Lord Hiram Neville Sapie

Very pale, and skinny.
Has a sharp chin
Apparel & Accessories
Wears rich clothes and often very gaudy. Wears a lot of bright colors that clash.
Hiram was the youngest of nine siblings in the wealthy Sapier family. Though he was the youngest, he was no less neglected by his parents, however their efforts largely went to waste. Hiram definitely wasn't the brightest of the Sapie children, but he was backed by the enormous wealth of his parents. That wealth got him all the way to a position in the Machinators as a "legal consultant." He was never really involved in buiding the city, but his parents pulled some strings to get Hiram officially credited for the entire project. He, and his young family, were given a position as an advisor to the newly-appointed governor, and that title has remained in the family ever since.
Had several failed jobs as a lawyer, eventually hired for the Machinators by pullings strings within the government

Towards Akane (Oshinokouji) Sapie
Towards Hiram Sapie
Akane was born into a high-ranking family in Japan, and came as part of a diplomatic envoy to London. Hiram Sapie became enamored with her, and asked for her hand in marriage. Secretly, Akane always hated Hiram, and wished to move away from the dreary Victoriam City. Hiram also grew to dislike Akane as she aged, and is believed to have had many affairs.
Towards Jothan Sixsmith
Towards Hiram Sapie
Sapie and Sixsmith were both involved in creating the Victoriam City, however Hiram was more involved with the relations, business, and legal aspects of the city itself. When the city was completed, Hiram took credit for the project, and although Sixsmith's name was known, he was never given credit for all the work that they did.
They have a strictly professional relationship, and Sixsmith greatly resents Sapie for falsely taking credit for Victoriam City.
