Ulysses Messer X (* 2702; + 2781-08-12, Angeli) was the tenth Imperator of the UEE. He was deposed in a coup d'etat by his own children.

Regency

He became High-Secretary under his uncle and predecessor Galor Messer IX in 2722 and later de-facto regent of the UEE after the old Imperator's health decreased. He became Imperator in 2751,[1] while Galor was still in office.[2]

His reign was overshadowed by tax raisings, stripping of enviromental protections, market deregulation, the elimination of minimum wage and expanded police powers. Treason laws were rewritten and the minimum working age was reduced to age 10.[1]

Ulysses had become aware of the public's growing resentment of the Messer regime and in 2778 attempted to distract the populace with a series of large scale building projects to exemplify the UEE's greatness.[3] Since his appointment as High-Secretary Ulysses spended large amounts of resources for the reconstruction of government buildings.[1]

He prepared the Khanos Stadium on Angeli to be his legacy. This backfired as the Khanos Stadium became a symbolic target for the resistance to aim at.[3][citation needed]

Death

On 2781-08-12, history records that Ulysses Messer was attacked in a bombing of the Khanos Stadium orchestrated by his daughter Fiona Messer. Ulysses ultimately took his own life, after it became clear that his son Linton Messer had control of the military and a coup was imminent.[4]
