to play any NPC, whether they are planned or random to interact with your character. You may also interact with a random NPC which you can invent on the spot.

- When you post, your first line must be Bolded, stating your location and character name.

- No violence against NPC unless it is provoked.

- You always stay within polis.

-It is possible to break laws to create a scenario.

-The entry to Sophistan is difficult and expensive. So it would be logical that your character is either rich, politically charged or a famous intellectual.

Bio:
    Aurora was born in 2000 to Capitano Luigi Alce of the Confederated Coast Guard, and his wife, in Alto Mare. Her mother works in the library of the Imbarco del Grande Guardiano, the Boarding School of the Great Guardian, and thus managed to get her a place there after her father stayed at sea in 2010 (his vessel, the Zampa del Lupo, was damaged in a storm, he being washed off the vessel and probably drowning).
    In 2002, his vessel was the first vessel of the Confederated Coast Guard to visit the Free Lands since the Second Vellenge War. There, he told a few officers of the SDF-Navy during small talk, that he had a little daughter (Aurora), them pooling money to buy a Guarding Fox Plushie, which she has to this day. He's called Ruvido.
    Her educational career was unassuming (which was one of the reasons for her to go to Kuronami), with her excelling in mathematics and sciences, while managing in languages and sports, while she is not good in social sciences like History.
    She once wanted to, after graduation, study astronomy and astrophysics, but that was before she, by coincidence, found out, that she was better suited for being a businesswoman. She became the apprentice of her father's old acquaintance Silvio Esecutore, who she knew from the start to be a member and Enforcer of the LCN.
    In 2019, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival.
    Later in the same year, she was involved in the Activities in Port Ember of Selkie and Lutetian Companies, representing the Casa di Commercio dei Viticoltori a Fortezza and, unofficially, the LCN. She used the chance to see a bit of the country and was contacted by Johnny Azula, (where we currently stand ICly with PE).

Bio:
    Nolwenn Drochnós of the Tribe of Cavan was born in Forfar in 2002, as daughter of the large landowner and forestry magnate Raidri Drochnós of the Tribe of Cavan and his wife Ava. She is the oldest of three children, the other two (Finnegan, 2005, and Leonard, 2007) being boys. She often spent time in the visitor area of the Adhmad Wood Processing Plant, watching the large machines of her father's workplace bring in and process the lumber brought from the Great Woods.
    She took the entrance exams for the Iris Boarding School Complex in 2008 and succeeded. In her first school year already, she fell in love with the Sensha-Do Team and its large machines, almost vowing to one day be a member of the team. In 2013, that wish was fulfilled, she became part of the team aboard one of the Toirneach Motor Gun Carriages, being the Assistant Gunner. In 2015, she was transferred to driving training for one of the Crogall Amphibious Armoured Vehicles, which she passed with flying colours and, in 2017, became vehicle commander of Ronm-Dó. Her first match as commander was watched by her parents, who almost burst with pride.
    In 2019, she was promoted to Lieutenant of Ronm-Squadron. During the 2019 Iris Boarding School Complex Sensha-Do Convention, she had a short affair with a member of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team, although she does not want to say, who it was.
    Nolwenn is set to graduate in 2021. After that, she wants to study, although she does not yet know what. She tends towards forestry, but she is not sure yet.

Bio:
    Silvio Esecutore was born in Miniera, Lutetii, in 1974. His childhood was influenced by the coup fo the Republican Junta in 1976, its rise and, in 1983, its attempt to reconquer Mount Vellenge - the Second Vellenge War, in which the Free Lands and Lutetii almost destroyed each other.
    Shortly afterwards, the Lutetian Civil War happened, lasting from 1985 to 1987. In 1986, he and his family had to fight for their survival in the besieged city of Miniera.
    The 12 year old boy saw and did things, which were not nice and will not be detailed here, lost his family to marauding soldiers and, one night, tried to steal from the wrong people: A man of the LCN, who pitied him instead of just killing him.
    He took him in and saw to it, that Silvio got into a good boarding school and made sure, that the lad would contact him after graduation. Judging by his grades, he was an average student, but he did clash with fellow students on a weekly basis. Further looking into that by his foster father revealed, that he got into fights because his fellow students were rude to girls, the young man rising to their defense.
    Graduating in 1992, with 18, he became a conscript for the Navy, where he got to know a young man by the name of Luigi Alce, who, after the disbandment of the military in the same year, joined the Coast Guard.
    The two stayed in touch, even after, in 2000, Luigi's daughter Aurora was born.
    In 1994, Silvio joined one of the LCN's front companies as an apprentice businessman, soon making a little name for himself. He became an Enforcer in 1999 and got into the circle of Antonio Siggaro in 2009. Siggaro is one of the highest men within the LCN, usually responsible for expansion projects.
    In 2010, Luigi died and Silvio got acquainted with his daughter, Aurora, a girl of ten, and arranged for her to be sent to one of the best boarding schools of the country. He also financed her trip and year abroad to Kuronami in 2018, without her knowledge.
    In 2019, he was surprised by her approaching her to become his apprentice - he still had her join him, with recommendation of Siggaro, making her an Apprentice-Mafiosa. Officially, she is his apprentice as a businesswoman. Going to Port Ember was basically their first larger job together.

