Biography: Bobby, as he’s known to everyone except his wife who likes the sound of Robin, spent his childhood getting into all manner of scrapes with his best friend, Vincent Blue.  As he grew older and his father became a war hero and his elder sister became a champion fencer, he started to resent their success and became determined to make a name for himself instead of being in their shadow.

He was already a talented loothin player with a very pleasant singing voice, but his inherently lazy nature kept him from doing the work necessary to perfect his craft, as did his single-minded focus on pursuing every attractive young woman he saw.  Especially the ones who were known to put out on the first date.

By the time he was fifteen, he was starting to hang out with a rougher crowd and get in minor trouble with the local law enforcement — which takes some doing on Sweytz.  His father tried to convince him to straighten up and do something productive, such as following in his footsteps and joining the Defence Force, the Kavaliros having quite a long tradition of serving either their faith or their planet.  This chafed young Bobby who saw his father’s well-intentioned advice as trying to push him into something he wasn’t interested in.  Lacking in self-confidence and looking for an easy way to become someone important, Bobby was easily conned by the Anerix High Chancellor’s rhetoric.

At fifteen and a half, after his parents refused to sign the immigration papers, he tried to punch his father, ran away from home, insulted his girlfriend so badly when she wouldn’t join him that they didn’t speak for nearly thirty years, insulted his best friend so badly when he wouldn’t join him that they ended up in a fight that might’ve proved fatal for Bobby had his friend’s father not intervened, and then lied about his age so he could immigrate without parental permission, all in less than a day.

Once on Anerix, he discovered very quickly that the only thing he was qualified for that paid even remotely decently was the Army.  He served as a infantryman for a couple of years, until he irritated his commanding officer one too many times and found himself ‘volunteered’ for the High Chancellor’s Bodyguard.

The High Chancellor’s Bodyguard is actually Anerix’s assassin squad.

Little did anyone suspect at the time that one of the assassin trainers was actually an undercover member of the Sweytian Defense Force Special Forces, Kenshin Kenodori.  Kenshin had briefly served under Bobby’s father during the Second Mugdaran War and took a special interest in the young man, who was by now clearly disillusioned with Anerix.  Luckily, Bobby was naturally a gifted martial artist — there are some who suspect the Kavaliros of old practiced selective breeding since so many are naturally talented martial artists — so Kenshin, who was a ninja master, had an excuse for giving him private lessons.  During those private lessons, Kenshin got to know Bobby better, and eventually he invited him to come visit his home for some specialized training.  Bobby eagerly accepted.

During that trip, Kenshin recruited Bobby into his family’s ninja clan.  During his ninja training, Kenshin recruited Bobby as a spy for the Sweytian Defense Force.

Bobby was considered a valuable asset by both of his employers for the next few years.  Then he had a serious misunderstanding with a member of High Command who he was — depending on which one you ask — either dating or casually having sex with, and she made it her purpose in life to ruin his.  Rather soon after this, Kenshin’s spying was discovered.  Bobby was ordered to kill him to prove his own loyalty.  Instead, he helped him escape.  He claimed to the High Chancellor that Kenshin was just too good for him to kill.  No one in High Command really believed it.  Bobby suddenly found himself suspected every time there was a security leak and assigned all of the most dangerous missions.

During a much overdue vacation, he met Karen Thase, a physical therapist originally from Moulei, but now living on Sweytz.  She was very unlike the vrisks he’d been having shallow relationships with for years.  By the end of the vacation, he was pretty sure he was in love for the first time since the girlfriend he’d wronged when he left Sweytz.

Their relationship deepened as more of High Command became convinced he was a traitor.  Finally, fearing for Karen’s safety, he left the Anerix Army.

Back on Sweytz, he reconciled with his family and his best friend, and reconnected with Kenshin who’d retired from the military and opened a dojo.  Determined to keep out of trouble, he started working at Kenshin’s dojo and, with his brother-in-law, Viktor Blue, opened The Sword & Scroll Tavern, playing loothin and singing in The Band Without A Clever Name.  The tavern and the band both quickly gained local fame which spread rapidly thanks to the number of spacers from the nearby ‘port who dropped by, looking for something nicer than the bars nearer the ‘port.

