The Omen of Majesty: Tales of the Karakan Dynasty
The ancient patriarch of the Xanatov Clan has ruled with an iron hand for nearly three centuries. His body has long since failed him and he has spent most of the last century encased in an arcane life support artifact known as an iron sarcophagus. Over the last two hundred years Nicodemus had worked to diversify his clans holdings from being agricultural land barons on Spectoris to major players in the subsector’s commerce. In the process he has started a feud with the Valloon Dynasty, but the increased wealth and power has been well worth the price.
At the moment Nicodemus is entirely encased in a two meter tall, gold embossed life support suit. He is often only semi-lucid from the pain killing drugs in his system, usually referring to his various family members as grandchildren irregardless of their exact relationship. His mood varies from indulgent to cranky in an eyeblink, but his mind remains brilliant if somewhat addled. He usually travels in a suspensor throne accompanied by cyber mastiffs. A flock of syber eagles act as his eyes and ears, insinuating themselves in whatever he may go.
