Goronak Krush'Ov was one of the most wealthy and influential politicians in the Hegemony, owing his wealth to the rich platinum deposits of Martog in the Go'arg system.
As Governor he was the acting CEO of the planet's state-owned mining corporations and as such he funneled a part of the mining output past the watchful eye of StateInt.
He commanded a sizable private guard to enforce his will against the military and official statesmen which was said to be ruthless and strong enough to make a policing action by the Hegemony a pyrrhic victory.
AIS intelligence estimated that he had influence at the great Hegemon's court and a say in clandestine operations. Krush'Ov rarely visited Martog, preferring the pleasantries of the homeworld over the harsh environment of this prospering mining colony.
