Odelya d'Hanguest is a Khanid capsuleer who appeared flying under the banner of the 1st Praetorian Guard and ZERO HEAVY INDUSTRIES. She is a Holder in the Khanid Kingdom (cf. Duchy of Palas) and lays claim to territories in the present Minmatar Republic.

Early Years[edit]

YC 90 to 95: Childhood[edit]

Odelya Pari Negin Intourtsetseg (“Cherry Blossom”) d’Hanguest was born on Khanid Prime in the spring of YC 90. She is the youngest daughter of the late Duke Isin III d’Hanguest. She has two siblings, her older brother Otgonbayar who was groomed as heir to the d’Hanguest holdings, and her older sister Morijah (born YC 69) who trained to become a lawyer and now executes the daily business of the family. Her mother was an aspiring oceanographer who committed herself to representative duties after marrying her husband. The House of d'Hanguest is of old blood: The genealogical records of the d’Hanguest family trace its roots to the original Reclaiming on Athra. For centuries the lineage produced a plethora of warriors and knights which fought at the front lines of the Reclaiming. Dorji d’Hanguest (21229-21312) was the first d’Hanguest to be elevated to Holder status when Palas VIII, an oceanic planet with an abundance of sea life, but no indigenous human population, was bestowed upon him. After the conquest of the Minmatar Empire and surrounding solar systems, Dorji IV d’Hanguest (22399-22613) became a contender for the Duchy of Lustrevik, even though it is not entirely accesible upon what he and the other contenders based their claims upon. Before Damius III died in 22626 AD it seemed the claims of the d’Hanguest were gaining the upper hand, then again after Velenus IV became Emperor the situation was further obscured. After Khanid II split from the Empire the d’Hanguest were among his devoted followers, and later occupied various positions in the Royal Khanid Navy. As an immediate result of the schism the d'Hanguest lost all tangible claims to Lustrevik. Notwithstanding the family continues to bear the according titles.

YC 96 to 106: Boarding School[edit]

Although d'Hanguest's mother wanted to get her daughter into a SoCT school, her father decided to send her to “St. Anoyia Boarding School for Girls” on Khanid Prime, where most of the d'Hanguest girls received their education for the last centuries. Little is known about her studies there, except that she was accused of “lavish spending” by her schoolmates, and her mother was often called to the headmistress' office. Before receiving a formal degree d'Hanguest dropped out of school by the end of YC 106.

YC 107 to 110: Khanid It Girl[edit]

Turning seventeen d'Hanguest gallivanted throughout the galaxy, spending much of her time in entertainment facilities—allegedly celebrating extravagant and bizarre orgies. Named the First Khanid It-Girl by the Gallente yellow press, she received intense and often suggestive media coverage. Her activities peaked out when she allegedly prepared cocktails from stolen Nidupadian Yorak Eggs, Quafe and Thukker Whiskey and had it drunken from her body.While she was gathering crowds of young followers on the Crystal Boulevard in Caille, the news became a major disturbance to her family. Several attempts to force her back to the Kingdom through diplomatic channels failed. Some claim that it was only when she run out of money and the Gallente banks would not hand out new loans to her, that she returned to her family on Khanid Prime. Others reported that Khanid Mashtori abducted her and brought her home. According to d’Hanguest herself it was a vision of St. Tetrimon, who during a drugged night in the Glittering Dream commanded her to change her life by revealing the treasures of faith to her, that made her return to the Kingdom.

Capsuleer Years[edit]

YC 110 to 112: Imperial Academy and War Academy[edit]

Back on Khanid Prime d'Hanguest was medically examined since her family was alerted that Odelya might have abused neurotoxic drugs and appetite suppressants while in Caille. In the process it was discovered that she was fully pod compatible and her father send her to enrol in the Imperial Academy a few days later. After only one year of training d'Hanguest gained her pod license—and it is rumoured that this had more to do with contacts than efforts. Having never been to the proper Empire before, d’Hanguest was intrigued by its culture, but at the same struggled with grasping the sometime devious and excessively complicated social mechanisms that are different from that of the Kingdom.

