The Lukokish Poetic Tradition

This is written like it was an article in a Sheesanian encyclopedia, or some other Sheesanian educational publication.

In translations of traditional Lukokish literature, you will often find such poetic descriptions as this:

Night came fast and black like dark ink from an angry hand.

In the original Lukokish version, however, you would find only this:

Night d*[1] um fast and black.

Or perhaps:

Night d* um like dark ink.

This is because that simile is part of the Lukokish poetic tradition, a canon of short Lukokish poetry frequently referred to in traditional literature. For the given example, if you were reading the Lukokish version and had thoroughly studied the poetic tradition, you would recognize the reference and get a deeper meaning from that statement. (In one instance of this phrase, for example, the “angry hand” is a clue that the gods are angry during this part of the story.) The word um after d* means that no default meaning should apply, and is frequently used in such references.

Today, the official poetic tradition is set and immutable, but Lukokish authors do refer to non-official poetry, too. The question is: how did the tradition begin, how was it added to and changed (it definitely was), and how did it eventually get set and canonized? Legend has it that the first king of Lukok and Laguina, Hosultë, began it (just as he supposedly began many other things), but since Lukokish was written on paper or animal skins early on, almost no writing would have survived. Later on, however, we find a few fragments seeming to be from books of this poetry, a bit similar to modern encyclopedias of the tradition. In the annals of the fifth king after Hosultë, we find note of a day when “the writers/poets gathered their work for the king to look at, and he chose five passages and wrote them in the book of observations/poetry [the word “observation” and the word “poem” are the same].” During the reign of the eighth king after Hosultë, who initiated many reforms, the writer of annals mentions a project to “weed out and plant in the flower bed of the book of observations/poetry” several times. (The poetic language can be attributed to the fact that the writer of annals was a trained author.) Could this be how the collection was changed?

By the 1350’s, the poetic tradition was largely set. The only changes were small updates to archaic language, which stopped by the 1430’s. Now, the lack of addition or changes had made the tradition both archaic and stagnant, which might mean that it will eventually be completely discarded, or at least never referenced in new literature. Of course, thousands of works of traditional Lukokish literature constantly refer to it, so it would be difficult for it to be completely forgotten.

Today you can buy encyclopedias of the tradition, neatly sorted by nouns and descriptors. These encyclopedias also often have guides to finding references in literature, among other helps. While people did have such sorted collections hundreds of years ago, anybody who wanted to be “educated” had to thoroughly study at least the most used similes in the tradition. Even today, Lukokish schoolchildren have to study some of the canon.

A typical page in an encylopedia of the tradition is like this. Traditionally, the large words were in calligraphy, and the smaller ones in normal ink. The better encyclopedias also note who wrote the line of poetry, if it is known, and when.

23 Night

1 came

1 blank like a black stone ready for the chisel

2 carefully as a shadow returning with the lowering of the sun

3 l. dark ink, see 6

4 dull and quick, a blow, heavy and soaked with rain, upon the earth

5 empty, see 1

6 fast and black like dark ink from an angry hand’s brush

[…and so on…]


[…and so on…]

To refer to a particular simile, you could say, for example, 23.1.6 for the fast and black one. Or, night.came.6, or

[1] d* stands for a collection of words that all start with d. They are basically verbs, taking on different meanings based on what the subject and object is. For example, if you say “The boy d* the ball,” it would mean “throw.” If you say, “I d* dinner,” it would mean “eat.” However, as later explained, if it is followed by um, no meaning is applied, and all the word does is say whether it’s past tense, present tense, etc.

Members of the World Union, 1500-1505

The World Union, Sheesania’s governing body, is composed of ministers from each generally recognized country, representatives from generally disputed territories, a committee of representatives from each continent and two advisors, and finally a World Minister to direct, lead and organize it all. The country ministers can vote on treaties, international laws and other matters; the representatives can give speeches and advise the ministers, but they cannot vote.