Bobby and Karen married and had two children, Cassie and Char, then he, for reasons that even he isn’t quite sure of, suddenly decided that it was time to do more for Sweytz.  He joined the Defense Force and was quickly recruited into the Special Forces.  The discipline problems he’d had in the Anerix Army didn’t completely disappear, but the worst thing he ever did — punching a mithoska — only got him busted a rank as the mithoska in question was trying to provoke him.

He and Karen had two more children, Ben and Melissa, and everything in his life was going well for years.

Then his eldest got old enough to date and he took the overprotective father thing too far.  Before things had gotten too bad between he and Cassie, he was severly injured on a mission and very nearly died, his heart stopping three times while he was on the operating table.  His recovery took a bit longer than it should have because he refused to obey the limits the doctors put on his physical activity.

Stuck at home and seeing his children every day, he grew very close to Melissa, who wasn’t quite five, and succeeded in almost alienating Cassie, who by now was nearing fifteen.  Every single outfit she wore, every single thing she did, he was sure was going to lead to her being taken advantage of by a young man.  He thought every young man thought like he had at that age.  These problems with his eldest led to problems with his wife, so once he was well enough to return to active duty, having turned down a medical retirement, he volunteered for every mission he could, finding home an unpleasant place to be.  This, naturally, led to worsening relationships with his wife and children, except Melissa, as he made sure to never miss anything important in her life if he could help it.

When he wasn’t on a mission, he started drinking heavily, partially as a way to self-medicate insomnia which had plagued him for years.  On missions, he started feeling like he needed to prove himself, his old lack of confidence plaguing him again now that he was older and younger men were undeniably performing better than him.  This resulted in him taking chances he shouldn’t have taken and getting injured many times.

Finally, after a mission where he’d been severely stabbed in the elbow and left with it permanently affected somewhat, followed by one where he’d gotten shot next to the heart, Karen had had all she could stand and broke down crying when he said the doctor cleared him to return to full duty.  Affected by her tears, and his youngest’s comment that “And you’ll get to see me grow up if you retire, so you’ll know me better than you do Cassie, so maybe we won’t fight so much”, he retired only seven years after his father.

Cassie and he were barely on speaking terms by then, as he’d offended her a great deal when she became a leytgelez, as he was apparently incapable of comprehending the difference between a leytgelez and the whores he’d hired between girlfriends in his youth.  Char didn’t much care for him as he’d not been supporting her burgeoning athletic career much.  Ben tried to just stay out of the way of the family’s fighting and blamed Bobby for it.  So by this point, his youngest daughter was the only member of his family who he had a good relationship with.

During the early days of his retirement, boredom led to him drinking heavier and getting in some minor scrapes with the law, usually dragging Vincent into them as he always had.  Finally Karen had had enough and forbade him leaving the house without adult supervision — with their seven year old counting as adult supervision.

A few korvare later, his drinking now worse than ever, he said some very stupid things to Sal and Lori when their relationship started.  The young lovers didn’t notice.  He ended up pissing Vincent off severely.  Vincent’s husband, usually a rather calm man, got so aggravated when Bobby repeatedly failed to comprehend why Vincent was so upset that he punched Bobby, leaving quite a bruise.

When Bobby got home that night, Karen demanded to know what happened.  Then he proceeded to, in the course of the conversation, insult all of his children and their significant others, except, of course, Melissa.

Karen ordered him to call Vincent and apologize for what he’d said. In the course of that conversation, Vincent told Karen how much Bobby had been drinking lately, knowing that Bobby’d been lying to her about it. As Vincent had had a drinking problem himself in the past, he recognized what Bobby was going through and had been trying to get him to quit or at least cut back for a while. While Karen was fussing at Bobby, Melissa came in the room and said the words that very nearly damned her father to spending the rest of his life alone: “I didn’t tell her, Daddy! I swear! It’s still our secret!”

Karen had put up with a lot from Bobby, but convincing their daughter that lying about how much he drank was no different that not telling her when he’d sneak her cookies and such before dinner was almost too much.  She was very close to kicking him out and cutting off all contact with him.  This possibility sobered him up very quickly.

As Karen did still love him, she pretended he’d been too drunk to know what he’d said that night and gave him a second chance. She called Kenshin, as he was the only person who’d ever had much luck getting Bobby to see reason when he was at his most stubborn, who immediately rehired Bobby at the dojo.

