Roman Lynch is easily the most powerful man in Gemini Sector outside of the Confederation Navy. His organization operates in a manner very similar to the Mafia of old, supporting everything from protection rackets to outright piracy. There are few Gemini Sector politicians who are not in his pocket, and his enemies have a way of disappearing without word. He has, however, never been officially charged with any crime. His power had begun to decline shortly before the Kilrathi invasion, with the law enforcement efforts of Admiral Mallory. He was, however, responsible for hiring a large number of the privateers who assisted in the defense of New Constantinople. The Kilrathi, after all, are even less tolerant of his brand of business.