The World Union is pretty powerful, mostly because it has the power of Unia and Jacia, Sheesania’s most powerful countries, behind it. It does a fairly good job of getting treaties signed and obeyed, and it certainly tries to promote human rights, but with limited success. Some people see the World Union as just being the playing field for a giant power struggle between the major countries of Sheesania; others see it as a great charitable organization for the advancement of humankind. The fact is that the members of the World Union are perfectly human, and therefore are somewhere between these two extremes.

The list of countries is too long to go over, but here’s an overview of the disputed territories and the countries with representatives in the Sheesania Committee. “Fircudia” is the name for the myriad of small islands nearby the continent of Lukok, which are mostly too disorganized to ever have a good chance of becoming an independent country. Phrox is a medium-sized island between Bonnalunom and Farhausen, which Sengoria still stubbornly holds on to – despite the fact that neither the rulers nor the native people are Sengorian; the rulers are only originally Sengorian. “Muhiiwuh” is the name for a group of islands in Fircudia inhabited by the descendants of the non-human (but similar to humans) Muhii, who have mixed a lot with humans. Tazhoma is an island fairly near Grecia which is an international dumping ground for criminals, but which has done amazingly well. (After all, see how good Australia has got along!)

Now for an overview of the countries with representatives in the Sheesania Committee. These countries are mostly major players internationally and in their continent, and they were chosen to join the extra-powerful Sheesania Committee for this reason. The Sheesania Committee serves as the ruling body of the World Union – it decides WU policies and makes any emergency decisions. Jacia (Kerisin Latevi) is a very powerful, democratic, rights-oriented, liberal country, one of the two big Sheesanian superpowers. Unia (Jacques Firusolvi), the second superpower, is larger than Jacia, but more conservative and oriented towards logic and reasoning. Unia is definitely very class-oriented, and has a rigid social structure, in contrast to Jacia, where social classes are at least not supposed to be there at all. These two countries dominate Sheesania’s politics much in the way large countries like the United States and China do in the real world. Sengoria (Revuron Cor-Locia) is realistically not too powerful in her home continent, Farhausen, but is a friend of Unia and Jacia and has a solid economy and government. Lastines (Norac Yem) was put on the Sheesania Committee as the representative of the continent of Grecia because Lastines is the seat of the World Union, and so has become the most powerful country in Grecia. Deisororgree (Meirkelee Theisul) is the most successful, technologically advanced, and generally together country in Tarbsinnia, despite the fact that it remains mostly a farming country. Monjae (Kehly Oami) is one of the better countries in the rather poor continent of Bodia, but that’s about all it has to make it special. Lukok (Dovrian Rèn) controls an amazingly large number of isolated islands for its size, and Lukok has dominated her continent’s foreign relations ever since it had foreign relations. Egeld (Dathis Nutica) is an industrial giant and has a fairly solid economy and government, in addition to being the most advanced country in Lufitantha, her continent. Jawswina (Chichon Yawi) controlled most of her continent Navilila for decades, and has strong industry and agriculture. Finally, Obtobai (Ifthalen Koyskālai) ruled the rest of Thomorai for a good few centuries (other Thomoraii countries still speak an Obtobian language), and today is a center for science and learning.

This list is current for the World Union term between 1500 (the current year in Sheesania) and 1505. A * next to a name means that that person is different from the person in the last term; a ° means that they are a member of the Sheesania Committee.

Atisos Amisos Fret

The Atisos Amisos Fret is a fretoriod reserve built by King Amisos Ilami. This is one of the first articles I wrote with real pictures 🙂

Atisos Amisos Fret

The main building of the Atisos Amisos Fret

The Atisos Amisos Fret [literally: Amisos Fretoriod Reserve] is a fretoriod reserve in northern Sengoria. It was built by Amisos Ilami, one of the kings of Sengoria, in the fourth year of his reign.[1] The Atisos Amisos Fret keeps more than 500 herds of wild tarafrets, fenifrets, and kapafrets, as well as a Center for Pinifrettes that cares for 250 pairs of pinifrettes. It also includes a luxury hotel, the Palaceo le Pinifrette, on the grounds.[2]

