What sort of story is this?
Mystery? I could kill Granny and have Fayt and Oljo as the main suspects.
Sin and redemption? Fayt's got a problem with alcohol and/or personal responsibility. Ruin's starting to look like a stiff prude.
Espionage? No one in the office could be a Bunny or Puppet without Ice knowing.
Ruin deciding to try to find out what happened to her mother, that she left Gate City for the most distant point in the Empire she could get to?
_Just_ working her tail off seems like insufficient to plot around.
Oooo . . . Ruin, looking into old census data, can't find her mother anywhere in the 1400 census. or earlier. But there she is with a 6 year old daughter on the Dune Colony, in 1410.
