Who Is the Busiest Person Connected to the Rangers Saga?

There is a large cast of characters, anyone of whom could fit the above description.

You have, of course, the Board, fighting to repel the Rebels.

There are the Rebels/Requisitioners/Petitioners (or whatever title they happen to have depending on precisely what they are doing).
