Baronet Zaka Ilimin

6669AC, Vilani female 54 (Noble/Administator 1, Merchants/Broker 1, Drifter/Beach Bum 3, Scholar/Life Sciences 1, Noble/Administrator 1).

Admin 1, Advocate 2, Art 0, Athletics 2, Broker 4, Carouse 1, Combat (pistol) 2, Comms 1, Computers 0, Diplomat 1, Investigate 1, Persuade 1, Social Science (Economics) 1, Trade 0. Her son’s yacht is technically titled to her. Body pistol. Other assets worth 500 MCr. Available cash: 1 MCr.

Born a minor noble nobody, served in bureaucracy for a few years. Even survived an assassination attempt by a rival family. She felt that the scheming of nobles wasn’t for her and decided to go to college like a normal person, but her parents punished her for disobeying, and they bribed the college to deny her application.

Zaka went into the draft and ended up in the Merchant Marines as a port broker on Dlan/Shunim (Ilelish 1323). She met her future husband there, a guy from Shadun. After one term of service, she mustered out and tried to go back to college, but her parents killed that again.

She ended up following her boyfriend to Shadun and lived on its beaches for 12 years without any contact with her parents (they had no idea where she went). Had a baby (Abakhi). Raised him here.

Her 20-something-year-old son ran afoul of the island Mob, and they tried to blackmail her, and they killed her husband. She didn’t do what they wanted, threatening them with Imperial doom. The following years were super hard on her, nearly killing her, too, from the emotional stress of fighting trumped-up legal battles and brokering deals to get herself out of trouble. Ultimately, the Mob fears her and doesn’t want trouble. They leave her son alone, too.

She ultimately did get to college, getting a Bachelor of Science in Economics with Honors from the University at Core.

In the past 5-6 years, the Baron of Shadun died without an heir. While in Core, Zara asked Emperor Strephon for the Baronetcy. She convinced him of her love for the system and, frankly, he saw an easily controlled, unambitious noble who would follow orders. Dulinor gave his blessing and she was made Baronet of Shadun.

While he has a Soc B, he probably isn't the Knight-in-Residence, as that position is usually earned by the individual and does not overlap higher nobility. That doesn't rule it out, though.

(Select) Worlds of Biika Subsector

Veshaa (2212 Verge) - C687244-7 - Ga Lo
Until 1022, Veshaa was a Company world, owned and run as a research station by Gault Diversities LIC out of Sirim (Verge 1912). Veshaa has a distinctive biosphere, attracting research for exotic compounds for any and all applications. For reasons that remain unclear almost a century later, Gault put their charter for Veshaa and the research station up for sale, apparently expecting a quick sale. The sale was stymied by a second and still mysterious party who then, through agents, turned the Charter over to the research station personnel. Their descendants are slowly expanding their presence, and are looking toward relocating their capital to allow the Imperial port to expand.
Veshaa has rebuffed colonization efforts in the past due to its unusual and very robust biosphere, and the citizens here know their future will be a fight against that. As is often the case with deserted garden worlds, speculation about hidden native sophonts abound, but the limited resources brought to bear so far have not discovered any. If the Veshaans know of any natives they are not talking about it.
The Knight-in-Residence of Veshaa is an outsider from Noargan (Verge 2413 and the subsector capital), which is somewhat unusual. While he keeps a close eye on developments between the Veshaans, the SPA, Gault Diversities (who remain a client), and other interested parties, he spends much of his time at a retreat built on an ice-bound mountaintop protruding from the south polar cap.