With her home situation becoming worse and worse, with her parents finally filing a divorce in 2011, Tank Sport and Sensha-Do became her refuge and hold in a world, which seemed to give in to madness. As divorces are frowned upon in Selkie-Society, Cao was ostracised by her friends.

Good evening,
I would be interested in this RP, though I must ask, how this would affect the RP? Also, can you tell us a bit more about Sophistan in general and Polis in particular, like history or culture or its cuisine?
Thanks in advance for a reply!

Good eve!

I am also very interested in joining, but also have some questions if you do not mind.

1. I want to send a renowned professional/academic to your nation, on the premise of coming to visit as a guest lecturer, invited by one of your universities. Is this something your ultr academics would do?

2. And if so, what fields are prohibited? For example I wanted to send a master brewer, until I noticed that your nation practices prohibition.. then I considered a Business Philosopher, until I noticed you practice socialism.. so is there any other fields I must consider to avoid?

3. I have the same concern as my good mate Selks regarding the compulsary nudism.. I am not sure a my renowned academic idea would work in such an instance, and would need a plan b

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm already working on a factbook, which might bring some light into the dark. In the introductory article I add the section Culture. Of course, I'm also willing to answer questions during role-playing.
In Sophistan, for ideological reasons, clothing is banned (which symbolically represents the regime's totalitarianism and arbitrariness).
I would like to include it in the roleplaying game as it can lead to some narrative strands. Nudity is often a tourist attraction. Maybe that can help you.

Of course, I like to answer the questions:
1. The Sophist universities indeed invite guest lecturers. Your character would even have an extremely high reputation and admiration in society.
2. The academic discourse is relatively free and open. However, it should not involve direct criticism of the Sophist system. A business philosopher would go, because they are also in a planned economy (just stop in the civil service) and can definitely carry forward. As a master brewer, you can also talk about alcohol, but you just can not have one with you and taste it.
Both characters could be interesting for storylines.
3. I actually see that as an ideological gray area. Although I would let the nudity in the role play, but you are as a lecturer (especially as a philosopher) in the rank of this ban to work around.

Thank you very much for your quick replies. I have a few ideas now:
    1. Fairly bog-standard, a man or two making a vacation, enjoying the sights, the beach and the sights on the beach. I actually thought about him/them being Marcach, so maybe we could mix that in with a cultural mission?
    2. A couple of girls from the Iris Boarding School Complex Sensha-Do Team making a small vacation together. It would connect with some bridging days falling well in the Free Lands and thus work into a four to five day vacation celebrating some, yet undefined milestone for their team (which has the means to do so, don't worry). I was actually thinking about Ronm-Dó's Crew.
    3. A businessperson/A pair of businesspersons, who would be quite confused by the nudity laws and their application, but who would do as the Romans do, to quite an interesting effect. Also, said businessperson/s may or may not have connections to the Black Market and their own countries Mafia, so... there's that.

What do you think?
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.

I like the number two very much. I could work with the three too. Number one would be difficult.

Would be accepted. However, you must remember that the young age could cause some restrictions. Maybe you think about it again

Thank you very much for your quick replies. I have a few ideas now:
    1. Fairly bog-standard, a man or two making a vacation, enjoying the sights, the beach and the sights on the beach. I actually thought about him/them being Marcach, so maybe we could mix that in with a cultural mission?
    2. A couple of girls from the Iris Boarding School Complex Sensha-Do Team making a small vacation together. It would connect with some bridging days falling well in the Free Lands and thus work into a four to five day vacation celebrating some, yet undefined milestone for their team (which has the means to do so, don't worry). I was actually thinking about Ronm-Dó's Crew.
    3. A businessperson/A pair of businesspersons, who would be quite confused by the nudity laws and their application, but who would do as the Romans do, to quite an interesting effect. Also, said businessperson/s may or may not have connections to the Black Market and their own countries Mafia, so... there's that.

What do you think?

I like the number two very much. I could work with the three too. Number one would be difficult.


