Auch wenn der neue König aus derselben Liga der Ultrareichen stammte wie seine Vorgänger, so kam er aus einem anderen extended family, und niemand hätte mit seinem Sieg über die alte Vizekönigin gerechnet.

So sah sich der König mit der prächtigen Eichhörnchenfrisur in den ersten Monate seiner Regentschaft weniger von äußeren Feinden bedroht, als von schattenhaften Mächten aus den Tiefen seines eigenen Reichs.
