Prince Rhexis e Gothixus e Daizojixus tal Hazred, nicknamed the Mad Engineer, was the chief engineer of the space battlecruiser Oriflamme during the Galactic War. Although he was a prince of the powerful Kingdom of Hazred, Rhexis had little patience for the social conventions common to someone of his station. The prince, like many in his family, had an interest in the occult. He was often heard to mumble incantations under his breath whenever he was at work.
