I like the idea as long as it’s done in a smooth way. Like helping someone increase their Rank through your career, or covering up an incident to save someone’s political career. That ways it’s more of a returned favor. Adds a nice addition of messy human politics.
Just afraid of a story of ultimate protagonist, where they control anything and everything. Working in a set story or conditions makes choices that much more meaningfull.
Been a bit since I have posted here. Still sounds like it will be amazing! Whatever you decide will be the best choice.
