Brotherhood of the Golden Lion
The Junhua Republic
Khezia was a girl when the Sakada Clan invaded her homeland. She had just become a teenager when the Sakada established their society, killed her parents, and enslaved her. She had just become a woman when she broke her chains with her bare hands, rallied her fellow slaves, and killed her master. At the end of altercation, she convinced her fellow slaves to pick up what arms they could off the master and his guards and retreat further up river away from the domain of the Sakada clan. The Sakada at first sent a small force, and then a larger one, and then an even larger one still and all met defeat at Khezia's hands.
Along the way, Khezia has discovered the powers that were given to her by the Unconquered Sun. She heard his voice when she broke her chains and it was because of him and his glory that she was able to muster the strength of will to organize her fellow slaves. She began collecting what books and treatises she could and voraciously reading everything. Her experience as a slave had taught her that her powers should be used to the benefit of all and that while she had great force of will, her voice would only be used to unify and not direct without agreement from her countrymen.
At the end of the 20th year of the civil war, Khezia declared the formation of the Junhua Republic after the largest ethnic group in the Kingdom of the Crystal Chrysanthemum. Her legend and her power began to grow and she was put in charge of the Republic's armies. There were others, however, who noticed her strange powers and whispered that she conspired with demons. After taking massive swathes of territory from the Sakada Clan and Colonel Yang, her forces were broad sided by General Chao Ling's advance into the Red Clay river region. Her legend and powers had been the source of her strength, until 5 incredibly powerful and skilled Dragon bloods showed up to kill her. Her rise threatens to be cut short by these mysterious strangers that fight for Chao Ling. Few know whether she'd ever be willing to bow to a re-established monarch or whether she plans something greater.