After graduating d’Hanguest joined the War Academy, a capsuleer corporation formed by former mercenaries. The War Academy provided combat training for young pilots and was also involved in anti-piracy operations in the Bleak Lands and Heimatar. Since the corporation was based in the Minmatar Republic, with its headquarters in Lustrevik, d’Hanguest tried to establish contacts to the Republic Justice Department  to gather archival evidence about her family’s old claims. Being mocked for being a “reactionary slaver” d’Hanguest lacked the skill to deal with what she considered to be “senseless tribal primitives”, and her efforts remained substantially unsuccessful. This experience also shaped her views on Minmatar Tribal Society which she deeply distrusts and considers as centuries behind time. Nevertheless she earned the respect of her multi-ethnic corp members for becoming an accomplished combat pilot.

YC 112 to 113: The 24th Imperial Crusade[edit]

File:Book of Prayers and Devotions.jpg
The Book of Prayers was praised for its “righteousness” by many.

In YC 112 d'Hanguest joined the 1st Praetorian Guard which was part if the 24th Imperial Crusade. She rushed through the ranks and lifted the spirits with her solemn and juvenile passion. During this time d'Hanguest also took various assignments from the Theology Council and was noted as being extremely zealous in her approach to all religious matters, bringing her into conflict with her superiors. In an environment which mostly consisted of citizens of the Empire d'Hanguest took an often uncompromising, traditional stance and became “more Amarrian than the Amarr.” In YC 112 she founded the Khanid Publishing House Ltd. which aimed at providing the faithful with spiritual and encouraging literature. She released her “Book of Prayers and Devotions for the Reclaimer” on 112.09.20,<ref>http://oldforums.eveonline.com/?a=topic&threadID=1387055</ref> and dedicated it to the Empress and the martyred High Deacon of the Theology Council, Mervan Moritok. The manual was praised for its “righteousness” among loyalist capsuleers, while at the same time Elsebeth Rhiannon criticised the book for making references to the Day of Darkness.<ref>http://community.eveonline.com/news/news-channels/eve-online-news/loyalist-capsuleers-publish-amarr-influenced-prayer-book/</ref> In turbulent times and after the sacred defense of Arzad, d'Hanguest was appointed head persecutor of a military tribunal against her friend Tobias Primus, who was accused, and found guilty, of treason. The verdict captured broad attention among the loyalist community.<ref>http://oldforums.eveonline.com/?a=topic&threadID=1415111</ref>

After closing the case d’Hanguest inexplicably disappeared for some months and there are unsustained rumours that she suffered from psychiatric disorders due to long periods of stress and war fatigue.<ref>“[…] got a message from Morijah d’Hanguest, the sister of Decurio Odelya d'Hanguest, that she did send our Decurio to a remote star system and as she putted in her own words ‘put her under psychiatric observation and spiritual guidance of three nuns’ […] has had no conformation from Navy Intelligence […] upholds any truth but even the words written can't be accepted. […] ordered Morijah d'Hanguest to release […] from captivity.” Intercepted communiqué from Legatus Gangleri of the Praetorian Guard.</ref> Finally, after one year and two months with around one thousand enemiy hulls destroyed, d'Hanguest left the 1st Praetorian Guard in the rank of Decurio. She joined ZERO HEAVY INDUSTRIES, which had become a celebrated leader of the Amarr Militia. Soon she earned her Kepi Blanc and became a trusted Legionnaire. During this time she was also noted for being one of the first crusaders wearing a variety of Noble Exchange fashion and was rumoured to be a close friend of Darmad Cirsan, the late CEO of NeX .

