The conflict between Co-consuls Bobby Brooks and Bobby Ramirez has erupted into near–civil war between Aggieland’s two leading citizens. Consul Brooks’ election to consulship was met with accusations of illegitimacy, creating tensions with the cadet legionaries who hold dear the values of their Republic. The recent policy decisions crafted on the floor of Koldus Forum have inspired an uprising.
Consul Ramirez appeared at the head of the I,II, and III Winged legions as they crossed Rubicon Street, marching from their garrison in Upper West Campus. “The cadets were promised additional grain allowances for Duncan Dining Hall and to be awarded land in the province of Off Campus at the end of their four year service,” said Consul Ramirez. “These promises have not been fulfilled and thus, among other threats to our Republic, I must confront those threatening in the student senate.”
As Consul Ramirez draws closer to campus, he will be joined by the Parsonii Horsemen and the I, II, and III Regimente legions from their stronghold in the province of North Gatae. “Consul Brooks needs to be brought to justice for his violation of the campus’ pact with cadet legionnaires,” said Gaius Kaiser, a cadet of the III Regimente Legion. “The ideals of the Republic must be preserved and that begins with taking care of her selfless servants, the legionaries.”
On the floor of the Koldus Forum, Consul Brooks denounced the actions of his co-consul and called upon his legionary Cadet Commander, Brett Sauer, to defend the student senate. “Et tu, Bobby?” said Consul Brooks as he fled east towards Golf Coursus, along with most of the student senate, when the news of Consul Ramirez crossing Rubicon Street reached Main Campus.
Without its leading consul or student senate to govern, the capital and its citizens were sent into a frenzy, with no semblance of order. The absence of a student government ceased all functions and the existence of civilization on Main Campus. Without the I, II, and III Brigada legions enforcing the senators’ policies, looting and riots have become widespread. Not even the sacred Temple of Kyle was left untouched by the student-citizens–turned–barbarians.
Many within the student senate predicted the danger of allowing both a popular cadet legionary and citizen of the Republic to take the office of consulship in last year’s elections. Only time will tell if Consul Ramirez wants justice for his legionaries or to hold power over the Republic with both the Corps and the Senate in his grasp.
