Name: Matthew Turing
Age: 26 (born December 1, 1985)
Birthplace: Veritas Study Community, United Kingdom
Family: Matthew was the eldest child of three, having one brother and one sister. His father was an administrator in the Veritas Civil Service, which was responsible for the operation of the study community in the FORGE Trial (that eventually led to the design and establishment of Discoveria); he is now a senior manager in the Utopia Foundation. His mother is a sociology lecturer and author at the National University of Discoveria in Las Veritas. Matthew is single and has no children.
Education: BA(Hons) in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Oxford University; MA in Political Science from the National University of Discoveria
Employment: 2008-present: Employed by the Office of Foreign Affairs: World Assembly Division. As of 2012, he represents the Office of Foreign Affairs (and by extension the government and people of Discoveria) as Discoverian Ambassador to the World Assembly.
Background: Matthew was brought up in the Veritas Study Community, which was established to study liberal representative democracy. His family travelled widely (one of the benefits of having a father involved in the administration of the community was the opportunity to visit other study communities around the world), exposing the young Matthew to life in many different cultures, and fuelling his desire to learn more about politics. At University he was President of the Oxford Union debating society, and was involved in a number of other student societies including the Oxford University Students' Union and Trinity College JCR. After graduation, he moved to the newly established nation of Discoveria and was part of the first cohort of postgraduate students to enter the National University of Discoveria. While at the National University, Matthew was one of the founders of the university's LGBT society as well as the President of the university's Altruist Utopian society.
Politics: Although a keen supporter of the left-wing Discoverian Altruist Utopian Party, Matthew's background and experience of different cultures within the FORGE Trial make him more moderate and worldly than most of the AUP rank-and-file.
Titles: Discoverian Ambassador to the World Assembly (2012-present)
Responsibilities: Liaising with the Discoverian Office of Foreign Affairs: World Assembly Division; representing Discoveria in the debating chambers of the World Assembly.
Interests: Politics, LGBT rights, debating, swimming, diving

Ambassador: Malcador Hesperion XXXI
Image

Age:38
Birthplace: Hesperion Manor, Forguington/Capital Hill
Family: Vat-borne Ghola of Malcador XXI, Adoptive father is also Hermaphrodite 7th Great Grandson Malcador 30th. 3 deceased Siblings.
Education: Educated at the Chapel Forgue psykik Academy age 11-21, recieved apprenticing from a giant Praying Mantis/Wasp man (more common than you think). Educated in Jesse James academy of Law.
Employment: Count-Palatine of Hesperion House. Diplomat to the World Assembly.
Background: Malcador XXXI was born out of desire for Malcador the XXX to have a son, however he was a hermaphrodite and after having many children with himself he did not produce the heir he desired (but did get three children, who died of smallpox). He raised a ghola of his distant ancestor as the 31st Malcador of the name. He was raised by his hermaphrodite father as any normal child would have been. He made good friends and was a cheery child. However he had a deep sense of pride in his psychic abilities, which molded him into what the Mind Empire Psychic elders saw as a perfect example of Lotrabme piety. He has been mentored by the Ancient Master Zhylaw Ballatorbix, Mantis of Most high prestige. Ballatorbix's death was observed by his apprentice and he ascended the steps of the Capital Hill a full master of the psychic school. Since then he has lived a quiet life as a semi-wealthy Count-Palatine (Palatine being codename in our nation for his Paladin Skills.) Malcador has had no children and intends on simply making a ghola of himself to continue the line, or handing things over to his cousins. But not yet. He has become a diplomat thanks to Hyeesha Brown VP and Chancellor of the Senates recognizing his psychic and law school skills. He is constantly on the move between the WA meeting places and the Imperial Capital to observe the laws made.
Fun facts: Adoptive Father was a hermaphrodite (tried impregnating himself, did produce children but all three died young). Technically is a Clone of Malcador the 21st, therefore, Malcador the 30th is both Adoptive father and biological 7th Great Grandson of his own son Malcador the 31st.
Politics: Doesn't Care much, does pretty much whatever the Emperor and the Sage Council tell him too.
Titles: Count Palatine of House Hesperion. Dipomatae Mundus Primus.
Responsibilities: Nil, he doesn't do anything at the World Assembly anymore, While past Diplomats of his house were active voters, He lets the votes slide because they hardly ever affect Lotrabme policy, he sits at home in his palace reveling in leisure most days, and makes diplomatic trips to observe more than to vote.
Interests: Billiards, Swiming, Lawyering, Cloning.
Once said: " Dont you DARE talk about my father that way! Just cuz hes both my mom AND dad means nothing! He was a better parent than yours was."

