Welcome aboard, Andrew Bollen.

On the topic of Blue and Green factions . . .

About ten or twelve years ago I asked Gene Wolfe whether there were
Blue/Green style factions in Nessus, in the armiger quarters to the north.
I asked this because as Severian walked up that way he saw people wearing
silks, and the colors were red and yellow, iirc.  This was a sudden riot of
color.  The bringing up of silk had as much connection to Byzantium as the
suggestion of color factions.

In response, Gene Wolfe told me that no, they were not factions; and he did
not have an opinion as to whether the autarch's government had a monopoly
on silk or not.
