Notable Cossacks

A fine idea taken from other more experienced players, this is not only an attempt to make the numerous important people in the FRCP more comprehensive but also a way for the player to actually remember and keep track of which names have already been used, instead of combing the RMB for horribly misspelled surnames.

Please note: this is meta, and thus your characters and governments will not know many characters.

Vadimir Bezukhov
Description: M, 53
Title/Occupation: Principle Chairman of the FRCP; honorary Marshal of the Cossack Peoples
Info: Arriving to the office of the Principle Chairman in 2004, Vadimir (the generally obsolete root name of Vadim) is generally accepted throughout the country as one of the most capable leaders in the nation's history, if not the world. His face, pale and sickly but incredibly striking, has nearly become synonymous with the office of Principle Chairman; causing his name to be obscured over his most common title of Principle Chairman.

His early career in office was marked by insurrections and suppressions, border expansions and technological booms. However, hidden in the wake of such achievements and triumphs were always oppressed, suppressed, and heavily abused populace under Bezukhov's campaigns. A policy of rewriting official documents that would appear damaging to the Federal Republic was instigated, as well as direct attacks on foreign academia by misguided Cossack academics. The entire attitude of the Federal Republic had seemingly turned into a hellish authoritarian state.

However, his health has waned in recent years, publicly attributed to age and heritage, but to a handpicked few the diagnosis is very different; the onset of psychosis brought on by past strokes.
