We learn a lot about the Beneritt Group in this volume. An alliance of powerful corporations and weapons manufacturers, they rule the solar system with an iron fist. However, despite their strength, we found that the Group was rife with contradictions. In the final episode, Guel’s father Vim Jeturk plotted to assassinate Delling’s chairman and gain control of the Corporation through his son’s engagement to Miorine, Delling’s daughter. In this episode, Vim continues to run rampant behind the scenes, even teaming up with his “enemy” to trouble Delling. The other members of the Group tend to deal with the problems of the book. Of particular interest is Sarius Zenelli, an elderly man who serves as a cautious voice of reason on the board. The Beneritt Corporation may include cold-blooded and ruthless corporate bosses, but the exact taste of cold-bloodedness varies from person to person.
Of course, the two biggest players here are Delling and his daughter Miorine. Delling is an autocrat who intentionally breaks his own rules to circumvent challenges to his authority. While the Beneritt Group preached the doctrine of self-sufficiency and the “only the strong survive” rhetoric, it is clear that Delling believed that philosophy was only in moderation when it kept him in control. It was that hypocrisy that pushed Miorine up a wall, causing her all the frustration that comes when a teenager catches their parents lying. When she asked to know if her father considered himself a king rather than a president, Delling simply replied, “yes”. This isn’t particularly refined writing by screenwriter Ichiro Okouchi, but the capitalist world we live in isn’t particularly subtle either.
