A Commissar's daughter does not make friends easily. It is the burden of being the watcher and enforcer of loyalty and justice. Protecting them, mostly from themselves, but not of them.
People by nature are corrupt and selfish. It was corruption that lead to the plague after all, a physical manifestation of a spiritual ailment and even the loyal and just were not immune.
The Commandant mourned father stoically, as she did everything. The Commandant enforces the quarantine strictly because she is loyal to humanity above any individual. And Ourania is her watcher among the teens, watching for the seeds of selfishness, injustice and disloyalty. The Commandant did not wish her to enforce, rather to observe only, but how better to solve a problem than to nip it in the bud?
When Ourania leaves this place she will stand proud before the Commandant for her service. She will be rewarded with a place in the commisariat and take on the Burden. Like the Commandant, Ourania will serve with distinction until she is proven so loyal that the conditioning and cortex bomb are removed and she is allowed to have her own child.

You gain power from sympathetic tokens - items of personal significance that you take from others. Each sympathetic token counts as a String.
You can cast Hexes. Choose two that you know. To cast them, either expend a sympathetic token during a secret ritual, or meet the target’s gaze and chant at them in tongues. Then roll with dark. On a 10 up, the Hex works, and can easily be reversed. On a 7-9, it works but choose one:
When your ritual transgresses the community’s moral and sexual standards, add 1 to your hex-casting roll.
You start the game with two sympathetic tokens. Decide
whose and what they are. - Ashlee, Mark
One of the others caught you rummaging through their friend’s stuff, but kept quiet. They get a String on you. - Mark
After sex, you can take a sympathetic token from them. They know about it, and it’s cool.
The time for subtlety and patience is over. You’re too powerful to put up with their garbage any longer. You hex anyone who slights you. All of your hexes have unexpected side eﬀects, and are more eﬀective than you are comfortable with. To escape your Darkest Self, you must oﬀer peace to the one you have hurt the most.
