Yeah, Alvin has some serious psychological issues, mostly revolving around what happened in Blackpool a year ago, and they color his perceptions on most things. His cousin Ambrose, though a year older, is a lot more naive about the war, and more caught up in the whole courtly knights of the sky thing and the great adventure of it all.

Both character arcs are on a low simmer at the moment, though Alvin's has the possibility to go to full boil pretty fast, depending on circumstances. Assuming that their fire isn't put out with a mishandled emergency landing or the arrival of Eindeckers...

There will be a bit more about what happened in Blackpool, probably sometime later this week unless something really interesting happens in his daily flights.
