His main passion during his time as leader of the Union is to see that his large group of followers are well-treated — insofar as to become isolated from the rest of the Shaler.
Ikis dreams of constructing a walled fortress inside Thoridon that becomes an exclusive hall (named Union Hall) for members of the Union only. It would provide for the members, by the members, and have absolutely no relationship with the Institute.
The project was approved after many delays in the Senate House, mostly from objection by the Institute.

His frame is smaller then average and his vocabulary is much stronger than him.
