The Empire is run by Majestrix Kyia, an immortal nymph-like creature called a nexus spirit. Kyia’s essence is bound to the Citadel, an arcology 1500 meters high that sits in the heart of Metamor City. While the Citadel is her real “body”, she can also manifest herself in a human form, and it is in this persona that she interacts with the people of her realm.
Kyia is rumored to be as old as the Earth itself, and she claims that the Creator of the universe charged her with one mission: she must protect and care for the mortal races, but she must be careful not to violate their free will. She has a tremendous amount of power, but she uses it sparingly, and her human form cannot move beyond the bounds of Metamor City.
