Dr. Mona Rittenaur is the best soils scientist of her generation and the wife of Governor Biryar Rittenaur.
Mona has a small round face and wide and dark eyes.
On Laconia, Dr. Rittenaur has been mapping out paths to bring the thousand different biospheres of the Ring network into accord, to engineer everywhere what Auberon had happened onto by chance. This had made her the perfect choice to fill an oversight postion at the Xi-Tamyan Agricultural Concern at Barradan on Auberon. There she would be reporting back to Laconia to a team of soil researchers and agricultural biologists waiting for her to share the insights of Xi-Tamyan and Auberon.
While at Xi-Tamyan she uncovered a scheme by Veronica Dietz to skim profits from patent agreements developed from the research conducted at the agricultural concern. This led her to illegally use Laconian funding for research projects, which would have in turn led to her execution under Laconian law. Her husband began a secret agreement with a local criminal in order to cover up her actions and protect her.