King Amisos built the Atisos Amisos Fret in the fourth year of his reign after having trouble with the court ladies. He believed that building a fretoriod reserve that kept pinifrettes would help them to “stop bothering me about all the fretoriod hunts that are going on”.[1] Amisos’s Minister of Building, Nolikane Nyn, oversaw the project.[2] The building took eight months.[3] The original reserve contained only a main building which included pinifrette lodgings, the Palaceo le Pinifrette, and a small tarafret pasture. Later on he built a separate Center for Pinifrettes, expanded the tarafret pasture, and added some new exhibits on fretoriods and their history at the main building.[2] Kings after Amisos also added new buildings and exhibits, and expanded many of the new ones.[3] Today it includes a museum built by former president Lashamet Monsili.[2]


The grounds of the Atisos Amisos Fret span 10 square miles in northern Sengoria, covering the former property of Amisos-era Monsili lord Tusalle Quequas-Monsili. Approximately half encompasses the tarafret pastures, while the Center for Pinifrettes takes up around a quarter. The remaining contains the main building, museum, and Palaceo le Pinifrette.[2]

Main building

The main building contains exhibits on fretoriods, including a hands-on children’s exhibit involving fretoriods to play with. Besides this, there are information desks, places to rent rooms at the Palaceo le Pinifrette, booths for purchasing guided tours, a book shop, resturants, play areas for young children, and a place where visitors can leave their seakitties. There are also many rooms available for visitors not wanting to stay at the Palaceo le Pinifrette.[2]

Palaceo le Pinifrette

The Palaceo le Pinifrette

The Palaceo le Pinifrette, located close to the main building, is a five-star hotel with a pinifrette theme. It contains 250 rooms ranging from small, medium-priced bedrooms to very large and expensive five-room suites.[2] Historically this hotel included pinifrette care services, but after the decline in popularity of pinifrettes as pets, these are no longer offered.[3] Some of the servants and waiters are trained fretoriods, bred to look similar to pinifrettes. There is also a well-known pinifrette statue made out of glass jewelry and a pinifrette supplies shop that includes Amisos-era style pinifrette accessories.[2]

Center for Pinifrettes

The Center for Pinifrettes is a building dedicated to pinifrettes, including 250 pairs of purebred pinifrettes, exhibits on history, interesting facts, and care, and several pinifrette-oriented shops. It also has a small movie theater where movies related to pinifrettes are shown.[2] The Center also sells pinifrettes, which is the main source of revenue for the Atisos Amisos Fret.[3]

Tarafret pasture

The tarafret pasture

The Tarafret Pasture, situated in the northern area of the Atisos Amisos Fret, is a large pasture area where around 500 herds of wild tarafrets live. It includes a few miles of wooden walkways for visitors wishing to see the tarafrets.[2] This section was originally built and run by Minser Aliat Ilami, the brother of King Amisosand a fretoriod expert.[4] The number of fretoriod herds occupying this area has increased considerably over the years, as the original number was five, and there are currently about 500.[2]


A museum dedicated to fretoriod history, including exhibits on handy fretoriods, Tarafret Language,pinifrettes, and warrior fretoriods, is located near the main building. The museum also has a “Hands-On” section for children with real fretoriods, stories, short movies, and games.[2] It was originally built byLashamet Monsili, a former president of Sengoria.[3]

A tarafret is a kind of animal that speaks like this: “Chee chee veeveeveeveeeee! Aieee!” and looks like a gray kangaroo with a small tail.


The tarafret is a kind of fretoriod that lives in Taramor lands, which are in northern Sengoria. They are known for having thick gray fur and being as tall as a ten-year-old when full-grown.[1]

Tarafrets usually have a thick gray coat (though some kinds have brown or white coats). Unlike other fretoriods, they also have large pouches, and their toes are spread out to aid them in walking on the mud that covers most of their habitat.[1] Besides this, the fur of tarafrets is waterproof, which helps to keep them warm. Full-grown tarafrets are the size of a ten-year-old,[2] though they have been known to grow to the size of a normal adult.[3] When first born they are the size of a newborn baby and covered all over in thin white fur.

