Julian Tiepolo
Died 3029
Affiliation ComStar
Primus of ComStar

Julian Tiepolo (29?? – 3029) was the twelfth Primus of ComStar, holding the role during the majority of the Fourth Succession War. His most notable achievement was to oversee the Federated Commonwealth Alliance and to personally introduce the Concord of Kapteyn.


Early service to ComStar[edit]

The quiet and unemotional Tiepolo rose through the ranks on the back of his skills as an administrator and planner, ultimately selected by Primus Allen Rusenstein for the important post of Precentor Atreus, placing him in control of all the HPG stations in the Free Worlds League and earning him a seat on the First Circuit. As a member of that body in 3006, Tiepolo among those who pushed for Rusenstein to resign in the wake of the severe devaluing of the C-Bill during the 2990's, the Jolly Roger Debacle and the failure to discover the origins of Wolf's Dragoons. Tiepolo was selected by the First Circuit as Rusenstein's replacement as a compromise between the conservative and liberal power blocs on the First Circuit. [1] [2]

Primus of ComStar[edit]

Tiepolo's rule of Comstar was later considered by Hanse Davion as peaceful and neutral... at least compared with his succesor. However, his protege Vesar Kristofur, Precentor ROM, instigated a civil War in League of Free Worlds, manipulating Anton Marik. This was part of a plot with two objectives: first, damage the economy of the League to help rebalance the C-Bill, and two, an most important, uncover the truth behind mysterious origins of Wolf's Dragoons. He have found a lead to point to a connection between the mercenary group and SLDF army of Kerensky. But his plan backfired, and Tiepolo stripped Kristofur of his rank and exiled it from the Inner Sphere. Some point later, the young Myndo Waterly tried to become Tiepolo's consort, probably to influence and manipulate it, but he refused. The hostility of ambitious Myndo escalated, arriving to his apex during the 4th Succession War, where she accused to Tiepolo every security leak in Terra. The aging Tiepolo, during a meeting with the First Circuit members, was shocked when Mindo revealed than a copy of the Helm Memory core was in NAIS, in New Avalon. When Myndo proposed to attack and destroy the NAIS, Tiepolo was to oppose... but he can't: he suffered a massive heart attack. The question was voted while he was in the hospital, winning the yes option, but the attack failed, being annihilated the attacking troops, posting as Death Commandos.

Death and Legacy[edit]

Tiepolo never awakened, dying soon later. He was one of the few Primuses to have died of natural causes. Tiepolo was replaced by firebrand Precentor Dieron Myndo Waterly. [3]
