Darineb Khria possesses a genius-level intellect and some ability of projective empathy: that is, he is able (to some degree) to force emotional states on others. He rose to prominence in early studies of genetics, and was the first to isolate several important Human gene combinations, including that controlling eidetic memory. Khria died in the Terran year AD 2069.
Khria's body was frozen in liquid nitrogen at the time of his death. In TE 348, his body was taken to Borshall, where his brain was salvaged and placed in a mechanical shell. Darineb Khria survived the dissolution of the Terran Empire and reappeared periodically in Human history, notably on the worlds Terexta, Dunsinane, Neordan and Gotlan. He took a key role in the Gotlanian War of AD 3041-43, as well as the destruction of BDA Tr#ska in AD 4635.
By 5500 CE, Khria had built up a shadowy kingdom of Human worlds: by a combination of political influence, economic might and religious authority, he had effectively become the ruler of over fifty planets.
