Yeah. Cuz my Amban totally got exiled to a region where she won't trouble anyone anymore.

A region that's likely to be heavily militarized and equipped with great infrastructure and could see her making a name for herself again didn't fit with that criteria.

Pretty much, in the short-term the General won't be picky on who's on his side, as long as they're against the Imperium and tying them down elsewhere in the empire's expanse.

Feel like there's a lotta stuff north lol.

Don't know where Betreuen is but like...if there's this General of the North, then there's Vladimir on his icy world on the very fringe of the northern Periphery, there's the uh...the Midnight Hegemony is up in the north somewhere. I think Ely's character is also in the north with his fleet.


Ayerp. I wouldn’t count on the north being too... safe... if things start getting screwy.

that's a shame, who knew that the 2nd most powerful house in the Imperium is too weak, incompetent, and cowardly to prevent the collapse?

Looks like Irene has more balls than Vice Admiral Theo's entire Gilded Navy!

Vice Admiral Theo?

Also, I mean Irene managed to turn around one single planet full of convicts and criminals, it's not like she's prevented any collapse either.

He's referring to my character, though it should be noted that at the start of the RP Theo serves in the Imperial Fleet and not in his House's Gilded Armada

Southwest could potentially put Betreuen in the Sagittarius Arm, maybe in Joachim’s Governorate if you wanted. There is a lot of republican sentiment in that region of space, so could be fertile ground for a potential revolution/rebellion.

That could work but Irene's government is strictly authoritarian in nature so it wouldn't appeal to the republican sentiment. One the other hand, Betreuen would be a good hiding spot for Tau's character to sneak into and ignite a revolution with her help.

Curious, I plan to harbor Tau's character at New Shanghai/Urigrad until the time is ripe to launch another guerilla. Of all the characters in this RP, it seems that they are the most similar in ideology.

But if hiding him somewhere else could maximize the potential of igniting a revolution, then I'd just have Space Lenin sending him supplies (monetary and goods) covertly.

Aight, second and I think last app done. Do tell me if anything doesn't work here and I'll try my best to remedy it.

Name: Etheltryth Líszt
Nickname: The Disgraced Guard
Age: 72
Birth Date: 19.851 IC
Gender: Female
Planet of Origin: Terragrigia
Race/Species: Human (augmented)
Height: 7' / 2,13 m
Weight: 205 lb / 93 kg
Physical Description or Image:
Image

Social Class: Not noble. An orphan of unknown origin that was recruited into the Imperial Guard and attained officer rank within it before being transferred to the Imperial Army.
Titles: Captain of the Imperial Army, Commander of the Imperial Winderzlaf Garrison, Hero of Korall IV, Disgrace of the Imperial Guard
Occupation: Imperial Army Captain, Winderzlaf Supreme Military Commander
Hobbies/Pastimes: Explore, endanger herself, pester the local garrison with ever new, brutal training, generally try to eliminate any perceived weakness...aside from that kinda apathetic.
Talents/Skills: Talented and well educated tactician and strategist, great explorer/adventurer, very good in armed and unarmed combat. Due to augments way stronger than she looks.
Religious Beliefs: God is dead.
Personality: Aloof and seemingly completely apathetic to most things that happen around her and cynical or cruel when she isn't, Líszt does not get along well with the people around her. The few times she actually does she can best be described as an uncaring, at times sadistic creep.
Biography: Etheltryth Líszt was, like most recruits of the Imperial Guard, an orphan, found on the steps to an orphanage in Terragrigia. It would not take long for the Imperial Guard to recruit her from the orphanage and in time she would undergo their harsh training regiment, being shaped and molded into a weapon of the Empire, blindly loyal and almost unthinking.

It was this spark of thinking, this ingenuity and logic that she preserved through her training that made her trainers and supervisors take note of her. It was promising and as such she was enrolled for an officer career early on, quickly proving that her superiors had judged her correctly as she passed tests and exams with flying colours, leaving the academy and properly joining the Imperial Guard as a Lieutenant at the young age of 19 years, serving as a Platoon Vice Commander at the start.

As a member of the Imperial Guard, she was obviously posted to the hottest combat zones the Empire had available...these being primarily rebellions and and pirates, no grand foreign power being around due to the Empire's unrivalled place as the sole ruler of the Milky Way. Still, in spite of these poor odds, Líszt performed admirably during her service, establishing herself as an extremely devoted, extremely skilled warrior and officer in the Imperial Guard and was murmured to be pretty much chosen to be the secret protege of influential members of the Guard. As such she also received plentiful attention and care, including the augmentation of her body, helping her physical strength and endurance as well as better preserving her youth.