Staff: Works alone.

The Rt Hon. Ambassador Sexton James Hardcastle

Image


Age: 44 (born 18 July 1968)
Birthplace: Columbus, San Leggera
Family: Three children, all by different women.
Education: High school drop-out; granted 3 honorary doctorates and 5 honorary master's degrees from New Chicago's Buscetta University.
Employment: Sales Assistant at retail superstore until 2005; Ambassador to the WA since.
Background: Hardcastle is a frequent alcoholic, often consuming several bottles of various beers, wines, spirits and whiskeys in a single day. He dropped out of high school in 1983, at the age of 15, when he attempted to start a drug-trafficking company. He was promptly jailed for 3 years, being released at 18 when the drugs he had trafficked were legalised. From his release in 1986 to a second arrest (for drunk driving) in 1990, he was unable to find employment in any form, and began have one night stands constantly, in one year sleeping with over 300 women (and several men, too); fathering three children in the process, with whom he has since had no contact. At one point prior to 2005, he was employed by one of the largest retail superstore's in San Leggera, and promoted to Sales Assistant before being fired in late October 2005. On 7 November of that year, he approached the San Leggeran government for a job, and was immediately granted the position of World Assembly (then UN) Ambassador, being provided with all the drugs and alcohol he could ever need. Rumour has it that he was only given the job because the San Leggeran government has no respect for the World Assembly, joining only to increase the nation's influence.
Fun facts: His office contains no less than 6 cupboards of alcohol bottles.
He owns a mansion in Hamilton, San Leggera, attached to a private bar with 3 cellars of alcohol and another of drugs.
He owns an 'Anti-Gnome™' assault rifle, which he frequently enjoys 'testing' on the WA's workforce of the "stupid motherfucking midgets".
Politics: He agrees wholeheartedly with the policies of San Leggera's current government
Titles: The Right Honourable; Supreme Ambassador to the World Assembly; Chief Officer of the San Leggeran World Assembly Narnian Kaleidoscope.
Responsibilities: Approving and voting for proposals he likes, voting against proposals he doesn't, killing gnomes, drinking alcohol, increasing San Leggera's influence within the World Assembly.
Interests: Alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gnome-killing, partying, TV, R&B music.
Once said: (To Catherine Gratwick) "Hey, would you look at that? That's my 200th gnome kill today; new personal best, baby!"
Staff: Three twenty-year-old 'Hot chicks' who're paid to do whatever they feel like doing; which mostly involves shopping and clubbing.

Name: Mr Jon Douglas Chombers
Age: 38
Born: Falksbrone, South Abacathea
Education: Masters in Criminology, self awarded degree in humanities and self professed superior intelligence.
Employment History:
Born into wealth, initially,
Consult to his highest lordship, HRM Pip,
WA Ambassador for Abacathea.
Background:
Drawing from south Abacathea, Chombers encompasses everything the southern gentleman should, according to him anyway. Known for smoking at least twenty a day and being as sarcastic and dry as the gin he is known to sip, Chombers can often come across short tongued and often quite sharp and brash.
What is known and accepted about him though is his specialist knowledge in criminal law although where his expertise draws from is unknown outside of his Masters in Criminology but his opinions and thoughts of the criminal legislative are widely accepted without question. Needless to say, this has not helped his...modest nature.
Noteworthy:
Always carries twenty smokes in his left pocket and known to speak in what has been compared to a gentlemanly southern drawl.
Loyal to the HRM but bluntly honest, this has allowed him certain leverage on the WA floor outside of his Lordships ever watchful gaze.
Never arrives to the WA without specialized "armed branch" police escort.
Most noteable quote to date:
"You remind me of a terrier Ms Chombers once brought home, while well intentioned, it was yappy, and attention seeking, and if not for the recent animal protection legislation, I would propose dealing with you, as I inevitably did it."

