Heavens, no! General Puller is still an inspiration to the men and women of the Marine Corps.

I confess that his name got me to thinking of how I could adapt it to fit within the Vilani language "style", simply as a thought experiment.

I happened to roll up a female Imperial Marine character shortly afterwards and got the unusual career results described. The character needed a name and a back story and her name is the only way the two unrelated activities got connected.

I really tried.

I failed.

So I pledged enough to get some cool swag including noble honours for a character, so I picked Chehesti.

I don't know exactly what honours she'll get, so I'll just have to wait like the rest of the Imperial Enquirer's readers...
Vicountess of Regina, Spinward Marches

So that's where her "Chesty" came from.

I'll confess that when I first read this I thought something else, before I remembered the famous U.S. Marine.

I should which? Think of the same thing the pirates did?

OHHHH! You meant think of the Marine! I'm so so sorry!

I'm glad you enjoyed my write-up of General Chehesti.

I'm working up a scenario and associated short story to go with her appointment as Baroness of Byret / Mora.

I just placed an order for some starship deck plans from FFE and got a bonus Patent of Nobility card with my order.

Say hello to the Baronet of Vland/Vland, Imaah Chehesti.

It goes nicely with her Viscounty on Regina in the Spinward Marches...
