Admiral Melius Inato

Admiral Melius Inato (a.k.a. the Able)

A soft, brown eyed young man I assumed was the king of this federation sat down across from me. I had been invited to a roundtable of the most talented men in the Ironfoot isles, yet each time the king only invited one to his table at a time, and more often than not these sages left warmly thanked, but with only a small title like mayor or councilman. A treasured few, maybe ten out of one hundred, got a governorship, generalship, or admiralship. I was already a captain in the Navy, but I had always wanted to be commander of a fleet, or even better, the whole sea. This was my chance.   I look down, and... go? A board game? I ask the man, "What am I to do?" His brown eyes soften even more, and he says one word, crystalline and sharp yet warm. "Play."   I move the pieces one by one, capturing pockets, creating eyes, and drawing his forces in feints. I wanted to control the most territory, but he had to be at least a first-dan master. Even so, I continually gained the advantage.   The man nodded his head, seemingly deep in thought. "An admiralship is a difficult job, but you seem to have more than enough talent and drive to execute the task beautifully. I appoint you Admiral of the Left Fleet. Your home port will be Colren."
