OVERVIEW


Ever since the 2320 Gateway coup, Khoronzon has had no official cabinet-equivalent within its government. The previously existing Ministry Council, which was comprised of the highest officials within each main branch of the state, was abolished and replaced by Evehxhas alone, along with all the respective offices of its members, whose tasks, functions, and authorities have been wholly absorbed into the Office of the Sovereign. However, Evehxhas does still maintain an advisory council of sorts in the form of the so-called "Inner Circle" - a largely unofficial grouping of individuals close to him who, while mostly lacking in de jure political authority, possess considerable standing and notoriety for their status as the Emperor's closest associates, and are widely seen as being his eyes, ears, and mouthpieces in the absence of his more "direct" personal proxies.

Owing to its informal nature and the veil of secrecy around many of the Emperor's activities, the exact size and makeup of the Inner Circle is not publicly known. However, a few notable figures known to be considerably close to the Emperor include Grand Apostle Xhasthrai of the Order of the Shroud, officers Vasilyas SVZ75 and Ashya SSK81 of the Gatekeeper Battalion, and Ilyaron EGN67, the Municipal Administrator of the city of Vohzhrost.

"At evening Iranon sang, and while he sang an old man prayed and a blind man said he saw a nimbus over the singer‘s head. But most of the men of Teloth yawned, and some laughed and some went away to sleep; for Iranon told nothing useful, singing only his memories, his dreams, and his hopes."

"There are few things as inescapable as savagery. Like an insidious disease, it creeps into the minds of those who think themselves civilised, and must constantly be held at bay lest one find oneself dancing to its wicked tune."

Lt. Vasilyas SVZ75 is the leader of the elite Lycosa-1 platoon within the Lycosa company, Emperor Evehxhas' personal guard force which itself is a component of the Gateway cult's subordinated battalion known as the Gatekeepers. In spite of his inferior status to Captain Ashya SSK81, who commands Lycosa as a whole, he is Evehxhas' closest associate within the company, and consequently has considerable, yet rarely concretely acknowledged, de facto authority over the rest of the Gatekeeper Battalion outside of his direct command.

One of the few remaining base-born Khoronzonites, particularly within positions of power, Vasilyas hails from a nomadic community of outlaws that resided in the South of the Ural province, typically traveling around the outskirts of the city of Salyakh and scraping an independent living mainly from raids on cargo deliveries. As is often the case with such communities, however, the state soon caught up to it - a Branch V police raid carried out on Vasilyas' ninth birthday left nearly everyone he knew slaughtered, with the few survivors being arrested and enslaved. Vasilyas himself was drafted into a penal military force assembled to fight against Ecumene-backed PMC incursions into the Supremacy's western border, and was quickly indoctrinated and trained into serving as an expendable child soldier alongside numerous others who had known similar fates.
