Dasarius Interstellar was a vast corporation that built most FTL-capable ships within the Compact. It also held a near monopoly over hypergate and projection drive technologies. Its CFO and Number Two executive was Tol Germanicus
Tessa Dasarius had been the company’s long-time CEO as of 429 Interstellar Era. When her designated heir, JT Austin ran away to Amargosa, Tessa disowned him. Her second oldest son William proved to be unfit to be an eventual successor, and youngest son Carl preferred to follow in his father‘s footsteps. She decided her daughter Shaneese would succeed her on the girl’s fiftieth birthday.
In 420, the company began an ambitious infrastructure and aid project to bring peace to war-torn Aphrodite. Germanicus personally recruited Suicide as a senior pilot and appointed Gerard Kurz as a project manager.
Magna Piori, an accounting executive for the company, participated in the investigation into the loss of the Etrusca Explorer, which was ferrying seven fusion weapons extracted for the Navy from Marilyn.
Dasarius shut down Hatch, the subsidiary that purchased JunoCorp, in an effort to dissolve Juno itself. However, the company’s size and complexity, often described as being a virtual Constituent Authority, meant that Juno’s tentacles would prove hard to track and remove. Germanicus actively supported the investigation begun by Quentin Austin and subsequently taken over by Douglas Best.
