Olban Hensard Duval was the 10th Emperor of the Empire from 2943 to 2991.[1]

Unlike his father, Olban preferred taking a subtle approach to interstellar politics, exemplified by Imperial involvement in disputes in the Liaedin system in 2945,[2] and in Zeaex in 2951, when the Empire empowered Erronsa and Francis Ashfield in their conflict over mining rights with Grambourne Cambridge of the Federation.[3] Olban demonstrated he was not afraid to use force in 2959, when an Imperial strike force with The Emperor's Own invaded the Laedia system and overwhelmed the Federation garrison on Mansfield, an event known as "Lightning Thursday".[4] In 2976, Olban ordered the second major military assembly of his reign in response to the alleged assassination by Federal agents of Francis Ashfield, but conflict was averted when the settlers of Newtown in Zeaex sent a personal appeal to both the Federation and the Empire, which resolved the matter of mining rights and established an uneasy truce.[5]
