No gods or monsters just man and what he brings
υπάρχει κάτι το ιδιαίτερο για αυτόν τον πλανήτη, πιστεύω ότι δεν είμαστε οι πρώτοι άνθρωποι να εγκατασταθούν εδώ αποδεικτικά στοιχεία είναι περιορισμένα, αλλά αυτός ο πλανήτης είδε τόσο την σκοτεινή εποχή της τεχνολογίας και την ηλικία της Έριδος ……. σκεφτείτε το ενδεχόμενο του. Ως εκ τούτου, παρά τα δόγματα εγκατασταθούν σε αυτό Kyros_

The Planetary Governor is given discretionary control over the administration (including governance, defence and development) of the planet in question. In theory he is duty-bound to the Adeptus Terra. Essentially though, he is an independent governor who can rule his planet as he sees fit with only minimal interference from the Imperium.
On Kyros the Planetary Governor has traditionally been a scion of house Alexandros the original founding mercantile princes. This tradition has faded over time with the individual who gathers sufficient globe influence adopting the Alexandros name as a symbol of their position. The position is not inherited nor is it not inherited, the position is merely filled by an exceptional individual rising to it. One element that is inherited is the seat of governmental power the space port Tinos which serves as one of the few portals to the stars and focus of many imperial and planetary institutions.
To the outside observer the position of imperial governor might seem dangerously tenuous. Yet history has proven once holders have cemented there position in Tinos, as well as what every assess, territory and contacts they rose to the said position with, few can challenge their planetary command.
