The “Immortal Emperor” is ruler over the Ivory City, within the Ivory Empire–the place my protagonists are trying to reach. There are rumors–that he killed his wife and children in madness, but that one escaped, and that as punishment he was given immortality and put to sleep–a curse to relive these memories for years down the line. And there are rumors still that state that he has awoken once more, tasked to undo what he has started: a war between races. Immortality is a blessing to many who do not know its burden. But to the Immortal Emperor it is a chance at righting a lifetime of strife.