Distribution and habitat

Tarafrets live mostly in northern Sengoria, particularly in Taramor lands.[2] However, they are spread across the world in zoos, most notably the Mitzduran Zoo, which has an exhibit of 23 tarafrets.[4] They have also been shown to be able to live in other mudland areas, such as Chaccia, the valleys of Alphia, and some other countries.[5]


Social behavior

Like other wild fretoriods, tarafrets live in herds of eight to fifteen. They usually consist of one male, several females, and their young.[1] Usually the young tarafrets will leave the herd and join others when older, thus preventing inbreeding.[2] The herd lives together in a communal den, shares food, and moves around together. They also hunt as a team, and will occasionally join up with other herds to pursue difficult prey.[6]Tarafrets in a herd will often engage in play and groom each other, which many experts suggest helps strengthen social bonds.[6] These fretoriods also speak a relatively advanced language similar to Seakitty Language, dubbed Tarafret Language. Baby tarafrets begin speaking in this language when they are around two months old.[7]


Tarafrets hunt together in a herd, mostly preying on other fretoriods, seakitties, mud cashewts, ikhals, mudfish, and salamanders. When hunting larger prey, such as other fretoriods or seakitties, they split up into groups and ambush their prey, then eat together. Occasionally herds will join together, particularly when groups of seakitties are passing by.[8] When hunting easier prey, such as mud cashewts, ikhals, mudfish, and salamanders, tarafrets will still go together in herds, but will usually stay together in one group.[2] Sometimes young tarafrets will hunt on their own, mostly with no success.[7]

Tarafrets and humans

Tarafrets have long been hunted for their warm, thick fur, mostly by the local Taramor. However, the Taramor will also often befriend tarafrets and use them as hunters, handy fretoriods or just companions. Interestingly, tarafrets have sometimes been used to hunt other tarafrets.[7] In some areas of the world, such as Carafilier and Azon, tarafret meat is a delicacy.[1] Taramor also enjoy tarafret meat.[2]

The Belltower

The Belltower – the most valuable, the most mysterious, and the most riddle-ridden house in Sheesania.

The Belltower

The bell tower of the Belltower from the nearby village

The Belltower is a famous residence constructed by poet and writer Alsia Belle Donelly. It was owned in the last decade by eighteen different people, and a court case continues on who it really belongs to.[1] This building is famous for its many secret passages, secret rooms, messages, and items hidden within the construction.[2] It is located in the Province of Yance in Carafilier.[3]

The Belltower was built thirty-five years ago by poet and writer Alsia Belle Donelly. Her daughter Fairy was born soon afterward.[4] Alsia lived in this mansion until her death eleven years later. However, Fairy lived in a nearby house, and only took up residence in the Belltower after her mother died.[1] However, Alsia specified in her will that Fairy should only have possession of the Belltower until she was twenty, at which Fairy’s husband would first get it, and if she had no husband, the next Duke or Duchess of Yance; and if there was no decided Duke or Duchess, a friend chosen by Fairy. Fairy did not marry and put herself in line to become Duchess of Yance.[5]

Fairy Donelly did acquire the Belltower once her mother died, but soon afterwards, Olas Vvedi, the current Duke of Yance, brought a case against her in court.[6] Duke Olas won and took possession of it.[6] However, soon afterwards, a eighteen-year-old girl, Rez Aduolohn, was found to be the oldest daughter of the Duke before Olas. Olas, who was a nephew of the previous Duke, was forced to give up Yance to Rez.[6]The Belltower came along with the province. However, Duchess Rez did not care much for the Belltower:

I admit that the Belltower is pretty neat…it’s constructed well, and all that…but at the same time, I don’t want it. I don’t really care for it. And I’m aware that there are lots of people who would almost give their lives to own it…So I’m thinking about giving it up to someone or other, though I’m not sure who, so I could use a little help.[7]– Duchess of Yance Rez Aduolohn

