Posted by Civilian Kenzo B’tren-Hyrushi (Governor) in Government Tower Plaza - Inauguration Day (Open to All)
The day had arrived. Kenzo enjoyed pomp and circumstance as much as the next man; but hated when it was directed at him. But such were the demands of office, he had learned.
Looking out from the Governor’s office, he could see the Plaza below. It had been decorated subtly, but with enough flair to be enjoyable without overly extravagant. The stage had been set up and vid cameras were hovering over the square recording the event for posterity. Soon he would make his first official appearance as Governor. He should have been nervous, and he was, but not as much as he thought he should be. Hmmm, I’ll have to give that some thought later he said to himself and then turned and took the suit coat from the back of the chair and pulled it on.
He dressed as he had been for the Federation Council… dark grey suit, jade green tie, red stone tie pin. His long black hair was tied back in the traditional Japanese style, and he checked himself in the mirror. Nodding slightly in approval, he turned and left his office, heading to the lobby where the rest of the government officials and chosen civilians and dignitaries waited for their pre-inauguration meet-and-greet.
Stepping off the lift, he looked around, trying to match faces with records he had read on the way to Oed.
Kenzo Hyrushi, Gov
The first person to introduce himself was the older Police Commissioner. He wore the dress blues of the Oed Police force, a dark blue ensemble outfit with rank insignia on his shoulders. He supported himself with a dark blue cane although he didn’t seem to need one. He was a large well-built man and despite being un the cusp of seventy he didn’t look any older than fifty. He put out his right hand to shake “Welcome to Oed Governor Hyrushi” He smiled a kind grandfatherly smile “I have to admit I’m an admirer of your work in the old DMZ” His accent was only slightly accented to hint at his Nordic heritage.
