The Bird Empire: Prologue

A little story series I started, featuring a sci-fi setting.

I have lately been possessed by a grand novel idea, and until I will have the time and means to write it, I thought to flesh out a part of the imagined world by writing an inconsequential series that will have no effect on the grand scheme of things but which will serve as a practice for my writing, and a repository for various ideas, characters and such.

This is the prologue to this series called The Bird Empire, a series which captures the life of certain personages living under the regime of an Empire which conquered their planet.

    I'd like this Empire to be somewhat better explained in the prologue. For a second there I was confused if Vaghelauchens had a civil war or there was a foreign invader.

      I purposely experiment with techniques such as obscurantism and pluri-perspectivism in order to convey the series as a form of progressive puzzle. The Empire was purposely alluded to ambiguously here and I planned to have it, and its society, gradually revealed along the series.
      How I succeed in this regard... it remains for the audience to decide.

      I can now see that the last paragraph could have deserved a slightly more descriptive elaboration, though.
