Chip Matthews is the cousin to Matt and Mathais Matthew and the pilot of the Binary Tactical Cosmic Hellcat unit, CH-42, commanded by his best friend, Marko Cain. It is thought that Matthews was stationed in with Cain as he was the only person that would agree to work with him.
Lord High Inquisitor is the proper title for the ruler of the Rigellian Empire, but the current Lord High Inquisitor has held the title for so long (far longer than the lifespans of your average Rigellian) that no one living remembers how he became installed in the post or even what his name or origins were before he achieved it, not even his nephew Frank. As the Inquisitor was recently sucked into a small spontaneously occurring black hole, Frank has assumed control of the Empire.
Marko Cain was a cadet in the same class as Amaya Solace and Nikki Kitai. For a time he dated Katt Tuesday and shared a rivalry with Tybalt Prince who also vied for their affections. He is something of a mischievous bad boy with a large ego, but upon graduating managed to be given the command of a Binary Tactical Cosmic Hellcats unit, the CH-42, along side is best friend, Chip Matthews.
