Arcturus Astrum Acquaintances
|Matron of the Tohvayash, inhabitants of the Rogue Moon, the body of Ashari, the "Ava" [ā-va], resides in a stasis capsule that has preserves her life for millenia (unlike her descendants, she is not immortal). Although her body is in stasis, her mind is very active and linked to the colony computer network, allowing her control of the entire complex. She also may appear anywhere on the colony as a holographic avatar.
Her male counterpart and mate, Yetsam, the "Adam" [a-dam], resides besides her, mummified remains in the damaged stasis capsule.
|Hounquichal & Spilizh|
Following the emergence of Velkinor in the Republic, Arcturus met with two Turuk historians to aid in his research.
Spilizh is still alive, but very old for a Turuk. She currently resides on Ojikan, the Turuk homeworld. In the year 3076:287RD (20 Apr 1694), Spilizh published her findings on the Spilizh Artifacts.
In her findings Spilizh found evidence of recurring extinctions throughout the galaxy. There was a mass extinction around 65 million years ago and another about 3.5 million years ago. Most of the artifacts found have been in geographical strata of both 65 million and 3.5 million years ago. Some theories are that there was a civil war with the ancient civilization, or a force from outside of the galaxy destroyed the civilization, or a natural phenomenon spurred chaos on the galaxy.
|Javi Wi'zen Dehg|
Javi Wi'zen Dehg [ja-vē wī-zen deg] is a 15-year-old male Fa'Hi who currently serves as an Otoji of the Solani Order, assigned to Arcturus as his apprentice.
Javi grew up in the eastern slums of Kado Denga, capital city on the Fa'Hi homeworld of Tas'Nir in the An'Pash system. He never knew is father and his mother died from illness when Javi was only six years of age. From the ages of six to thirteen, he lived alone in the slums, an urchin forced to scrounge and steal in order to survive.
Two years ago, while attempting to pick the pocket of an offworlder outside the spaceport, Javi got caught, in a very serious way... bound by an invisible force. The man, a Solani Knight, took some time to ask Javi many questions about his life. The knight took sympathy, told the boy he was lucky this time. Most others would have jailed him or killed him as a thief. The knight suggested to the boy to find somewhere to work, to earn credits the honest way.
Javi, never forgot that encounter. Most of all he was intrigued by the invisible force used against him. Ultimately, he decided he wanted to be like that knight, so he began searching and stowing away aboard transports until he made his way to the Solani Temple.
During the stage of initiation, the masters who interviewed him were concerned of his history as a thief, but Kokani [T]pahp sensed deep inside that Javi had at heart a desire to do good, that his actions in life before were done out of necessity, not out of desire. They decided to give him a chance.
Over the last year, Javi has been receiving his initial training and instructions from the masters at the temple. He was just recently assigned to serve with Kokani Arcturus.

|William Chen, born Chen Tāo Ming in Jinan, China, moved with his family at an early age to San Francisco, California. His father, a successful banker, and his mother, a skilled lawyer, placed a huge amount of pressure on William to achieve both academic and extracurricular success. Deprived of a normal childhood, his life was devoted to martial arts practice, homework and study for advanced placement school work, and internship work at both his parents businesses. Then, at the age of 16, he reached the limit of his endurance and suffered a major break-down, which ultimately led to him running away from home.
For the next 14 years, he lived life on the streets. His skill of charm and persuasion opened the hearts and wallets of many who contributed to his welfare. Where charm failed, William found that a convincingly forged document could come in very handy, such as for officially changing his name to William. In time, William began to grow out of the stage of survival and he began to become much more acquainted to the world around him. What he soon discovered was that the world around him sucked. The media reported problems of receding wilderness areas, overpopulated cities, pollution of the environment, extinction of animals and a massive gap in the upper and lower classes. Crime, drug addiction, famine, corruption and disease were out of control in the lower class. To William, the root cause of all these problems and the misery of mankind was the Primacorps. The power-hungry corporations were effectively squeezing the life out of Earth just to earn more money.
In 2100, William made the decision to do something about the Primacorps problem. This time, his charm and persuasion were put to work gathering like-minded individual to join his cause. Founder of the Anti-Primacorp Coalition, over the next 5 years he lead a campaign of war against the Primacorps. Protests, propaganda, riots, espionage, sabotage, bomb-threats and the destruction of installations and equipment were the battlefields of his organization. Quickly, he became the number one target of every Primacorps security agent, bounty hunter and mercenary in the Sol system. Concerned for his safety, several of his closest companions advised him to secretly flee Earth. Unfortunately, it was during his attempt to leave that the Primacorps security agents finally succeeded in tracking him down. Arrested and tried for acts of terrorism, he was sentenced to a life term in prison. Outraged by this arrest, Anticorp continued to wage war with the Primacorps. Leaders of the organization were preparing break William out of prison, but before they could make such an attempt, fate would lead William into the unexpected escape from Brin-2 and his freedom.
Having a significant role in the rebellion that led to the fall of the Primacorps, and one of the key members of the group that established the interim government, he now serves as a high ranking official of the United Coalitions Imperium.
