|Chronological and Political Information|
Artur Strykia was the High Lord of the Antrixian Commonwealth during the end of the Old Republic and to the end of the Clone Wars. Artur was the husband of Marissa Damodred-Strykia and the father of Dontaine, Draygan, Graydon, Allyson, and Arina Strykia.
Viewed as the eternal optimist, Artur was a strong backer of the Republic and the Jedi Order, along with strengthening the relationship between the aforementioned and the Commonwealth. This caused him to have many political rivalries among the nobles of the Landsting. Artur was said to be a fair, but stern, ruler of the Commonwealth, yet very sympathetic to those in need and peril.
Artur was slain by his eldest son, Dontaine during the start of Order 66 and the Antrixian Purge, at the conclusion of the Clone Wars. His legacy continued on through his other four children during the Galactic Civil War and following the liberation of the Commonwealth from Imperial forces.
Artur's views and leadership styles were modern and went against the traditionalist practices of many of the conservatives within the Commonwealth. At the same time, Artur was protective of the Commonwealth, wanting to ensure that his world(s) were able to continue on, unabated. He sought to find a middle ground that would ensure the posterity of the Commonwealth, yet allow the Antrixians to share their benefits with the galaxy at large.
The Strykia twins, Allyson and Graydon, were the true legacies of Artur. Allyson was the determined warrior that constantly fought for the welfare and protection of the Commonwealth, much like her father. Graydon was the flip side, a compassionate leader that always looked to assist those in need and be the guardian of justice.
Following his death and the eventual liberation of the Commonwealth, the regime that came to hold the most sway in the Landsting modeled many of their practices on the precedents set by Artur during the Clone Wars. In the fight against the Empire and capitalistic greed, the freed Commonwealth often cited Artur's spirit and memory, using his legacy as a rallying cry to defend the innocents of the Levrian Expanse.
Appearance and Personality
Artur was just entering his forties at the time of his death. He had a strong jaw line, dark hair and brown eyes with the red, Antrixian glow. His son, Dontaine, took after Artur in looks. His closely-trimmed beard was beginning to grey, making him look older than his years. Among his enemies, Artur had the reputation of having cold eyes. Those that were his friends or knew him best knew that he was warm-hearted and very compassionate and that his eyes could be soft and caring. Artur was fiercely protective of his family, friends, and brethren from Landris.
