Diplomate/ Member of Silverhold Secret Service (SSS) and new head of Project Dawn
Harren has spent most of his adult life trying to live up to the accomplishments of his father Thorold Xanthus Founder of project Dawn, accomplished undercover agent, and a seat on Her majesties high councile. Project Dawn was a simple enough concept, Agents were sent all over silverhold from the largest city to the most backwater location to scout for exceptionally skilled children. Be it a progeny at piano playing, a naturally skilled engineer, a mathematical genius, a child exuding phycic or force powers, someone skilled at fighting or athletics, or even a exceptionally quick or clever mischief maker, all were candidates for project Dawn. The agents would then contact the families of the gifted children and tell them that they were part of an education agency that would help the child develop their abilities further on top of their regular education. living arrangements would be provided for the families to move to the capital if the family agreed and a gag order was signed by all members of the family to ensure that they did not tell anyone outside the family about the project. These measures were taken to ensure that the the children remained happy and not resentful of their situation. The project then trained them and gave them the resource to pursue their raw talent unhindered. The project was kept to secret from all outworlders and even from most of the council except for Thorold and the queen herself.
Harren was admitted into the project for his exceptional skill at unarmed combat but unlike the other children he had more duties to attend to. As the son of the queens most trusted adviser he was required also to study politics and provide protection to the daughter-Heir. Thus Harrens life had very little free time in it and he soon learned the habit of being a workaholic. His duty of guarding the princess on excursions became more relaxing for him than the rest of the obligations however. Queen Mira was a fair ruler and thus there were not many people on silverhold that would try to harm the royal family. Also the Daughter-Heir was only 2 or 3 years younger than himself. She was scared of him at fist with his stern face, cold demener and his abnormal height for his age. The turning point came when she was out on one of her Ice Dancing training sessions. Harren had had a particularly full week and his training had gone long into the evening allowing him little sleep. As he stood guard at the edge of the frozen pond she was practicing he dozed off. He awoke to a armload of snow dumped down the back of his shirt. With the most unmanly yelp he had ever heard come out of his own mouth he leaped onto the ice and half slipped almost into the middle of the lake before realizing what was going on. Standing on the shore was Sarah Giggling at his silly display, hands covered in snow. “that’s what you get for falling asleep on the guard” she said between bursts of mirth. Forgetting that he was supposed to be her bodyguard momentarily he slipped his way to shore and threw a snowball at her. It hit her square in the forehead. She stood there frozen with a deathly shocked expression on her face. He suddenly realized what he had done and was about run over and apologize when a ball of snow caught him in his own face. Laughing she had retreated into the gardens before he could throw more at her. The snowball fights and other games were common from that day on and he found himself looking forward to his guard duty, though he never let his vigilance slip even while they were playing.
On his 14th birthday he was allowed to join the council members in there meetings and learned more about interplanetary politics. after a year of this he was even able to suggest things that his father considered voicing at the council meetings. The assassination on Queen Mira happened during his martial arts training. One of his fathers men had entered the training area and said that all members of project dawn were to be evacuated to a more secure location. When harren asked why the man had replied that the queen and the Daughter-Heir had been assassinated and alliance ships were inbound, It was his fathers orders that project dawn remain a secret. It might be one of the only hopes the planet may have of ever having freedom from the core worlds. Harren was greif stricken by the loss of his friend and future queen but his father had taught him that emotions have a time and a place so he shut those thoughts out and began making ready to leave.
Harren spent the next few years in hiding he eventually got the news that his father had died but he had managed to Save Sarah Imperialus and get her off the planet. He was now the leader of project dawn The news brought mixed emotions at least Sarah was alive but his father… He eventually made his way onto the council of the new alliance leader and began to support the rebels on his planet from the inside. His tactics were ruthless, discreet and efficient he held no pity for the alliance democrats that had killed his queen and father. He now bides his time waiting for Sara’s Return, continuing project Dawn from the shadows. Seeding unrest with the current government and making ready to start the revolution for his new queens return.