Okay, that could be arranged. I'll start writing the apps, then.
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
My people are called the Selkie, the nation is usually called the Free Lands in MT-settings. Thanks.

Alright, here we go! The articles for the four lassies are made and now I can present the applications! Generally speaking, for images, go to the Wikia, they're there and the articles will be linked to.
Though, one question popped up about the whole nudity-thing: What about shoes or sandals? Can they be worn?
Also, I am aware, that their age (or lack thereof) could cause issues, but I am willing to take that.

Bio:
    Nolwenn Drochnós of the Tribe of Cavan was born in Forfar in 2002, as daughter of the large landowner and forestry magnate Raidri Drochnós of the Tribe of Cavan and his wife Ava. She is the oldest of three children, the other two (Finnegan, 2005, and Leonard, 2007) being boys. She often spent time in the visitor area of the Adhmad Wood Processing Plant, watching the large machines of her father's workplace bring in and process the lumber brought from the Great Woods.
    She took the entrance exams for the Iris Boarding School Complex in 2008 and succeeded. In her first school year already, she fell in love with the Sensha-Do Team and its large machines, almost vowing to one day be a member of the team. In 2013, that wish was fulfilled, she became part of the team aboard one of the Toirneach Motor Gun Carriages, being the Assistant Gunner. In 2015, she was transferred to driving training for one of the Crogall Amphibious Armoured Vehicles, which she passed with flying colours and, in 2017, became vehicle commander of Ronm-Dó. Her first match as commander was watched by her parents, who almost burst with pride.
    In 2019, she was promoted to Lieutenant of Ronm-Squadron. During the 2019 Iris Boarding School Complex Sensha-Do Convention, she had a short affair with a member of the Naval School Sensha-Do Team, although she does not want to say, who it was.
    Nolwenn is set to graduate in 2021. After that, she wants to study, although she does not yet know what. She tends towards forestry, but she is not sure yet.

    In 2010, Cao tried to apply to the Iris Boarding School Complex, but she did not make the cut. She took the exams again in 2015 and this time, she succeeded, joining the school in time for Middle School. In that time between taking the exams, she discovered Sensha-Do and Tank Sport, becoming a fan of both (she still cheers for Realincse Fánaígh). With her home situation becoming worse and worse, with her parents finally filing a divorce in 2011, Tank Sport and Sensha-Do became her refuge and hold in a world, which seemed to give in to madness. As divorces are frowned upon in Selkie-Society, Cao was ostracised by her friends.
    Once she was at the Iris, she immediately set out to join the Coileáin, first as assistant gunner on one of the Toirneach Motor Gun Carriages, then as Gunner, before being assigned to Ronm-Dó in 2017.

The Merchants
Full Name & Surname:
Age:

Gender:
    Male.

    Business.
Bio:
    Silvio Esecutore was born in Miniera, Lutetii, in 1974. His childhood was influenced by the coup fo the Republican Junta in 1976, its rise and, in 1983, its attempt to reconquer Mount Vellenge - the Second Vellenge War, in which the Free Lands and Lutetii almost destroyed each other.
    Shortly afterwards, the Lutetian Civil War happened, lasting from 1985 to 1987. In 1986, he and his family had to fight for their survival in the besieged city of Miniera.
    The 12 year old boy saw and did things, which were not nice and will not be detailed here, lost his family to marauding soldiers and, one night, tried to steal from the wrong people: A man of the LCN, who pitied him instead of just killing him.
    He took him in and saw to it, that Silvio got into a good boarding school and made sure, that the lad would contact him after graduation. Judging by his grades, he was an average student, but he did clash with fellow students on a weekly basis. Further looking into that by his foster father revealed, that he got into fights because his fellow students were rude to girls, the young man rising to their defense.
    Graduating in 1992, with 18, he became a conscript for the Navy, where he got to know a young man by the name of Luigi Alce, who, after the disbandment of the military in the same year, joined the Coast Guard.
    The two stayed in touch, even after, in 2000, Luigi's daughter Aurora was born.
    In 1994, Silvio joined one of the LCN's front companies as an apprentice businessman, soon making a little name for himself. He became an Enforcer in 1999 and got into the circle of Antonio Siggaro in 2009. Siggaro is one of the highest men within the LCN, usually responsible for expansion projects.
    In 2010, Luigi died and Silvio got acquainted with his daughter, Aurora, a girl of ten, and arranged for her to be sent to one of the best boarding schools of the country. He also financed her trip and year abroad to Kuronami in 2018, without her knowledge.
    In 2019, he was surprised by her approaching her to become his apprentice - he still had her join him, with recommendation of Siggaro, making her an Apprentice-Mafiosa. Officially, she is his apprentice as a businesswoman. Going to Port Ember was basically their first larger job together.

