NICKSON received an excellent education which led to the prospect of an outstanding Military Career.
During his student years he showed an aptitude for natural resourcefulness and tactical techniques.
NICKSON received his first field promotion on the planet Juliette – 14, when the Imperial Guards Army was entrapped by the superior forces of the local insurgents. NICKSON’s excellent tactical skills helped the Imperial Army relocate and counterattack the enemy force.
The "Juliette" Operation and the further insurgency suppression on the planet "Verona" system guaranteed NICKSON a successful military career. Soon afterwards he was appointed as the Imperial Guard Colonel and became known as "Thorn".
NICKSON was known to be reckless with decision making, often incurring heavy losses of troops and gained notoriety amongst the Imperial Army, despite having many victorious operations.
NICKSON was immediately sent to participate in the insurgency suppression of "Tornado-1" after his father had disappeared. This encounter was long remembered as "Nickson's firestorm".
NICKSON, or Colonel "Thorn", as he was more often named in Mass Media, decided not to return to the Southern Sector and stayed on Mars as the Governor's right-hand man. For his extraordinary service, Edvin was promoted to the rank of Martian Imperial Guard Commander and then became the Mars Governor and the Emperor's First Combat Advisor.
2112 NE NICKSON was ordered to the Capital to participate in the secret PROJECT MEMORY which aimed to create a powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) which would enable knowledge collection from all remarkable persons living in the Era of the Nostalgia to be saved and protected.
Note: AI is based on the personality scans taken of the most Important Imperial representatives.
By order of the Emperor, NICKSON became the fourth and last participant.
Note: The "Memory" AI was integrated into the Sectors in forms of Advisors dealing with the corresponding branches of the commanders' activities.
2120 NE - NICKSON returned to Mars.
2120 NE – when the Grey Plague began, Mars was isolated from the outer world by his order and thus the pandemic caused by the outbreak of a powerful “Hades” nano-virus, was prevented from spreading for three years.When vital resources started running low, it was essential to resume contacts with the Empire which led to Grey Plague episode on Mars.
2124 NE during the landing bioforces control, NICKSON was infected with the "Hades" virus which resulted in his death. He was buried at the Hall of Imperial Heroes.

Full Name: PIRR Ignatius
Date of Birth: 2019 NE
Date of Expiration: 2079 NE
Registration: 2056 NE Registered in PROJECT MEMORY
Title: Imperial Guard Technical Advisor
2019 NE – PIRR was born on the largest of Neptune’s moons, Triton.
PIRR displayed an early aptitude for all of the Science disciplines, particularly mechanical and electrical engineering.
2036 NE - At age 17, he constructed his first space shuttle and used it to travel to the neighbouring Kuiper Belt. His achievements were noted in many scientific journals and enabled PIRR to be granted admission to the Tsigalko Institute on full scholarship.
2037 NE - At age 18, PIRR developed a dangerous nano-virus, putting the lives of fellow students and peers within the Tsigalko Institute at risk, even causing the deaths of some. PIRR neglected to inform the audience at the unveiling of the nano-virus that they should wear the Haz340N Hazardous Material suits as protection. The case was buried to allow the new virus to continue to be developed and to allow PIRR to serve as the primary technology advisor to the Imperial Family.
PIRR’s keen interests in geology, alongside biomechanics were manifested by huge developments and progression in the understanding of those sciences at the time. PIRR turned his attention to modelling an artificial biosphere to test his theories, with the ultimate goal of being able to turn planets which were once unsuitable for human life, into ones which could serve as a home for prosperous human habitation.
As necessity is often the mother of invention, so too was it true here. The problems he faced inspired the young scientist to delve into the study of geomagnetic and geophysical sciences. Through these developments, PIRR developed his first Geothermic Reactor, which when placed under a planet’s crust, was able to be used as a tool to shift the tectonic plates within a specified zone. This resulted in both extraordinary powers over a planet’s nature, and also as a powerful weapon against opposing forces if used in military operations.
The Imperial Family pushed PIRR to develop the Geothermic Reactor primarily as a human neutralizing weapon, and as a control weapon to be used against civilians of warring civilizations. PIRR refused this order, and as such was forcefully removed from the project. It was then that PIRR founded PROJECT MEMORY which would, if successful, allow personalities and memories to be saved, recorded and imprinted on humans.
2056 NE – PROJECT MEMORY proved extremely difficult to achieve at this time. After no firm progression in over 10 years, funding for PROJECT MEMORY was cut. The Imperial Dynastic Family deemed the project “too dangerous”, “too expensive” and even a “pointless waste of money”.
At the meeting with the Imperial Family’s Council, PIRR was distraught. In an effort to preserve funding to the project and offer some evidence that his technology was progressing, PIRR used PROJECT MEMORY technology to take a scan of his own personality profile.
The project worked, but it was not without its drawbacks. The subject of the scan, in this case PIRR himself, was reduced to the mental state of an infant. The personality scan taken from PIRR was saved and modified, and would form the basis for many technology advisors throughout the Galaxy through deep brain integration. As payment, and mostly to hide the after effects of the procedure PIRR was sent by the Imperial Family to live on his own secluded part of a nearby planet, complete with his own servants and an infinite pool of wealth.
2079 NE - PIRR died due to a deteriorating brain mass caused from his own testing with PROJECT MEMORY. Some accounts believed that he had transformed into a digital living being, but others stated that he was barely a human at the time of his death but instead resembled a man of almost 60 years older than he actually was. PIRR was buried with full honors at the Hall of Imperial Heroes.

