the General: Proud aristocrat from the Austrohungarian Empire. His mother was French and his father was Austrian. A proud soldier and hunter. His identity was not shaken after WW1 for he finds himself above the rest.
the General: Character so named because she takes on every generic characteristic of any "General" in any book ever written (see Dostoevsky's books, he always has one. In "The Idiot" he had two.): forthright, strong, long-lived, sagacious, and most of all showing endless support for her protege, Tritcheon Hash. The only military person on Coney Island with a rank that is not based on a word associated with plants.
“‘People like us run the world not just by chance but because we’re the only ones capable of doing it. We know your flaws. We know you better than you know yourselves. Our sense of honor compels us to take command, to guide the weak through times as dark as these. And our sense of humor compels us to enjoy it.’”
