Norris Aella Aledon
Norris Aella Aledon, Duke of Regina.
Norris was a second son, and had no expectation of becoming a duke. He was enjoying a successful career in the Imperial Navy, having attained the rank of Commander with Imperial Naval Intelligence. However, the accidental death of his older brother William in 1097, during what would turn out to be their father's last year of life, forced Norris rapidly into the unaccustomed role as the impending heir. As Norris was unmarried and had no heir, one precaution that Norris was convinced to take during this period was the creation of a clone which he insisted be female. This clone is Seldrian Aledon, still his heir.
Norris acceded to the Dukedom of Regina in 1098, but it was not until the Fifth Frontier War was won thanks to his predictions and forethought in requisitioning reinforcements before the fact from Emperor Strephon that his reputation as a leader of the first rate was established.
