Minmatar are tribals with quite cruel rituals and treatment of each other. The confluence of these dark events will lead humanity towards a tragic destiny. But instead of making a really nice story about the Empire having a strong controversy on Jamyl having done clear heresy, she whips out Doomsday Ex Machina, safes the Empire from the otherwise unstoppable Elder fleet with a single shot, and everyone loves her all dmpyrean a sudden.
