The Darrix Clan hails from a remote southeastern city in the Draconic Empire. Its members are known for their intelligence and dedication. Most gravitate toward administrative duties, but some pursue other interests. Crakon Darrix’s choice to join the Imperial Legions was unusual, but her clan knew she would go far.
There faith in her has been confirmed. Crakon Darrix is the Governor-General of Shrike, appointed by the Emperor himself to oversee the imperial annexation of Shrike and its territories. New of her appointment came as a shock to some of her peers; they do not believe Crakon is hard enough to oversee the annexation and supress resistance. The Emperor and the High Council know better.
Crakon Darrix is a female of intelligence, poise and pragmatism. She knows that the real challenge is not holding onto Shrike and its territories, but it is rather to win the hearts and minds of the inhabitants. To that end, she governs the region with an even hand, enforcing imperial law while trying to convince Shrike’s residents of the benefits of imperial citizenship.
Her arguments have not been completely dismissed. Trade is starting to flow into Shrike again, bringing commerce into the Brightcoin District. The restrictions on the University have been lightened, although Crakon is quick to quash any attempt at rabble-rousing or incitement to rebellion among its students or faculty. She has reached out to the Archchancellor, the local priests and even some of the more receptive local nobility, attempting to draw them together into an informal advisory committee. This last has met with mixed results.
Charming and intelligent, Governor Crakon is a loyal imperial citizen and a soldier. She prefers subtlety but can be brutal when necessary. Imperial law is harsh and Crakon has no qualms about dispensing it. This has not made her popular in certain quarters of the city.
Fortunately, Crakon has the wise counsel of her aasimar companion, Areven Logos, to assist her in her duties.
