Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian Queen! :))
Offal: “It’s not that either of us liked him, or that we cared. I just don’t like the precedent he set.”

Actually it was 1916. Rasputin was poisoned, then shot, then shot again, and finally thrown off the Petrovsky Bridge into the Malaya Nevka River.
He took a lot of killin’
Be concerned, Morbis. This war is worse than the last one. And considering what your family is, you’re in greater danger than you realize.
Ah! So we are in Post-Czarist Russia! Got it!
