"You have to be perfect every single time Elaine, there is no margin for error. It could be the difference for life and death, and not just for you but for people beneath you one day." - Elaine's Grandmother

In Brief

Elaine von Veritrax was an Tresarian Military Official, she started her career in the Akheton Corporation prior to taking up her cause with the Tresarian government following the sale of Akheton to the Trade Federation, a former member of the Imperial Union. Upon her acceptance and graduation from the Tresarian Academy she was subsequently transferred to the Tresarian Fleet where her past experiences as a member of Akheton's immersive and successful production and construction experiences were tapped into and developed even further. After serving in Tresario, Elaine took to the Empire seeking to dedicate herself to become a permanent fixture in the machine of Imperial effectiveness. Quickly securing a position in the Regional Government, Elaine has attracted the eye of many an officer, for both her efficiency in work and her ability to execute tasks whilst anticipating future needs, resulting in her "being one to keep an eye on."

Early Years

Hapes - Elaines birthplace.


Elaine was born to a moderately powerful Hapan family who relocated when Elaine was young to another world within the Hapes Cluster. There the house slowly expanded its wealth and power under the guide of her paternal grandmother. The success enjoyed by the family was greatly expanded when her father began research and development of a new propulsion system for the monarchy of Naboo. As a result Elaine was again uprooted as a child by her grandmother when their family left the Cluster for Naboo. There her grandmother raised her teaching her the arts of business and warfare in hopes that Elaine would kindle the fire that flows in the veins the same as her ancestors.

Akheton

Elaine's days on Naboo were long for most of her life, her grandmother's had set about training her to ensure her a position of power in the Corporate government that controlled Naboo for later in her life. When Elaine turned 18, her diligence and devotion to excellence in her youth came to fruition as the company was all to eager to take her as an employee driving her to develop factories and production operations Elaine saw lines of production streamlined and made more effective. However the success in Akheton was short lived when the majority shareholders sold to the Trade Federation resulting in the acquisition and subsequent merger of Akheton into the Trade conglomerate.

Arrival to Tresario

Space was cold as ever for Elaine as she lay curled up in her bed on her Starrunner-class Starship Vendrix. It was in hyperspace her new home in Tresario space, from Naboo. She was eager to begin life anew, leaving her old Corporate life behind after Akheton’s board members voted to sell the company to the mighty Trade Federation, Elaine's lucrative position was terminated and she was forced to sell her flat and move onto her starship. She was hours from Bak`rofsen, she had booked a landing site for the next two weeks to find a place to live on the planet. The sudden lurch of the ship was Elaine’s only sign of exiting hyperspace drawing her from her sleep. She stretched and walked to the cockpit as quickly as she could, as she sat in the captain’s chair she could see in front of her a massive array of warships and civilian vessels flying to and fro. Suddenly a shadow came over her ship and a communication request flashed on her dash. Her hands flew over the console expertly securing the line and encrypting it.


Elaine immediately responded and plotted a course for the open space lanes and flew to orbit of Bak`rofsen. As her vessel neared the planet she gasped in awe, two massive Home One cruisers were orbiting the planet side by side in what appeared to be a patrol pattern. After several minutes of securing access to the planet below she descended eventually landing at the landing pad below. Still safely aboard her ship she decided to change and freshen up. Making her way to the refresher she turned on the shower, allowing the hot steamy water to relax her muscles and relieve the tension and stress of the past few weeks. She was home, or rather as close to a home it could be. Exiting the shower, she dressed and exited the ship, the planet surprisingly warm and dry as the air hit her face. She couldn’t help but hope that she would adjust to the planet quickly as she set about exploring.

Arrival to Tresario.


Returning to her ship she repeated this process for several days, discovering the Tresarian Recruiters center, a hospital and several excellent bars and restaurants. Along her travels she had applied to several jobs as well though none of them really were attractive to her, so on the seventh day she decided to stop by the recruiter’s center.

