Recently, political developments on Regulus have been extremely duplicitous. For centuries, Regulan representatives have been a leading voice of the loyal opposition in the Free Worlds Parliament. The possibility of secession from the Free Worlds has arisen, but Derick Cameron-Jones fears Capellan intervention more than he resents Marik mercantile guidelines. The mercurial Dame Humphreys, Duchess of Andurien, has sounded out Cameron-Jones on the subjects of secession, bloodless coups, and formation of a sixth Successor House, but how far these ideas have gone is open to conjecture. ComStar believes that Cameron-Jones is using the Duchess as a stalking horse for his own political purposes, which are more economic than political. Tradition notwithstanding, there is no way of guessing whose side he might join if it comes to a showdown between the Marik and the Duchess.
Regulus is also the homeworld of the Free Worlds' most popular entertainer, John "Icepick" Melton, a man of many talents who never performs the same act twice. Actor, comedian, musician, performance artist, and magician, he presents the illusion of singing underwater, makes large musical instruments appear and disappear by slight of hand, and levitates his audience while holotaping live comedies. He takes pride in never having let one minute of redeeming social value into any of his performances, and fans from Delcour to Claybrooke attest that his show is the most fun they ever had in a theater.