Bio:
    Aurora was born in 2000 to Capitano Luigi Alce of the Confederated Coast Guard, and his wife, in Alto Mare. Her mother works in the library of the Imbarco del Grande Guardiano, the Boarding School of the Great Guardian, and thus managed to get her a place there after her father stayed at sea in 2010 (his vessel, the Zampa del Lupo, was damaged in a storm, he being washed off the vessel and probably drowning).
    In 2002, his vessel was the first vessel of the Confederated Coast Guard to visit the Free Lands since the Second Vellenge War. There, he told a few officers of the SDF-Navy during small talk, that he had a little daughter (Aurora), them pooling money to buy a Guarding Fox Plushie, which she has to this day. He's called Ruvido.
    Her educational career was unassuming (which was one of the reasons for her to go to Kuronami), with her excelling in mathematics and sciences, while managing in languages and sports, while she is not good in social sciences like History.
    She once wanted to, after graduation, study astronomy and astrophysics, but that was before she, by coincidence, found out, that she was better suited for being a businesswoman. She became the apprentice of her father's old acquaintance Silvio Esecutore, who she knew from the start to be a member and Enforcer of the LCN.
    In 2019, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival.
    Later in the same year, she was involved in the Activities in Port Ember of Selkie and Lutetian Companies, representing the Casa di Commercio dei Viticoltori a Fortezza and, unofficially, the LCN. She used the chance to see a bit of the country and was contacted by Johnny Azula, (where we currently stand ICly with PE).

    She once wanted to, after graduation, study astronomy and astrophysics, but that was before she, by coincidence, found out, that she was better suited for being a businesswoman. She became the apprentice of her father's old acquaintance Silvio Esecutore, who she knew from the start to be a member and Enforcer of the LCN.
    In 2019, she attended the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival.
    Later in the same year, she was involved in the Activities in Port Ember of Selkie and Lutetian Companies, representing the Casa di Commercio dei Viticoltori a Fortezza and, unofficially, the LCN. She used the chance to see a bit of the country and was contacted by Johnny Azula, (where we currently stand ICly with PE).



Accepted! You will enter Sophistan soon via Polis Harbour.

Yes, sandals are allowed. As the stone floor in the cities heats up.

Wonderful, thank you!

Good news about the sandals, too. No need to burn the feet!
I play PT, MT and a bit FT. I am into character-RPs.
My people are called the Selkie, the nation is usually called the Free Lands in MT-settings. Thanks.

I have already started the IC. I'll complete the factbook by the way, because I might get some suggestions during the game.

Cool. If you need any help, feel free to ask.
Though, one small thing: I noted an error in my applications for Silvio and Aurora, namely, I describe their occupations as "Student, Iris Boarding School Complex." That is, of course, wrong. They're both merchants. Would you mind me changing that?

Oii, Sophistan,
I've decided to send two high-ups to Polis for a vacation trip, and, in consultation with Selks, whom I happen to be good friends with, also two charming ladies who will follow the LCN to a business trip. Unless you have objections in some way or the other, I'd say, this is going to be fun! ^^
In case of any questions, feel free to ask!
And there we go:


Full Name & Surname:
Hagen Betz.

Age:
42.

Gender:
Male.

Nationality:
Wiedheimer.

Country of Birth:
The Free City of Wiedheim.

Occupation:
Banker and Member of the Magistrat.

Reason of Vacation:
Vacation.

Bio:
Hagen Betz was born on May 8, 1977, in Wiedheim-Westend, into a family of farm owners, who have run one of the Westend's huge grain and cattle farms. Grown up with five siblings, he had an unassuming school career, graduating in 1996 and studying Financial Management, first at the UoW (University of Wiedheim), then at the UoP (University of Pontrath, in the Federation of Lillorainen), where he graduated with a Master's Degree in 2001. Back in Wiedheim, he worked as a financial advisor for the Wiedheimer branch of the Fylaba (Fylerische Landesbank, Fylerian State Bank), until 2008, where he managed a new-founded Bad Bank for several Wiedheimer banks as a consequence of the 2008 Financial Crisis (which, contrary to logical assumption, did not hit the Free City too hard, despite being dependent on its banking sector a lot). In 2014, he became head of the Northern Branch of the Bank of Wiedheim, and a member of the Magistrat (the Wiedheimer city-council) the same time. Within the five years since then, he established the legal base for a monetary fund for the Free City, quickly convincing the other members, as well as Supreme Mayor Milena Prescher, to vote it through and make his draft valid law in 2015. Since then, he has continuously worked on optimizing the processes of this.
Now, he decided to need some vacation, and read about Sophistan, whose system, based on ancient philosophy, has fascinated him ever since he read about it first - though, it's solely a vacation, not any form of diplomatic event or anything along these lines.

