Kali Liao was the second child of Romano Liao and Tsen Shang, making her Sun-Tzu Liao's younger sister.


It is rumored that her biological father is actually Chad Jackson.[2] She inherited her family's madness and became the leader of the Thuggee cult.

She ordered the Black May attacks in 3062, for which she was tried and convicted in a Star League court and sentenced to internal exile on Highspire.

While in "exile," she redeveloped her Thuggee cult into a blend of cybernetic-enhanced Warrior Houses – with the aid of the Word of Blake – named White Tiger and the Rakshasa.[3]

On 30 November 3073, Death Commandos arrested Duchess Kali Liao on Highspire and transported her to Sian to be presented to the Chancellor. Kali Liao was presented to Sun-Tzu Liao on 28 December and charged with collaborating with the enemy and treason.[4][5]


She gave birth to a son, Cameron Victor St. Jamais-Liao (born in 3064[6]) with Word of Blake Precentor Cameron St. Jamais. There was potentially a second male child born in 3069 as well.[7]
