Name: Peter Hooks
Birth date Sakra 11th, 1815
Age as of 1826 11
Peter was born to a mathematics professor and his secretary. They lived in the southern half of the Killbraugha and were employed by a kindly Phoenix. Peter lived most of his life amongst books and equations which made him painfully shy and gave him the appearance of a librarian. He lived a lonely life and it seemed that he was destined to follow his father's footsteps when Siegfried's Day occurred. Peter was only eleven at the time, but judging from his journal entries, it left a lasting impression on him. His parents, adopting their employer's detachment from world events, ignored Siegfried Day the best they could while Peter devoured everything related to it. He kept many of Devin Tossier's pamphlets and posters regarding Siegfried's Day and bought a copy of Margaret Leland's book off a visiting Ferdarian. When he was fifteen, he traveled to Lester, the city of the IFM, and joined their ranks. Marcus Galloway and Kerry McNair did not know what to do with him, but Kingsley and Heron Massie felt he would be a good candidate for the first ever Killer Representative in over a hundred years. He had a spotless background, was not threatening in appearance, and was not knowingly associated with either the IFM or the KLA.
“Know your place, Peter. You are our political representative, not a warrior. You deal with running this country and keeping the Shivians as happy as their kind can be and let me worry about the potential war.”-Kingsley Montivelo
Peter was the only Killer who won an election in 1833 and it was mostly thanks to the Shivian politician, Sebastian Wallace, a part time ally of the Killer cause. Kingsley mentions briefly in his memoir the hard time Peter had with Sebastian and the delicate balance he had to strike to prevent himself from being thrown out of the Chambers. Because of his political aspect, he was never a full member of the KLA or the IFM and was often not informed of everything going on. This led to many tense moments between Peter and the Shivian government as well as Peter and the KLA, but he managed to help elect twenty more Killers to the Chambers by 1849 and became governor of the Killbraugha in 1845. As governor he worked with the Shivians and expanded the infrastructure and housing developments, turned one of their secret contracts with the Korens into a public one, and fought for the first railroad to be laid in the Killbraugha.
