Koryphaios

Koryphias is the Greek word for chorus, which originated from the Greek tragic drama. The role of the Chorus was primarily three-fold: summarize what the audience had just seen and heard; comment on major themes; and/or become an extension of the audience and react to what transpires on stage, which usually resulted in the audience following the lead. The Chorus, then, was paramount to the play and the playwright because it was the vehicle to disseminate the message the playwright intended the audience to learn and believe.

My role at Lyssa Strada is a simile of the original Chorus, commenting on major themes, being a conscience of this time.
