kings WILL do such things
Fear is the strongest emotion, other than love.
This society is run by fear.
Adam knows that very well.
His father does too. But he thinks of it differently. He fires up the endless discrimination towards Hybrids and Sorcerers. He exploits it and uses the past wars to scare people into hating those two groups. Everything is for the benefit of the country, he says. Hybrids and Sorcerers are monsters, he says.
Adam knows otherwise.
After Adam, the king of the largest country in the land of Beskiyle, gets married, he craves to get away. To run from the horrible, discriminating country he supposedly "rules."
And when a mysterious foreign man shows up, accompanied by strange fires lit by a bright blue flame, he gets his chance.
