Description

The Honorable Rubano Malijin, Terran Parliament Chairman

Image

Age: Mid-late 30's
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 210 lbs
Physique: Mesomorphic, Muscular
Eye Color: Black
Nationality: Terran
Occupation: Parliament Chairman

Rubano hails from Hafirjan, representing many of the Eastern/Central countries such as Tanzania, Uganda, and the Congo. A popular politician and likeable celebrity, Rubano is known for his charismatic persona, strong intellect and good-natured sense of humor. He demonstrates a deep sense of patriotism and loyalty toward Terra, and a passionate determination to maintain her sovereignty. Despite his strong support for Terran independence, Rubano often advocates for bills that grant more privileges and authorities to the TNG, claiming that only a "powerful government" can be a strong one. A decisive leader and influential speaker, Rubano is the creator of the 'Xenia Compromise', the foreign garrison charter that Terra uses today.


Rubano graduated from Makerere University with a bachelor's in intergalactic business and a master's in political science. He took a year for himself after he graduated, travelling across Terra and giving his time and money to many respected global charity organizations. When he returned to Kampala, his family's influence and personal connections with his former university allowed him to quickly procure a position at Makerere as a professor of political science and Director of Admissions. He worked there for two years and was well-liked among his students and colleagues, despite his notoriously strict classroom etiquette and extreme lack of tolerance for tomfoolery and academic dishonesty. After exposing an embezzling scandal perpetuated by the university's president, Rubano was promoted by the school board to Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences. After three more years of diligent and prosperous work, Rubano was appointed the president of Makerere University.

Four years later, Rubano was offered a position as an assistant to the Ugandan Minister of Foreign Affairs. He worked with the ministry for two years, during which time he famously negotiated the release of over a hundred captured civilians from the hands of Tanzanian rebels. Using his generous wealth, Rubano also personally financed the reconstruction of several war-torn Ugandan neighborhoods. His efforts won him the Confederate Humanitarian Award and the Union Crest of Courage. Despite his relatively meager political function, Malijin had become one of this most popular politicians of the time. His fame quickly prompted presidential-hopeful Gwandoya Balondemu to elect Malijin as his running mate. When Balondemu won, Rubano became Vice President of Uganda.


Rubano spent the next four years serving the people of Uganda, using his new-found political freedoms to endorse a series of economic reforms and military expansion projects. His illustrious history, handsome person, convincing speeches and ultimately effective fiscal amendments garnered enormous support for both himself and Balondemu. Unfortunately, Balondemu would be mysteriously assassinated by Ugandan rebels in his own office one year before the end of his term. Though grieved over the loss of his friend and colleague, Rubano assumed the presidency, focusing the country's funds towards public relief efforts as well as spearheading Ugandan military efforts in ousting several rebel factions. Despite his enormous public approval, Malijin refused to run for office after his term had ended, still crestfallen over the loss of Gwandoya.


Rubano took another year off, this time travelling to other central Hafirjan countries such as Congo, Kenya, Egypt and Ethiopia. He continued his humanitarian endeavors, overseeing the construction of new homes, work places, hospitals and cultural centerpieces. He heavily endorsed anti-rebel movements and worked closely with expulsion activists, learning a good deal about military logistics and battle tactics from a myriad of different generals and commanders. He famously lead Rwandan armed forces in the Battle of Ndogo Mlima, literally charging into the fray alongside the 6th battalion and defeating the kambamti insurrectionist movement in open combat. He received the Rwandan Medal of Honor for his valor and bravery. All of this, of course, reached the ears of the Hafirjan public via media networks. Malijin's popularity was at an all time high.


When the Terran National Government assumed power and ask for Parliamentary representation from Hafirjan, Malijin submitted his candidacy. He won the election in a momentous landslide.

Rubano Malijin shook Ashkenazi's hand firmly, intruiged as Ashkenazi's intern entered. "Well, I don't want to keep you. Thank you again." Rubano turned with a bow, striding out of Ashkenazi's office with clear intent.

Rubano Malijin approached Vlatko's office quietly, politely knocking on the door to his fellow Minister's office. As usual, Rubano was dressed in dark colors, a black suit with a deep sanguine tie.

The Minister was eager to meet with Vlatko. Rubano had yet to establish a solid relationship with his fellow Center-Rightist. Having won the Xenia Compromise in the latest debate, now was the perfect time.

Rubano Malijin shook Vlatko's hand firmly, smiling widely as he stepped into Vlatko's office. "Minister Klaic," he adressed his properly, bowing his head only slightly, "some coffee would be wonderful. It's an honor to be here." Rubano looked about the office appreciatively, moving towards the couches Vlatko had pointed out.

"It's a good day, no?" Rubano grinned widely, "It was a close call on the Compromise, but I'm glad it went through like it did."

"Well he brought it on himself," Rubano half-teased, "turning the Aschen away on a whim. We're a Parliament after all. He probably went off to consult with Drulovic." Rubano chuckled deeply, clearly amused... though the tone of his voice deepened ever so slightly at the mention of 'Drulovic'.

