Psychological Characteristics

Personality: With the passing of his sister, and the sweeping changes which had taken place around him, Velor's personality has managed to endure, save for his inability to retain a degree of objective focus. With the loss of his sister, Velor has fallen into what could only be described as a state of mourning, bordering upon depression. Somber moods dominate his day to day life, only broken by occasions in which he has the good fortune to spend time with his children, or to take on work which is demanding enough to hold his focus, at such times he finds the capacity to regain a sense of normality.

Goals: To maintain the quality of life for the Lorath people, learning as much as possible, keeping his sister happy, bearing a heir to the throne, and maintaining balance and peace.


History: He is the older brother of his sister Destiny, only himself and his sister remained after the death of the ruling family in an accident. After the death of his parents he and his sister became the rulers of the Lorath. After taking the throne he went about maintaining the peace between the three houses that are below his own. He has also been known to devise many new pieces of technology to aid in the growth and prosperity of his people, and allow them to maintain a high quality of life. His efforts to maintain the luxurious lifestyle of his people are due to him viewing their current prosperity as a reward to compensate for the centuries that his ancestors were imprisoned below the ground of Lor.

Velor’s efforts to maintain his people’s quality of life were thwarted upon the arrival of Yamataian forces to the Lor system. Shortly after their arrival, a forced treaty was signed, which resulted in Lor being marked by the Mishhu as a target. Due to this, during Velor’s leadership, Lor had endured a catastrophic assault which left half of the planet dead or dying, this was not all however, the Mishhu seemed to hold a desire to deal more misery to the Lorath people. Due to this, Velor and his sister Harr’Ikke gave the order to evacuate Lor. With the aid of the 5th XF, the Lorath were able to evacuate Lor and settle on a new world.

After the evacuation, the Lorath settled in the Nyli and Hici'emi systems. Selecting Nyli III as the location of their primary colony. The Lorath quickly went about rebuilding their civilization upon colonizing Nyli. During this, Velor took a strong lead in promoting the development of the Lorath civilization into a galactic power. However, during this development, an attempt was made upon his sister's life, the attack was carried out by an Occhestian. Due to the attack, Velor found himself in a situation of directing his people and family at a time of war.

Unfortunately, the streak of near-miss luck which the Lorath had found themselves in had collapsed, along with the United Outer Colonies which the Lorath were allies and neighbors to. With the collapse of the United Outer Colonies, his people were confronted directly with two evils, the first of which was the most crippling, as the NMX pressed their attack upon the United Outer Colonies, their assault resulted in a confrontation, led by the Lorath Xiaah, Velor's Sister, Harr'ikke. While the Lorath forces were successful in routing the NMX assault group which they had targeted, the cost was severe, with the death of the Lorath queen. Upon Harr'ikke's death, Velor ascended to a provisional position of leadership, until a suitable Tur'listian female could be raised, or produced, to take his place.

Beyond the matter of the NMX, came the issue of the vacuum which was left by the absence of the United Outer Colonies, and what filled that vacuum, came in the form of the Yamatai Empire, in which the High Priest is confronted with while leading his people to endure the troubled times in which they had found themselves.
