Upstarts in Felac'Delb
Yukanis is a former archon of The Combine. He broke away from them, intending to start a new nation on Ekwa that he called the Ekwan Republic. He has displayed the ability to manipulate minds through magic. Yukanis managed to make away with a stash of runes (stones with inscriptions on them indicating the magic stored within them), which he plans to use both as currency in the future political deal-making process.