Full Name & Surname:
Sabrina Fetscher.

Age:
28.

Gender:
Female.

Nationality:
Wiedheimer.

Country of Birth:
The Free City of Wiedheim.

Occupation:
Programmer; Server Maintenance & Security Manager of the Bank of Wiedheim.

Reason of Vacation:
Vacation.

Bio:
Sabrina Fetscher was born on July 8, 1991, in Wiedheim-Kesselbrunn, as the daughter of the Town Patrol Commanders Roland Fetscher and Greta Fetscher (née Dengenbach). Contrary to her twin brother Ingo (18 minutes younger), who is now a Commander himself, Sabrina never sought a military career, but got interested in Information Technology from an early age. After graduation in 2009, she studied IT Application at the UoW, then worked for the technical surveillance department of the Wiedheimer Metro from 2014 to 2016 - after that, she switched for the Bank of Wiedheim, where she, up until now, coordinates all transferring processes of the Wiedheimer Batzen (a purely digital currency), as well as the security of the servers.
She has known Hagen Betz for quite some time, and decided to accompany him on his vacation to Sophistan.

Full Name & Surname:
Naran Amarin.

Age:
33.

Gender:
Female.

Nationality:
Wiedheimer & Sharulsi.

Country of Birth:
The Sharulsi Khanate.

Occupation:
Merchant.

Reason of Vacation:
Business.

Bio:
Naran Amarin was born on August 3, 1986, in Ulaanels, Sharulsi Khanate. Her father, owner of one of the country's numerous mining companies, died from an unknown disease when Naran was four; her mother, a horsearcher of the Mangudai unit, decided to sell the company for not having to run it. Still growing up in a rich house, Naran graduated in 2004 and studied Economics and Philosophy at the University of Mandalereg, where she met Kenji Fukuda, the son of a powerful Shikonjimanese mobster organizing the smuggling of Sharulsi precious metals to the former colonial power. Naran and Kenji lived in a relationship, with Naran well-aware of the Fukuda Clan's businesses and Kenji being involved in them. In 2007, Kenji was shot by the Sharulsi Police during an attempt to escape from being arrested; Naran continued his activities - after a few years, the Khanate became a dangerous place for her, thus, in 2011, she escaped to the Free City of Wiedheim, where she quickly met another smuggling ring, delivering weapons, cheap alcohol, and drugs to resistance fighters in the Republic of Stella Dorata, a neighboring military dictatorship. The activities of the clan, which goes by the name La Cricca dello Arcipelago Lillorese (The Clan of the Lillöer-Archipelago, LCAL), are unofficially tolerated (and, according to rumors, even supported) by the Wiedheimer Magistrat and the Federal Government of Lillorainen due to their rather hostile stance towards the RSD. Officially, Naran works for the Wiedheimer Commercial Office (Handelskammer).
Allegedly, Timur Sambuu Amarin, her cousin, who is a terrorist suspect, has come to Wiedheim in 2019 after the Al'Arz attack in Utica to see Naran, but there is no evidence of any contact between them. Timur has already left the Free City.
Naran is well-educated and linguistically skilled; aside from her mother tongue (Sharulsi Mongolian), she speaks English, German, and some Greek.

Full Name & Surname:
Miriam Kardebender.

Age:
21.

Gender:
Female.

Nationality:
Wiedheimer.

Country of Birth:
The Free City of Wiedheim.

Occupation:
Merchant.

Reason of Vacation:
Business.

Bio:
Miriam Kardebender was born on June 26, 1998, in Wiedheim-Kronberg, into a large family owning an logistics company - thus, it should hardly surprise, that she was raised to take over a higher position in the family business as well. Therefore, she finished school already after grade nine in 2014 and began an apprenticeship at Kardebender Logistics Ltd., with its huge number of trucks and ships particularly in Wiedheim itself, as well as in neighboring Lillorainen, where parts of her family reside as well. In 2016, her parents opened to her during a family feast, that they cooperated with the LCAL - of course, unofficially. Miriam got in touch with some of its members later on, especially with Naran, whom she stayed friends (and colleagues) with up until today, and whom she also accompanies to the business trip to Sophistan. Miriam officially finished her apprenticeship in 2018 and started to work in the company's management. Her degree of knowledge on the LCAL activities, as well as those of other organizations in the Wiedheimer underworld and the one of neighboring countries, can be considered sufficient.
