This idea of a "short" story is loosely inspired by the Epic of Gilgamesh. A baby boy is found abandoned in a dense rainforest. This is no ordinary baby, it possesses a birthmark typically found in people who hold power in this kingdom and neighboring lands. The boy is raised in secrecy, hidden from a territorial king who wants him murdered. As Otto rises to power, his humility, his qualities that make him a great leader and everything he believes in will take a sharp turn for the worse. He becomes a raving lunatic, starting a bloody, costly war which involves a rival kingdom and a mass invasion of vandals. How will Otto handle the war he created? Will his kingdom support him, or will a revolution be started against him for the state he left it in?
