Return of the Scarlet Empress
The Scarlet Empress
The Exalt that was to become the Empress of all Creation seemed to arrive from nowhere. Any records of who she was before the great plague have been lost or destroyed. She is the progenitor of all of the great houses of the Empire and is viewed as the most powerful being alive. Save for the Elemental Dragons themselves. She controlled the houses by pitting them against each other in both physical and mental contests to vie for her favor. Without her constant guiding hand, the houses quickly fell to infighting which eventually brought about the civil war.
