In Crossbell, Speaker Henry MacDowell represented the Crossbell government alongside Speaker Hartmann in the form of a joint representation. Whereas Speaker Hartmann led the pro-Imperialistic movement within the government, MacDowell maintained Crossbell's neutrality and independence from its suzerains, Erebonia and Calvard.
Even after the assassination attempt by his First Secretary Ernest Reis, Mayor MacDowell displayed a strong sense of responsibility as a politician by immediately resuming his work and the preparation of Crossbell's Anniversary Festival.
At the time Dieter declared the Independent State of Crossbell, MacDowell was being held in Mishelam and therefore unable to voice his opinion. He was rescued by the Special Support Section and immediately declared Crossbell's independence declaration as invalid.