Inside the center was a young human male, barely a few years younger than Elaine, she eyed him curiously he was attractive, with a stern face with dark black hair and brown eyes, he had a well-toned body beneath his uniform that almost seemed one size too small for him, she clucked her tongue trying to decide if that was on purpose or not as he rose to greet her. His hand extended and she grasped it smiling curtly.

Before long Elaine was on her way to the Tresarian University less than a week later.

Her time in the University came easy, physically she was fit and passed each physical test with ease, and her time on the range with her classmates was fun and leisurely for her as she was an excellent shot, establishing near mastery over projectile weapons from an early age under her grandfather’s tutelage. As for her piloting skills she scored decent marks being an already experienced pilot. All around she was pleased to score perfect marks on her final exam. Returning to her ship she boarded it hanging her uniforms and making to orbit to receive transport to her first official mission and be assigned to her first Tresarian ship.

Imperial Academy

Elaine's arrival to Prakith was overwhelming to her sense, the sheer size of the planet and its infrastructure was astounding, never before had she encountered a city planet of such magnitude. She was quickly ushered into a massive hall with hundreds of other Cadets, where she was seated and instructed to wait until summoned. Dozens of droids and staff walked through rows of seats sending and escorting staff to training officers. When at last Elaine's turn came she was directed to an office of Training Officer, Lieutenant Commander (at the time) Mordus Nordstroem. His office to her surprise was empty, he was away from the Academy at the time and was instructing operations and training from afar via hologram. He set her to work quickly, directing her to accomplish a list of tasks among academic studies, striving to maintain the teachings of her upbringing Elaine worked as hard as she could to graduate with honors.

As her lessons began to come to a close a mass of electrical storms triggered a planetary defense network to read the energy signals and require investigation. Elaine, assigned by her training officer was quickly dispatched with a pair of stormtroopers to ensure no civil unrest or hostile action, upon her return she filed an in depth report, documenting onlookers and intelligence gathered during her thorough investigations of the area. Returning to her studies Elaine conducted her finals before graduating with honors and assuming her role in the Regional Government.

Imperial Gala

One of the first Empire wide events Elaine attended in her early career was the Imperial Gala celebrating the rule of Emperor Guinar Ndengin the Undying. Elaine arrived to the palace aboard a JV-7 Delta shuttle in one of her finest dresses. The young officer held her dress as she moved down the ramp of the ship making her way to the checkpoint Elaine presented her ID and invitation with her credentials.

The Lieutenant smiled as he handed back her documents and sent her on her way. Moving through to the steps leading into the Palace, Elaine gazed in wonder at the immense statues of the Emperor. Along the walk way turbolaser batteries, trained on targets ensuring they maintained a good distance from the Palace. Ascending the stairs she came into the main hall and sucked in a sharp breath, the hall was a work of art unto itself and contained more craftsmanship in a single room than she had ever witnessed in her whole life.

Working her way through the hall she encountered Heron Vandroy and happily led him in a curious manner into the gardens. For some time the pair of them chatter before Director Seele arrived accompanied by his close friend and ally Joer Knight. In a brash and almost daring move she dragged the young Prefect Vandroy with her to pay compliments to the venerable duo. The true surprise however was in store for Veritrax as the Director stole her away for a tour of the Palace. Veritrax and Lord Seele passed several retinue of guards and entered into reserved sections of the gardens.

Elaine turned from the roses took at Seele and she smiled at him as she took his arm, allowing herself to once again be guided by him. As they walked through the gardens and towards an exit, she carefully cast a sideways glance at him. This man whom she held onto, along with the Emperors Cherokee and Ndengin, had shared a glorious past which forged the very essence of what the Galactic Empire had become. The schism between the Vodo regime and New Imperial Order was chaotic, but what the trio built from the chaos and the merger of the governments was awe-inspiring and was the fundamental elements of the modern Empire.

The triumvirate and their trusted advisors were not to be trifled with. Elaine raced through her mind about the risk she had taken and her clumsy maneuvering with her introduction to such a powerful figure. Elaine worried she had placed herself in precarious situation with her bold actions when a frightening thought struck her. ‘Oh no! Is he able to sense my thoughts?’ musing over rapid almost thoughtless actions they carried on.

