Name: Kenneth Troy
Birth date: Safree 9th, 1810
Age as of 1826: 16
Kenneth was Dara's younger step-brother and spoiled child of the Secretary of the Treasury. Even though he knew his father was not fond of Dara, he was close to his step-brother and they kept in touch as Dara enlisted in the army. They seemed to have found a mutual respect for each other and encouraged each other in their respective agendas. While Dara fought in the desert, Kenneth served as an aide to a Chamber representative and watched the furious uproar that occurred after President Patrick McAlister signed a peace treaty with the KLA. Many felt that he had been soft and Kenneth believed that the Killers had tricked his government into a deal that rewarded the Killers for revolting. After his brief stint as a representative aide, he became a secretary for the Minister of Foreign Affairs and learned more about Shivian-Killer relations as well as Shivian-Indarium relations. Unlike his step-brother, he was annoyed the Ferdarians did not enter the war sooner, but he was bitterly disappointed when the Ferdarians carved up the Ignis and took most of the land from the Shivians.
Kenneth had a natural talent for politics and it was not long before he decided to run for Representative himself. He used his brother's army career as a platform and was elected almost unanimously as a Unionist representative. He was worried about Dara's condition, but was distracted by Shivian politics. The Druid government was requesting Shivian assistance in securing the Gargainian-Shivian Border against the Demons. Kenneth, a strong Crossnic, supported manning the border, but others felt that it was a Druid concern. Others also asked why they did not enlist Killers and send them to the border. Dara entered the political arena around this time and together they tried to convince the Conference at Risina not to hear the KLA's opinion on the Killer draft. They failed, but they were able to work out a compromise which did not involve the Shivians losing too much face. Kenneth, unlike his step-brother, had a quick temper and was less forgiving. While Kenneth did not want the Killers to speak at Risina because of Shivian colonial aspirations, Dara did not want the Killers to speak because he felt it wasn't proper. The Killers were Shivian citizens and thus had no legal right to speak in Risina. Kenneth and Dara frequently clashed over the Killer issue, but he helped his step-brother run his presidential campaign nevertheless.
Besides Bernard Griffin, Kenneth was the strong opponent to the 1845 Peace Treaty and having a third party negotiator only mollified him slightly. Kenneth never directly spoke out against the treaty, but did everything in his power to dismantle it once his step-brother died and Kenneth assumed the presidency. Many historians bemoan his decision to do so, as many argue that the treaty could have created a peaceful co-exist between the two races. Instead, Kenneth pushed Kingsley into Damon Glasgow's arms and helped lay the groundwork for the Second Shadow War. In the end, Kenneth's fault was being an colonialist during the death of colonialism.
