Adabicci / Lunion / Spinward Marches
Duke Names Ianic CommissionThe Duke of Adabicci has announced the members appointed to the Ianic (1924 Spinward Marches; E3606E9-5) commission:
The composition is interesting in that it has a balance between trade groups and local Ianic
representation, giving the chairperson a powerful casting vote if the members
split as expected along party lines. In effect, Dame Arahani will be
determining the future of Ianic herself.
- Dame Arahani of Adabicci, who will chair the commission
- Sir Grenna Malacaar, representative of Tukera Lines, LIC
- Dame Mirriam Collaya, representative of Imperiallines, LIC
- Armis Kowrollian, prominent Jonkeereen activist and native of Ianic
- Xzrdz "NoName" Krzztz, designated representative of the interim government of Ianic
Although the Duke has reportedly not expressed any preferences for the identity of the future Marquis of Ianic, placing so much power in the hands of his daughter surely hints that she
is expected to be elevated to the title. Dame Arahani would be a popular
choice among the social elite of Adabicci (1824 Spinward Marches; A57189B-B). Her older brother Eduard,
Lord Adabicci, is of course in line for the ducal title, while her younger
brother Sir Geoffrey has always shown a marked disinterest in Imperial politics.
The choice of Imperiallines as the second trade corporation on the commission
is of great interest, especially in light of the company's recent role in establishing
the new class C starport on Pimane (2527 Spinward Marches; C500343-4). Trade analysts are speculating that this represents a sign that Ianic is due for a starport upgrade, and a larger role in the economy of coreward Lunion.
