Lady Victoria Espinosa was daughter of Lord Espinosa, Victoria grew up alongside her cousin Kamea Arano and was trained by the Raju Montgomery. Despite the education she received, she ultimately rejected the teachings of the old war hound, embracing her father's ambitious designs and acting as his enforcer. Young, headstrong, and fanatically loyal to her house, Victoria betrayed Kamea and set out to destroy her. Her blind loyalty to her father's Directorate would later cost Victoria her life.[1]

History[edit]

Upon refusing the advice of her uncle, Victoria, feeling betrayed by her cousins refusal, would work with her father to undermine Kamea's efforts. Victoria's first objective was to start a massacre on the Taurian world of Perdition for her father. She would later be responsible for causing the death of Raju Montgomery on the planet Weldry. On Anvelt, Victoria would oversee ammunition and smuggling operations until her capture by the mercenary forces (on behalf of Simon Karosas) hired by her cousin. Lady Espinosa would find an ally with Samuel Ostergaard upon learning the death of his son aboard his dropship, the Newgrange. She would also be responsible for the capture of Kamea's closest ally and friend, Lord Alexander Madeira.

Death[edit]

"I'm sorry Victoria...you left me no choice. But make no mistake. Justice has been served here to today. I am the Sword of Restoration and Coromodir is free."
  — High Lady Kamea Arano, expressing her remorse to Victoria upon killing her.

After refusing to listen to her father for surrendering, Victoria would force Kamea to fight her or she would kill Alexander. Seeing no alternative to end the fighting, she agrees to fight her cousin. Realizing that Victoria is too far gone, she refused all contacts during the battle. Victoria would fight her final duel with Kamea on Comodir, dying in the confrontation. Victoria’s death would mark the end of the Directorate and Aurigan Civil War.
