"Bizarro Indoril!" Chanted the group gathered around Irulan's tomb. The old family's motto meant "Brave indoril" in a long lost language. Everyone knew how brave Irulan was, and how cruel. After the funeral rites, the members of the Indoril family went their separate ways. The former guardian of Avatarati left behind her three boys and two girls, each one founding a strong branch of one of Avatarati's most powerful families.

It was known that there were other Indoril, Irulan's father had a couple of children and they too grew families, but everybody knew that the important (and ruthless) branch was her offspring. Each one had a trait of her mother, but every single one shared her imposing character.

-"Sigfried, wait!"- barked Alianor, the eldest of the girls, and the 3rd child of Irulan. The one she called had blonde hair, a huge frame reaching almost 2 meters, and a menacing aura.
-"Sister..."- whispered the eldest of the offspring. Sigfried Indoril was known as a man of sparse words.
-"Have you spoken to anyone of the city's council?"-asked Alianor, looking quite troubled. She was never good at hiding her emotions, Sigfried knew that.
-"I have not, is anything important they have to tell me?"- the whisper now turned into a deep, energetic voice.
-"There is an... issue, regarding mother's passing."
Sigfried spoke in a mocking tone -"What is it? that she only died after turning a hundred years old? she grapped the guardian's seat like a vulture for almost a century!"

He saw the tears forming in Alianor's eyes, she loved Irulan the most and was rather shocked with her sudden death. Sigfried reached Alianor more compassionate, he gave her a hug and told her - "Should I go to the town hall or will you tell me?"

Alianor broke in tears, Sigfried knew well that his witty comment didn't cause that. Although the most sensitive of the five, Alianor was a strong woman.

After a few minutes, Alianor managed to speak -"There are some that think mother was... murdered"- this last word she spit it out, like trying to conceal it. Sigfried digested this sentence, analyzing all of its meanings and the background, he then whispered to her ear-"Alianor, are you telling me that the nascram family conspired to kill mother?"- she knew Sigfried would understand the situation, before leaving his hug, Alianor said-"They have declared war with us Sigfried!"

Several days before the funeral, Avatarati needed a new guardian. The title was almost inherited, little power had the council to choose the guardian, just in rare cases where the future guardian lacked the faculty, or the passing guardian died without choosing a sucessor. The former was the case now happening. Although Irulan was very old, she expected to see one of her children as the new guardian, passing the torch to her own blood.

But since her sudden "death" occurred, and without a testament delegating a new guardian, the council took action. They decided none of Irulan's children would be guardian, each one of them would have a personal reason to be choosen and discord would grow in the government, blood would be spilled (some in the council proclaimed) the most "fair" thing to do was to pick the most senior of the members of the council, and who was in this position? no more and no less than Rowan, of the Nascram family, the sworn enemy of the Indoril family.

Turmoil in Avatarati! Bad blood is never a cause for celebration.
