Meet the Planeteers #4 - Count Ventura

Things are heating up as Rayguns and Rocketships roars closer to our galaxy. I thought an introduction to the characters, technology and places you will encounter in the game was in order. This time we meet the galaxy's more charming characters Count Ventura.

The Star Pirates are secretly led by Count Ventura, a nobleman who lives a double life. By day, the Count can be found attending gala balls and rallying others to support the construction of the second sun project. He is thought by many to be merely a smooth-talking silver-tongued rogue. But in reality, the Count is a ruthless pirate who is as skilled his circuit sword as he is with his words. 

Count Ventura intends to use the current upheaval in the galaxy to increase his personal power and wealth. He is as a deadly opponent in combat who gives his victims no quarter. However, there is one victim whom the Count will always spare - the Princess Persevone of Vaporia whom the Count is desperately infatuated with.
