BSOCT - Empress Metis Picture

First Name: Metis
Last Name: Ma'atia
Gender: Female
Race/Species: Seshatian
Biography: Metis was born as the elder of twin heirs of the Emperor Sobek and Empress Athena Ma'atia. Along with her twin brother, Prince Coeus, Metis was raised in a loving family environment and trained in basic magic and warfare until her 10th birthday. On their tenth birthday, the royal twins were told by the Grand Sage which heir would inherit the throne of the empire and which would become the next guardian protector of the planet Seshat. To the surprise of the court, it was decreed that Metis would take the throne as Empress, and Coeus would be the protector of both the Empress and the planet. After this, Metis became engrossed in her studies to be a wise and just ruler when the time came for her to take the throne. Over the years, Metis matured quickly and showed a great amount of wisdom well beyond her years. As such, when she turned 16, her parents stepped down as reigning monarchs and gave the throne over to Metis. In the year since taking the throne, the young Empress has been shown to be a fair and just ruler, gathering loyal allies and advisers who also seek to help their empire and planet prosper.
While she has yet to experience such tragedy herself, Metis studied the dark age her planet suffered after her mother, Empress Athena and the former Sailor Seshat, lost her Star Seed to the corrupted Sailor Galaxia. As such, Metis does not want any planet to suffer in such a way again and actively helps to promote peace and prosperity through means of trade and alliances throughout the galaxies. In doing so, she and her planet were invited to become an ally of the new Moon Kingdom and eventually Metis was invited to become a member of
the Board of Foreign Senshi Relations. While the empress is not a fan of 'war games' she does understand that they can provide a peaceful solution to prevent true conflict.