Ambassador- Prince Fias Vannet

Age: 20
Birthplace: Evant Province, Lithonia.
Family: Fias Vannet is the son of the late Lord Andreas Vannet, Jarl of Evant, and Lady Hiera IV Vannet. They were assassinated when Fias was little older than five months old. After their deaths, he was brought up by his uncle Lord Velnarien Vannet II. His uncle was killed in the civil war fought against King Gaberan V, leaving Fias with the title to both the provinces of Evant and Kilorian.
Education: He was educated by both his Uncle and the Prince Trainer, Lord Kien. His training included learning the ancient Evantyrian languages, the languages of the various elf tribes of Lithonia, mathematics, warfare, diplomacy, the new political sciences, lute playing, swordplay, and the Lithonian Scriptures.
Employment: Since he was born into a noble family, he was always destined to become a Nobleman under the Lithonian Kings. However, once the kingship was revoked from King Gaberan V, he was given a double seat in the Noble Lithonian Council. When the Council decided to replace the Kingship with a Council-elected and replaceable Princehood, Fias was almost unanimously chosen to fill the position. As Prince, he controls the Lithonian National Army, the various Enforcers of Peace, and the Ambassadorship.
Background: (will finish)

New Rep John Isidore Cynical3

Postby Lotrabme » Thu Jan 03, 2013 7:34 pm

Name: John Isidore Cynical3
Image

Age:32
Birthplace: Cloning banks, Capital Hill
Family:none
Education: Chapel Forgue Imperial Academy
Employment: Programmed to be a good diplomat and lawyer, Eating.
Background:Was born as many of the lower cast were in the Imperial city, in the cloning banks underground. He was accidentally given a genetic disorder which caused him to grow immense in size. He currently has stopped growing and weighs near 400 lbs. His programming called for him to be a cleric to the Sage Council, this provided him the opportunity to rise in the ranks and get better programing for himself to eventually become Upper Minister to Malcador XXXI. Malcador's innefectual reign as diplomat to the World Assembly was terminated last month, and through the shuffling of his estate and of the offices during the instalment of Lord Adrian, Upper Minister Cynical3 has become the new Assembly representative. He has declared himself to being the true successor to Malcador XXXI, in that he will not do much either.
Fun facts: Cynical3 is his programed surname due to the fact his clone heritage comes from people codenamed Cynical2 and Cynical1, Cynical2 was a news broadcaster until his death 123 years ago and Cynical1 was a political columnist and a comedian 250 years ago. Cynical3 as his name implies, is also rather cynical.
Politics: Doesn't care as his old superior didn't. He does support the rising in power Sage Councilor lord Adrian.
Titles: Upper Minister and World Assembly Diplomat.
Responsibilities: Observing World Assembly meetings and decisions.
Interests: Eating, being cynical.

