[edit] As Prince of Regulus

Taking the Office Principality of Regulus, Kirc Cameron-Jones resurrected the title "Prince" which was once used by the Selaj noble family which his own clan replaced.[4]

Kirc built up an opposition bloc in the League's Parliament which he led against Marik.[5] He been noted for his seeking to protect the League from itself by using legal means.[6] Like his father before him, Kirc harbored dreams of becoming the Captain-General of the League. In public has been staunch opponent of Captain-General Thomas Marik during his reign. Many of Captain-General Marik's military reforms which his Regulan Hussars have not favored, have been slowed down or not been implemented.[7] Kirc had cited that cultural precedent that Hussar would not change some of its ways. However, due to Kirc going along with the Military Reformation Act, the Regulan Hussars have suffered from low priority for supplies.[8]

During this time, Kirc betrayed his wife (while still married to her) and number liasons with other women. This later caused a rift between himself and his son, Titus.[9]

[edit] The Jihad and the Downward Spiral as Prince

on 7th of August 3069, Kirc made a League-wide address denouncing Captain-General Thomas Marik. Since it had been revealed that the standing Captain-General was not a true Marik, Kirc saw this as an opportunity to finally grab power for himself. Reviewing "false" Thomas Marik efforts to try convice the League Parliament to make his post permenant. He makes this address to the League, that he enacts the provisions of the Act of Succession document, which begins process of succession. In accordence to the act it gives the right for the Marik family to choose successor. By them backing the "false" Thomas Marik, they forfeit right to chose. Since the next eligible candidate for the Captain-Generalcy was the false Marik's father-in-law Duke Christopher Halas, he was suspect due to his association. Kirc claimed Halas was invalidated as well, and so he declared himself the only rightful ruler of the Free Worlds League. Using the powers of the Act of Succssion, all federal authority, is transfered to post of Prince of Regulus. Thus claiming becoming Captain-General of the Free Worlds League. In his his first act, in the address he cites Thomas Marik is order arrested should he try to give orders to federal authorities or any party agreeing take orders.[10]

After formal announcement of his intentions.

Against the advice of his military liason officer, Colonel Mark Branhauber, he has a large task force of vessels, including Regulan controled Warship Attica, move out to strike number of key worlds in Oriente.[13] The invasion conducted executed in April 11th, encounters heavy resistance in the form of Oriente's controled Thera Class Carrier, FWLS Santorini and its WarShip escorts. Kirc loses his Corvette to Oriente forces as part payment for his attack.[14]

In June of 3072, the 49th Shadow Divsion's better Namaah's Nightwalkers invades Regulus. His haste, Kirc tries evacuate his love, Sonja from the palace. However, elements of the Nightwalkers enter the palace and trap Kirc and Colonel Branhauber. Sonja reveals that she is Namaah, the Nightwalker's commanding officer.

Shouldering blame for this attack on his nation, and allowing his military forces invade Oriente on false reports. She leaves him in his palace while rest of Regulus City burns.[15]

Kirc ordered loyal forces to commence "Purge" of Regulan's military and civilian polutations in June. Over million people (many of them innocent) were affected by these intercamps used find traitors. Kirc enlists his estranged son, Titus, to find the hidden traitors whom aided Namaah in her mission against him and Regulus.

During this time he also lays the groundwork for his revenge. He nominatees his son to organize and create a military force to strike at the world of Gibson where the 49th Division was last seen. Giving Titus command of the Fourth Regulan Hussars, his son lays out his plans, called Operation Vijay. He recruits two famed anti-Blakist mercenary regiments, and additional smaller mercenary forces at Kirc's urging. Finding Titus's popularity growing too much for his tastes, Kirc has him arrested and replaced by long-time friend and former commander of the First Regulan Hussars, General Tomaso Kinchuhara. In haste Kirc orders the Task Force leave for Gibson in April 3073. In September word of the assault's failure reaches to Kirc. His paranoia peaking, he began work on another purge.
