Background: After his return to Milohai, Fuego was pulled aside by his father.
“For years, we’ve allowed both you and your sister to have an equal part in the power of this family- but only one of you may ascend to the greatness of Imperial Ruler of Milohai. To us, you are equal. It is your decisions now that will distinguish which of you will remain to rule and which will be eliminated from our bloodline. Protect our line at all costs, but consider what place you wish to serve in it with your actions.”
Eight decades have passed, a blink of an eye to a dragon, and Fuego still seeks a way to eliminate threats to his own rule without undermining the structural security of his extended family or kingdom.
The news from Birmshire is that Celadon has gone into his second hibernation; leaving his warmage lover in command in his absence. A plan stirs.
“Dear sister,” he muses, “would the wealth of Celadon’s territory not be a wonderful gift for our own family? And what a gesture to herald a new age of dual-reign would it be if we were to retrieve the most symbolic treasure of his hoard, The Windsword?”
Fiera blinks slowly in the sunlight, rolling and flicking her tail in modest intrigue. “Indeeeeed, brother….” she purrs, “…this place is becoming so incredibly dull. We have no purpose here at the moment, so why not have some fun before we are tied to this paradise of ennui?”
The stage has been set. Though they are an identical match, Fuego is sure that, with the element of surprise, his sister can be easily dispatched in a quiet manner on grounds away from home.
