Her Most Awful Majesty, Emperor Swayvil Izikathi Eziyishumi, is the head of the Legion, and a blood sibling of Gramble Sawall.

There is a popular rumour amongst the entitled that she has passed through the Chiral Door ten times. Members of the Legion do not put much store by this rumour, saying that the Emperor’s after-name is a reference not to power-seeking in the Gyre, but a memoriam to worlds she failed to save.

Mandor puts a polite face on it, but like most people, he’s terrified of her.
