Role in Third Earthsiege:
Immortal ruler of human space who maintains constant vigilance against the return of Prometheus.
Emperor of the Great Human Empire
Bald, cold eyes, and ravaged, worm-pale skin
The Imperial Angel and the Flame of Earth
His Imperial Majesty was born in the North American Prefecture at the end of the 24th century.
He was a precocious child with dreams of greatness. His parents were milicorp executives who
paid for his study at the best academies. He became a noted aerospace pilot by 2420, but his
true interest was in business. He left his military service honorably in 2425 and began to work
for Goliath Systems, a noted weapons manufacturer. He spent ten years there before going on
to work as a project leader and marketing executive with several other companies. Along the
way, he made numerous contacts. When he at last decided to start his own venture, his
phenomenal charisma and intelligence gave him a decided advantage in recruiting. He started
Sentinel Cybertronix in 2460, basing it in the culturally perverse dynamo of Metzone Los
Angeles. Sentinel Cybertronix created the neural net technology that spawned Prometheus and
the organimech brain that made Petresun himself an Immortal. That Immortality would become a
burden, for Petresun refused to take a new body. His original body continues to deteriorate,
and it will not survive without complex and bulky life support mechanisms.
The rest is history. Petresun’s first great creation, his brainchild Prometheus, is now the greatest
threat to the existence of humanity. The second Petresun creation, the one the public does not
know about, is the Immortal Brotherhood, a shadowy group of Immortals who work behind the
scenes to secure Petresun’s will and control of the Empire. His greatest creation, however, is
the Great Human Empire, which he established in 2652. He believes it is the Empire that will
provide the steel humanity needs to destroy the Cybrid threat when Prometheus sends his
legions back to Earth. In the meantime, he has sent Harabec Weathers to Mars to infiltrate and
influence the rebellion, to betray them when the time is right.

protect the Earth. No one else is strong enough."
