Is Arbiter way over-thinking this again?

[SPOILERS] So let's talk about silentconspirator...

Post by Arbiter on Mon May 08, 2017 4:00 pm

As you can see, I've marked this thread for spoilers. This is because I'd like to be able to talk more or less freely about spoilerific content (as it relates to the Silent Conspiracy) here, without the need for additional spoiler tags. The rule for this thread, which I am Arbiter-arily deciding on right now, is that any information revealed in the main pages of Unichat, as well as any information from the wiki articles that we've been given authcode hints for (ie. the Silent Conspiracy article) can be talked about freely here, but if one of you smart cookies manages to guess the authcode for a wiki article that we haven't been given a hint for yet, you do still need to mark it as a spoiler before talking about it (that is, if you absolutely have to share information that we technically shouldn't know yet...) Therefore, if you are not caught up in the comic or have not figured out the code for the Silent Conspiracy article yet, you might not want to read this thread. Does that seem reasonable?
    Okay, now for the actual point. Is the silentconspirator we've heard from once or twice in the comic the same silentconspirator mentioned in the wiki article, or are they just another Etamnanki copy of the original? The wiki article tells us that the original Sconspirator had a "Caucasian female personality", but many of the copies took names for themselves which "were derived from a wide range of gender and cultural identities". In other words, while the original silentconspirator was a white female, the other conspirators don't necessarily see themselves the same way. And it's worth noting that on Page 50 ("Different directions"), Pancake says "good man" when addressing SC. Did Pancake mean this in an ungendered sense, or is this silentconspirator actually male? And does this mean that they aren't the same person as the original, female SC?

(Inb4 "What if silentconspirator is FtM?" I suppose it's possible, but wouldn't we expect an FtM person to have a male personality, not a female one? Remember the article is explicitly talking about SC's personality... Though I don't know how ethnicity information could be coded in one's personality either so who knows?)

In a burst of randomguessing without checking too much, I've hypothesized that Silentconspirator might be Felicity (Alex's roommate). Female, she might be caucasian, and it's suspicious (at least to me) that she hasn't appeared yet. Plus, she's have a perfect vantage spot in kidnapping EntropicPhantom, and she's suggested once EP to Pancake as a backup target.

Well, this holds up only if Pancake's the same age as Alex (what with him being "childood friends" with silentconspirator). That conflicts with my headcanon of Pancake being much older than other characters, but hey.

The silentconspirator we've seen... Hmmm, I don't know. Sh/he seems to have a fully fleshed out personality, which seems a trait that copies (even those above lower rank) are implied not to have (or have in lesser degree). At least, that's my reading od the last sentences of the silent conspiration wiki page.

Hmmm..

That's an interesting theory. Felicity and SC have different text colours (if the Unicat comic is anything to go on, anyway), but that might not mean anything at all. If Panny really is the same age as the main cast, that's a lot of power for someone so young to hold...

I can confirm that text color is set per account, not per person.

UPDATE: Officially Jossed as of page 85. SC is replacing an IT engineer who Pancake refers to with female pronouns, for one thing, and even more damningly, Silent outright states, "I'm not a personality duplicate." The two silentconspirators are almost certainly the same (female) person, and I definitely did overthink the situation. Oh well.