This comment spurred hundreds of people to petition to Rez for the Belltower. She eventually chose Lonnibar Thuture, her half-brother, to inherit the Belltower.[8] However, Lonnibar was assassinated a week after he moved in by Ashripol Kalafo, one of the many people who petitioned for the Belltower.[9] Duchess Rez hunted Ashripol down and put him in jail.[6]

After this event, Duchess Rez gave the Belltower to a quarter-Muhii, quarter-Phrox, half-Sengorian friend of hers, Ippi Feni. However, Ippi then immediately sold the Belltower to his girlfriend, Atua Wuta, for eighteen million dollars.[10] Atua, not wanting to be outdone, then sold it for thirty-five million.[11] This continued on for quite a while until it was finally sold to the seventeenth buyer for fifty-five billion dollars to a rich Uniatic businessman, Thomas Wagoneer.[12] However, when Thomas was convicted of several crimes and fined a billion dollars, he gave the Belltower to the government to pay the fine. It fell into the hands of government official Nikita Geznioi.[13] There is currently a court case going on about who it belongs to.[6]

Location and construction

The Belltower is located in central Yance, a province of Carafilier. It is a round building with a very high belltower in the center, with a square mile of garden in the back. It is located on the top of the highest hill in Yance, Kotabowi Hill, and three miles from the village of Thesina.[3] The Belltower is constructed from a large amount of materials, from solid carved oak to aluminum to New Freenchese hollow sprigglewood.[3]

The construction of the Belltower took several years, and it cost approximately $6,000,000 (six million) American dollars.[14] Alsia Belle Donelly hired many local builders for the project, which earned her the support of the Duke of Yance.[15] However, she did not hire an architect, as she had previously worked on plans for the house from when she was only fourteen.[3]

The Belltower in popular culture

The Belltower has become a well-known topic in popular culture. Magazine, newspapers, books, and bloggers have all snatched up the story, especially the many mysteries surrounding the information hidden within the Belltower.[3] Some of the more famous articles are listed below.

  • Famous Sheesanian blogger Lapi Tyick wrote an article entitled “10 reasons to steer clear of the Belltower”, which listed many old legends about curses regarding the hill upon which it was built, as well as some newer myths.[16]
  • Tomas Etcarin wrote a well-known book that is a tour of the Belltower and an exploration of its story.
  • UuJacia, a Jacian tabloid magazine, carried an article that tried to explain the reasons behind Alsia Belle Donelly’s building the Belltower.[17]

Fairy Donelly

A young (though perhaps not innocent…) girl entwined in the mysterious events surrounding the Belltower, Sheesania’s most cryptic house.

Fairy Donelly

Fairy Donelly was a writer, phrosier, and dancer. She was the daughter of poet Alsia Belle Donelly. Donelly is particularly famous for her controversial novel, The Corruption of the Squid, for winning the Aliqas esl Phrosiac Lnu, and for owning the Belltower. She married a Kritoff policeman and had four children. Later on she was jailed for murder, though this was “really because she did not support the government”,[1] as Donelly never murdered anybody. Donelly died in the Republic of Phrox when she was thirty-four.[2]

Early life

Fairy was born to Alsia Belle Donelly one year after she had built the Belltower and married Tomas Donelly.[2] However, Tomas died a year after her birth, and she was raised in a house near the Belltower, instead of the Tower itself.[3] Alsia was said to have only spoken to her daughter ten times in her life.[4] Fairy was mostly raised by Apricia Luda, a Carafilieri/Phrox woman who was Tomas’s sister.[2] When Fairy was 9, Apricia died, and she went to live in the Belltower, being raised by several Phrox friends of her mother.[5]

Teen years

When Fairy was eleven, her mother died. The Belltower was left to Donelly, but Alsia wrote in her will:

