Leader of the Raised Bakers Resistance
"The people of Karte are looking to the past trying to find light in the darkness, trying to convince themselves that this fight is not worth fighting.
We want to find something that makes us think that it is better to give up, to stop all of the death and suffering and go back to the time before all this.
And we can't find it. We must continue fighting."
OriginsBorn in 2979 E.Alz on a tiny town south of the City of Dia, capital of Karte, Ararak is a scaly of basilisk phenotype and neutral gender.
When they were 11 years old, Ararak and their family moved to the capital, where their father got a job in an important bakery. Once Ararak was old enough to work, they started helping their father in the bakery, and eventually learned the trade and started working as one of the bakers.
Ararak saw their quality of life decrease as they grew, as the economy of the country kept crumbling in front of their eyes while the furry aristocracy in charge of the kingdom blamed the scalies, calling them lazy and illiterate.
The Decline and Crash of Karte
The Raised Bakers ResistanceArmed with sharp words and an incredible ability to stir up the souls of whoever listened to them, Ararak quickly became a small public figure and got to represent a new socio-political organization, a guild of bakers called the Raised Bakers Resistance.
The Raised Bakers united the workers of several bakeries and related trades under the immediate goals of getting better working conditions for bakers and food providers, lowering taxes and giving more power to the workers, and the long term dream of a monarchy-free Karte, and a horizontal economic and political structure, with no powerful rulers strangling the people that put the food on the tables.
RevolutionAs Ararak rose the bakers and the people around them, other groups were also getting formed all around Karte that, while they all had the intent put on demoting Rastapuj, they had conflicting ideas about what should come after, including on their interest (or lack thereof) on going further to abolish the monarchy, the aristocracy, or the entire political system. Tension started growing between the different guilds, political groups and slowly forming guerrillas, and Ararak quickly saw the potential for disaster brewing. The baker decided to cut the problem from its root and started making dozen of public appearances in as many and as varied locations as they were able to, speaking loudly and clearly about union, about the Kartian folk's shared goals and about compromise.
On an incredibly short span of time, Ararak became liked in most revolutionary circles and started assigning objectives to the guerrillas and moving the general population towards the uprising. On the 5th day of Swimming, 3010 E.Alz, the first many serious conflicts set the climate of a civil war as two armed groups infiltrated Dia's barracks, stole several caches of weapons and then liberated many political prisoners from the dungeons, leaving 5 casualties in the process.
