And here’s Louander’s partner Maclin Jarno, the primary central character of Theos Ke Basilea. He will be embroiled in the momentum of events that are far greater than he, events and changes kicked off in Theos Ke Polemos. Indus, like Polemos is caught in the winds of massive change and he and his fellow I.P.I.O. officers begin to see the strangeness though the caseload that begins to cross their desks. These guys end up investigating the Lovecraftien elements that creep into the story. All the I.P.I.O. officers have Taedus use systems to assist them in their duties, that means they all have a taedus sendai combat mecha partnered with them, the work is too dangerous otherwise. Unlike FOILs which are large combat sendai frames piloted by a human inside, taedai are actually smaller than humans and psychically bonded with the partner. Maclin is a character with many secrets and mysterious ties to another character in the Theos arc.
