Ry’nao, Emperor of the Unified Seven Galaxies.
He is rumored to be over 300 Standard Years Old at the time Adia meets Ryonne~. His body was bred to take many telepathic links, and he is custodian of the Gray Cube, basis for the Diplomatic Link. The Gray Cube was given to him by the Council, to store information but not to generate any power of any kind. Councilors use the links to his diplomats to monitor the progress of our trade level and observe those races likely to be chosen to rise to the Council someday.
Peshana, Ry'nao's third wife.
She is not Empress because she is so painfully shy, their healer, Ket, advised against the position. Ket thinks that kind of stress might stop her heart. She needed healing often when each of their children chose to be operatives. They lost many, and the rest are currently missing. The stress of this affects her health greatly.
