Magnate Republic of California Story 2 - Update 1 Spoiler : Chairman Ulric Chairman Ulric was the first son of a mighty Magnate. The vast shares of his fathers business empire passed on to him. His father gave him his name, saying it was a strong respectable name. From his birth Ulric was groomed for success, taught in the disciplines of economics, psychology, English, and enough understanding of the sciences to form a formidable magnate. Ulric was always in competition for his father and mothers attention. Magnates rarely have free time to spend with families. Many being raised by the small educated class that rested between the magnates and the commoners. At a young age, Magnate children were given an unyielding competitive drive. On top of that the latchkey kids of the Magnate turned into ruthless and opportunistic rulers. So perhaps it was something special in his upbringing, in his soul, cleverly placed marriages and friendships, or just in his luck Ulric became Chairman of the Magnate Senate. A powerful position that could not only grant special privileges to the Chairman's businesses, but also give them the ability to shape the future of the Republic. The Chairman was lucky to rise to the throne in an age where few of the oligarchies were in direct competition within the Republic. For the first time the Senate was relatively united and could focus outside of itself and petty fights over market gains. What is left to be seen is what the state is able to make of it.
