Due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, the King has been crippled beyond recovery, truly an unlucky man.

The pain you experience is unimaginable, but every now and again it gives you a moment of clarity. Perhaps you have been too harsh on these peasants. Never before was there such a thing as a peasant revolt in the empire, surely it was something you did.
Something you did...
Thinking on it, you do wield a lot of power, don't you? The futures of thousands rests upon your shoulders, could someone else out there be like you?
You find the thought unlikely, then again such was your opinion of the revolt as well.
Is it possible for one man to change everything?
Can a single man be more important than the masses?
These thoughts deeply conflict with everything you've known and learned throughout your life. You don't think it's possible to reconcile these positions with one another, maybe you should decide.
It doesn't matter, you don't think it does at least, the opinions of a dying man won't hold sway over the nation, you're sure of it.

You have come to the conclusion that the contribution of a single man, can outweigh the ability of a nation.
As this is merely an opinion you hold, spreading the thought was not an objective, yet conversations with your guards have made your position abundantly clear to them.
While you feel they might begrudge you for this, they profess agreement with your line of thought.

3-3-1-201
You have held on tenaciously and the color has returned to your skin, you are nonetheless doomed. You know this, because your court witch has ceased any attempts at treatment.
Over the last weeks, even twilight cultists have had the audacity to express their admiration for you in person.
You would have had them arrested, had it not been so funny.
With life fading, nothing seems to really upset you anymore.

As death approaches you decide that it is time to hold an election before it is too late, you can't just leave the sun throne vacant.
Your heralds send word across the whole realm, a Donejatehera is in progress.

4-4-1-201
A week has passed and the results are in, now the candidates who made it are on their way to the capital.

1-6-1-201
All those worthy of succession have arrived, you recognize most of them, such as...
Jonno the Drinker - a jolly fellow who lights up every party, legend has it he has never been drunk.
Kibro hur Lapejo - a reserved man oft praised for his investigative ability
Yddo Muxandaz - one of your nephews, he is very popular with women
There is an odd one though
Hiro
he is without affiliation, no lineage, no origin, it is quite unusual. You don't know anything about Hiro and his looks don't give you any indication of who he might be, no one at court seems to be able to tell you anything either.
Well, the vote must proceed.

2-6-1-201
You summon the Alluxilid and begin the debate with what little life is left in you.

The Alluxilid has elected the next Ahunnid: Kibro hur Lapejo
Jonno renounces claim to the throne, professing that he didn't want to be here in the first place, his family pulled a prank on him by entering him for the election.
Yddo does the same, but out of spite, clearly he did not take well to being rejected.
Hiro on the other hand does nothing, he nods and wishes to retain his claim, making him the official Tehero, the Ahunnido's substitute.

3rd, 1st, 2nd - 201
Ninjano hath passed, kicking and screaming.
Thine coronation be shared with the day of thine predecessor's burial, a grim affair.
In the ancient tradition and personal respect for him, thou shalt henceforth be known as Ninjano the second, as thou seat thineself upon the sunthrone.
Thou art now Ashgizo, supreme onnido over all creation.

While he hath left thou a stable realm, he hath as well left a collection of critters, whose ancestors you reckon once belonged to Aitlaz II. They be lively, but also treading the line separating tame from feral.
Thou feel'st the same way about Hiro, a suspect character unknown to the court, yet alleging to boast the acclaim demanded of his competing in the election.

Thou'st uneasiness concerning Hiro hath increased to the point where thou deem'st investigation necessary. Against thine guards' advice thou don'st the garbments of a commoner and trail Hiro secretively.
Though nothing suspect has happened thusfar, thou cannot make a judgment, for shopping and wandering alike are usual activities. He hath bought an uncommon trinket however.
He hath entered a house outside the city which appear'st abandoned, being surrounded by debris of recent conflict.
Hiding underneath the window, thou hear'st him conversing with another, a woman, nay a girl, not yet of age. Thou witness him speaking of a gift, then making a clattering noise - evidently he hath given her the trinket.
Joy spark'st forth inside. A relative, his daughter perhaps.

5th, 1st, 2nd - 201
Dawn of the next day, thou summon'st Hiro to court for private conversation, keeping that which thou have learned to thineself.
He be a most unusual character, devoid of bodily expression, as though thou was conversing with a wall.
Thou do'st learn of his missing heritage, orphaned he claims to have been, never seen a settlement until adulthood. If this assertion be truthful, Hiro was a feral child.
As time go'st on the secret of his alleged fame revealed itself, a few villages bordering Nerfaz lands hail him as their savior. Hiro disputes their acclamation, insisting his feats be exaggerated.

