Busk muses than an enemy is merely an enema that asks why.
Busk was a member of the Kooluk Empire's Imperial Faction in the last days of the Empire. Although he was a serious officer, he was prone to being loose in terms of faithfully adhering to orders or mission parameters.
He was the young brother of Ornela and as his authority was not as wide-ranging as either his sister's or Princess Corselia's, he would often act according to their opinions and views. Still, he was a competent official and so had been charged with administrating regions of southern Kooluk, including El-Eal Fortress and Merseto. He was part of the Imperial Faction's meetings about their maneuverings against the Patriarchal Faction, showing a further degree of trust in his abilities.
Following the collapse of the Kooluk Empire, Busk attempted to lay the blame at the feet of Iskas but Ornela would stop him, stating they all had their part in the nation's ultimate demise.
