When I created the Crash world in 1995-96, I originally created a heroine named Sonia. Sonia appears in Salvaged, but she doesn’t get her own book until roughly 2 books after that story takes place. When I revised the story in 2001-2002ish, I realized I needed an antagonist.
I created a self-serving Corpsman named John Mistral. Mistral was a Machiavellian sort who was only looking out for number one. His motivations have changed over the years, so much that he’s changed from being the villain to being a hero, of sorts. But if there’s one character who touches every story line, who has a role in every prequel, tangent and sequel of this world, it’s Mistral.
Today’s Uncounted, you’ll get to meet him. Well, technically, you met him last week, but you just didn’t know it yet. He is neither a hero nor a villain just yet. But he matters.