Full Name: VERDEN Keera
AKA: Keera Raz, KRaz
Date of Birth: 2030 NE Earth-Zero
Date of death: 2061 NE
Registration: 2060 NE Registered in PROJECT MEMORY
Titles: Imperial Guard Diplomatic Advisor
2030 NE – Born on Earth-Zero
Her parents were famous Imperial diplomats descended from an ancient aristocratic family. Keera's parent’s social status and their financial wealth predetermined her future in many respects.
VERDEN received an excellent diplomatic education in which she was able to learn 118 languages and then graduated from the Diplomatic College with honors. VERDEN disappointed her parents by choosing "Local and Planet Conflict Reconciliation" as her specialization instead of "Interplanetary Diplomacy".
VERDEN started her career at the time when the anarchistic grouping "Extreme Response" strengthened its influence upon the Imperial Forces. By this time she was already married to a prominent sportsman, Steven RAZ.
The "Extreme Response" group became notorious for the organized insurgency within the New Rome Star System which resulted in the political elite’s removal from authority. They were subsequently taken hostage including the Emperor's distant nephew, Maximilian KURIYA.
VERDEN became a member of the diplomatic mission sent to reconcile the situation in New Rome. She was the only one to possess the rare talent of persuasion and thus she managed to turn counter-revolution into a state of calm. When the mission began, the planet inhabitants disarmed Extreme Response Forces and liberated the Star Blood representative within 5 days.
At that time Mass Media reports marvelled at her psychic skills and how they intensified with the effect of the Orbital Emitters. This combination ensured a victorious course of events.
2059 NE VERDEN became the first Advocacy Minister in the newly formed Ministry. Soon after this, she was proclaimed “Person of the Year”. At the ceremony for this award, the Emperor delivered a speech in which he stated that the Empire lives thanks to himself, but this life is peaceful and safe thanks to Keera Raz.
That year VERDEN also became a member of PROJECT MEMORY. Her personality scan was successfully taken and registered within the AI database. Next, her memory was developed and integrated within the sectors in the form of “The Diplomatic Advisor”.
Soon after her registration in the PROJECT MEMORY, VERDEN was badly wounded by terrorists during her speech on the planet Shorgan and thus was placed in a medically induced coma. The assassination attempt caused the immediate and powerful suppression of the opposition by the Imperial Army.
There were implications during the coma reversal process which proved ineffective in attempting to bring VERDEN back to life. The decision was made to create a cyborg using AI "Memory" and VERDEN’s body.
2140 NE - KRaz was the result of this work. KRaz is the only integrated advisor that is projected from General Winters' sector.

Full Name: TANAKHAN David
Date of Birth: 2000 NE
Date of Expiration: 2040 NE
Registration: 2040 NE Registered in Memory Project
Title: Imperial Guard Trade Advisor
2000 NE - Born on board the space trade shuttle "Ark", 2000 NE Parents were small interstellar traders.
2012 NE - When TANAKHAN was 12, both parents were arrested on suspicion of insulting the Emperor and executed on the Planet Parabellum-7. Just before the incident, his father sent TANAKHAN on the "Ark" outwards of the Parabellum system.
2018 NE - After his parents' execution, TANAKHAN joined the "Pure Blood" sect, which denied the Emperor's heaven born title and treated him as a human being. At age 18, having decided to vanquish the Universe, he left the sect stealing the treasury of the "Pure blood".
TANAKHAN provided information concerning the sect functions at the closest Imperial Checkpoint in order to avoid being followed. Thus, taking his father's shuttle and a considerable sum of money, he chose the life of adventure, intergalactic trading, and smuggling.
2023 NE - At age 23, TANAKHAN arrived at Earth-Zero under the guise of the Imperial Morale Officer. He organized a meeting with the 6 most affluent industrial magnates, with the alleged purpose of discussing the destiny of the massive Emperor's statue located on the planet Imperion.
He managed to convince the businessmen that the upkeep expenses were not reasonable and convinced them that the ramshackle statue should be dismantled. It was decided to sell the monument for scrap via a closed private auction. David took bribes in private meetings with each of the magnates and thus secured for himself wealth and influence.
As a result, he made more than 20 million credits and disappeared from the planet. The buyer's surprise was difficult to overestimate when he arrived at Imperion with the intention of dismantling the statue which no officials knew anything about.
2033 NE - Having been prosecuted and found guilty, TANAKHAN had to live in disguise for over 10 years. During this period of time he founded a successful company, "Imperial Trade Ways", which earned him large profits, as well as enabling him the position to manage a military base in the Southern Sector. This provided him with the perfect cover to deal in counterfeit documents, which in turn kept his smuggling operations hidden from prying eyes.
2033 NE - TANAKHAN was caught by the authorities but he managed to exchange his freedom for a technology of the Firsts (some informant sources claimed it was the "Cocoon" technology). Moreover, Tanakhan gained the Emperor's ear, which resulted in his amnesty and appointment as the inaugural Imperial Trade Advisor.
2040 NE - The Emperor decided to take TANAKHAN’s personality scan within the framework of PROJECT MEMORY. The project’s aim was to collect the personality scans of the most remarkable Imperial representatives under one grouped Artificial Intelligence (AI). After the Grey Plague, this AI was improved and integrated into the Sectors.
2040 NE - The first experiment on personality scanning resulted in TANAKHAN’s SNC damage which led to a brain tumour and his death. TANAKHAN was buried on the Earth-Zero.
