Sir Dominic Flandry
The Last Knight of TerraBook - 2010
Captain Dominic Flandry has been knighted for his many services to the Terran Empire - an Empire which is old, jaded, and corrupt, as Flandry well knows. And while that "Sir" before his name may be an added attraction to comely ladies, he expects that it will also bring him less welcome attention from envious "colleagues" within the empire. What it is not likely to do is make him more of an object of interest to the Merseians, whose plots he has repeatedly foiled and who are much too aware of how much simpler their plans to replace the Empire would be if he were the LATE Sir Dominic Flandry.