Bobby tried to turn his life around, but his ego was thoroughly trounced by how close he’d come to throwing away everything that mattered to him and how horrible his relationships with his oldest children were. The once cocky man now said things like “Of course I’m wrong. I’ve never done anything right in my life” and meant it. His ego bounced back a bit as his youngest, who was already quite a martial artist, took up competing more seriously and he was able to have a connection with her he’d not had with any of his other children.

He had surgery on his damaged elbow shortly before the birth of his first grandchild and the restored range of motion helped his mood, as did the arrival of his granddaughter.

During a trip to Zeiper to buy brandy for the bar, he and Viktor ended up forced by circumstances beyond their control to fight to save the world. Bobby proved to still be quite a fighter, though he discovered that he’d grown a bit too used to sleeping in his own bed every night and could barely sleep on the floor of the hut they were staying in.

He made a diligent effort to improve his relationships with his children and, on the advice of his eldest, he started seeing a psychiatrist last year. She’s helped him quite a bit, getting him to see that he hasn’t been a total screw-up his whole life. At her suggestion, he got back in touch with his old girlfriend, now a widow, and finally apologized to her. They quickly became friends again.

After some korvare, he realized he still had some feelings for her and asked Karen’s permission to open their marriage. Proving that he has finally grown up, he first asked Kenshin for advice on how to phrase his request, being fairly sure that the first way that came to mind would’ve upset Karen greatly, and then when Karen was hurt that he even asked, comforted her and took her out dancing and to dinner at a nice restaurant to let her know that he was still madly in love with her.

A few korvare later, one of his colleagues from his days as an assassin, now in charge of Anerix’s children’s martial arts’ team, tried to recruit Bobby’s youngest. The two men very nearly got into a fight. The man then tried to get Melissa disqualified, unsuccessfully.

This was just the beginning of an obsession with using her to hurt Bobby. The next tournament both teams were at, one of the Anerix coaches attempted to poison Bobby’s daughter. The other ninja master with Bobby physically restrained him so the law could deal with the would-be poisoner, as Bobby would’ve killed the man and been spaced for it under that planet’s laws.

Less than a korva later, some of the man’s friends attacked the dojo. This was not a wise move on their part.

And then, a few sulida later, the man himself broke into Bobby’s house one night and, pointing a blaster at Karen, told Bobby to hand over his daughter, or he’d fire. Karen ended up killing the man herself, which left her rather shaken. And left Bobby very firmly convinced that he never, ever wanted to piss his wife off again.

Presently, Bobby’s life is rather boring. After the excitement of the last few korvare, he’s glad for the break. He’s spending what time he’s not working at the dojo or tavern spoiling his grandchildren. He was even able to calmly accept his 15-year-old son’s engagement to the 13-year-old daughter of one of his fellow ninja.


Lemyrkûns are a populous species on Radthel, the principal continent of Sweytz’ northern hemisphere. The creatures are one of that planets five known proto-sentient races exhibiting a remarkable, if rather childlike, intellect.

The creature is found throughout the northern hemisphere and on the largest southern continent, though in minuscule proportions with respect to those found on Radthel. While classed proto-sentient by most xenobiologists of the tri-galaxies it should be noted that none of them believe the species will ever become the principle native intelligence. The reason for this is simply the lemyrkûn’s utter lack of interest in making tools or doing more in life than playing and gathering nuts. Though it should be noted that they would be remarkably easy to elevate as they show great thoughtfulness, keen memory, as well as a remarkable aptitude and enthusiasm for any tools they are given.

Wild lemyrkûns are very fond of people and seem to take a great pleasure in showing off for admiring audiences, and so they are found frequently near homes, villages, and cities playing in trees and among rooftops.

The creature itself is a hermaphrodite, as are so many of Sweytz’ native animal life, and is marsupial. They feed entirely on seeds and nuts, and go dormant during cold seasons, though if one is kept as a pet in a warm home or warm climate they do not seem to require hibernation, but become comparatively more lethargic and sleep longer hours during the winter korvare. They are approximately a yard long from head to tail when fully mature, and have been described by many Terrans as a mad scientist blending a flying squirrel, a raccoon, and the speaker’s choice of various monkeys or a lemur. This is a reasonable description of the creature, though those who are familiar with the Kûndthêk of Glarosd would say it is a tiny one of them, hence the name which is an Oplitti construction for “Tiny Kûn”. It should be noted, however, that the lemyrkûn is in no discernible way related to the Kûndthêk race, and utterly lacks in their ferocity or strictly piscivore diet.

