Kevin Tamar
Affiliation House Tamar
Leader of the Tamar Pact
Founder of the Lyran Commonwealth, and one of its nine initial Archons

Kevin Tamar was the leader of the Tamar Pact. He was the last ruler of the Tamar Pact, and one of the founders of the Lyran Commonwealth.


He was present on Arcturus in 2339 where he met Thomas McQuiston and Robert Marsden in what was the first meeting to create the Lyran Commonwealth, and by 2441 the Terran Hegemony recognized the new state.

It took until 2346 for the three of them to agree on the nine Archon system and select the Archon Basileus. The system was not working very well and was very unstable. Robert Marsden spent several years studding his enemies' week points and in August 2375 instigated a coup, making those errors visible and stripping them all of their power and imprisoning them for life.[1]