YC 113 to 115: Retreat and Return[edit]

When leaving the Praetorian Guard d'Hanguest ranked Optio

YC 113 became a real annus horribilis for d’Hanguest. While on patrol duty in Kourmonen, d’Hanguest received news of the passing of both her father and brother. During a big game hunting trip on a jungle world in Khanid low sec, the two were ambushed by a group of feline carnivores and heavily wounded. Although the wounds were not immediately life threatening, the dispatched medical rescue party arrived too late due to atmospheric storms. The duke and his heir died seven hours later. Since her older sister was under oath not to claim any titles, the duchy passed on to Odelya. Returning to Khanid Prime were the late duke and his son were buried, d'Hanguest was invested in the full regalia as Duchess of Palas and Lustrevik. Two days later d'Hanguest withdrew from the capital for meditations at a private institute attached to the Order of St. Tetrimon in the Parses System. She retired the militia as a Divine Commodore and founded Khanid-damashii, a group that promotes the warrior spirit and religious zeal of the Khanid people and aims at regaining the purity of ancient times.

In YC 113.11 d’Hanguest’s sister and the family lawyers disowned her in a public stunt which came to be known as the “holo reel affair”. While the duchess was inhibited from accessing her estates, and exercising any of her clerical and governing functions, her rightful entitlement to her holdings was later confirmed. There is little public knowledge on the exact circumstances, but it seems that the d’Hanguest sisters have achieved reconcilement in mid YC 115 with most of the former family lawyers publicly executed. A Sukuuvestaa Corporation contractor, who witnessed the executions, describes the events in his travelogue: “It was a terrible sight, even by Amarrian standards. The Duchess was seated under a heavily ornamented baldachin, wearing a splendid priestly costume. In front of her around twenty old men were forced to accuse each other of the most unspeakable atrocities. The Duchess then read out the death sentences, and, only after prolonged torture, the poor old men were drowned in the sea, one by one. Their naked corpses were put on display and marked with the sign of treason, which they call a Molokh.”

In YC 114.08 d’Hanguest rejoined 1PG which had become a member of the CVA. In a leaked statement from Legatus Gangleri<ref>“The Legatii of the Guard installed d’Hanguest in the rank of Optio where she will act as member of the Command Staff. She has furthermore been given full responsibility over Munus Conquisitoris and Munus Publicus Nuntius and as such installed Praefectus Munus Conquisitoris and Praefectus Munus Publicus Nuntius. Optio d’Hanguest will lead the recruitment and propaganda […] the last months Odelya was on special assignment in the Khanid Ministry of […] successfully purging it from alleged Blood Raider sympathisers. While she will continue to close a complicated case for the Ministry in the coming two months, she will […] her presence to her offices in Khanid Prime and Amarr […].”</ref> it is implied that she was on special assignment for an undisclosed Khanid Ministry, supposedly purging it from Blood Raider cultists. Upon rejoining d’Hanguest was appointed Optio and made responsible for recruitment and propaganda. It however appears that she never actively resumed her duties and in 115.07 d'Hanguest put on her Kepi Blanc again and reentered ZERO HEAVY INDUSTRIES as a Legionnaire.

YC 115 to today: Radicalisation, Abdication, and “Glorious Restoration”[edit]

File:Odelya115b.jpg
By the end of 115 YC d’Hanguest sported rather unorthodox clothing

