the city of bellona
Bellona, city in the sky, is on the surface a place of art and culture. Its buildings are tall and elegant, with simple lines and delicate edges catching the light of the nearby sun. At night they all light up, shining in neon, truly creating a city that never sleeps. Transport is conducted via a mix of hovercrafts and monorail, speeding between the buildings and over the remnants of the city's old canal system. The peace is kept, at least around Etoile Heights and Orsir Flat, by an automated security system overseen by officers contracted to Bellona Security.
The city is run by the Consul's advisors, with the Consul themselves overseeing from the highest rooms in Bellona Tower. Each member has their own responsibilities within the city, overseeing a particular aspect of life in Bellona. The current active advisors are:
1. SAKUMA JIROU, SECURITY
2. OPEN, ARTS
3. OPEN, ENTERTAINMENT
4. OPEN, COMMERCE
5. OPEN, MAINTENENCE
While the main attractions of the city, especially within the Heights, are under the control of the Consul and their advisors, there are many places to escape from their watchful eyes. The city is built as a wheel, with the Bellona Tower as its centre point, and the closer you get to the edges, the less scrutiny you will face from the city's government.
