The capital of the Empire of Man, Helena provides the housing of all Imperial affairs, bureaucrats and citizens. Named after Helen Horen, who oversaw the construction of the city, it houses men and women from all reaches of the empire, from Heartlanders to Kardasi. The city operates as the seat of the House of Horen, who rule from the palace of Rubrummagnus at the peak of the grand city.

History

Construction

An atypical approach was taken by the Emperor at the time, Augustus I, who decided not to employ a vast array of Imperial architects that have constructed plentiful cities before - but instead, bequeathed all jurisdiction of the project to his wife, Helen Horen, who spent countless hours working on the construction of a grand city, one quote from an Imperial advisor at the time said.

  • "Helen has shown the upmost dedication to the project, rising at four at night daily and starving herself of slumber to complete the city."

The city was completed in time for when the migration of the Empire came upon Arcas.
