The Silent Rose Organization and The Color Black
Anyone remotely familiar with Chimre, Chimri culture, or The Silent Rose Organization in any capacity has seen the faction's emphasis on-- and perhaps even obsession with-- color.
Whites, golds, and pastel blues and violets are the dominant scheme in almost every significant aspect of life and culture fabricated or administrated by the Rose, from the cities of Laps-du-Ment and Ros Albion, to the countless flags and emblems in use, standard-issue military uniforms and even the Masqued Swan, Chimre's national bird.
One might reason that such colors are simply the Dreamwaker'sfavorites, a fair observation in part--
but why, then, are the much-feared Corro Docs dressed to the nines in black from their boots, gloves and jackets to the very carriages they ride within and the pseudoleupaks who pull them?
In a place so painstakingly crafted into a haven of brilliance, one can only assume that these heralds of a terrible and uncertain fate are manufactured for nothing less than absolute intimidation.
The massive golden Cronois leupaks may stand upon street corners like golems, the Silvermanes-- frightening and alien in their own right for a number of reasons-- march periodically down the streets with their white Lapsworgn on their way to their outposts, and even the tiny --and notably, white--survarani skitter about in alleyways and past marketplaces like stray cats, always watching ...
... but there is never a Cory to be found at any time of day or night until that moment when somewhere, a suspect has been cornered.
Never seen or heard from in any capacity unless government-designated trouble is afoot, these scientific sentinels surge unexpectedly onto a scene like demons bursting from the depths of a nightmare.
Clad in their dark coats, they move and act with frightening coordination, swallowing up their chosen victim before vanishing again as swiftly as it came.
It is said that would-be criminals who witness such a collection are frightened out of whatever deed they may have been considering.
This may well be true-- but such imagery sticks in the heads of innocent folk as well, perhaps for the rest of their lives.
