The Mentor himself hired me on this project. He told me that the Russian Academy of Sciences was founded in Saint Petersburg by Peter the Great in the 18th century, after intense lobbying by Gottfried Leibniz.
Much more recently, Sergey Fedorovich Oldenburg, a leading ethnographer and activist in the Kadet party, met with Lenin and agreed that the Academy should work with the new Soviet Regime. Both men are sympathetic to our Brotherhood and have given us access to several of their facilities. This facility is located just outside of Moscow and our presence will remain a carefully guarded secret.
My husband Sergei is here. He recruited me, and, although it's only been six years, I can't remember what life was like before him. We are a small community of scientists, revolutionaries, and Assassins. There is so much potential here. Our mandate is limitless: Work for the people, find advancements in education, technology, science... Open minds. We are just starting up, and morale is high.
My task is simple: Make a log of our work. Record the future as it happens.
