An Inheritance of Stars
A Rouge Trader in the Argylian Expanse
Tanak Valcetti presents himself as a man of refinement for whom the vicissitudes of expeditions into the dangerous Expanse are something ome simply does not speak of. A noble must show himself uncaring of danger, possessed of a savant’s knowledge, and be far above the crude urges that beset lesser individuals. That, at least is the philosophy of the Valcetti lineage. To date it has served them well: centuries of cultured, arms-length politeness and mildly acknowledged respect for the endeavors of others have ensured that Tanak Valcetti has few enemies. Behind the mask of noble courtesy is a courageous, capable man with a genuine love for the finer things in life, and one who expects the best from his retainers. The wealth of the Valcetti family is presently maintained through the steady exploitation of worlds within the Expanse and large investments in trade. Tanak Valcetti and his sons depart into the Argylian Expanse for years at a time, leaving his seneschal to manage his armored estate and investments upon Port Wander.