My dear daughter Fairy Donelly shall inherit the Belltower until she is at the age of twenty; at which the order of succession shall be thus: 1) Fairy’s husband, 2) The one in line to be the next Duke of Yance, 3) A friend chosen by Fairy. If Fairy should die, then you shall do this: Open up the Belltower to visitors, but only allow two per hour, and have them come out after the hour (if you cannot find them, leave them inside, and by the grace of God, all will be well). They shall look for a map, and the one that finds it will not only be allowed to keep what is portrayed on the map, but also the Belltower itself. If none should find the map within one year, the Belltower must be opened to all the scheming public and allowed to be run over completely.[6]– Will of Alsia Belle Donelly

Tomas Etcarin, who worked as a lawyer for Alsia and Fairy, said of this will:

Alsia’s will is indeed insane. It’s probably the weirdest will I’ve seen in a long time…but we have to follow it. So basically, the house goes to Fairy, and once she’s twenty, we’ll see whether she’s dead or alive…Something about Alsia being so careful to say what will happen if her daughter dies makes me almost suspect that she arranged something…but Alsia, though strange, was a good woman, and I doubt that she would scheme her daughter’s own death.[7]– Tomas Etcarin

Fairy inherited the house and lived there, along with Tomas, who wrote a complete description of it which was later published in his book Me, Tomas. During this time there was a great clamor to see who would marry her.[8] However, Fairy turned down all offers of marriage.[2] During this time she did a lot of work to get herself next place in line to become the next Duchess of Yance, including bribing Olas Vvedi, who was the Duke.[9] She managed to get herself in line, but did not become Duchess right away.[2]


After Fairy turned twenty, she produced papers showing herself to be the next Duchess of Yance, therefore letting her continue owning the Belltower.[2] However, when she was twenty-three, Duke of Yance Olas Vvedi brought a case against her in court. Fairy lost the case and fled to Phrox.[10] However, after arriving in Phrox, she sought help from the Kritoff government that allowed her to take possession of the Belltower again. Though she did own it, Duke Vvedi managed to get her banished from Carafilier, preventing her from actually visiting or living in her home.[2] Tomas Etcarin commented on this in his book:

Apparently the Belltower is a big prize with a big fight going on about it. Fairy is not tough enough and doesn’t have the powerful political backing that [Olas] does. She’s going to lose, so she had better come to grips with that.[7]– Tomas Etcarin

During this time in Phrox, Fairy did a lot of campaigning for freedom for the Phrox people and the Muhiis. Her activities regarding the Phrox probably led to her jail sentence later on.[11] However, her support for the Muhiis led to widespread news coverage of the issue, which was part of the reason that Muhiiwuh became an independent country later on.[12] Fairy married a Kritoff policeman and had three children, one of which was Jeremiah Smith, a notorious hacker.[13] However, she began to have some mental issues, and after one incident she was arrested by Kritoff police and put in jail. She stayed there for several years until her son Jeremiah freed her. Donelly fled to Carafilier and claimed her position as Duchess of Yance, as Duke Vvedi had died. The Carafilieri government agreed to let her stay in their country, and she remained there until her death.[2] Fairy died at the age of thirty-four in a terrorist attack on the Capitol Building in Carafilier City.[14]

Aspelle Feni-Locia

I randomly have an article about Amisos’s tutor. He was a pretty interesting guy, though.

Aspelle Feni-Locia

Aspelle Feni-Locia was a tutor for King Amisos and his brother Minser Aliat[1]. He was born to a Feni-Locia mother and a Feni father during the reign of King Ebert. Aspelle was known as a great scholar and tutor, and Pyniiron once described him as “one of the smartest people in Sengoria”[2].

Personal life

Early life

Aspelle was born during the reign of King Ebert in a Feni town near the Avilak Mountains.[3] He was raised there until he was five years old, when his father died and his mother migrated to Oriansia. Aspelle came with her[4] and attended school for a while, but when he was twelve he ran away to his uncle, who lived in the Avilak Mountains.[5] After five years of living with his uncle, he moved to Feply, which was rapidly growing around the New Palace.