In late YC 115 theological debates about the legitimacy of the Theology Council and the Moral Reforms turned into a heated controversy between d’Hanguest and members of the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris. Gaven Lok’ri, Lord Admiral of PIE Inc., put d’Hanguest’s name on a “list of heretics,” which was considered to be an aggressive act not only against herself, but the Khanid Kingdom by d’Hanguest. The unceasing exchange of hostilities, the failure of diplomacy, and the rejection to settle the case by a singular trial by combat subsequently escalated into broader combat. War was unofficially announced by Jude Kopenhagen, a mercenary leader who was temporarily charged with aiding the Ducal Palasian Squadron [DPS] in combatting PIE Inc. The formal declaration of war authorised and instructed “all commanders of the Ducal Palasian Squadron [DPS], its attached mercenary forces, and all captains of civilian vessels [...] to subdue, seize and take any armed vessel of the Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris which shall be found within the jurisdictional limits of the Duchy of Palas, or elsewhere.”<ref>https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=4016093#post4016093</ref> Shortly afterwards a bounty of 500.000.000 ISK was anonymously placed on d’Hanguest’s head. The conflict ended, with minimal losses on both sides, on the last day of YC 115. It was this very day that d'Hanguest issued on instrument of abdication placing her sister Morijah d'Hanguest on the throne of the Duchy, while d'Hanguest took refuge in a monastery belonging to the Order of St. Tetrimon. It was there that she experienced another apparition in which St. Tetrimon ordered her “to make war upon your enemies and reclaim what is justly yours.” <ref>https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=360918</ref> In an act which is recorded in Palas as the “Glorious Restauration” d'Hanguest reassumed her functions as holder of Palas. At the same time a diarchic structure of power was introduced: While d'Hanguest assumed the role of the Begum of Palas, her sister became the Khatun of Palas.

In YC 116 d’Hanguest announced “that the Duchy of Palas will provide 100.000.000 ISK and the honorary title of Topoteretes of the Ducal Palasian Squadron [DPS] to the first capsuleer of Amarrian faith who will provide us with a corpse of Nauplius and salvaged parts from one of his vessels” which was later extended to members of the eight Caldari mega corporations. Nauplius, a commoner who served under d’Hanguest in the Praetorian Guard, had become a controversial figure among capsuleers who almost univocally denounced his mass killings of Minmatar slaves and rejected his claims of prophethood. It were Jude Kopenhagen and Kohiko Sun who seized Nauplius’ frozen corpse which was later put on public display in the White City of Palas. In a posthumous trial that has been called “sensational” by the Gutter Press<ref>https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=367131</ref> d'Hanguest sentenced the corpse to death. Shortly after the trial d’Hanguest joined the Order of St. Severian. The order subscribes to a Khanid influenced chiliastic cult centred around the anticipated return of Severian Astur. Many believe the order to be a splinter group of the Order of St. Tetrimon, some argue that it developed independently during the Moral Reforms, yet others believe it actually invented its tradition. While almost nothing is is known about the structure of the order, or d’Hanguest’s role in it, Elusenian exchange students<ref>https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=3811110</ref> reported that in three Palasian shrines Severian officiants replaced priests who belonged to Khanid Orthodox Church. It appears that d'Hanguest spent months studying the doctrines and texts of the order in a one of their hidden congregations in Khanid low sec.

YC 117: Reconciliation and Renewed Political Activism[edit]

Returning from

Political and Religious Views[edit]

Under the guidance of the Order of St. Tetrimon, her family priests, and experiences with Amarrian capsuleers and officials, d’Hanguest grew more and more critical of the Amarr Empire. She has privately raised questions about the legitimacy of Jamyl Sarum being Empress and publicly criticised the Emancipation Decree, agreeing with many of the refusards’ arguments. She was equally alarmed by Yonis Ardishapur’s reforms in the Ammatar Mandate and has expressed concerns that further reconciliation with the Empire might devastate Khanid society and its achievements, restrict the power of its holders and reduce the Kingdom to a mere lookalike of an Amarr province. In accordance with this, d’Hanguest has expressed strong anti-Unionist views. For her unionists are nothing short of being traitors to King and Kingdom.

While studying history and theology during her monastic stays with the Order of St. Tetrimon, d'Hanguest became convinced that the Kingdom has achieved a favourable status which resembles the state of the pre-Moral Reforms Empire. She favours a model of government which would reinstate the Council of Apostles, disband the Theology Council, limit the power of the Emperor and extend that of local holders, abolish the Succession Trials and again select the Emperor, who would serve as the first among equals, from a serving member of the Council of Apostles by a two-thirds vote. For d’Hanguest Heideran V, Heideran VII, and the Theology Council are the epitomes of moral decay and heresy. The indifference which many Amarrians show towards the Reclaiming is also one of d'Hanguest's main concerns. In her view it is the duty of every believer to fight against threats to the Amarrian people until total supremacy has been achieved. She also noted for holding Emperor Armani I in high esteem, calling him “the most misunderstood Emperor in history”.

