Officially he was Minister of Defense Taketomo Kunimichi's deputy, but Kunimichi's real command authority was sharply circumscribed and Admiral Rajampet was the de facto Defense Minister. In addition, he was a quasi-member of the so-called Quintet of senior bureaucrats who controlled League policy, at least regarding military matters. His lack of full-fledged membership among that group was a source of constant irritation to him.
He held his last space-going command before 1871 PD. (SI2)
He was a corrupt man, taking bribes from the Mesan Alignment to help them orchestrate the conflict between the League and the Star Empire of Manticore. In addition, his personality was characterized by belligerence and a fierce resentment of Manticore (for its wealth and disinclination to kowtow to the League's whims). However, shortly after he had received his pay of 3.6 billion credits, a phone call at his home triggered Mesan mind control nanites to force him into killing himself with his own pulser. (HH13)
