Constance Palmer-Levy was a Havenite citizen and politician.

Biography Edit

A member of the Legislaturalist class of Havenite society, Palmer-Levy quickly rose to the highest level of the People's Republic's government, until becoming Secretary for Internal Security and head of the Office of Internal Security (InSec) sometime before 1904 PD and therefore the responsible for the secret police apparatus of Haven. As such, Palmer-Levy was personally supervising the investigation on the murder of Secretary of the Economy Walter Frankel. She was against using brute force to combat the Citizens' Rights Union. She advocated war to help take the pressure off of the domestic front, and wanted to spin the potentially high casualty rate in their favor.

Palmer-Levy's control of InSec made her one of the most dangerous members of the Legislaturist government for those that fought to overthrow it. Thus, before moving against Hereditary President Sidney Harris and the rest of his Cabinet, the conspiracy led by Robert Stanton Pierre sought to get rid of Palmer-Levy first. The danger posed by InSec and the difficulty of assassinating one of the most heavily guarded people in the People's Republic was greatly reduced by the fact that, utterly unsuspected by Palmer-Levy, her unobtrusive and lethally effective subordinate Saint-Just was Pierre's closest ally.

Using classified information on her schedule provided by her second-in-command Oscar Saint-Just, a cell of the Citizens' Rights Union led by Kevin Usher fired an anti-aircraft missile at Secretary Palmer-Levy's car. The destruction of the car caused the death of Palmer-Levy and her entire security detail. (HH3)

Her death paved the way for a non-Legislaturalist, Saint-Just, to take over InSec, the largest and most important security apparatus in the People's Republic. Naturally, the investigation into her tragic death did not make any progress. (HH4)
