Prince Hyram Decados

Head of House Decados


Immorality and immortality are synonyms. Virtue is the surest obstacle to longevity.
— The Ducal Manifesto, maxim 39

Hyram is an enormous man fond of body piercings and bare flesh. He would be crippled, thanks to a would-be assassin’s bullet which severed his spinal cord, but the cybernetic legs which support his massive upper body allow him some measure of mobility.

He does not often reveal these spindly constructs – an unusual act of modesty for a Decados – typically wrapping his lower body in rich cloths. He is a man fond of displaying his opulence, with many jeweled rings on all of his fingers.


Prince Hyram Decados has ruled his house for over 30 years, yet he has now apparently turned away from Imperial politics – to the astonishment of many – in favor of deep space exploration.

Hyram’s own supporters consider him a manipulative, iron-fisted despot. However, in this respect he continues a long line of Decados despots, and the House is fully used to such behavior – the Prince must be the epitome of the Decados way. Hyram is doubtless one of the least-trusted and most universally-despised men in the Known Worlds.
