"And to Lepantis Corvax, a more eloquent man than I could ever dream to be." -- Harrad Illum
Lepantis Corvax was an erudite turian who worked as an Invictus-based salesman for Empirus Lawnmowers. An eminent family man, his marriage was marred by his bombastic extranet presence, strongly Hierarchy-centric stance on a human terrorist extranet forum, and his overt hatred towards krogan.
Before the war he forged a bond between Empirus and Trask Interstellar, which included slowly establishing a working environment alongside Veritas Imperius. His other contacts on the forums included Harrad Illum and Juhani Ragum; the latter tried to help Lepantis and his wife Caecilia fix their deteriorating marriage, with slim results.
Come Reaper War, Lepantis responded to the draft call from Invictus and joined their legions. His mental health deteriorated severely when he thought that his family had perished on Palaven (they didn't, Caecilia and Eurymedes survived the war on the Citadel), leaving Lepantis living partly in an imaginary world from where not even Caecilia or Juhani could rouse him. He was last seen on a departing Invictan troop transport as the colony began to withdraw their legions closer to home amidst a mutiny towards Primarch Victus, with an arrest warrant for shooting human civilians during the Cerberus coup.
His current whereabouts are unknown, and no one knows if he lived past the war.
"Reading's a bit of a hobby of mine - picked it up in the army, which will teach you the value of having a good book on hand for the long hours of doing nothing. Most of what I consume nowadays is non-fiction - gardening (naturally), history, mechanical engineering, business management, and volus financial advice (e.g. Rich Clan, Poor Clan). For entertainment I prefer horror, crime, general fiction, military and historical genres, and quarian girls' adventure stories (don't ask)."
"I can't find it in my heart to hate the poor beggars. Unlike the krogan they didn't choose to be mindless, murderous savages. The only reason we have to face them at all is because of the former breeding and brutalising them into cannon fodder; since the stupid shits, finally bereft of their freakish ability to push out and wash the galaxy over in hordes of their little stinking krogan bastards, and too deficient in the intelligence department to rectify their impotence, now have to resort to using other species to satisfy their sanguinary aspirations. So, I try not to be too hard on Dreket and his pals."
