Peace at Castle Unbreakablecopyright protection12PENANAaJZ9oLa5h6

8th Era, 478 14th of Falling Knightcopyright protection12PENANAuLB3PL0bey

Continent of Mordurel, Spring Forest Region, Castle Unbreakablecopyright protection12PENANAFfiNQbg4b4

Six months after his victory at Piontar River Ku faced the victory he had expected, the victory he had promised him empress. It was time for a peace treaty to be signed, and he saw the laughable irony in that. They were signing the peace treaty in an elven castle named Unbreakable after the elves ancient beliefs that there had been unbreakable. Though the Kyroshi Empire wasn’t the first to break them. That glory fell to the Sarrandhi Khanate many centuries ago.copyright protection12PENANAHmNGvbrGhJ

He wore the purple and golden detailed long coat of a Kyroshi officer corps. Like all the Kyroshi long coats worn by the soldiers it was made out of silk. Since Falling Knight was the second month of fall he wore a wool scarf around his neck against the slightly cold breeze.copyright protection12PENANAMMunQj9Quo

The envoy he was part of had been escorted here by a Regiments worth of Immortal Guard. Since the empress’s brother was here and the empress herself it made sense. Her safety couldn’t be given to anyone lesser but an Immortal. In silence, with their purple robes they surrounded the empress. Katanas on their backs and Jaeshi Muskets ready if the Sun elves betrayed them.copyright protection12PENANApaDHXtTdy5

He walked beside the young empress’s brother, Archduke and ambassador Daisuke Shienyashi. He was dressed in traditional silken robes and because of his royal blood those robes was purple. The color of the glorious Shienyashi Family who had ruled the empire for thousands of years.copyright protection12PENANAhfr5VWhnDz

“Did you meet the elven monarch on your diplomatic visit my lord?” Ku inquired in a whisper as they were escorted to the great hall where they would sign the treaty.copyright protection12PENANA7plBMcUW2p

“No,” Daisuke replied, also in a whisper, raising his bushy eyebrows. “Nobody sees the emperor eternal. The fact that he is here means that they know how poor their situation is. Though we knew that given all the territory and concessions they grant us in the treaty.” A smile rose on his pale lips. “Thanks to you General Ku.”copyright protection12PENANAkrzX9xr3LZ

Ku titled his head forward.copyright protection12PENANA83ez8awqy9

“I am merely a servant of the empress and the empire,” he answered.copyright protection12PENANA0FylhlychA

Daisuke arched his bushy eyebrows, noting the order Ku stated those two things in.copyright protection12PENANACC2czcJ1fu

They were led into the great hall. Tapestries covered the walls in an attempt to make the hall worthy of the emperor eternal and a throne of the purest gold and covered in rubies was there, sitting across a throne of silver. On the golden throne sat the emperor eternal, surrounded by Sun elf guards in silver armor and a few Princes from the high nobility.copyright protection12PENANA0nyfXHqt7Z

What surprised Ku was that the emperor was a boy. It couldn’t be more than ten. He had the impression that the emperor eternal was an elderly man around his six hundreds. He quickly summarized that the boy was the heir. But that brought up the question as to why a man of six hundred only had a son of ten? He didn’t have time to ponder that question further as it was time for the customary royal introductions.copyright protection12PENANAC7FbtWx18O

One of the elven princes stepped forward, his old legs trembling as he stroked his long grey-golden beard, same color as his long wavy hair. He leaned on a cane and Ku noticed that his eyes was a clouded shade of grey. The elf was blind.copyright protection12PENANACLrFX0RH27

“I introduce to you, Emperor Eternal Zil-Qi of the Eighteenth Emerald, divine monarch of the Great Sapphire Empire, the eighteenth sovereign of the Emerald bloodline,” he said with a surprisingly strong and firm. Ku didn’t pay much attention to the names of the dozen princes stated by the old man.copyright protection12PENANAc2vKisrIVz

The brown-golden haired boy sat nervously on his throne, silently staring at the empress.copyright protection12PENANAIyGnJajhcs

So it came to Archduke Daisuke to introduce their side.copyright protection12PENANA5OdxubylSA

“Majesty, May I introduce The Great Dragon, ruler of the Kyroshi Empire, Empress Yana I of the Shienyashi Family,” he gestured to the twenty-seven year old monarch.copyright protection12PENANAt4DYOVqgEm

The pale skinned empress sat down in the silver throne, smiling at the young emperor eternal, who shyly looks away. He can’t help but glance though, intrigued by her pale skin, violet eyes and snow white hair. He had probably never seen anyone with those traits before Ku figured. She was one of a kind, no doubt.copyright protection12PENANAPmUvKEG3VS

Daisuke leaned closer to Ku and he leaned closer to him.copyright protection12PENANAw1HJzbV7xN

“When this treaty is signed there is another post for you,” he whispered as the pleasantries continued. Ku just listened. “There is a situation with our Triseccii Tribe. Basically they aren’t doing the job of a tributary state so I am going there to deal with them. I want you to command the military portion of it all.”copyright protection12PENANAH0RkZGgpWU

“What’s the task?” Ku inquired, whispering.copyright protection12PENANAMLhHh1mX5h

Daisuke offered the empress and emperor eternal a glance before answering, “Consolidating our hold there. Convince unhappy tribal Chieftains that they should fall in line and help the Triseccii undisciplined army to secure the border to the north.”copyright protection12PENANAQBjylSJgZh

Ku would commit to the task, though he had hoped to retake the parts of the Ruby Highlands conquered several decades ago by the Kingdom of Culhaven. He just had to wait and hope.copyright protection12PENANA4HiV1hCiGy

The old prince had a servant place the treaty on the table. The young emperor eternal signed first, his small hands shook as he did so. Then Empress Yana lifted her pale gentle hands and signed the document, thus ending the war and claiming a large swath of elven soil. Thus her first war was a proven success.copyright protection12PENANActkuaBvwzB

Ku straightened his tall, skinny frame and locked his fingers behind his back. he fought of his next post. The Triseccii. So he was off to their capital, Trisectum. It amused him that the barbarians didn’t even have a capital before Empress Yana’s grandmother made them a tributary, to pay the empire tribute and defend their northern borders on the mainland. He sucked in air through his nose and out through his mouth. He hoped this diplomatic crap would be over soon. He wasn’t a diplomat, but a general.copyright protection12PENANAOqc8Yy1IO1
