Meet Jester John. Miner. Permit holder. Rebel.
Though he understood that he had to pay for the right to mine in Abudban, he hated the New Order. So he plotted against it. Like all other such plots, it failed because miners don't want to do things.
Why did this rebel miner pay in the first place? Because his employer, Zantiu-Braun Corporation, required it. Jester didn't like that.
Before you can leave your corporation, you must resign all of your corp roles, which takes 24 hours. Fellow rebel Racha Ni'Tar cheered Jester's decision to leave Zantiu.
The CEO of the corp, Aria Stane, returned to Abudban just in time to hear Jester's reckless talk in local. Jester had entrusted Aria with 10 billion isk worth of his blueprints, stored in the corp hangar. In light of Jester's treason, Aria confiscated them.
The rebels were displeased, as they always are when justice is done.
Members of the same corporation may attack each other freely, without Concord interference. This is often called "awoxing", but normally it refers to people who join a corp to attack others. Now Jester was threatened with a kind of reverse-awox.
Jester couldn't wait out the 24 hours to leave corp. He just had to get that sweet, sweet Abudban ice. True to her word, Aria attacked him. With her Orca.
Aria's Orca had a set of Hammerhead II drones, which methodically chewed through Jester's Mackinaw.
Racha was disgusted to watch the execution of her ideological companion. Yet it is the fate of all who oppose us.
Jester could have had a bright future. But there is no future outside the loving embrace of the New Order. As CEO, Aria enforced the law on a member of her corp. Is this the beginning of a new era of corporate responsibility?
In a hushed voice, Jester vowed revenge.
Step one in his revenge plot was to beg for the return of his blueprints.
Jester failed to confess and repent of his crimes, so Aria kept the blueprints. Bad publicity? That's for you to decide, dear reader.
Then Jester asked whether he could petition CCP for his ship to be returned. He claimed he was just considering all the options, but what about the most obvious option--obedience to the New Order?
Jester vowed revenge once more, and logged for the evening. I wouldn't count on his getting vengeance, though. I hear that costs a lot of credits.
Aria's leadership and commitment to the Code inspires us all. One day, every CEO in highsec will do likewise, to ensure the purity and fellowship of all their corp members. Won't that be splendid? Let us hasten the day.
