12 Days of Drabbles! Day 10 - "Lords of Avarice"  
Yeah...I dunno. Olivia is cool.

Day 10 - "Lords"
Title: Lords of Avarice
Rating: PG
Series: Manga/Brotherhood
Word Count: 297
Characters: Olivia Armstrong
Summary: She's stuck in a room with ten greedy higher-ups...

Olivia Mira Armstrong knew how to tackle the merciless North. There was the threat of Drachma, but they never dared attack while she held down her fort. It was freezing cold, but she never let her men see her shiver. Even the wilderness seemed to cave under her hand—not a bear had been seen close to the fort in months.

There, she was the master; lord of the land.

At Drachma, she knew how to handle her men. She treated them all equally; from the lowest private to the second officer in command. She was harsh, but fair and just. When she had orders from above, she knew how to handle those as well. Obey what she could, ignore the rest.

Here, it was different.

She had thought that Briggs, on the edge of the country and near the tinderbox that was Drachma, was tough at first to handle. But she was finding Central was only a spark away from eruption.

She was not a weak, simpering woman. Never would she allow herself to show fear. Always she must give the appearance of selfish disinterest—if there was nothing in it for her, then why bother?

Perhaps she was as selfish as they were. Stuck in a room with ten higher ups, each carving up their gain, she had her own agenda. When this dream of theirs came to an end, she’d have to find a way to pick up the pieces, and arrange herself on top.

Only from the top could you guarantee a good life for those below.

There was still time before the plan was set in motion, and in that time, Olivia would wait…watch, and listen.

To fight against ten lords of avarice, she’d have to become as greedy as them.

Oh, quite like this a lot. I can see Olivier becoming greedy for the sake of getting some information from those generals.

I always thought that moment where Olivia got to be The Mole was a moment of awesome for her. She's one of the few people in that situation that can come in, make them think she's in it for her own gain, and yet be undercover all this time.

In short: I think she's totally awesome. XD
