"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."

"Reality exists to be transcended. Tear down the walls of rationality. Be free."

Even before he became Xhasthrai the Dreamer, Minister of Truth and Grand Apostle of the Shrouded Ones, Iranon - as he was then known, and is still personally referred to among those close to him - had long been particularly close to the Emperor, with the two having the same Hatchery complex as their birthplace and being each other's closest friends since early adolescence. Possessive of a deep fascination with art, spirituality, and transcendence from a young age, and gifted with exceptional mental aptitude even as an A-class, his early education rapidly led to his being taken in by the Ministry of Truth - and, later, the Shrouded Ones - where, finding himself in his element, he became absorbed by the esotericism and hidden knowledge that had been revealed to him. As he gained influence within the priesthood, earning a reputation as a spiritual visionary, he worked alongside Narcissus during the latter's insurrection and turned much of the Ministry of Truth to his side. It was only natural, then, that he would be appointed as the head of both the Ministry and the Shrouded Ones, unifying the two more than ever to serve Khoronzon's new purpose.

"Mercy. Pity. Remorse. Useless sensibilities at best, treasonous grandstanding at worst. Give no quarter. Hold nothing back. Carry out your duty. Then I'll consider you truly virtuous."

Few individuals in Khoronzonite history have risen so high from so low as Vasilias Lathi - from a delinquent street urchin in his early youth, he ascended over the course of roughly a decade of war and revolution to the High Marshal of the KVS, second only in military authority to the Emperor himself, as well as the head of the Ministry of War, in charge of long-term strategic planning, military R&D, and coordination between the KVS and other governmental organisations. An ardent militarist with a heavy overseas reputation for wartime criminality earned during his soldiering days, he has enthusiastically assisted the Emperor in carrying out his expansionist ambitions through military strengthening and technological advancements, particularly with regard to bio-construct development.

"Iiiiiiiiiii? Hrrrrrr."

TRBK-P1 "Khimayra" is an enigmatic serpentine creature that serves as Emperor Narcissus' favourite pet. Created when an attempt at making a military bio-construct with extremely potent regenerative abilities didn't go fully as planned, the Emperor decided to keep it around after taking a liking to it, and it to him. It mostly resembles a large hagfish or worm, more or less equal in size to a king cobra. Its skin tone is a very pale pink, with darker mottles and discolourations scattered around its body. The most striking thing about Khimayra's appearance is its eerie lack of immediately visible features - besides a row of six small holes on either side of its neck, its skin is almost completely smooth, with no orifices or objects. At first glance, its head is essentially a blank lump of flesh.

Beneath its smooth exterior, however, Khimayra hides a vast and complex array of grotesque features, which can "melt" in and out of its body without any trace of them existing otherwise. It can form grooves and ridges along its length to assist with climbing, and has three large, round eyes and forked tongues that can emerge individually anywhere on its face. It can rearrange the shape of its head with ease, and within this malleable blob is a gruesome three-jawed mouth lined with rows upon rows of sharp teeth. When opened, five tendrils emerge from the depths of its throat, ending in toothed suction cups like the jawless mouths of lampreys. It possesses an extremely strong bite for a creature of its size, and can use a twisting maneuver similar to crocodiles to rip off large chunks of flesh from its prey. Its mouth tendrils can extent up to a third of its own body length and latch onto targets, digging into their flesh and pulling them towards its jaws. Like a snake, its jaws are capable of expanding to a vast degree to engulf objects much larger than its head. Its body has immense constricting strength, enough to decapitate a person by squeezing their neck, which can further be aided by selective toughening and groove-forming. While it can harden parts of its skin to protect against blows, its greatest defensive feature is its ability to heal wounds at an unnerving pace, growing back entire chunks of flesh within a matter of seconds. Paired with its ability to rearrange its body, it is nigh-indestructible to most conventional weaponry.

Khimayra is a very inquisitive and friendly creature, seeing most humans it encounters as friends to play with. It has some exceptions though - for instance, it heavily dislikes Pariahs and Ghouls, and will attempt to eat them on sight.
