Michael Verion, Viscount Verion of Cherokee is a Goldshirithian military figure, who currently serves as Magister Militum of the Imperial Order of Technomaezji, later known as the Ordo Imperiale Decimae, as special branch of the Imperial Forces. Verion was Director of S.W.O.R.D. from 1628 to 1643. As longest serving Director of the agency, Verion is credited with developing S.W.O.R.D. into a ruthless and effective shadow unit of the Imperial Army. In 1652, Verion was appointed as Minister of the Interior.

Early life

Michael Verion was born the second son of Kaiser Verion I. When his brother, Alix, entered their father's footsteps into a political career, Michael chose a life in the Armed Forces. He served as an informer for the Imperial Government in Cimmeria to track the followers of the Holy Church of the Divine Icebear. The Verion name enabled him to move in the inner circles of the Church. After his true objective was disclosed after a hack in the computer system of the Imperial Forces, he had to flee Cimmeria in a hurry. From this day on, he and his brother Alix were sworn enemies.

Later career

After his cousin Ivan Verion pursued the cause of Socialism in Yardistan and was removed from office, Michael took over the position of director of S.W.O.R.D. serving the agency for 15 years.

Elevated to the titled nobility in 1661 as Viscount Verion of Cherokee.

Following an Ayreonist assassination attempt in the fifth month of 1664 Viscount Verion was placed on the inactive reserve and removed from day to day command of the Ordo Imperiale Decimae.
