BiographyEdit

ChancellorEdit

Sister of Kalvin Liao, she was raised on New Avalon and spent most of her Chancellorship working to maintain peace between the Confederation and the Federated Suns and Free Worlds League.[2]

Under Mica Liao's reign the House of Scions gained the power to review legislation enacted by the Prefectorate and approve or disallow it. She made sure however that this power didn't extend to reviewing the Chancellor's decrees.[3]

QuotesEdit

Tyrants seldom come to us openly, hands dripping with the blood of innocent victims. More often than not they appear as tireless friends of the people, individual receptacles of virtue, ready to save us from ourselves. Let it be recalled, however, that the King's Justice is just as often the proud foot of the oppressor. In the end, we ourselves are to blame for receiving him with open arms; in the end, we have deceived ourselves.
  — Chancellor Mica Liao, excerpt from inauguration speech, 2530[4]
