Void Mistress, Queen of the Seven Deeps
Cardinal Quiro Olranna
Titles: Void Mistress, Queen of the Seven Deeps
Seat of Power: Canopus
Arch-Diocese: Josian Reach
Originally a pilgrim, Quiro joined the church after ‘hearing the call’ of the Saint when she first set foot on Maccabeus Quintus as a girl. Not of noble birth and not even born within the sector, it is a strange path that has led her to don the cardinal’s mantle, one that her allies view as the will of the Emperor and her enemies see as suspicious and unorthodox. Now a venerable woman nearing her third century, Quiro cares little for such talk any more, and she has long ago accepted the stigma, which led her to the cardinalship of the oft forgotten Josian Arch-Diocese. Even though her diocese borders the shining glory of both the Golgenna Reach and the Andrantis Sub-sector, Quiro has a poor domain over which to rule and a constant struggle to prove her importance to the rest of the Sector Synod. In fact behind her back many of her peers think of her as a ‘care-taker’ cardinal, ruling a stretch of void in which the Ministorum only has nominal interest. Despite this perception, however, she is as ambitious and driven as any of her counterparts (common traits in Arch-Diocese Cardinals) and has her own ambitions of power and ideas of how best to increase the Ministorum’s control and influence within the sector.