Name: Unknown, answers to the alias of "Fox"
Age: 24
Born: Capronus, Capital of Abacathea
Employment history:
Current Acathean Armed Response Police personnel.
Currently leading a record breaking career at such a young age. Awarded the Pip Medal for bravery on two instances between the age of 21-22
Joined the Acathean Police at 18,
Promoted to Armed Response at 20
Briefly protected Mrs Chombers, wife to Mr Jon Douglas Chombers, where both showed her the ways of the WA.
WA Assistant Ambassador for Abacathea.
Background:
Known for being a beautiful young woman, it came as quite a shock when she decided to toss her hand to policing, something which she apparently excelled at almost instantly. A brain which absorbs criminal legislation like a sponge, she has rapidly advanced throughout her time in law enforcement. Hailing from the capital city of Capronus and from honest, simple roots, she has become an almost unknown legend within the city. Presumably why she choses to encompass herself behind her alias of fox, to remain modest whilst a known entity.
The force has recognized her abilities so much that time off to attend the WA forum has been extended with ease, so long as if the summit calls on days of which she is working she must be prepared to answer a page as rapidly as possible.
Noteworthy:
(i) Much like her cohort Mr Chombers, Fox can always be found with a packet of smokes present, and smelling of sweet perfumes. (ii)While always dressed very much like a "girly girl" she is the furthest from it, yet manages to always conceal her face during WA interactions, allowing her to blend as a face in the crowd more often than not whilst in the WA halls. Although it is suspected that she may well be attempting to conceal a facial injury. The jury remains out at present.
(iii) To the keen eye, one will always find an unmarked squad car parked in the WA parking lot usually closest to the exit, an agreement permanently in effect between her and the maintenance guy. Nobody knows, what the agreement was, except that it exists.

Postby Eireann Fae » Fri Jan 04, 2013 3:01 pm

Emissary - Epiſkœ¹

Image

Age: 1,390
Birthplace: Veʃwaʒüwin² (The Faerie word for "Island"; is the same place the Humans call Eireann Fae)
Family: Her Hosts³ consisted of two Spirit Faeries and one of the Air element. Ezüla, the younger of the Spirit Faeries at the time, is Epiſkœ's only surviving Host (and is the current Overseer of the Community).
Education: Faeries lack a formal education system. Being a Spirit Faerie, though, Epiſkœ sees the spiritual auras of other living beings as naturally as Humans see visible Light (indeed, Faeries cannot see the visible spectrum). She has learned, as have all her kind, to interpret the spirit energy of various life forms. In the beginning, this consisted mostly of the local flora and fauna of Veʃwaʒüwin. Within the past several centuries, however, the Faeries have started taking in Human refugees, and as such, learned to read their auras as well. Even more recently, the Faeries have begun actively seeking out distant civilisations and species, and the Spirit Faeries, including Epiſkœ, have adapted accordingly.
Employment: Epiſkœ was among the first Faeries to learn to read Human auras. As such, it has long been her responsibility to interact with the beings, and so she has been a diplomat for about as long as there have been Humans on Veʃwaʒüwin. Before the coming of Humans, Faerie civilisation had little structure, and the creatures simply did as they pleased (which, for Spirit Faeries, typically involved soothing the savage beasts and healing spiritual wounds).
Politics: All Faeries are intrinsically bound to Nature, and as such, Epiſkœ sees protecting the environment as her first and foremost duty in her interaction amongst Humans. Being a Spirit Faerie, she also has a particular interest in reducing the pain and strife that Humans tend to inflict on others, and takes a notably pacifist approach when possible.
Titles: Fenhawilzœʒü (Emissary) is her proper title, but she also accepts Fenhawilzœ (Ambassador).
Responsibilities: Emissary is the highest ranking Ambassador amongst the Faeries, and as such the one holding the title is sent on the most important diplomatic missions. For now, the Emissary's place is in the World Assembly.
Interests: Nature, peace, strong mead.
Once Said: "Fe-melʒüʃin melʃin'|i bak efœ'þelövnü? Þelövzœ fe'œöpanilʃin?⁴"
Staff: Faeries speak only their own language, and as such she employs a translator, Rowan.

¹ Pronounced ee-piss-key
² Pronounced vesh-wah-zhu-win
³ Faeries reproduce when anywhere between one and four Faeries (called Hosts) come together in a particular manner and combine their Spirit Energies.
⁴ Translation: Does the idiot not know we discussed this thing already? Does he not even see the discussion?


