Background: It is time for Fuego to ascend to the role of Imperial Master over Milohai but news of his sister’s death has left a distaste in his family. What weakness does it show to have killed his sibling masked by subterfuge in a strange land? A strong ruler would have challenged his opponent head on, face-to-face, in the open so that no question could be made on his right to rule.
Fuego finds himself facing the difficult task of proving himself once more worthy of rule in the midst of the story of his sister’s dispatch in Birmshire, and to do so before he himself is challenged and replaced by his next-kin cousin.
Celadon has awoken in a fury over his lost sword and mistress. Threats of all encompassing war on the territories who defied his will and wrecked havoc in the midst of his slumber have reached even a province as far removed as Milohai. Fuego is finding his plan to have had the opposite affect on the security of his reign. Mutterings of cowardice and weakness surround him in court; a war declared from the north with no popular support for defense.
In an act of bravery- or foolish desperation- Fuego disappears into the night, flying in the direction of Birmshire to conquer Celadon in a final round of battle.