Rubano Malijin strode up the house of Rick Pollman, brushing his tie into his suit jacket as his right hand kept a neatly-pressed file portfolio to his waist. The Minister knocked rang the doorbell, waiting outside the house with his usually calm demeanor. If what Vlatko had said was true, then this was the first step in what would hopefully prove to be a fruitful investigation.

"Mr. Pollman," Rubano smiled grandly, "it is an honor to meet you sir." The Minister stepped forward, offering his hand to the former CIA operative, "I apologize for requesting this meeting on such short notice."

"Oh don't trouble yourself Mr. Pollman," Rubano declined graciously, walking into the house, "I won't bother you for too long. There's only a few things I wish to cover with you and I'll be on my way." The Chairman looked about the grand house, clearly admiring it. "You have a lovely home, Mr. Pollman. I trust you've been living comfortably after so many honorable years of service to the CIA."

Rubano Malijin took a moment, his eyes drifting to each of the paintings in appreciative gazes. With a brief nod of thanks, Rubano quickly assumed his seat on the intended couch, waiting for Pollman to rest opposite him before beginning.

"Mr. Pollman, it is no secret that many of our TNG friends frequently contact you for advice or information," Rubano began, "your wise council and superior understanding is a valuable gift. I also come today looking for information... information that our esteemed Minister Klaic believes you might be willing to give me."

Rubano Malijin nodded, his powerful hands clasped passively together. "I imagine so, Mr. Pollman," Rubano continued, his resounding voice deep and articulate, "and I am glad that you and Minister Klaic have been so... straightforward with one another." Oddly enough, Rubano's voice was somewhat losing its suave demeanor, giving way to a colder and more factual tone of argument. Pollman's clear blues would meet Rubano's abysmal blacks, finding as much passion and emotion in them as was evident in the color itself.

... "I should hope that you would come to remember such familiarty here, Mr. Pollman," Rubano cocked his head ever so slightly, "... we are friends. We are friends, Mr. Pollman."

Rubano Malijin reclined contently into the couch, his clasped fingers pressing at the jut of his jawline. "Excellent," he grinned.

"My questions concern our esteemed Madame Director Drulovic," Rubano began calmly, "perhaps you are already aware of the strange rumors and alleged suspicions placed against both her and our honorable Minster of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jonathan Ashkenazi?"

"Minister Klaic nonetheless remains very concerned about this rumors," Rubano continued, "particularly about some of the more... gruesome allegations. Minister Klaic fears that Director Drulovic and Minister Ashkenazi were involved in some sort of genocide many years ago."

"Please, Mr. Pollman," Rubano assured, "there's nothing jeapordizing about all this. Their mere rumors, no? All of them. I have no intention of believing that Ashkenazi or Drulovic engaged in such crimes from mere word of mouth. Not even yours, Mr. Pollman." Rubano quirked an eyebrow.

"...unless of course, you have some concrete evidence?"

"Mr. Pollman, please," Rubano implored, "if what you're saying is true, then surely you understood the gravity of such information? Especially considering how such characters hold such prestigious offices within the Terran National Government?"

"I understand, Mr. Pollman," Rubano nodded patiently, "and I certainly would believe that releasing such information to unqualified sources couldn't possibly be benificial for the government." Rubano shrugged. "Still, you must admit that there are those within the TNG who should know..."

"My interest in the well-being of Terra and her sovereignty," Rubano stated plainly, "I wish to see our country made strong. If there is weakness or serious conflict in the leaders of our government, then we must know. It is our duty to understand them... to help them and raise them up as best we can."

Rubano Malijin reclined, mulling over his options in his mind. So here it was at last. All cards on the table. Rubano decided in that instant that he very much liked Rick Pollman.

"...because... Mr. Pollman..." Rubano began, leaning forward, his tone also assuming a more serious and grave depth, "...because it's too much. Because this country isn't run by Parliament. It's not run by the people. It's run by the Terran Intelligence Bureau. By the pale faced thumb-twiddlers in grey suits who watch the world from the eyes of surveillance cameras and operation dossiers." Rubano nearly growled.

"The title 'TIB Director' throws more weight then 'Prime Minister'," Rubano continued, "I don't care what the 'reality' is... this is the Terran National Government. We are free. We are soveriegn. And if not, we should at least be making a damn-worthy effort trying to appear so."

"Believe me when I tell that I do respect Director Drulovic," Rubano said firmly, "she's saved the planet on more then one occasion. We need her, that much is certain... but the extent of her power is too great. If the accusations against are true and affirmed, then I intend to use it." There was no hesitation as he said the words. "I intend to use it well."

"As for the purpoits of my actions, I have not yet decided," Rubano continued, "but the consequences would be all the same: the influence of the TIB would fall. Drulovic's authority would diminish enough to where Parliament can finally assume it's rightful place as head of the Terran National Government."

"Nenad," Rubano spoke quickly, immediately recalling his previous conversation with Vlatko, "...her former husband." Undoubtably the former operative could provide a goldmine of information for Rubano. It could very well be his end-all be-all conclusion to this investigation. And yet...

"...do you really think he'll talk?" Rubano asked skeptically.
