Yuris System — Severian Principate Territory
Valis Rendeshi straightened the files on her desk while her mind poured over the general logistics of the Principate’s continued efforts of stability. The Triumvir of Steel paused her organization efforts only for a momentary sip of water. Hydration was always critical. Most would say the breaks occurred every minute or so. Valis would correct that to the note of being exactly a minute.
Satisfied at last, she sat back in her chair and reached for a separate glass, a fine brandy, a victory gift from her supporters that she had slowly been enjoying over the months since her election.
Across the room, The Triumvir of Words sat straight, seemingly even more uncomfortable in her new position than Valis. Jacinta Ni’Erilia had been an odd elective choice by the Principate. They were nearly universally exhausted of the strong military minds that Jacinta represented. From the fall of the Empire, the massive shortcomings of the New Republic, the terror of the First Order, the stories of Exogol and the Final Order, all the way to the horrible events on Dandoran, many systems had aligned with the Principate’s reformed efforts.
