“Borealis is not like your usual galaxy, where most pirates and thugs serve no one but themselves. No, in this galaxy, they have a maximum authority they would never dare contesting. And that is the Wranploer General. Outside, a leader of an empire of brutes. But inside, a tyrant who wishes to make room for his "master race" to take over.”
- - Unknown
Volim Thravra was a Wranploer dictator who served as the founder of the Wranploer Legion and later as one of the ultimate leaders of the Borealis Consortium Network. The most wanted criminal in the Borealis Galaxy's modernity, a mix between a space pirate and a tyrant emperor, Volim sought to dominate the entirely of his home galaxy, destroying those who opposed him and ruling over the survivors with an iron fist with his Wranploer race serving as the masters of the stars.
A stubborn believer of the superiority of the Wranploer, Volim was the arch-enemy of the Zoles Imperium and did all in his power to oppose them and their quest for utopia. Using his military might and influence in the galaxy's underground, he sought the annihilation of all who stood in his way, and to this day, many remember him as one of the gravest threats to Borealis's stability in modern history.
General Volim's earliest known reports come from the creation of the Wranploer Legion, almost 2 thousand years before the modern age, after he had reformed the former Empire of Vijaha into the Legion with the enslavement and indoctrination of other similar-minded races. General Volim planned the Legion to become the masters of Borealis via a galaxy-wide war known as the First Borealis Galactic War, where the Legion caused massive chaos while scavenging from the remains of their fallen enemies.
However, a force known as the "Polar Crystal Alliance", led by the Zoles Imperium, waged a campaign against the Wranploer Legion, defeating it and denying it from its plan of dominating the galaxy. In the attack on the Wranploer's capital, Volim was thought to have been killed; however, he was later confirmed to have survived. About 890 years ago, General Volim was captured by King Mirras III and taken to Planet Mirras, where he was subjected to a bizarre experiment involving a mysterious being in his head. This event traumatized Volim, causing him to fear the Grox since then.
First Wranploer War
Durng the First Wranploer War, Volim watched as the Legion came in conflict with the United Lanat Empire after being "employed" by a mysterious individual. Seeing the ULE was much more powerful than them, Volim employed help from the Seagon, which gave them a technological advantage. However, the ULE got their own allies in the Niaka Special Forces, who knew the weakspots of the Legion and Seagons due to their experience.
Volim eventually gave up after the loss of an important shipyard planet, and confronted his "employer", Lino. Revealing to have sent spies to learn about him, Volim gave away Lino's location to the ULE in enchange of a truce between the Legion and the powerful Tralor empire.
Clash of the Crimelords
During the Clash of the Crimelords, General Volim went to war with rival Falrik Zaarkhun. At the end of the war, however, Volim joined forces with Zaarkhun, as they decided it was much more productive to join forces than for one force to take over, as Consortium had things the Legion didn't, and the Legion had things the Consortium didn't. The result was the Borealis Consortium Network, which Volim was a secret member of.
Second Borealis Galactic War
Volim would spend the early years of the Second Borealis Galactic War focused on consolidating the Consortium Network's power and expanding its borders, content to leave matters of civil administration to Falrik Zaarkhun. The Wranploer was greatly displeased by what he interpreted was Zaarkhun imposing the Consortium Network upon him, though he played along due to seeing the short-term benefits of its existence. Even so, he spent the time secretly pondering on how to eventually remove Falrik Zaarkhun from the picture.
Volim saw the rise in supernatural activity in the galaxy as a problem. He ordered his forces to combat the likes of the Vague and the Devourer's Chosen but suffered great losses to them, often finding a way to blame Zaarkhun for it. He would serve as a head of the operation known as "March of Liberty", where he led the forces of the Wranploer into a direct attack on the Zoles homeworld of Zoleia, but was ultimately defeated. With the rise of the times anomalies instigated by the Vyro'Ralza, Volim was forced to join forces with a reborn Polar Crystal Alliance for the sake of ending the supernatural threats once and for all, growing an intense hatred for Arkarixus in the process.
Following the defeat of the Borealis Grox Empire, Volim and Falrik Zaarkhun greatly expanded the Consortium Network's influence, but their relationship grew increasingly more strained. The Polar Crystal Alliance took advantage of this and launched a covert misinformation campaign into the Consortium Network, spreading dissent and false rumours that Falrik Zaarkhun intended to betray him soon. Volim would fall for it and have Zaarkhun killed when he was cornered by the Alliance, and proceed to order a hostile takeover of all of the Heeyorian's assets, declaring himself as the only ruler of a reborn Wranploer Legion; this backfired as those loyal to Zaarkhun rebelled, leading to a civil war in the Consortium Network.
The Alliance proceeded to launch a grand campaign against the Wranploer, culminating in Volim defending his homeworld of Vijaha from an Alliance fleet. The General was ultimately defeated by Arkarixus, and perished after being thrown out of his capital ship's airlock.
While he is dead, Volim Thrava left a terrible legacy behind him; many Wranploer warlords sought to emulate his tyranny, though most would be stomped out by the Polar Crystal Alliance in the following years. His actions in life ensured the Wranploer species would remain forever vilified. Meanwhile, some whisper the General's soul ended up in Insomnia, the Chaos realm of the Xhodocto known as Santorakh; none know how or why he ended up there, but it is said he is now a permanent guest to the Mad God's table.
Volim appeared the same as a normal Wranploer, except he wore an large, heavy military outfit to represent his authority. He also had many scars from battle, and many mechanical implants, signifying his many fights of ages. Volim's most notable implant was his right eye, lost during the First Borealis War. Volim was also considerably large, being almost twice taller than a normal Wranploer. His large size was attributed to the fact Wranploer never stop growing with age.
Volim had the mind of a cruel thief. He did not care for what happens to others, as long as he was benefited somehow. He didn't show compassion for anyone, not even for other Wranploer. Volim's general attitude was grumpy and selfish, and he had rarely ever shown respect or admiration for another individual, for he believed none could be equals to him. It was also nigh-impossible to gain Volim's trust; it is said he never held true friendships.
Volim was noted for incredible strength, empowered through series of mechanical implants which allowed him to overpower Loron in melee combat. He used several weapons, and was also equipped with several cybernetic implants which gave him his special abilities as well as give him an unlimited lifespan. Volim was outfitted with specialised nanomachines, including those in the Zaarkhun System, which he had command of with Falrik Zaarkhun, which added to his unlimited lifespan, as well as improve his all-round strength. Volim's weapon of choice was an Infantry Particle Blaster and a subatomic disruptor, more powerful than those of other infantry, which caused a slow and painful death to his foes. In addition, he used laser-tipped blades with powerful venom to immobilize.

“Do not call yourself a general. Do not even call yourself a warrior. You are worthy of neither, and your arrogant behaviour only spells worse days for the Consortium. It would be better off if I killed you and Falrik took your place; a systematic thinking leader like him is better than one whose leadership is built on ego.”
“General Volim has a respectable past; for someone born in fortune, he does have a lot of experience of tougher times. As a warrior and a leader, he has my respect.”
