Viola Steiner-Dinesen (born September 21st 2539 - died April 28th 2596) was the tenth Archon of the Lyran Commonwealth.[1]



In 2570, Tracial would suffer a heart attack leaving Viola as her only daughter to inherit the Archonship.[2]


Viola was famously a Warhammer pilot.[3]


Yes, I agree with my learned colleague. There have been many disappointments since we joined the Star League. Worst of all is the outworlds question, which is not likely to resolve itself peacefully. If what we fear comes to pass, every world in the Commonwealth will suffer the consequences. Once again, familiers will dread the knock at their door and the messenger from the LCAF. Honored Representatives, that is exactly my point. That is why I stand before you in favor of the resolution: If every world must share the worst the Star League has to offer, why shouldn't it share its best?
