Thoughts on Kislev
by Steve

We all know that Solaris provoked and kept the war between Kislev and Aveh going. Solaris probably even went one step further than this and actually created the nation of Kislev completely for its own purposes of starting a war and collecting battle data. There are five main reasons that lead me to believe this.

1) Kislev is divided into Blocks ordered by letters. Different blocks hold different class citizens. This sounds exactly like Solaris's system of blocks and classes.

2) The Kaiser is a demi-human (shown by his strange appearance and his son, Rico, being a demi-human), demi-humans were "manufactured" in Solaris in the search for higher life forms. It would make sense that Solaris would put a higher supposedly higher life form as head of the country.

3) Their technology is quite advanced compared to Aveh. Rather than developing their own, as Aveh, they just used technology supplied by Solaris. This explains their upper hand in the war untill recently.

4) Their emphasis on battling was created by Solaris to collect battle data.

5) Miang's (disgused as the exocutioner) contact with the Kaiser and ability to tell him what to do suggests powerfull ties between the nations. So there you go, the only one small point to be taken into consideration is the fact that the center of Kislev is a battle ship owned by Roni Fatima. So possibly Kislev was at one time an idependant nation, but certainly at sometime, probably previous to Shakan's coup d'etat, something similar happened in Kislev, powered by Solaris.
