Chapter Seven: Supervisor

In time he became a chief administrator.

His tenure in the bureaucracy had spanned a length of time that seemed impossible, spending years at every position as he advanced through the circuit of offices.

He was not a young man when he was restored to life by the miracle of the Continuum.

He was an Octogenarian now, though, he appeared to be a man in the prime of his life.

Those who had been following his career, began to realize that he was extremely old compared to the average citizen.

The average citizen who followed his life story had been living with it for most of their lives, and he was still fascinating to them.

He was a paragon of virtue.

He had made a personal spiritual journey that was marked by the stations in society that he had transitted, going from rebel and outcast, from condemned prisoner, to the highest places in the Imperial administration.

This was noted as more than a curiosity by other administrators at his level, and though he was universally admired, he was also the subject of vicious jealousy

He had made a journey in the space of one lifetime (perhaps two), that the Imperial cult taught the people it would take hundreds of lives, and reincarnations to complete.

When there was no place left for him to ascend to, the Empire ordered him to be drafted into military service, marking a second change in caste and station.

It was another miracle for the people to behold.
