While the Auran leadership does not have a formal line of succession, the role of sinsar assures that the combat trials used to choose a new caele for the planet can at least be postponed if the current monarch dies in wartime.
On Aurum, Alkedre comes from a distant tribe in the foothills, where Rylus recruited her. She carries a giant two-handed sword and wears bright red armour; more of the same creature's scales hang in her blond hair.
Unlike Rylus, Alkedre would welcome an alliance between Aurum and the Imperium of Man. She sees it as an opportunity to improve Auran technology while allowing her warlike people to see other stars and learn the battle techniques of other cultures.
She voices this opinion quite frequently. However, the sinsar has great respect for Rylus and while she has no qualms arguing about his decisions whenever the opportunity presents itself, she accepts his leadership without bitterness.
