From publisher blurb:
Leader of the Pact
As various alien races gathered the fragments of Xenos, they formed a religious faction dedicated to the rebirth of the living planet. This faction is known as the Pact, which is led by a group of individuals called Rectory. Zhaar is the Rectory’s most prominent member.
Zhaar found fame among his people as an expert pilot. During a test flight using a strange crystal, the craft exploded, and the alien crystal -- actually a chunk of Xenos -- imbedded itself into Zhaar’s hand. Thanks to the power of Xenos, Zhaar survived the starship’s explosion.
Zhaar has gone to great lengths to manipulate the image of the Pact in the eyes of the galactic community. While many still see the Pact as a dangerous cult, Zhaar attempts to present them as a group devoted to peace and unity; as he thinks all living beings will live in unity by accepting Xenos into their minds... and Xenos’ fragments into their bodies.
Iconic Legends. Because sometimes you a need a character everyone knows, even if they're meeting them for the first time.