Due to their fun loving, gentle, and bright nature they were quickly adopted as pets among the early Sweytzian settlers and have remained one of the top ten favourite pets of the people of that system since its founding, and is always of the top five native species pets.

The lemyrkûn evolved from a primarily nocturnal species and is still mostly so in habits, though like the cats of Earth they are found active at all points of a day, and seem to sleep in naps of myriad length as needed. They do have large eyes, and seem to posses a very finely tuned echolocative capacity, studies show them able to locate grass seeds in perfect darkness with no apparent difficulties. They do not converse in the ultrasonic, however, instead reserving communications for trills, “merps” and “meeps” in a high pitched, but firmly human audible range – for reference to approximations of their vocalisations in pitch, tone, and essential sound observe young Terran kittens, or the adult stage of the Flendessu oplkite.

They are exceedingly clean animals who can usually be shown how to use various toilet facilities, or if one has a stubborn individual or an incompatible facility for their needs a litter-box will nearly always suffice, though most owners in this situation prefer to teach their pet how to use the door to go outside – the wiser installing a special door for the pet to use as it can be lightly difficult to convince then to remember to close the door afterwards and it makes it near impossible (even compared to normal) to get the curious little thing to stay out of (or in) a room.

As a proto-sentient they are banned for export from Sweytz, though some concession is made to allow citizens of the system not on the primary planet to keep the creatures, and family pets may be taken off-world by their owners. As a result the lemyrkûn has not spread much beyond the near region as a pet, nor are many outside the Sweytzian Alliance familiar with them.

Also their status as semi-intelligent does make the terms ‘pet’ and ‘owner’ slightly inaccurate. The creatures are adopted by families or an individual, but the lemyrkûn must also accept the family willingly. It should be noted that little direct enforcement of this ever occurs as it is seen as foolish in the extreme to try to take a lemyrkûn against its will. They are highly mischievous and playful at the best of times, they can become hellish dæmons of destruction and chaos until they escape or are set free if they’re unhappy. This also discourages ill treatment by those possessing one in their home who still wish to actually have a home. Treated well they are incredibly loyal, will assist (in their own way, which may or may not be actually helpful) with caring for small children, will defend their home from intruders by means of thrown objects – many a valuable heirloom vase has been save from theft by being hurled and shattered against the skull of a would-be burglar. Some even manage to teach their lemyrkûn household chores.

It is a rare home that has more than one, maybe two, lemyrkûns living in it. This is not because they fight. Rather it is for entirely the opposite reason: they’d PLAY. Those who raise lemyrkûns tend to have a home made of very sturdy materials that their hordes live in (horde being the best translation of the official Sweytzian word for a group of lemyrkûns, floghe, which is derived from flogkä – the word for a several of a kind of dæmonic spirit. Unofficially most Sweytzians just say group, bunch or some other generic plural) separate from the keeper’s own home.

Sweytzian Alliance

The Sweytzian Alliance is comprised of twelve star systems in the Milky Way and four in Galfarra, all located in close proximity to the trans-galactic wormhole that permits travel between Galfarra and the Milky Way. This Alliance is a full member of the Galfarran Union and, as such, uses Galfarran Credits with authority to mint them.

The Alliance, as it is more commonly called by its members, was a natural evolution of the Sweytzian government. It began with the first Sweytzian colony of Tilthanes, when it was decided that the system would govern itself for practicality’s sake, but that the two systems could work together for mutual benefit. This was in the Sweytzian year 97. Since then there have been seven more colonies, and the remaining eight members are comprised of three colonies from Galfarra, and the rest are colonies settled by Milky Way peoples or are colonies of the Sweytzian colonies. Not all Sweytzian colony worlds (counting colonies of colonies) are Alliance members, though most are on friendly terms with it. An interesting quirk, despite being very near to and on very good terms with several nearby star systems with indigenous people the SA does not yet have any member worlds that did not originate as a colony; albeit this is by simple coincidence, not design, and some nearby indigenous worlds have considered petitioning for membership.

The Alliance’s structure and charter is based on Sweytz’ founder’s original thesis, and the Sweytzian constitution itself. Member worlds send emissaries who are granted representative powers by their homeworlds and decide on policies that affect the Alliance as a whole, and to select their representatives to the Galfarran Union parliament.

