The Heroes of Heaven's Height
The Amber Succession is an on-going situation involving the question of the next Tri-Khan. Tri-Khan Urahim IV is in his late 70’s, and from a line not known for longevity. His firstborn son, Yahsim, was brave, capable in the field, well-liked by his men and by the people, and possessed of quick judgement and a sense of fairness. Unfortunately he disappeared one night a little over three years ago, leaving his younger brother, Prince Wazhu, a fop and widely considered a weakling, as heir apparent.
Wazhu also has give power-hungry younger half-brothers – Urahim V, Unsa’ali, Shia’ira, Ha’a’siaq II, and Umaan II. It’s almost certain that at least one of them will kill Wazhu to get to the throne – and they may end up killing each other, although they have been thick as thieves until now. Urahim V has been seen frequently in the company of Satrap Ledaal Wu-Joon who appears to be grooming him. Unsa’ali is being wed this Mercreday to Mnemon Corita, and both Shia’ira and Ha’asiaq II have been recently courted by the Guild, according to rumor, anyway.
