Uparmiya Varanlegur Jobias was a Hunyago intellectual and 4th empress of the Bio-Morph Empire. Succeeding Belus V upon his abdication. Her reign from 801 CE to 979 CE, and again from 999 CE to 1025 CE, lasted, if both put together, 224 years, making her the second longest-reigning empress behind Gundrada Joveta. She was succeeded by Ordway Nodons.
Jobias was born in the Southern Mulla UNM enclave in Crom. The daughter of a Cyrus-born intellectual Cyrus Varanlegur and a pre-Destruction anoist named Crom Jobias Rasis from the Rey province. She was raised by her mother and eventually baptised by her father. At this time anoism in cordial relations with the UNM. Until the Siege of Esid and subsequent crackdown forced Jobias to remain a crypto-anoist close to certain death. Removing herself of this faith when she reached adulthood. She then became a student of Sero Fera, along with Anshan Cyrus and Gundrada Joveta. With the discovery of non-morph life, Jobias was caught off by Fera's insistence to wipe away the rovar, pami, yotha, and marduks from the face of the galaxy. Becoming a vocal critic against her former teacher.
Jobias earned the imperial throne in 801 after Belus V abdicated over the empires now immense internal debt. Reforming the economy and reshuffling the complex bureaucracy of the morphist administrations of Enlil, Ninlil, and Ninurta. The first century of her reign saw no major conflicts with neighbors, but did see to further territorial expansion. The discovery of the reptilian Nathair from Bashmu kickstarted an imperial race to bring under one's influence. With the rest failing, she started the Morphist-Nathair War of 979 believing the nathair to have been exhausted. Although initially successful, even landing on Bashmu, in person, near it's planetary capital Agnim. The force she came with however was quickly defeated, and herself captured. A first time for an imperial leader.
The event soon reached the capital. Starting the Twenty Years Anarchy, a period of political instability that saw the ascension of seven claimants. Nevertheless the court still recognized her status as empress. After being a prisoner for twenty whole years, she signed a favourable treaty that recognized their homeworld Bashmu and the Palil system as an independent territory and offered a modest 500k credits in reparations with the promise of an annual 50k. The experience followed back to home, surviving several assassination attempts from those who vied the throne during her captivity.
Jobias willingly abdicated in 1025 CE. A rather peaceful end compared to her predecessors. Leaving Mergen's treasury with a sizable surplus. At the election assembly she endorsed Gundrada Joveta to succeed her. However, the throne ultimately went to general Ordway Nodons. After the Imperial Clash, she led the charge to put him on trial for treason for violating the Esid Agreement. However, he was assassinated before she could see him properly punished. Five years after, Jobias herself was found dead in her home alongside a dau nathair via strangulation.
