The Falsemen are the product of Ennueh genetic engineering. They are built for their talents, from cunning engineer to subtle mind reader and ever-so-rare mind controller, and given as gifts between the powerful who can afford to commission their crêching.
Once born, they possess at the least the faculties of the Ennueh designers who created them. Many Falsemen work to develop their kind to greater heights while they debate the philosophical merits of the arguments that declare them as people.
Mallu was designed to be a military leader and granted as an adolescent to Tschu the Allel. Tschu’s admiration for Mallu’s quick mind quickly turned to love for their compassionate heart and easy laugh. The two became lovers years ago and remained so until Mallu’s death, precisely at the moment of the death of the The Fifth Emperor of the Galaxy, Magister of All Suns, the Galactic Supermass, the Gem in the Darkness, Iurcod Mas Khelling ibn Traum.
You can learn more about Mallu through the play of Autumn of the Empire of the Thousand Petal Throne, one of the settings in Noirlandia!
Thanks to my Patrons for giving Mallu a face! Thanks in particular to The Fifth World, Jason Godesky’s shared world and RPG about what humanity does after industrial civilization loses its grasp on the world!