Translator - Rowan

Image

Age: 12
Birthplace: One of the few Humans born on the island, she is native to Eireann Fae.
Family: Her father was never known, and her mother was killed in childbirth. Rowan has been raised by a care-giver, Mary Jane, and her employer, Epiſkœ
Education: No formal education exists on Eireann Fae, and parents and their children are generally allowed to let the latter study what they like. In this case, Rowan grew up studying languages. She is currently fluent in over a dozen of them, including Fae, Gaelige, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Esperanto, Russian, German, Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Latin. She is currently studying Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi.
Employment: A precocious polyglot, Rowan spent her earliest years teaching recent immigrants to Eireann Fae the language of the Faeries. Her talent was noticed by the leading Ambassador to the nation, known as an Emissary, and at the age of ten was taken on as Translator for the Emissary. Their first assignment together was to the World Assembly, and except for a brief period where Eireann Fae withdrew from the Assembly in protest, there they have stayed.
Politics: Like most Fae, Rowan cherishes personal freedom above all else. She is known as a champion of free speech, bodily autonomy, and a strong disliking for violence, particularly when it comes to the military. She almost always treats others with respect, even enemies, believing that kindness is key to good diplomacy.
Titles: Translator, Ambassador (unofficial, but the Emissary doesn't mind)
Responsibilities: Officially, she is merely supposed to translate the Emissary's softly whispered words for the General Assembly. Unofficially, she has personally taken an active role in many debates, but always with the full support of her employer.
Interests: Languages, obviously. The girl is also known to play games hacked onto a device known as a Codex (which was merely designed to store and display text of previously passed resolutions, available at the WAHQ Gift Shop for $24.99). She is probably the youngest patron to frequent the Stranger's Bar, and has a fondness for so-called Green Vespers; a drink comprised of absinthe, gin, and vodka, with a twist of lime.
Once said: "And, uh, sorry about the stabbing thing. Politics, you know."
Staff: Serves the Emissary of Eireann Fae.

(OOC: Image of Rowan subject to change. I'd prefer a longer dress, but it's hard to find such images...)


Ambassador - Melöʃina¹
Age: 329
Birthplace: Veʃwaʒüwin
Family: Born to only one host, Milþiköpa (current Minister of Diplomacy amongst the Faeries)
Education: Being a Water Faerie, most of her informal education was learning to control that element. While she is not yet powerful enough to call the rains or change the tide, she can draw moisture from the air and control the liquid element to a limited extent. She has n particular diplomatic training.
Employment: For most of her life, Melöʃina was content to practice her skills in controlling water. A couple of years ago, however, Eireann Fae pulled out of the World Assembly, but Milþiköpa wished to maintain a limited presence here. Alexandra was the most qualified Human (and it helped that Rowan recommended her for the job), and the girl personally requested that her friend Mel come along. Despite her lack of previous diplomatic experience, Melöʃina thought it sounded like fun, and Milþiköpa did not mind, as the role of Ambassador to the World Assembly was a mere formality at this point, anyway. Once Eireann Fae rejoined the Assembly, Alex and Mel stayed on with Epiſkœ and Rowan for a little while, but then went off on other diplomatic assignments. They are currently unengaged.
Politics: She cares very much for the sanctity of the environment, but that is as far as her political opinions go. She is not a real diplomat, and while she has fun interacting with Humans, she has no particular interest in their political ideals.
Titles: Fenhawilzœ (Ambassador)
Responsibilities: Mostly keeping Alexandra out of trouble, though she is occasionally amused by the girl's antics and lets her get away with more than she probably should.
Interests: Water, playing with Humans, dancing
Once Said: "Œfœ'|i fesölköʃœnöʒü?²"
Staff: Her translator, Alexandra

¹ Pronounced mel-oh-shih-nah
² Translation: Are you neurotic? (Also, spelling fixed to represent the current Faerie alphabet.)


