I will be updating this thread with any future stories I put up.

Relevant Characters

Summary

Suha Raibuya


The literal cheery face of the spike in economic progress in Venal, Suha Raibuya is both a devout loyalist to the Guristas and devout teacher of her own interpretation of Caldari Wayism. Going by the name ‘Windchime Wayism’, Suha is a self-proclaimed Guru that sees it as her spiritual mission to enlighten others in her spirituality. Ontop of that, she’s also the brainchild and owner of the whole Prosperity Network and eagerly works to find new ways to improve the quality of life in the region of Venal.

Avio Yaken


The Capsuleer muscle and representative of the Venal Prosperity Network, Avio Yaken was a firmly aimless mercenary turned diehard loyalist and industrialists thanks to the imminent relationship he shares with Suha Raibuya. While clearly wielding most of the power and influence in shaping 6NJ8-V Into a regional trade hub and bankrolling a majority of the Network’s programs, Avio seems to volunteeringly play a role as a second in command under Suha’s leadership.

Utatis Parinen


Head director of the Venal Prosperity Agency, Utatis Parinen is a disgraced Dread Guristas commander whose last shot at redemption is to act as the Guristas’ own spy and Suha’s potential executioner if the upstart becomes too ambitious. Utatis is a coldblooded and jaded professional with a tendency to indulge in ruthless methods to achieve a desired result. While to the Guristas he’s their man on the inside, to Suha he’s a trusted confidant and someone she relies on to carry out her dirty work.

Mumo Lang


Mumo Lang is the skittish and docile Executive Officer of the Prosperous Venal Depository. Her past experiences are traced back to Syndicate space acting as a personal accountant in the Intaki Bank for several wealthy Syndicate families. She would later be blacklisted from the bank after a debated incident of her either mishandling her client’s funds due to incompetency and being ousted or intentionally sabotaged her clients out of petty revenge. Either way, out of a job and unable to work for any other bank in New Eden, she lands a job running Suha’s newest institution to help bring economic prosperity to Venal.
