Herik Pammon was thought to be a surviving citizen from the extinct human colony on Woe Tantalum. He appeared on the 'List of the Dead' in the Empire's central database, registered as a casualty of the disaster which befell the colony. In March 3745 ELC however, as part of a bargain for assistance, information broker Joarn Kages offered Pammon's name to Elm Caden as an example of supposedly dead colonists who were still very much alive and well and roaming the Empire freely (→LOTD).
Pammon has shown himself to be cold, calculating, and remorseless, with a sneering attitude towards human life and an unshakable faith in the goals of Voice. It is not known whether these are aspects of Pammon's original personality, or qualities with which Voice imbues him. On the one occasion when this might have been established Pammon was killed before any significant progress could be made.
The fugitive Maber Castigon encountered Pammon in person. Travelling to Serrofus Major with the intention of killing Jidian Tarrow — an experienced Shard with whom he once associated — Castigon attended at a tavern in the capital city and was approached by Pammon, who appeared to have a similar goal to Castigon at the time. They co-operated to mutual benefit. Castigon was however considerably perturbed by Pammon's sinister personality, and after completing his work on Serrofus Major he could not get away from the man quickly enough (→LOTD).
Castigon was unnerved, to say the least, to later encounter an unidentified female aboard Altakanti Station, who claimed she had met him already and that at the time she "was" Herik Pammon. Although he was unaware of it, it is all but certain that Castigon had in fact encountered two Rasas (→LOTD).
Pammon meanwhile had remained on Serrofus Major, where he whipped up the resentment and rebelliousness he had sown with Castigon and another man, Collis. By the time he left the planet, Pammon had created such a degree of civil discord that thousands of CAGA ground troops had been brought to the surface with a view to restoring order in the capital and surrounding towns. Given that the Shaeld Hratha later deployed an Atmospheric Dispersal Warhead against the planet, it would seem likely that Pammon's goal was to draw those troops to Serrofus Major purely so that they could be infected with the Rasa virus (→TRD).
While still on Serrofus Major, Pammon had an encounter with a fire team of CAGA soldiers. When they discovered he was not who he claimed to be, and he was put in a no-win situation, Pammon evaded capture by eliminating all four soldiers. It is believed that the soldiers were actually killed by a small number of Shaeld Hratha who were accompanying Pammon at the time (→TRD).
After leaving Serrofus major, Pammon travelled to Fort Laeara in company with fellow Rasa Amarist Naeb. There the pair allowed themselves to be captured, after Naeb was recognised by Occre Brant, and they were both incarcerated. It did not take Brant long to figure out that both of them were acting on behalf of Voice, and they offered the ultimatum that the fortress would be destroyed if Doctor Danil Bel-Ures was not handed over to them. This was later revealed to be a ploy intended to force the hand of Eyes and Ears (→TRD).
Pammon is believed to have travelled to Palanda Ire at some point after leaving Fort Laeara, again in company with Amarist Naeb. There they oversaw the final occupation of the capital city, Arroch. Pammon then left to travel to Forge Ruinous, an Imperial stronghold on Lopama (→ASTTS).