Inan (2017 Verge) - A85A351-F - Wa Lo
A mild, if not chilly, waterworld, Inan is another world which has changed hands in the recent past. Previously the site of a deep sea mining operation based around an unusually large deposit of rare earths, including lanthanum, Inan attracted a great many transients and opportunists seeking to make a living from the miners. When the mining charter expired around the same time the deposit became depleted, the prior charter holders declined to renew it and departed. The transients and opportunists who didn't feel like leaving were, through machinations of the Subsector Duke, awarded the world in 1075.
One of few fully capable starports in the subsector, Inan Down now lies mostly unused and Inan Highport brings in outside labor to support its shipbuilding. The newly minted Inani recognize an opportunity but are struggling to capitalize on it, despite being as technologically capable as anyone in the sector. They are just beginning to eye the available labor pool of Wanderers and Severed from Iedde (Verge 2816 in neighboring Miruu Subsector) as potential immigrants.
The world's lone Imperial Noble, the Knight-in-Residence, maintains a lavish estate on an island far from the port, but near where the mining operation was located. He is open about returning the former Company "recreation facility" to the planetary government when they are ready for it. He also keeps offices at both Downport and Highport.
The Downport and the lone working community are at opposite ends of an archipelago in the southern equitorial seas. The immense "bullseye" landing grid in the ocean around the port island is visible from orbit.

In this case, it just neatly wrapped it all up. It's a tiny nothing of a system in the backwater. They don't need another knight.

Fair enough. It suggests that the son is more capable than he appears. Proper Knighthoods don't get passed out so easily. The hands off approach you describe as the current underworld attitude may have been earned.

Oh, I just assumed that it was a mom-son package deal from Strephon.

Strephon is the ultimate authority, of course, but this would be a rare case.

(Select) Worlds of Miruu Subsector (H)

Sarlee (Verge 2811) - A310746-C N Na Pi
Wreathed in the barest of atmospheres, Sarlee's mountainous terrain divides the small world into a number of large dusty lowlands, strung in a chaotic trail around the globe. Long devoid of water, the planet still shows signs of the oceans that once covered it, as well as the wind-carved badlands that could not have come to pass in such a thin atmosphere.
The promise of easily extracted metals and a viable place to call home brought settlers here in the late stages of the Ziru Sirka. They would be bolstered by a wave of Solomani a few hundred years later. The world gave up its metals, including the all-important lanthanum, at a slow but steady pace, keeping Sarlee occupied and in demand all through the Long Night. The domed cities increased in number gradually over the centuries, reaching the current number of great domed cities around the Imperial year 700. Smaller domed communities also dot the globe. The oldest, Leeton, has mined out its surroundings and now serves as the hub of the world government. The others remain centered on mining, and also harvest the inevitable dust from the atmosphere by using the domes that protect them as enormous static traps. A dome just short of its annual Cleaning Day can require traffic beacons to locate, so effective is the camouflage of the dust.
The cities are both distinct and clearly related, both as large works of architectural civic art, and for their people who are rightly proud of their world and home city. Team sports are big here, and world-wide leagues popular.
The Marquis of Sarlee traditionally holds an impressive palace fortress in the southern mountains, built over the location of one of the deep mining taps that the original settlers used to assay locations. In the three thousand years since the tap was abandoned for the domed city at Leeton, the catacombs under the Marquis' palace have taken on a legendary status.


Zinpi (2518 Verge) - B89A368-9 - Wa Lo O:2519 (Beraugaus)
The only rocky world in a system dominated by five gas and ice giants and one wide and chaotic belt, Zinpi serves as a playground for the rulers of Beraugaus, one parsec away. The Starport Authority here is kept to a minimum, and the repair and construction services are contracted to several eccentric locals who maintain extensive shops that work on nautical craft for the visitors from Beraugaus between spacecraft jobs. The boatyards here are neither fast nor widely known, but do have a reputation for quality, and specialize in amphibious designs. They will typically refer spacecraft orders for "normal" designs to other yards unless custom luxury work is called for. They can build to the TL of Beraugaus (TL C) readily.
The remaining residents are either successful ex-pats from Beraugaus, or permanent staff for the homes of the aristocracy. One of those ex-pats is the Knight-in-Residence, who can be found most easily by asking in the bars of the Port, though he does also have an island retreat of his own near the equator. There are estates scattered, often undocumented, across the many islands of this large world, and the IISS is fairly sure they are missing populace in the official Survey.
As is often the case with water worlds, there are always rumors of undiscovered sophonts in the deep. Zinpi's native life is diverse, but does not appear to have taken many steps down the path of sentience.
There is a Highport over Zinpi, but not a large one. It serves mostly to keep passing ships from landing, though it does this only passively. The SPA here recognizes lost potential, and quietly subverts the will of Beraugaus with regards to its "colony".
