Born in 1983, Chi Guozhi was raised as an “Orphan Child” upon the detainship and eventual murder of his Chinese Parents - an act committed through an Elizian National Congress decree. Chi, however, was exempted from Chinese Genocide as he was “Welcomed” into an affluent household. Although Living with his new household throughout his Childhood and Preteens, his life was rather bad - with his non-biological Father locking Chi into the “Cupboard” for his disobedience towards the Elizian National Congress.

Aged 15, Chi Left his adopting household - deeming himself homeless within Inner Kentang. Regardless, Chi stormed on - with the then Teenager managing to gain support from various organisations and Influential Families. Utilising funding provided through Organisations, Chi Managed to flee Elizia and move to Canberra, Australia - where he worked as the Federal Member for Sturts’ (Christopher Pyne) Chief of Staff between 2004 and 2007.

During Chi’s Occupation at the Parliament of Australia, he utilised opportunities given to him to continue his Higher Education Studies - with the Chief of Staff Graduating from his Bachelor of Laws and Economics at the Australian National University. Upon Graduation, Chi Continued to work for the Commonwealth Government of Australia, with the then Chief of Staff “Promoted” to Julie Bishop’s Asian Affairs Advisor- where he worked until his resignation in 2015 due to the Orchid Revolution back in Elizia.

Returning to Elizia on a Diplomatic Passport representing AusAid, Chi had requested to his former boss to appoint him as the new Australian Ambassador of Elizia - with his predecessor murdered during the Revolution. Weeks Later, Bishop Nominated Chi as the new Australian Ambassador to Elizia, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Commending Chi’s work towards the Australian Government and the Elizian Nation as strong.

Upon the Establishment of the Interim Government of Elizia and the new Senate, Chi resigned from his Australian appointment and denounced his duel Australian Citizenship a week later to pursuit politics within the Elizian Federation. Joining the Liberal Democrats, the Backbench Senator “rose” through the ranks for the political organisation, with Chi later being appointed as Chief Whip and the Shadow Sec. of Public Services.

Kevin Katdare's ancestors came to Elizia at the turn of the 20th century as immigrant workers from their native India. His grandfather served in the Royal Elizian Air Force during World War II, and was fiercely pro-British, opposing independence after the war. Not only was Kevin's grandfather loyal to Britain, but he also feared that an independent majority Malay/Muslim Elizia would result in discrimination against the many Indians, Chinese, and Vietnamese who made Elizia their home. On this issue, Kevin's grandfather and father disagreed. Although Kevin's father, Rohan Katdare, also shared a love of Britain, it did not extend to a loyalty, and he considered himself an Elizian first. However, Rohan quickly turned against the new Elizian National Congress Government, for its authoritarian policies and limitation of trade. During the 1960's, Rohan became both a successful merchant in the new middle class, and a prominent and consistent opponent of the regime. As both a member of the opposition party and an ethnic minority, Kevin's family was one of the many targeted in the 1971 Elizian "Red Scare". Over a three year period, not only was the Katdares' business decimated, but Kevin's grandparents, mother, and older brother were among the 70,000 who were slaughtered by the government and its supporters. Kevin and his father only survived thanks to his connections in Britain which allowed them to escape to safety in the nick of time. It was in London where Kevin subsequently grew up. Kevin attended Oxford, becoming the first of his family to attend college. It was there where he met his wife, Divya. From London, Kevin rebuilt his father's business and gained substantial wealth. He funneled a significant amount of it to prominent resistance groups in Elizia, eventually returning there with his wife and son in the late 2000's, joining the Orchid Revolution. Moving back to his hometown, Kevin helped rebuild the city of disproportionately poor Indians, Chinese, and Vietnamese people to the modern middle class bastion of arts and culture that it had been before the 1971 Red Scare. Kevin played a large role in forming the National Council for Democratic Salvation, and used his influence in the West to help direct the attention of the United Nations and western media to the civil war in Elizia. When victory was finally achieved, and parliament was to be elected, Kevin ran as a Liberal Democrat on a platform of opposition to corruption, prosecution of human rights violators, and liberalization of trade.