But things couldn't sail smoothly forever. In the 35th year of Líszt's life, 19.886 IC, the by now Chief Colonel and commander of an Imperial Guard Division was sent to quell an uprising in one of the Dominai Majora. The reports are hazy yet her troops say that during the fighting, which took almost a year, the Chief Colonel got increasingly paranoid and hectic, culminating in what would essentially end her career. It's not clear how or what exactly happened, but Chief Colonel Líszt ended up summarily executing the head of the noble houses which had suffered the rebellion in the first place, claiming conspiracy, a plot to assassinate the Emperor himself!

Needless to say that this act caused backlash. Despite Líszt being able to provide evidence of such a plot indeed existing, albeit being in its infancy, and a members of Imperial Intelligence and Praetorians confirming her version of events...she had acted out of turn. As a mere Chief Colonel it was not within her authority to make herself judge, jury and executioner like the Praetorians were. She had killed the head of one of the major noble houses and other noble houses took a dislike to it and demanded for her to be put on trial.

The trial, held upon Terra Nova, ended up siding with the enraged nobility for they were correct. What Líszt had done was not within her authority as a Chief Colonel of the Imperial Guard. She did not have to execute the head of a noble house. She could have done quite literally anything, including an arrest as security footage showed the noble quite compliant.

Despite the trial's sentence though, Líszt was still a small hero and still had powerful backers who, while seeing that she was not tenable anymore at the moment, very much intended to keep her in the back of their hand for possible future use. And so her sentence was relatively mild, instead of the execution the nobility demanded, she was merely demoted from Chief Colonel to Captain and kicked out of the Imperial Guard, being transferred to the Imperial Army instead and posted on a small, poor world at the very fringe of the Empire. Out of the way, out of sight and out of mind.

Needless to say that Líszt's world view was shattered. She had done what was in her opinion right and good...and she was punished like that? Her talent thrown away to rot, nay, freeze on this frigid backwater?

She abandoned her Terranist faith, her belief and loyalty in and to the Emperor and the Empire and quickly drowned in self-loathing and apathy over on Winderzlaf. In fact, she got downright suicidal and cruel, putting the people under her command through their paces in rather harsh and brutal ways as well as organizing the most dangerous expeditions she could mount to get a thrill out of it as well as maybe, possibly, hopefully die along the way. Actually killing herself was still something she wasn't ready to do...but getting killed? She could get on board with that.

It was this absolute apathy and lack of care which allowed the Winderzlaf Exploitation Corporation to fester on the planet and then later the PREDI. If Líszt had still been the fanatically loyal Imperial Guard member she used to be...perhaps she would have ended it before it even began growing, with a decisive, surgical strike. But as it was she just watched with a detached curiosity, wondering what her place in the events that were going to unfold would be.

If Great House or a leader of a Faction like a SAS, Colony, Et Cetera
Name of Territory: Imperial Garrison of Winderzlaf
Government: Imperial Planetary Garrison
Capital World: Winderzlaf
Population: 30 million
Economy: Based entirely around the PREDI, which is owns practically every facet of life on the planet but is primarly based on the PREDI's ore mines.
Culture: A very close knit and personal culture, based around the mining profession most people on the planet follow. There's also a very, very low regard for the Empire, its reach not being felt as much here on the nigh lawless fringe...especcially with PREDI rule firmly established. The Imperial Law enforcement on the Planet is usurped by PREDI security which argues that for their employees, corporate guidelines apply first, and after that the Imperial Law. A step they dare not do elsewhere but here, where they have practically every citizen employed, they do.
Social Structure: The PREDI's social structure largely applies to Winderzlaf, due to the world being so completely in the grasp of the PREDI. There are of course other professions than just in the mining business but even the most common miner is highly regarded here, the business being the thing that gave Winderzlaf its relative prosperity in the first place. Most other professions rank below those of the miners, being regarded primarily as being there to serve the mining industry and its workers. Then there is of course the Imperial Military Administration and Military contingent. They exist somewhat outside of the general social hierarchy of Winderzlaf, being still respected and accomodated rather than insulted, kicked and beaten but it is generally quite clear that it isn't regarded all that highly.
Territorial Size:
1x Cheti/Omega Class Planet.
Military and Security Forces:
1x Imperial Army Company...though having gone through a Tanya Degurechaff style training regiment xD
