A Draconian, Cruel Execution
An ancient Sauthei method of ritual execution
Kyzan returns from the dead, the first Undead, claiming to have looked into the eye of the creator. He rises, strikes down those Amir who remain at his execution site, and frees his generals.
Kyzan gathers the Azukenda, their warriors, and their Families, and personally executes all of them via a Red Baptism which takes several days to complete. He is tireless.
Kyzan writes an Edict that all cross-species Verin offspring are to be killed, and that the sentence for their parents is a Red Baptism.
Kyzan unites the Faeo clans of the north under the common banner of organizing against the other Verin races.
Kyzan forms the Kyzanate, a feudal empire which he reigns over with an iron fist and draconian laws. Smaller outlying tribes who do not bend the knee are killed.
During which Kyzan hunts and kills all members of the Amir
"...and in this you repent for furthering your own weak bloodline," Kyzan snarled, hand firm on the Amir Chief's neck as he held her submerged in the still-hot wine of her children's veins. She thrashed and fought, but it was only in the utter cessation of her movement that he let her go.
