The Emperor of All Oonsda considered himself to be a man of the people. Thus, he often took the elevator to and from the Core in the company of a small army of bodyguards.

“Dear Seven Spirits below, this is terrible!” he cried during one such Sunday trip. “I must say I do not much care for this jaunty tune. Elevators need music that is calming and serene. Something must be done.”

Near the back of the car, the Imperial Elevator Music Composer flattened himself against the steel and did his best to look inconspicuous.
