QI Code

The Queen's Intelligence uses a cipher known as QI Code. The code is a pattern of lines and intersecting dashes. There are four vertical lines with three potential horizontal cross-hatches per vertical line to make up one character or short symbol.

The Queen's Spy Master uses this cipher to transmit messages to his agents. Short messages can be left in plain sight as appropriate in certain circumstances. Messages using the cipher are also used to identify one agent to another when collaborative missions are afoot. Queen Gwenaria Silverstave is aware of the code and can read it fluently.

The Queen's Intelligence agents range all over Octiria to observe, gather information of all kinds, sometimes interfere, and report back to the Spy Master. The QI Code is used in all communication as agents perform their duties.