Physical Appearance[edit]

In comparison to her height d'Hanguest appears to be skinny and fragile. Her clone age is approximately twenty years old, but looks younger. She usually wears uniforms while on duty and for official occasions. In private she is often dressed overly casual. Due to an allergy to cotton, which most d’Hanguests suffer from, d'Hanguest has the habit of wearing clothes made of velvet, silk, furs, or synthetic fibres.

Styles and Titles[edit]

Odelya d'Hanguest's full title is Her Grace Odelya Pari Negin Intourtsetseg of House d'Hanguest, Begum of Palas and Lustrevik, Despoina of Dorji and Chitarus, Lady of The Isles, Keeper of the Key to the Hall of the Forty Columns, Porphyrogennete, Hyperprotopansebaste, First Hierarch and Guardian of the Khanid Orthodox Church in Palas, Bishop of Lustrevik, Megas Doukissa of the Ducal Palasian Squadron, Servant of God and King. She is properly addressed as Your Grace.

The honourifics Porphyrogennete and Hyperprotopansebaste were introduced during the reign of Queron I (21310-21346) by Armani I d’Hanguest (21312-21400), yet their origins are enigmatic. On rare occasions also the honorific Hyperprotopansebastehypertatekarissa has been used by officials of Palas. Albeit appearing to be another title the designation Lady of The Isles is a honorific related to the isles of Palas VIII. The title Keeper of the Key to the Hall of the Forty Columns links with the holdings of the d'Hanguest on Khanid Prime which are centred around a pavilion with twenty columns reflected in a large pool, the Palais d'Hanguest or Hall of the Forty Columns.

Between 113 to 115 d’Hanguest hold the style and title of Her Grace Odelya Pari Negin Intourtsetseg of House d'Hanguest, Duchess of Palas and Lustrevik, Lady of The Isles, Keeper of the Key to the Hall of the Forty Columns, Porphyrogennete, Hyperprotopansebaste, First Hierarch and Guardian of the Khanid Orthodox Church in Palas, Bishop of Lustrevik, Megas Doukissa of the Ducal Palasian Squadron, Servant of God and King. And from her birth to 113 she was addressed as Lady Odelya Pari Negin Intourtsetseg of House d'Hanguest, Porphyrogennete.

Quotes about Odelya d'Hanguest[edit]

“Odelya is quite an enigma. She has driven many to extremes of ecstasy. She will be remembered for generating ecstasy of mind, and to Duty and Reverence, amongst Loyalists in her rather extra-ordinary ‘Book of Prayers and Devotians for the Reclaimer’, and ecstasy of body amongst those of limited enlightenment through her other more infamous endeavours. She has always displayed a deep understanding of important matters. The Empire stands stronger in her ability to counter the arguments of the poorly- enlightened, and lift the zeal of those in whom the Empire trusts. I count her my friend, and one in whom I would entrust all. I have little doubt the Empire shares that view.”—Tobias Primus, Laudate Domini, YC 113

“I’d turn lesbo for Odelya!”—Zero2espect, ZERO HEAVY INDUSTRIES, YC 113

“...the arch-separatist d'Hanguest...”—Zelarrs Elkoth, PIE Inc., YC 115

“Odelya d'Hanguest is a heretic, and King Khanid II is a rude king.”—Valerie Valate, Church of The Crimson Saviour, YC 115

“You are a disgrace to your heritage. You are not Amarr, you are fallen. A failure. A pathetic disappointment of the vision of God. Your actions are a blight on the Amarrian institution of nobility and an insult to everyone who carries the responsibilities and titles of a Holder. Your noble ancestors would be appalled to see what their descendant has wrought.”—Gaven Lok’ri, PIE Inc., YC 115

“Wow. She's crazier than Rodj.”—Anslo, Scope Works, YC 115
