Head of the Virstürm family estate.

Former leader of The Democratic Progress Party of Kodiak formerly The Progress Party

Tobias, born in 604, was the primary heir to the Virstürm family dynasty. He was born into a wealthy family residing in the region of Vikstein which was formerly a Bromannikha vassal. His parents, Heirst and Ingrid Virstürm, were some of the largest landowners in Kodiak. In 622, Tobias attended school at the Ryykburgh Academy, a private university, and received a degree in Political Science. It was here that Tobias had found an appreciation for law and attended Ryykburgh Law School in 626. He was made an editor for the school's law review during his attendance.

Tobias started off his legal career working for Howard & Finch P.C. a law practice outside of the capital. He mostly dealt with corporate litigation, but also found himself working for his family with dealing with disputes over land possession and imminent domain. Tobias would eventually leave his firm to go pursue a goal in politics.

In 632 he found himself working closely with the now defunct DLPK while working as an attorney. He would leave this role and in 634 would work as internal counsel for the Kodiak Growth Initiative, a non-profit organization focused on technological and infrastructural growth within Kodiak. It was here that Tobias would find a great appreciation for education and technological progressiveness.

In 636 Tobias was elected to the General Assembly. Tobias was appointed the Minister of Healthcare and Education under Alexander Mondo in which he passed key legislation focusing on the educational standards of Kodiak. In 639, Tobias formed the PPK, which was funded in majority by his family, in order to support an independent campaign for President of the General Assembly in the 639 General Election. Tobias would win against his opponent and would run for a consecutive term winning again in the 642 General Election. Tobias as President was most known for his introduction of the Standing Rules and Procedures of the General Assembly, which gave the General Assembly its first iteration of rules as dictated by the Constitution.

After a long absence from the General Assembly, Tobias would return to politics in his golden years, but later retired in 668. He has two sons, Tiberius and Tobias, and one daughter, Evelyn.

Doctor of Archaeology

Dakota Randy Bones, born 637, is a mystifying individual. He was the son of Randy Bones Sr., who was killed in the Darrent War, who formerly worked as a professor at the the university in Taiping. Dakota was left orphaned following the death of his father, only leaving him with a small leather journal.

Debated diploma

Not much is known about Dakota's life, as a teen he escaped from the orphanage in Taiping and was presumed missing or dead. Later in 665, Dakota was found in Graz, supposedly working as a professor in archaeology. He received his Doctorate from the University of Seathenia in Graz, but there is no way to confirm this as the university was destroyed during the Communard Civil War.

In 668, Dakota Bones was elected to serve in the General Assembly as a representative from Taiping. How he managed to accomplish getting voted in is also a mystery, however it is presumed that S.H.R.I.M.P. funded and campaigned for Dakota.

Dakota has an government intern, Casey Duggery, who he has taken as his archaeological protege. It is assumed Casey does not have any interest whatsoever in this field.

Vikstein

Founding

Vikstein was originally named Virsturm in the year 876. It was founded by the noble house Heirst who found the defensive terrain and natural resources of the area to their liking. The Heirst Family was granted the area by the prominent lords of Fanbürger, who found the region too difficult to maintain due to its mountainous and rugged terrain.

It was here that the Heirst patriarch and Lord, Vir, founded the capital city of Virut in a valley between the mountains. Notably this capital was mostly a defensive keep built to keep order to the area. In 887 the keep was completed and the fiefdom was established as an autonomous zone under Fanbürgian rule. Vir named this region as Vikstein, after his son Viker.

The Age of Occupation

Years passed and the Fanbürgians kept rule over the area Vikstein, whose culture had shifted and adopted new and different traditions. More noble houses would take the mantle as protector over this region and eventually the first local noble house of Regburg, Johannes, would take the reigns as protector over the fiefdom.

The Age of Occupation originated in 1325, as the nation of Fanburg would disproportionally use citizens from the region of Vikstein in frontline combat, in a 20 year long war, known as the Fanbürg- Rykkland Punitive War.

Vikstein found itself in a terrible position and was now in a tumultuous time, due to famine, war and an ever growing desire of independence. This desire would grow into a long revolt, lead by house Regburg in which the Vikan had no hope of winning.

Fortunately, shrewd diplomacy, defensive terrain, outside aid, and the pressure overtaking Fanbürg due to the long conflict, led the Vikans to victory in independence in 1350.

The Age of Peace

Vikstein would find itself as an independent nation located between the many powers of its region The Kodiak Republic. The area, too difficult to invade, and protected by its strong alliances, allowed Vikstein to prosper in an age of peace, which is ongoing to this day. The area has grown significantly, and while the famous house Regburg no longer rules, the nation has found itself capable nobles to take up the mantle and lead the nation to its golden era. The 10th noble house to rule Vikstein is the Vanstürm Family, may their rule be long and prosperous.
