Fall from grace
He and his family were stripped of their title, property, and privileges following a protracted political battle with an unnamed rival Holder, after which they were sold into slavery. Norid's wife and son both died in forced labor camps, while Norid, thanks to his past Holder status, was treated as a favored slave and managed to survive, swearing vengeance on his enemies.
Over the course of a century, kept alive by his Holder implants, he managed to enter into the service of his rival - who no longer recognized him and simply wanted the prestige of owning a former Holder - and slowly rose in position as a favored slave.
At one point, Norid managed to destroy a luxury yacht carrying his rival's son, although the son survived in suspended animation onboard the wreck of the yacht. When his rival's clone was destroyed, Norid hired Bix Arramida to recover the bodies on the yacht and take them to a cloning facility on Rethan V. There, Norid arranged for the son's body to be used as the new body for the cloning of the boy's father and Norid's own master.
Norid then plotted to kill his master, have him clone into his son's body, and usurp his power. It is unknown whether this plan came to fruition.