The young Imperial shot a panicked glance at Seele; he wasn’t revealing any hint that he was aware of Elaine’s anxiety as he kept his eyes ahead on the door they were approaching.

Lord Seele led her through the door into vaulted chamber filled with numerous statues of various stones with mixed hues. Seele gestured towards the wondrous collection of carvings and Elaine released his arm as her mouth opened in awe and she walked closer to study these pieces of art in detail. The first statue that drew her attention was an obsidian statuette of a young human mother and child. It was only a foot tall, but the fine detail and life-like pose made it seem like someone had shrunk the two figures after they had been encased in carbonite.

The evening drew on and Elaine like a child in awe wandered with the Director hovering near his side passing from room to room and hall to hall as the party drew down to an end.

The Father, The Sun, And a Rising Metropolis

Elaine arrived to the Regional Government’s offices for her Region with great enthusiasm throwing herself into her work relentlessly. Projects once left unfinished were rapidly seeing completion under her supervision. Engrossed in her belief of the Empire’s political party of COMPNOR she quickly began integrating design ideas from across the Core into the architectural projects she undertook. Her ability to rapidly accomplish tasks quickly drew the attention of various senior officials and with it, increased expectations, ever and the driver of progress she devoted herself to these new standards with renewed fervor.

Rising through the ranks of the Regional Government she grew to appreciate and tolerate the views of several Class B Citizens even pulling a few into her personal staff. She was afforded authority over making plans for the development of the planet ████████, which she unveiled to the refugee leaders fleeing the tyranny of the New Republic amidst a COMPNOR rally.


COMPNOR

Academy Revisited

Elaine’s tact for management and attention to detail rapidly drew the attention of her superiors at the Academy. With the Dean falling into a state of critical illness the Commandant, and senior most authority next to the Minister of Culture for the party of COMPNOR, made Elaine acting Dean. As time passed she performed the duties with fervor, pushing to modernize content and ensure the quality of Imperial training materials were on par with Imperial standards. With her continued advocating for progress she was officially made Dean. Her time as Dean was short as her duties with the Bureau demanded increasing amounts of her time. As a result she abdicated the post nearly a month after assuming it passing the responsibility over to (Assistant) Secretary Arya Solus.

"Ambition without direction can be self-destructive." - Elaine speaking to Recruits at the Imperial Academy.

Signal Amplifier

Leading the Bureau's Surveillance Department meant Elaine monitored news both locally and across the Empire to some extent; if she wasn't writing or editing it for accuracy. As a result of her work part time for the Ministry of Culture and her firm hand on the news networks already existing she was asked to chair the Department by the Ministry, accepting the position she fell into the role with fervor launching a series of campaigns to better capture events around the Empire.

Imperial Security Bureau

Error...


In mid-year 18 Veritrax transferred from the Regional Government to the Imperial Security Bureau. As with standard procedure she was sent to Coruscant’s ISB HQs to begin her probationary period. Her training officer ████████, wasted no time and began to put her through rigorous training. Her training included study on law, policy, risk management and physical training to prep her for both overt and covert operations. She quickly rose to prominence with presentation of both innovative ideas and unorthodox methodology graduating her training and subsequently assuming the post as Regional Officer for the Empires capital, the Emerald Region.

Within the first month in the capital she had effectively gathered Agents and informants she trusted into her Bureau operations seeking to consolidate and set a firm stance on all Bureau operations in the Region. Her strict and often harsh actions quickly brought planets and aristocrats of the core back into line of the Empire’s ideals.

Chief of Surveillance

Impressed with her quick consolidation of the Empire’s law enforcement units in the Emerald Region the Directorate sought to expand her responsibilities and give her dual command, both as Regional Chief and Chief of Surveillance. With fervor she launched an overhaul of the program seeking to create new doctrine and reporting methods while improving operational capacity and improving compartmentalization of information.
