Roth Caesenn is a male Libertus who represents the Coruaan sector in the New Republic Senate. A pragmatic, but militaristic senator, Caesenn firmly believes that the Republic should project its power across the Gigaquadrant, hoping to reclaim the prestige of the First Republic of old.
Caesenn is one of the greatest champions of the Republic Military, and became a symbol of resolve against the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus during the darkest days of the Second Great Cyrannus War. One of the few surviving senators of the Fiction:Second Great Cyrannus War/Mou'Cyran Cataclysm, Caesenn emerged as a stalwart ally of his former rival Apollo, and kept the hope of liberty alive during the era of the Occupied Republic.
Roth Caesenn was born to a wealthy family involved in the shipbuilding business on Coruaan. As a young man, he attended the most prestigious institutions in the capital of Thrace, and ultimately became involved in politics, becoming the planet's senator in the New Republic Senate. An admirer of the politics of President Nexarón Valkistair, Caesenn became a member of the Centrist party, and actively campaigned for Valkistair's re-election during the Cyrannian Cold War.
Caesenn was chosen by Valkistair to travel to Aldár in the lead-up to the Battle of the Ecimaex Wall, and was thus off-world when the Empire destroyed the Mou'Cyran system. Despite their political differences, Caesenn wholeheartedly supported Apollo's ascension to the Presidency, and worked closely with him to ensure continuity of government during the opening stages of the Second Great War.
After the First Battle of Coruaan, Caesenn managed to survive the Empire's occupation of the planet, and formed numerous resistance cells to disrupt Imperial rule. Though the planet was ultimately liberated, it soon fell under the sway of the Occupied Republic, once again forcing Caesenn into the shadows, fighting to protect his people from Imperial domination. These efforts ultimately bore fruit in 20 NE, when Caesenn participated in the Second Battle of Coruaan, where he and his forces successfully liberated the planet.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Caesenn is a resolute believer in the principles of the New Cyrannian Republic, but fundamentally believes that these values should be backed up by a mighty starfleet and military. As such, and perhaps due to the special interests present on his homeworld of Coruaan, Caesenn was one of the most anti-Imperial senators, eager to bolster the might of the Republic military in defiance of the Imperial hegemony. During the days of the Second Great War, Caesenn demonstrated his inner convictions and bravery by refusing to bow to the Empire's rule over his world, instead turning to armed rebellion. He did not back away from a fight, and instead led his forces personally, blaster in hand.
