Zandar Alvena, Emperor of the Zandranian civilization, is an Alverian living in the Zandrania System, 53.9 light-years from Earth. He became leader of the Zandranian civilization, not long after the death of his father, Emperor Boran Alvena'ora, and then his brother, Emperor Borana Alvena, became Emperor of the Alverian Federation. Zandar is married to Empress Rinavonia Zandrana Alvena. After some time after Zandar Alvena ascended to the throne as Emperor, the Zandranian civilization broke free from colonial rule and became independent. Before colonial rule, his mother, Fedania Alvena'ora, was Queen of the Kingdom of Zandrania until former Alverian Emperor Boran Alvena'ora married her and she became Grand Queen of the Alverian Federation in a union with the Zandranians.
The relationship between Zandar and his brother became very hostile when Zandar decided to break apart the union between the Zandranians and the Alverians and himself leave behind the Alverian civilization and join together with the Zandranians to become their Emperor. His wife, Rinavonia Zandrana Alvena, who is a Zandranian, became the Empress of the Zandranian Federation.
