Julian wants to get some answers, but Orson turns into the one asking questions.
The SADP sigil is a bastardization of an Old World flag from South America. It depicts a white crescent representing the moon over a blue field representing the earth. Popular thought in the SADP is that the moon is a guardian of the earth. Therefore, they see themselves as protectors of their lands, and seek to find, preserve and guard all manner of flora and fauna. The flip side of this is that the SADP has a well earned reputation of theft. Other city-states rarely welcome SADP humanitarian aid due to fear of some part of their plant or seed stores turning up missing.
