Casey Pemberton is a leading Delveran politician and military officer. He was instrumental in the expansion of the Commonwealth of Lavrasia and the Army of the Commonwealth, and was a prominent advocate of independence from the NottaLottan Empire and the subsequent formation of the Grand Republic of Delvera. He is also noted for proposing and developing the Order of Knights Paragon. He is also son of Amy Brizendine, a leading figure in Delvera.
Career[edit | edit source]
Politics[edit | edit source]
Pemberton was recruited in late 2012 following a conversation with Lord Governor Jordan Brizendine of Commonwealth of Lavrasia, in which he was introduced to the concept of micronationalism. Initially apprehensive, he was soon convinced that this was a great opportunity and founded the District of Altaria as an exclave of the Commonwealth. He drew several of his friends to his banner, doubling the size of the nation. He was granted a commission as a Lieutenant in the Army of the Commonwealth and charged with recruitment in his home city, for which he was commended.
After the 2013 Winter Drill Exercises, he became vocal in support of secession from the NottaLottan Empire. Upon creation of the Grand Republic of Delvera in May, he was appointed to the offices of Governor of Altaria and Vice Consul of the Grand Republic. When First Consul Brizendine attended a Chinese university for a year from 2014-2015, Pemberton took over his official duties, though he regularly consulted the incumbent.
He was elected First Consul in July 2016, defeating incumbent Jordan Brizendine.
Military[edit | edit source]
Pemberton’s military career is distinguished. Upon his entry into the Army of the Commonwealth in January 2013, he was given command of the Delveran Infantry Regiment. After the expansion of the ACL into the Armies of the Moniteau later that month, he was promoted to Captain and named Third Officer of Commonwealth forces. Wernher is responsible for introducing ceremonial drills into the military, a component of discipline and national pride. In the Delveran Armed Services, he currently serves as Adjutant Chief of Staff of the Grand Republican Army, Drill Team Commander, and Republican Signal Officer, his favorite position so far.
Media[edit | edit source]
Casey Pemberton founded the Knowledge Warrior blog, an "alternative news source", in 2015.
Organizations[edit | edit source]
Pemberton developed the idea of the Order of Knights Paragon in early 2015. Later that year, on 31 August, he was elected the Order's first Grand Master.
Controversies[edit | edit source]
He is largely responsible for the creation of the controversial Province of “Pandoria”, whose governor was a friend of his.
Personal Life[edit | edit source]
Pemberton is an active member of the Boy Scouts of America, in which he is an Eagle Scout and a Vigil member of the Order of the Arrow. He is a practicing Christian and attends a Southern Baptist church. He has considered the ministry as a career path. He is a largely conservative political thinker, identifying with many Republican and Libertarian policies and opinions.
Heritage[edit | edit source]
Casey Pemberton claims several prominent relations, including famed US frontiersman Daniel Boone, the entrepreneurial Mellon family, Coca-Cola inventor Dr. John Pemberton, and former British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. It has been suggested that his leadership abilities stem from this heritage.
