Digression: Altarion Council Hall



The Council Hall, with its 50 seats, is located in the Imperial Palace that occupies a fairy large territory on planet Anthalanor's surface. Only Altarion councilors and their families are allowed to land, though: they can bring military escort ships with them, but those have to orbit outside the line of planetary defenses.
Emperor Shaix has lived there, alone, since the end of the Taladaar War that marked the end of First Imperial Age. More than 10.000 years in the past, or so they say.

Characters: Helystyal



Full name: Helystyal Elnyara Miirnaju Altan
Nickname: Helyss
Title: Crown Princess of Anthira
Age: 23 standard years
Height: 178 cm
Hair: electric indigo
Eyes: electric indigo

Race: Hybrid Anthiran/Kainal

Daughter of Queen Tyelene of Anthira and prince Shetar of Theitor. Being half-kainal she has the adaptive underwater sight of her father, but lacks the ability to breathe in water. Helyss has an older brother, but was chosen as heir to the throne for a certain reason.
She appears diplomatic, charming and pretty harmless, until one gets to know her. Friendly enough to get along with anyone, but also rather spoiled - you'll never see her wearing the same outfit twice.
Helystyal's also the more classically attractive and romantic of the leading characters.

Characters: Shaix



Title: Galactic Emperor, Taladaar Grand Master
Age: unknown. Allegedly immortal.
Height: usually about 187 cm. Can vary.

Hair: silver
Eyes: silver
Race: amathial (or so he says)


Legend says he comes from the First Planet, Amathial, where the first humanoid race was born. Actually, no one really knows.
Apparently, he's been around for thousands of years. A great scientist and inventor, he discovered the "leys" and built the Shaix Drive, the device that allows fast interstellar travel. Then he founded the Taladaar Order, whose superior knowledge and technology created - and afterwards nearly destroyed - the Empire. Many royal or important families claim to be Shaix's descendants and they are probably right.
He looks like a rather androgynous human male in his twenties, but his appearance is far from unchanging, although no one ever saw him get older. Same legends that credit him with nearly godlike powers, also tell that in the past he used to take the appearance of a paradigmatic individual of the race he was meeting.
For at least some centuries, skepticals spread the rumor that he had been replaced by a hologram after the Taladaar War, when Anthalanor became the new capital and the Imperial Palace was built. Now, many think he's seriously ill, dead or that he never actually existed.
One way or another, Shaix (or his holographic replacement) always showed an amazingly balanced, wise, charismatic and righteous personality.