Translator - Alexandra

Image

Age: 16
Birthplace: Unknown
Family: Unknown, but considers Rowan a little sister
Education: Was taken from her parents at a young age and forced to serve in her home nation's military, beginning training at age 10. At age 12, she broke from the ranks, destroyed a barracks, and fled to Eireann Fae, known as safe harbour for refugees. There she learned the local language and how to hunt and fish.
Employment: Age 10-12 she was in the military, from 12-14 she gathered food for the Community. A few weeks shy of her fifteenth birthday, Eireann Fae withdrew from the General Assembly, and the current Translator, Rowan, recommended Alexandra to take her place in the new WA Mission. Now that Eireann Fae is back in the WA, Alex serves as a translator in other diplomatic arenas, most recently in the war-torn nation of Saurisia, from which she barely escaped.
Politics: She also champions personal freedom, but is quite a bit less shy than Rowan about expressing her viewpoints. Not raised to treat anyone but her superiors with respect (and having later rebelled against those superiors), Alexandra is known for delivering her very strong opinions with a sharp tongue. She generally treats others with contempt until they earn her respect. Given her history, the girl is also a lot more outspoken against the military; particularly when it comes to conscription.
Titles: Translator, Ambassador, Bitch.
Responsibilities: Almost always acts as a translator for Meloshina, but has occasionally done special "assignments" for Eireann Fae's diplomatic corps (such as helping refugees flee their native lands to come to Eireann Fae). There are few military-trained citizens of the Community, and Alexandra is always glad to provide her unique talents as necessary for the good of the Fae, and the world at large.
Interests: Is known to be a connoisseur of fine marijuana (and occasionally cocaine, when she is hanging out with Eduard Heir). She also plays guitar, and has appeared twice in the WorldVision series of concerts.
Once said: "So because you have an invisible friend in the sky and I don't, you're allowed to object to military service and I can't? Fuck that noise..."
Staff: Either runs solo or with Ambassador Meloshina

If you're talking to me, it's a Faerie. I have no unicode input at the moment (curse you, KDE...) so I can't type the proper characters for her name or origin or anything. Also, some players here get a bit tetchy when High Fantasy is brought up, and I don't think anybody's actually even acknowledged Epiſkœ (copy/paste pain in my arse) anywhere outside the Stranger's Bar :p

Perhaps I'll log in to a vanilla e16 session later and hammer out another entry in the above post. Not right this moment though, as I just woke up and am just checking NS before makin' pancakes :)

Done. Had to install gnome to get the unicode input. Something seems to have broken e16 (I blame KDE -_-).

At least now I'll be able to reference the Emissary by name, and even have her speak on occasion! :p

Responsibilities: Living on the floor and weighing in on virtually everything.

I do not see a link.

As to the rest of you, critical updates sorted, including a new section for ambassadors of ceased nations, who we can only assume are in a state of suspended animation until their respective superiors come back and issue new instructions to them.

As Derek was booted upstairs, I have a new ambassador to register.

Ambassador - Désirée "Desi" O'Shaughnessy

[NSWiki entry]

Image

Age: 28

Birthplace: Martumba, Solace

Family: Her father, Christopher O'Shaughnessy, is a prominent Siroci social activist, while her mother, Justine Gutierrez, is a solicitor with the Mirano-Solaci Recognition Movement. Additionally, her paternal aunt was the late Rihanna O'Shaughnessy, who lead the Commissariat of Law, Justice and Human Rights from 1966 until her death in 1980.

Biography: The only child in her family, Desi was born in 1985 in Martumba, a harbour city in the autonomous community of Solace in southwestern Ossitania. Her parents married in 1983 and divorced in 1988, when Desi was just three years old. Her father returned to his city of birth, Clockmore, while she stayed with her mother in Martumba. Unsurprisingly, Desi developed strong political feelings while growing up in the midst of the campaign for recognition of the Mirano-Solaci minority in Ossitania.

At the age of 18, Desi enrolled in Hope City University, where she received her Bachelor of Civil Law. However, by the time she was qualified, Desi had turned away from following her mother into the Mirano-Solaci Recognition Movement and switched to international law for her master's degree, which she completed at the University of Quatress. She was offered a job with the Diplomatic Corps upon receiving her master's and became the Secretary to the Ambassador to Urgench.