The Alliance, technically, is little more than a trade union, but does have the power to engage in a certain measure of military action as a portion of each member’s military is pledged to the Alliance Council’s use as a joint force intended for protection from piracy and to keep the intersystem patrols for deep space defense.

While, as a Galfarran Union member, the Alliance has the right to mint its own internal currencies (and by its own laws its member worlds each hold the same right and are required to honour one another’s money) this right is not exercised. The Alliance relies on Credits, though Lokjiyu does use its own traditional currency, the Triluri. Nearly all of the member worlds use Galfarran for the native language, and the Council is held in Galfarran. Though all of the worlds seem to be home to speakers of many diverse languages.

The Sweytzian Alliance holds an honoured status in the Mugdarran Empire, has full mercantile access to the Kivanian Imperium, has a shaky political if strong economic relationship with the Terran Confederation through the member world Sweytz, and is a celebrated ally of the Allurian crown, just to name a few of its influential friends. They also work and trade freely with many minor groups in all three galaxies. Noteworthy on the opposite side of things the Sweytzian Alliance is on very poor terms, at times verging on war, with Anerix; they are banned from all thirteen star systems of His Majesty the King of Glamirth who has decreed that all Alliance ships, regardless of class or purpose, are to be destroyed on sight; and Alliance merchants may trade with Klingdou, but may not step off their ships nor interact with them without covering their heads with a shroud – a potent insult, doubled in Klingoi estimation, by their refusal to accept Alliance member ambassadors or to allow private citizens to enter the star systems except to trade.


A little used Galfarran title, with origins among the Flindrosa of the Glakinod star system. Taredĵo is one of absolute legal authority. In very few circumstances has it ever been used such that it did not lead to a dictatorship, in fact the only current examples of this title in use are to be found in the law enforcement of the Sweytzian Alliance worlds: Sweytz and those worlds within its system, Talgori, Velrod, and Selinasa.

In its traditional form, the full authority of law is given to a single individual, who may then appoint at their own discretion and authority any number of vataredi to assist as deputies. Taredĵo is always a proper noun, and treated appropriately, due to tradition that has been lost in antiquity, though some guess that it was due to the Taredĵo’s very singular role, though grammarians are quick to point out that this would be utter nonsense. The Taredĵo is responsible both for enforcing laws, sentencing, judging, etc. in easily half of the cases that a society appointed a Taredĵo that individual also became the sole law maker, and in all cases but the Sweytzian Alliance’s use of it was the case within a generation.

The Sweytzian Taredĵo is afforded the autonomy and authority that the title implies, but the founders of the worlds believed to have found a balance and so far have proven correct as the oldest society in the group to use the title is over three hundred of its years old, and easily an hundred generations have been protected by its Taredĵo without any signs of tyranny.

This difference is from the laws containing a prescribed punishment, the law making authority being firmly in the hands of the populous as a whole, the Taredĵo and her vataredi not being the only ones allowed to enforce local law, the Taredĵo’s authority extends only over a province with the Taredĵo of other provinces able to bring aid to a province whose Taredĵo goes rogue, as well as the populous having control of the military which can bring down a rogue Taredĵo.

Taredĵo are always appointed for life by the government in control, be it a king, or in the SA’s case by popular vote. They are tasked with keeping the peace and upholding law and order, and then given full authority to do this as they see fit. The Sweytzian Alliance worlds are not the first to think of giving law making powers to a separate group thinking that in so doing they would stop the power hungry, or in some cases well meaning, Taredĵo from usurping all power, but all of these tasked the individual with the world’s peace. The SA is the only example of limited geographical authority with an army independent of the vataredi.

In the case of the Sweytzian Alliance’s use of the title, there is a codified selection processes. When a former Taredĵo dies or steps down, or in the one dozen incidences throughout the multiple centuries as well as planets and provinces, is overthrown a number of eligible vataredi announce their willingness to take the position to their provincial council. The vataredi then select those they feel do not have the leadership ability for the position and those candidates applications are rejected. After this initial culling of those the vataredi are unwilling to answer to, the full provincial council considers the candidates remaining via full access to all records of their time as a vetaredi, as well as consideration of their general character – suffice to say the title nearly always goes to the one best known among the people by being most active and outspoken in council as well as being more public and visible in general – then the matter goes to vote. In the case of a tie, the candidates themselves are asked to make the tie breaking decision, which curiously does not often lead to a second tie, but when it does then the Taredĵo of all the other provinces of that world vote not from those who tied but all those initially considered by the voting council.

