Cyrus Tanlis was born of middle class parents in the Sirius Major colony of the Sirius system. Sirius Major being a corporate state. Sirius Major itself is a heavily populated asteroid world with a spun habitat producing 0.6G. It was into this environment of corporate wheeler-dealing that Cyrus immersed himself.

In this environment Cyrus thrived, winning a prestigious corporate scholarship to the University of Sirius. From the day he graduated he devoted his life to "his" corporation, Sirius Corp. and swiftly moved through the ranks.

After eight years learning the ropes in various managorial positions Sirius Corp transferred him to their "Diplomatic" division and he was posted to Earth, eventually becomming Sirius Corps chief "ambassador" to Earth. (Actually for the Sirius Trade Federation but Sirius Corp pays his bills.)

It was then that his troubles began. As a result of a somewhat dodgy deal carried out by Hades Mining, a medium sized corporation of the Sirius Trade Federation, accusations of graft were made against Cyrus and he was recalled to Sirius. The allegations were found to be untrue, but the damage had been done, and after being employed his entire working life by Sirius Corp he was dismissed.

As a consequence Cyrus Tanlis has a deep seated resentment against the corporation he formally thought of as his family, but has a hatred against the people, he has yet to establish who, who destroyed his reputation.

Cyrus himself is a tall lightly built man with greying hair. He appears to have a gambling and alcohol problem. In actuality this is an act and he is actually searching for the people who destroyed his career. Vengeance is what motivates him.