Desi spent a year at this post before being promoted to Ambassador to Urgench, a position she occupied for a further three years, until she was given an unexpected promotion to Deputy Ambassador General by her superior, Ambassador General Derek McGregor. She occupied this post for just a year before it was abolished, but received sufficient warning of its abolition to contest the 2012 general election, where she was elected as an MP for Solace and appointed to the new portfolio of Junior Minister for WA Affairs.

Politics: Desi is a moderate International Federalist and a supporter of greater regional autonomy within Ossitania. She is a democratic socialist and supports mixed economies with a prominent social conscience. In stark contrast to her predecessor, Desi is a devout practitioner of Ossitanian Komodoism, though she likes to keep her religion and her politics separate.

Titles: Current: Junior Minister for WA Affairs (2013-present); Former (from most recent): Deputy Ambassador General of the Diplomatic Corps of Ossitania (2012-2013), Ambassador to Urgench (2009-2012), Secretary of the Ambassador to Urgench (2008-2009)

Responsibilities: The Junior Minister for WA Affairs' duties are the advancement of Ossitania's international policy objectives through the proposition and opposition of legislation in the World Assembly.

Interests: Desi likes to take a load off by playing video games in her office. She also has a strong interest in Miranian literature.

Ambassador - Sir John Ross "J.R." Ewing II, Bt KG KH

Image

Age: 73
Birthplace: Freehold, Monmouthshire, East Jersey
Family: Two brothers, one half-brother, several ex-wives, a number of legitimate and illegitimate children. None of whom are on speaking terms with him...
Education: Learned everything he needed to know from his father and Machiavelli.
Employment: Caesarean Army (1958-62); Mercer Automotive Corporation (1962-2007)
Background: His father, Sir John Ross "Jock" Ewing, bought the struggling Mercer Automotive Corporation in the early 1930s and proceeded to turn it into a profitable company, serving as chairman of the board until his death in 1980. The younger Ewing was raised from a young age to succeed his father as a businessman, and was taught every dirty trick in the book in order to make him able to succeed. After serving his mandatory time in the Caesarean Army, J.R. went to work at his father's company, rising through the managerial ranks to the Board of Directors. Following Jock Ewing's death, the shares of Mercer Automotive were evenly split between Jock's four sons, who locked themselves in a power struggle for control of the company over the next 27 years, which ended only with J.R.'s retirement. Following a short retirement, J.R. was appointed Ambassador to the World Assembly due to his people skills.
Fun facts: Psychopathic. Survived several murder attempts.
Politics: Whatever benefits J.R.
Titles: 2nd Baronet Ewing; Knight of the Order of the Golden Crocodile; Knight of the Order of St. Helier; CEO, Mercer Automotive Corporation (1978-2007 [intermittent])

•Name: Dirk Pittance
•Age: 35
•Birthplace: Penny Lane, Ummagumma
•Education: University of Bonny: M.A. Political Science, M.A. History, M.A. Linguistics, M.A. Sociology
•Past Employment: Commodore in Ummagamman Coast Guard
•Military Career: Military Observer during Munisha War
•Titles: Commodore, Honourable, answers to “Hey You!”
•Hobbies: eye patch fashion wear, walks along the beach, long counseling sessions


Image

Background: Dirk Pittance was the second born son of his family, which as a middle child left him a bit messed up. Just ask his psychiatrist and he’ll mention how he credits his work with Mister Pittance for a number of his best papers.

After attending university for a substantial period of time, but not learning how to stay in university indefinitely, Dirk tried to put what he had learned into practice in the real world, but failed miserably. Afterwards, he saw an ad stapled to a job board about the new Ummagumma Coast Guard and thoroughly ignored it, after seeing an attractive woman walk into the job centre. After Dirk noted that she stood in front of the coast guard ad and wrote down the contact information, then and there he decided that if he were on a boat with that attractive woman he just might have a shot with her, if there was nobody else more desirable on board.

