Other realities

In the original timeline, US President John F. Kennedy lived past 1963 and became a very inspirational figure of the 1960s. Enemy life-spores infected Kennedy during his second term in office and almost used the psychic energy surrounding him to rewrite Earth's history, but he died of a heart attack in 1967 before that could happen. An agent of the Great Houses erased this timeline by organising his assassination. (PROSE: The Annotated Autopsy of Agent A)
