Alias

It is a political norm in Sorrenia to adopt an alias, utilising a pseudonym and alternative portrait. Peter's portrait is that of Saint Cuthbert; Thomas' surname also refers to Cuthbert, who is often portrayed with sea animals.

War of the Sorrenian Succession

Peter began his Sorrenian career as a minor figure in the Royal Army during the War of the Sorrenian Succession. Whereas figures such as Michael Disraeli and Phillip Pompeia were propelled by their contribution during this period, Peter remained largely unknown until after the war.

MP for Chester-le-Street

Peter was able to secure the nomination of the New Monarchists for the Chester-le-Street seat. A predominantly working-class and traditionally left-wing town, Peter was seen as unlikely to win the seat. However, he was elected by a margin far larger than was expected by his colleagues.

This was largely attributed to his campaigning abilities, earning him a seat and personal friendship with leading figures, including King Ronald.

During this period, King Ronald began to explore possibilities for Sorrenia's religious stance. Whereas many within his party urged him to create an Anglican church, and those in the opposition party The Republicans demanded a maintenance of secularism, Peter encouraged the king to establish Sorrenia as a distinctly catholic country.

Both Peter and the King were catholic, and ultimately Peter's stance won out, and he was tasked with creating an ecclesiastic body to implement religious law; he ultimately contributed significantly to the Sorrenian Constitution, and created what became the Papal Directorate.

He was ultimately appointed as a member on the Papal Directorate, and resigned his position as MP on the same day.

Papal Representative

Peter became one of five Papal Representatives, who serve for life and legislate on social affairs.

Peter's first significant act on the Directorate was to prohibit the Death penalty, in accordance with Pope Francis' ruling on the matter.

Although the Directorate has not officially ruled on significant affairs since then, its informal advisory rulings have influenced government policy, with their proscriptions of homelessness moderating the government's economic bill.
