Who's Who in Izhitsa
« on: January 03, 2020, 01:59:27 AM »
Some OOC notes:
This nation is meant to feel stuck in the past. That's why I'm using historical pictures.
Most of these characters use pictures of people I based them on in some way. If you're curious about any of them, feel free to send me a PM.

BiographyMatvey Karamovo has lived a varied life. A scheming communist revolutionary, a devoted Izhitsan soldier, a resolute union boss, Karamovo has drifted from role to role as his life has taken him. His fiery rhetoric, worker's background, and military service made him an easy symbol of the revolution during the Izhitsan Civil War, especially once his armies began inflicting defeat after defeat against the nationalists.
Despite being the face of Izhitska Ednota, many in the organisation are troubled by his social conservatism and hardline communist economics. Many suspect that his ideology is far less defined than he would have people believe, and that his efforts to rebuild Izhitsan society now that the war has ended will end in his undoing.

BiographyTadar Hamady's claim to fame is the Fara Declaration. In 1991, Hamady and four other economists decried the stagnation and economic dysfunction of Izhitsa, blaming it on a failure of the Izhitsan government to react to modern technology. Izhitsa, they said, ignored its infrastructure while constructing monuments to glories long past. It weakened its export-driven economy through strict adherence to the gold standard. It allowed gross violations of workers's rights. While the declaration became a rallying cry for reformists, especially after the collapse of the Revna in 1996, it also became a point of consternation for conservatives. The controversy, of course, only served to launch of the careers of the so-called Fara Circle.
Hamady was the only member of the Fara Circle who had not been a federal parliamentarian at the time of the nationalist coup. The rest were burnt to death by the nationalists when they captured the provisional government in Dzelo.
Hamady spent her career working to achieve economic prosperity in Yach as a case study for all of Izhitsa to follow. Fate has given her a chance to apply that case study herself, whether she wants to or not.

BiographyAnton Brazda is a respected writer in the Izhitsan left, unifying socialist thought with statistical fact. While his background working for a secretive and rather sketchy holding company has been criticised by many on the left, there’s no doubt that his 2006 book, Modern Solutions to Ancient Problems, made the Izhitsan left what it is today, and has been especially influential on the Izhitska Ednota elite, especially Matvey Karamovo.

BiographyDushan Ondrevich is a drifter. For most of his adult life, he was only transiently employed, walking from city to city looking for work. Then, in 2007, he got lucky. He finally found a job that would keep him for more than a few months. He began taking college courses, and even learned English. Then, 2013 came. The nationalists came. They closed the university. They burned down his workplace for “encouraging” transients. The only they didn’t take from him was his suit, which he kept in perfect condition, right up to the point where he and 20000 IE soldiers stormed the former king’s palace.

BiographyBartolomey Hatsek is a career diplomat. Fluent in six languages, he was the face of Izhitsa’s diplomacy in Mid-Aranye for over a decade. When the coup came, he easily found asylum in Safraen, where he wrote his memoirs. Now that the civil war is over, he’ll do anything in his power to ensure the return of democracy to Izhitsa, even if it means entertaining the pretensions of the Yach Governate, for a while.

Kamil Yanoshek, AKA Kamil I Zhemislovtsiy
RolesPretender to the Izhitsan throne
Year of birth1979: Fara
Education2000: Izhitsan Culinary Academy
Positions HeldExecutive chef at Aranye Star, 2017-present

BiographyOriginally a chef from Fara, Kamil Yanoshek never thought that he would one day learn that he was the rightful heir to the Izhitsan throne. Of course, the evidence is somewhat tenuous, but the fact remains that he is Kamil I of Izhitsa, and it is his responsibility to save his people from occupation from Yachese and Communist forces. With the full force of the Izhitsan Monarchists behind him, surely nothing can go wrong.

Education1998: MA History at Hrada University

Links to Important events?Led an armed band against the nationalists in the Izhitsan Civil War
BiographyBefore the war, House Pavlovich was one of the few noble houses with any power left in Izhitsa. When his father died of food poisoning in 2004, Dobroslav inherited the barony of Hranitse, as well as a spot in Shta’s Regional Duma. It was there he fell in with the Izhitsan Monarchists, a group that appealed to his deep sense of tradition. He gained a reputation for unconditional support for the throne, condemning liberals and nationalists alike for their anti-Zhemislovtsy rhetoric. When the civil war broke out, nationalist militias rose in Shta, and he gathered a posse that became known for its ferocity against the regicides. However, after a sound defeat outside Zapadni Pokhod in late 2015, they were routed to Hranitse, where they barely managed to escape after a harrowing siege in 2016. Dobroslav has been living in his mountain estate ever since, planning for the day when he could one day return a Zhemislovtsy to the throne.

BiographyVladen Korzhef is a lawyer turned liberal firebrand. A favorite of King Boleslav before his untimely execution by the nationalists, Korzhef made his reputation as a staunch supporter of pro-business reform and crackdown on political crime. When the nationalists revolted, he was in Trkh on vacation, and thus managed to avoid being executed with the rest of Parliament. This led to accusations of cowardice and collaboration, but Korzhef seems to have rehabilitated his reputation through his personal participation in the liberation of Trkh and his activism for renewed elections in Izhitsa.

Lubor Yelinek
RolesIzhitsan Ambassador to Cassiopeia
Year of birth1983: Obkhodni M’esto
Education2007: Doctor of Law at Hrada University
Positions Held2010-2012: Ambassador’s Secretary in Cassiopeia
FamilyWife - Linda Yelinekova
Son - Petr Yelinek
Son - Jirzhi Yelinek
Links to Important events?
BiographyLike the rest of the world’s diplomats in Cassiopeia, Lubor Yelinek experienced an unexpectedly early retirement after the Cassiopeian junta’s decision to close its borders. However, considering that the rest of Izhitsa’s diplomatic staff would experience a similar situation with the 2013 nationalist uprising, he feels almost lucky to have gotten home before the rush. Yelinek has maintained a keen interest in Cassiopeian affairs since he left the country, and feels a sort of kinship between Izhitsa and Cassiopeia: both nations who suffered under militaristic misrule and chaos for over ten years. He feels the effects of that misrule most keenly in the lower half of his right leg, lost to an IED during the nationalist takeover of Obkhodni M’esto, and replaced with a wood prosthetic. Though, as he tells anyone who will listen, it could have been worse. He could have been the guy who set it off.
