Kerenza IV
"Am I not merciful?"
This article contains plot details and potential spoilers for the The ILLUMINAE Files series. If you have not begun reading the books or are not too far into the story, please do refrain from reading.

Private Wozniak is one of the members of the Beitech occupation force on Kerenza IV.


Private Wozniak constantly refers to himself in the third person as "The Duke", and always wears his armored bodysuit. He is cocky and seems to care for his friends, but doesn't waver in battle.

Stories Edit

Femme Injury Incident Edit

Duke tells Rhys and Oshiro the story of a time he was getting in the mood with a girl, who apparently enjoyed feet. He was kicked by her in a panic after her parents approached the room, and his tongue was cut off almost completely. He hid in a closet for 4 hours whilst the girl got her parents to leave, and by the time he got to a hospital, it was too late to re-attach the tongue.

Death Edit

Duke's death is caused by Bruno Ways, a friend of Asha Grant's on Kerenza. He is killed after Bruno sets off explosives inside the old school, (then being used for holding BeiTech troops), dying whilst Rhys Lindstrom is away with Asha at the hospital.

His death is exploited later by Asha and Rhys. Rhys takes Duke's dogtags and throws them at Asha, who appears devastated as she lets CO Christie take her away. This allows Rhys to get to Asha easily whilst the battle begins.
