Are the vindicators or the plague squad proxies? You might try not to recall all my ramblings, but I believe that the basilisks alliance is a creation of the courts. I think the dark court and Exiles are using the basilisks alliance to upset the balance of the land. They are trying to corrupt the land and at the same time use the chaos seeds to break the lock the keeps them in prison. Do proxies necessarily need to know the all the puppet masters plains? Would you consider Singh a proxy? How about the chaos seeds themselves? The Chaos Seeds were brought to the land blindly by the Exiles. Were the Exiles not using the chaos seeds to do what they wanted but couldn’t do? They wanted that lock broke so they got the chaos seeds so they might do it for them. I contraire, the United States and The Soviet Union were distinctly different. One capitalist the other communist. One cherished freedom the other cherished control. Like the Originals both have the ability to destroy the world over killing each other and everyone else becoming collateral damage. How many countries in the world had been down trodden or destroyed due to the USA and Russia backing the other side as the two countries play global chess? How many have died due to them? In my mind they both act a lot like the Originals.
