Erik Torson is one of the more interesting individuals I met out in Arnami space. He isn’t Arnam at all, for one. He was the commander of a trading fleet from out in Aesiran space that was doing its thing at Arnami Prime when we arrived there. He was some kind of combination of a military, civilian, and family leader. My people compared him to the chieftain of a tribe or clan, with the trading fleet acting as his tribe. I would find out it was far more complicated than that. It was also far simpler, but it took me even longer to find that out. And it’s just as complicated to explain, as it is simple to theorize. So let me just say this. Erik Torson is one of the reasons that Wolfenheim turned out the way it did. Whatever else you hear about him in the future, keep that in mind.