Restrictions on the Sweytzian Alliance Taredĵo are that they are not judges in cases where guilt is questionable, they instead become the prosecution in a council trial. They may not perform executions, a criminal’s only right by Sweytzian constitution and those based on it is the right to life; they are not given absolute autonomy in sentencing, laws include what punishments are deemed justified, though most give the Taredĵo choices with regards to details and thus it can still go very badly to annoy a Taredĵo during sentencing; and they are not given free access to the provincial coffers, and are granted a budget that they may request increases in and present their reasons to the council and must manage their equipment and vataredi force based on that budget.

Taredĵo Tera Evans

Bithdate: 4 Gadmeso 260
Birthplace: Outside of Lurenci, Delthakk Province, Sweytz, Sweytzian Alliance, Milky Way
Current Residence: Outside of Lus Ville, Delthakk Province, Sweytz, Sweytizan Alliance, Milky Way
Biography: Tera is the fourth child of Maia and Lana Evans and currently Delthakk Province’s Taredĵo.

Her mothers were not exceptionally well off people by Sweytzian standards, but they did make a comfortable enough living that their daughters were able to be born (the discoveries that would allow ova-merge techniques to be both more effective and significantly cheaper did not exist until Tera was 25 years old) and the family never wanted for necessities and small luxuries.

Her mother Maia had an interest in martial arts and was wont to watching tournaments and competitions when possible, and a very young Tera quickly took an interest in them as well. Before long she was a student of NenEG and winning many local competitions and tournaments.

When she was a young teen she married the woman with whom she’d been best friends since, literally, the cradle – the pair’s parents were very good friends and the two children were only a few days apart in age – Renata Kavaliro, a rising star in Ruvellian Fencing circles.

Tera, always seeking challenges, travelled the galaxies attending prestigious tournaments and even underworld competitions where the only rules were to win (well, she normally drew the line at one step better where it was frowned upon to actually kill the opponent on purpose, and never competed in any where the rules were that the fight was to death). This led to her first brush with the Terran Confederation.

At that time members of the T.C. were not a common sight on Sweytz, at least not in the sparsely populated northern Province of Delthakk, and even in New Junil, the thriving cultural and tourist metropolis saw so few of them that Terran Standard was on virtually none of the signs in the spaceport and when it was it was usually small. A friend had heard of a competition on one of the Centauri worlds and Tera agreed to go along as well. She was quickly and terribly irritated by the stifling piles of rules for the competition, but did well despite this and had spent the time leading to the fights carefully reading the rulebook that had been passed to a transreader (at the time the only language Tera knew was Galfarran and the rules were in English only).

There was a complaint from various of the other competitors who felt that someone so small couldn’t possibly have the speed and strength that Tera possessed. The tournament officials had already taken blood samples to test for performance enhancements, but due to the number of complaints checked again and ran more thorough tests which came back with indications that Tera’s DNA was artificially manipulated – one of the highest crimes in Confederate law as it violates several points in the very treaties that ended the third world war and founded the Confederation.

Tera was arrested and tried, being found guilty of fraud in entering a competition as a genetic construct, and of not declaring herself a genetic construct to customs entering a T.C. world. The judge was lenient as Tera’s defence asserted very strongly that, for her culture, she was not a construct by the standards of her society and that, conceding the point, her modifications were not performance enhancing. She was given a temporary ban from entering the T.C. and her passport was flagged to restrict both her activities and the duration of her stays when visiting the T.C., her file was also sent to the Bureau of Immigrations to be blacklisted – any application to become a Confederate citizen is to be automatically denied and she would have to seek dispensation of the ruling if her homeworld is ever annexed.

In 277 her wife joined Darrien’s Daggers and there met Viktor Blue, the Hero of Culs III from the recent fight with the Mugdarran Empire. Tera became instantly enraptured with his little girl, Virginia, and was fond of Viktor (who Renata was falling madly in both love and lust with very quickly) and, on 7 Feino 279, the trio was married.

Tera continued to compete so, while Renata and Tera did own a home in Delthakk, the family called home the house of Viktor’s parents because a) Renata and Tera’s home was scaled to women who are 18½ varĵé and just shy of 20, and Viktor is a korĵed and a half; b) Viktor and Renata would both be away often and for long periods for Darrien, and Tera would be gone for various frequencies and durations following the tournaments.