During his coast guard training, Dirk Pittance was severely injured and went on disability for some time, so the attractive woman in his class spent a lot of time on a boat with other people. While there has been some speculation as to the cause of the injury, official reports note that while on leave, Dirk was attending a Rocky Horror Picture Show showing, where he was treated by paramedics, after being hit in the eye by a stray piece of toast. He was later sent to a hospital ship for surgery, which was unsuccessful, but they got him a really spiffy eye patch to make up for it.

After coming off of disability and extensive counseling, from his injury, Dirk Pittance was sent to war ravaged Munisha as a military observer. The other people in the coast guard didn’t want to go, because they enjoyed the company of other attractive people on board their ships, and didn’t want Dirk messing up the good thing they had going, by being a stick in the mud. To ensure he would be taken seriously by the international community, he was promoted to Commodore and given a snappy uniform to wear. After the Munisha War, he managed to hitch a ride home with one of the other navies, one with actual warships. Upon his return from Munisha, Dirk Pittance received a hero’s welcome, after which he went on immediate disability again for PTSD.

After several years of counseling, Dirk Pittance was ready to resume his duties with the Ummagumma Coast Guard. His superiors immediately suggested him as the new ambassador to the World Assembly, citing the fact that they couldn’t live in a world where they wouldn’t share such a 'special snowflake' with the rest of the world.

Memorable Quote: "That’s not what he meant by toast? Argh, my eye! My eye!"

Ambassador - Princess Rana Amina bint al-Hashemi al-Faisal
"Short name" - Princess Rana is acceptable

Image

Age:
30
Birthplace: Basrah, al-Iraq province
Family: Princess Rana is a member of the Royal Family of al-Faisal, daughter of one of the King's youngest brothers, Prince Ahmad. She has many brothers and sisters, and even more cousins. She is very close to her cousins Princesses Ruya and Yasmin, daughters of her uncle Prince Rashid. The three attended university together and were inseparable. Her uncle is Head of State for the republic, King Faisal bin Ali al-Hashemi al-Faisal. Reportedly Rana is close to the King, who respects her intelligence and interests in foreigners.
Education: Baghdad University (MA Hons in International Studies and English)
Employment: Since graduation she has been employed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Background: Born into the one of the main branches of the al-Faisal based Banu Hashim family, Rana wanted for nothing as a child. Like her siblings and contemporaries she was presented with the finest tutoring money could buy. Often she went with family trips around the world, visiting both natural and man-made wonders, yachting, hiking, and meeting with the envoys of foreign nations. It was the latter, combined with a developed love of traveling, that began to steer the young princess along her current chosen path. With several family members well ahead in the line of succession, she was relatively free to pursue her own dreams and talents (provided they did not clash with the interests of the Royal Family or the Republic, naturally). Thus, Princess Rana has spent a considerable amount of time at university and surreptitiously accompanying Foreign Affairs missions overseas. She has been married once, to an officer in the elite Golden Lion Division. However he was killed in a car accident after only a short while of marriage. There were no children. And so while still eligible and highly sought after, the young princess has decided to drive on with her career for now and successfully petitioned for the opportunity to serve as Ambassador to the World Assembly.
Politics: Member of the Ba'ath Party. Believes in Arab Socialism.
Titles: Current: Ambassador to the World Assembly, Princess.
Responsibilities: Varying. Acts as the Ambassador to the World Assembly and head of that diplomatic mission, and has been known to act as a special envoy for the Royal Family.
Interests: Skiing, yachting, visiting museums of varying types, shooting, horse-riding, etc.
Once said: "Royalty has a responsibility to its people. Tribes are an extension of family, and the nation an extension of tribes."

Staff: She has several assistants, two handmaidens, and a personal bodyguard from the Golden Lion Division.

Updated. Please, from now, on, when you provide info on an ambassador with 15 names (and/or titles/initials), include a short form of your ambassador's name. That would be much appreciated. For instance, I've shortened Princess Rana Amina bint al-Hashemi al-Faisal to simply "Princess Rana," and Sir John Ross "J.R." Ewing, Jr., Bt KG KH to "'J.R.' Ewing," but I have no idea if those are the correct/preferred short forms of those names.
