"I serve the islands with my passion" - Pacifica
Pacifica is the current Speaker and Head of Congress of the United Island States of AHSCA and is also considered the ad idem head of Government as she's also oversees the various Offices of Government alongside the Duchess, Marcella Villa. Being from Corona Island, she has a mononymous name .Pacifica is a member of The National Islander Party though has previously subscribed to the National Liberal Party.
Pacifica was born in the closing days of the war to her parents in a small hut on Corona Island where she lived out her early childhood working their small little substance farm. Despite not being native Nigren her family was always heavily involved in Corona culture and life. Her father a veteran of the unification war was a village council in her little village of Vento while she and her mother worked their fields daily.
Growing up around her father and many veterans of the war, Pacifica had a strong desire to serve in the nation's militia and she enlisted at age 13 in 2009. Her time in the militia was served taking care of minor violent conflicts, anti-piracy efforts and combating a growing human trafficking problem. She also served aboard passenger and merchant ships traveling abroad as security.
When the Militia was dissolved and reorganized as the Defense Forces and Police service, Pacifica was offered a chance to join but she declined instead wanting to pursue a family. Unable to find a special mate she still had a desire to raise a child. She returned to her birth village Pacifica began a small farm of her own to support her and her newborn child all while keeping up with the politics of her home village. Upon the resignation of Former Head of Congress, Mikela Olaff, whom is now serving as an ambassador abroad, Pacifica was urged by friends in the village to consider filling the vacancy. Pacifica wasn't going to at first, assuming Duchess Villa would fill the position with a handpicked person. Once it was announced a special national election would be held, Pacifica again was encouraged to run this time Pacifica accepted feeling she would be good for the job.
Upon submitting herself for candidacy, Pacifica was broached with support by the Merchant Guild of Leuda from The Selkie. The guild sent Ida Feic to help and support Pacifica in her bid for office. Pacifica described it as a fond experience working with Ida and considers her invaluable in helping her achieve her goals. Pacifica did offer to grant Feic honorary citizenship, a request she respectfully declined but was able to grant her a lifetime passport to the UIS for future visits.
