Good sir, whose powers are these?

Streaming out of the clear pyramid of the Louvre were 6 men in fatigues, carrying rifles. They then stood guard at the traffic circle, seemingly directing people away. I assume they were French soldiers but I can’t be sure as I don’t generally recognize one brand of military from another.

I can’t imagine going up to one of them and asking a question like this. They create such a strong air of unapproachability.

But if I DID make such an inquiry, I quite like this way of doing it…seeing soldiers as someone’s (or somewhere’s) powers. As if they had the ability to turn invisible or something. But of course having a whole flock of soldiers at your disposal is probably very like having a super power. A dark one, surely. But a super power, none the less.
