After you read about all of them, I will go on to present some of the design choices that led us to create these groups and how we envision them working "together". But you'll have to wait a few days for that.
Grofka Vlaklova’s Entourage
Relation: The Grofka and her entourage are known for their loyalty to Tsarina Anayanka and the Arman Protectorate.
Modus Operandi: Act now; repent at leisure. The Grofka is aggressive and forward moving, requiring her agents to look for opportunities and seize them before all others. They seek to advance the will of the Tsarina and expand Arman influence across Exodus.
Leader: Grofka Polina Vlaklova comes from a scandal-ridden family (her sister married a Dominion man). For the past few years, the Grofka has served as an unofficial envoy of the Tsarina. The Grofka is quick to seize the initiative and prefers offense to defense. The Grofka is neutral in alignment.

Lady Elsae is lawful neutral in alignment.