2nd, 3rd, 2nd - 201
Thou procured witnesses of Hiro's heroics, who all attested the same events, albe they all from different villages. Though this confirm'st Hiro's actions, it do'st make him a liar, even if merely to humble himself. Thou still ponder what he'd stand to gain from underselling himself, but in due time thou shalt find it.

Man's ability to tame creation hath fascinated thou since infancy. When possible thou would spend'st thine time, listening to local Berasaz having a Haova. So petty were they at times that they argue'st the color of the sky. From such discourse thou learned to listen for detail, apply logic to the mundane and fantastical alike. Such be the reason thou create'st now an ensemble of Berasaz to argue the color of the sky even in thine absence.
If two be enough to change a child, a hundred can change a nation.

Though consume time it will, not least be it to the pettiness thou value'st so much. Upon completion, thou shalt dub it the Beraxu.

In the little time they've spent here, thine Berasaz have made one complaint upon the other regarding the "feral beasts" wandering about the Salen.
Thou inform'st them that they are the sacred companions of thy predecessors, thou do'st not tolerate ill talk about these creatures.
Thine Berasaz relent, but do suggest improving thy nurturing ability.
Insolent as they may, there be'st truth in their words. Mayhaps thou should consider relinquishing them to more capable hands.
Mayhaps thou should also ponder heeding thine Berasaz outright.
in spite of mundanity, the decision be difficult nevertheless.

Inspite of thine protesting Berasaz thou decide'st to continue thy ancestral legacy and bear'st with the ensemble of critters walking about the Salen.
For this purpose, thou have sent out word of thine desire to employ one skilled in teaching the art of taming.

3rd, 7th, 2nd - 201
Oddly, against thy own expectation, thou have found someone already with this knowledge. Thou await'st eagerly the forthcoming of thy master-to-be, yet all you receive is Hiro.
Thou suppose'st this revelation be logical, he doth be an expert in the matter, having been feral in his youth.
Accepting his tutelage, thou begin'st thine training as of today.

Thine training with Hiro be showing results, the animals of thy predecessor, albeit with caution, have begun to trust thou. Hiro appear'st a true master of his craft, for he achieved utter obedience in the same time. Mayhaps thou should feel'st embarrassed at the prospect of a stranger bonding closer with the descendants of thy own companions, than with thine self.
Thou be'st not that kind of lad however and congratulate Hiro on his accomplishment. He doth naught but nod approvingly, as usual.
Thou consider'st the notion that mayhaps, had things gone differently, he would have made a fine Ashgizo.

As thou ponder'st it dawns upon thee that thou has't spent too much time settling into palace life and thinking with thine Berasaz.
Thou deem'st it necessary then that the Empire take a firm stance on what it wants, what thou want'st.

What be'st an appropriate course of action to success, thou judge'st, be a reform of currency. At present, money be distributed too unevenly across the realm, exacerbated by the limited amount of coinage. Moreover, common complaints and thy own experience make evident that carrying coins poses a burden for most.

There be'st other issues in the realm however. One such instance be'st the recent unrests, stirred by thine predecessor. It is vital that any remaining controversies be resolved, before another revolt might break lose. Thou have'st yet the support of the masses.

Not to be forgotten however, be an issue with one man. Ahulzoro Hur Zunbendik, who has't gained infamy in Ürallux for violating the Statute of Bendirigz in his retaliatory campaigns against the Pariz.

Using thine divine authority, thou issue'st an order to cease to Ahulzoro, lest thou put an end to his transgressions personally.

5th, 1st, 3rd - 201
Ahulzoro Hur Zunbendik has replied to thy request in a most impudent manner. A barrage of slurs and insults to thy name art written in remarkable efficiency upon a single sheet of paper that doth proclaim'st thou a Slave and a Woman's-substitute.
Disappointed in such barbarity, thou doth'st what any sensible ruler must; thou strip'st his right to righteous treatment of him, declare him a traitor, put a bounty on his head and finally, write down a new set of laws, pertaining to the Statute of Bendirigz.
These laws include the clause, that although lesser, the uncivilized are human regardless, as such undeserving of barbarity.
Further, they define a clear set of punishments, to be applied in accordance to the scale of the crime committed.
And lastly the right of the public to punish those that the law has confirmed as evil-doers, at their leisure, should no retribution be committed by the Empire in a 15 days period.
Public retributions, when done in accordance to the law, are to be awarded by the Empire, to serve as example for all.

After the passing of these laws, thou take'st a break from this business and spend thine time on other matters.
