Representatives of the Republic of Time in formal attire at the surrender of Mitoma

The surrender was in the manner of bhoskuzhen, which the Republic didn’t understand. Focused on statecraft, on the maintenance of their mythology, they could only see us as downcast and defeated, as they would be if our places were reversed. Though we had been beaten, they couldn’t see that we were surrendering our attachments to victory, to Mitoma and Misuria. Not our cause.
