The betrayals we suffered after The War caught us by surprise.  Even most of those in Charles’ family did not see them coming.  Perhaps we should have.  We knew they did not like us.  Even those nominally on Charles’ side were uncomfortable with the…side effects of the Peloran Treatments.  They simply did not like the idea of anybody being better than they were, at anything.  But we should have foreseen what the real hardliners would do.  Somehow.