On 29 Makako 280 Renata had Lyndsey Katherine Kavaliro-Blue, the family’s first of many children together.

Near Spring Fest that year Tera met and began dating (and falling in love with) a vetaredi named Ruragak Tvilg’kirst Sullockalonesk, a quiet and thoughtful Kivanian man. They were married in Gadmeso 281

In 284 the family was grieving the assumed death of Viktor, who was fighting along with Renata and the rest of Darrien’s Daggers to end the Dichidian Expansion when she discovered a minor miracle had occurred: she was pregnant with Rur’s child.

It should be noted that, as a human race, Kivanians and Humans can interbreed and the successful offspring are normally fertile (fewer than 3 in 10000 such births are sterile) but due to the dramatic differences in Kivanian and Human circulatory and respiratory systems there is a very high rate of miscarriage within the early stages of the first trimester, though once past this hurdle no more children are born with significant issues than in normal Kivanian/Kivanian or Human/Human pairings. Put another way, she’d known the man for only 3 years and had already conceived a child with him, that survived to be noticed, a rather remarkable detail.

The child was born, a daughter, Rialanna Nahirim Sullockalonesk-Evans on 11 Vendredo 284 just a korva and a half after Viktor had returned to them from his captivity.

At that point Tera retired from her far flung tournament fighting and joined the Delthakk vetaredi.

The family would have more children; thirty children for her family in total not counting their various spice.

Georgia and Crystabel, Tera’s second pregnancy and first with twins was one that started out a bit troublesome. Tera had learnt with Rialanna that her morning sickness and other unpleasant early pregnancy symptoms were a bit worse than average; it was exponentially worse with twins. She made it through, and the girls were born.

In 296 Salandra Leah Sullokalonesk-Evans was born, making her second child by Rur. Later she would have yet another, Aldrick, showing a remarkable fertility with her markedly exotic husband.

On 21 Kvara 298 Tera would become Delthakk’s Taredĵo and has been serving in this capacity since.

303 saw the last children Tera would ever have with any Human man with the birth of yet another pair of twins, Yvonne and Daphne. She has become convinced that she can only have single births with Rur especially as Renata has had twins with both Lance and Viktor (as well as quadruplets). While Renata’s multiples have all been fraternal, and Tera while fully aware the difference she points out that hyperemesis is perfect justification for illogical paranoia.

Most recently she has conceived two more daughters, one by long time best friend and lover, Renata, and one to her. Arianna Hashrad Evans-Kavaliro and Arcielle Viona Kavaliro-Evans.

Biography: Serena was born to Irishwoman Coleen Cole neé Brennan and Englishman Thomas Cole and is the youngest of three children.

From an early age Serena showed a remarkable talent for mathematics and memory. She was certified a genius, a lightning calculator, and shown to have a photographic memory when given her pre-kindergarden examninations by Beueau of Education officials at age four.

When she was six years old her parents moved to Sweytz because they had ben contracted to build a replica of a great historic monument in one of that planet’s provinces. Over the ensuing years her parents were working on that and numerous other projects that were requested of them while they lived on that world Serena found herslef excelling in academics and even was enroled in the formost university of the region, Delthakk University, at age eleven.

At this same time her parents were preparing to return to Earth. Serena elected to stay behind and was left the house her parents had designed and constructed and in the care of their neighbours and a very powerful household computer servent affectionately dubbed Cici. In another three years she’d earned a Professorship in mathematics and physics through various discoveries regarding the shape and nature of wormholes and the completely new field of mathematics she’d developed to describe her findings.

Her findings have led to a great deal of debate in academic circles, though it cannot be denied that her calculations do work very well to describe all known natural wormholes and accurately predict all issues that had been encountered in any attempt to generate one artificially. The debate largely has to do with her findings regarding the nature of time, history, how wormholes function with regards to this dynamic and complex model of time, and her expanding hyperspace by a full dozen dimensions beyond the usual accepted.

In Dekdua of Sweytzian year 306 she married the young dancer, and a childhood friend, Georgia Ellen Blue-Evans and together they now have twin daughters Kaelee Ginger Cole-Evans and Dejah Fiona Evans-Cole who were born in Ĵaudo of 307.
