Maurits von Borg is a sixty-eight year old Marquis, head of House Borg, and Prime Minister of Gallia. Mounts von Borg is the current head of the Borg household, a noble family with a long history and strong bonds with the royal family. In the days when Gallia was under Imperial rule, the Borg family enjoyed a life of luxury and prosperity due to their ties with the Emperor. After Gallia won their independence, however, the Borg household's power and wealth gradually dwindled. Waiting patiently for the day when the Borg family might reclaim their former glory, Maurits von Borg clung to what little authority he had left.