Vaswe Ararook noticed the talent and intelligence of young Aspelle, and so gave him money to go to the local university.[6] There Aspelle studied art, math, literature, war, history, and several other languages. He also met his wife, Nona Feni, a promising young Feni woman who was one of the first to study at a university. Aspelle and Nona were married a year after he left university.[7]

Involvement with the war

Aspelle aided Pyniiron when he overthrew King Ebert to set King Rebert on the throne. Pyniiron gave him a place in court as Minister of Educationn, but later dismissed him when he discovered that Vaswe had funded his education.[8] When King Rebert dismissed Pyniiron from his place as advisor and put Vaswe in his position, Aspelle continued to accept Vaswe’s help and ignored Pyniiron’s offer of friendship. When Pyniiron attempted to overthrow Rebert and needed to flee to Gourisson, Aspelle helped him by sending some of his favorite books after him. Pyniiron later mentioned that he was “impressed and shaken” by this offer of frienship.[2]

A year after Pyniiron fled, Vaswe and Aspelle had a disagreement and parted ways.[6] Aspelle traveled to Oriansia after Vaswe attempted to assassinate him, and studied at the university there. King Sijilak of Oriansia noticed his talent and offered him a place as vice president of theUniversity of Oriansia. Aspelle accepted and until Amisos took the throne, he remained in Oriansia working at the university.[9]

Reign of Amisos

When Amisos took over the throne, Aspelle traveled back to Sengoria and petitioned Pyniiron to let him stay. Pyniiron allowed Aspelle to stay, as long as he “served Amisos faithfully”.[2] Aspelle became a tutor for Minser Aliat when he was two, and later on he tutored Amisos himself.[1]


Aspelle wrote a book called Ancient History and Modern War, but its manuscript has been lost.[10] There is also a record of him being Education Minister during Amisos’s reign, but this had not been verified.[11] Kaeta also wrote in her journal that she “painted a picture of Minser Aliat’s tutor”,[12] but the picture has never been found.

Amisos Ilami

Amisos is the most famous king of Sengoria, and in my opinion, the best. He had a rather exciting life (e.g. fleeing for his life at three) and a rather exciting father (Pyniiron overthrew five kings but never once was able to put himself on the throne).

Amisos Ilami Locia Syhengohria le Inamne Taramor le Corsia, commonly called Amisos or King Amisos, was a Sengorian king who ruled for 70 years. He is generally considered the wisest and best Sengorian king.[1] Because of his classic book, The Life of Amisos, he has become famous in modern Sengorian culture. The period of time in which he reigned, commonly called the Age of Amisos, was a fruitful and peaceful time in Sengoria’s history, and many people consider it Sengoria’s Golden Age.[1]

Amisos is a member of the official Locia family tree, and his descendants are as well.[2]

Early life

Amisos was born during the reign of King Rebert. His mother was Ilifir Inamne Locia, a princess, and his father was an unimportant courtier, though who he exactly was is unknown.[3] His mother died soon after the birth, and his father carried him to Taramor lands, a common practice for royalty.[3][4] There he was raised by Cunylle Inamne, a Taramor widow. He also met his future wife, Reberta Inamne.[5]

When he was two years old, Pyniiron Ilami, an important advisor to King Rebert, adopted him, though he was not married.[3] He was raised and trained by Pyniiron during this time. Pyniiron had worked as a tutor and trainer of young royalty for a long while, which contributed to the fact that he taught Amisos “exceedingly well”.[3]

Escape to Gourisson

When Amisos was three, Pyniiron attempted to overthrow Rebert and failed. He fled to Gourisson in the middle of the night with the help of his merchant friend Eften Corsia. There he stayed at the house of the Corsia family with Amisos for a while.[3] Pyniiron became involved in the local politics, and started to aid the rebels who were attempting to overthrow the Gourish king. They were successful, but the Egeldish army marched in and took over Gourisson. Pyniiron, Amisos, and the rest of the Corsia family fled to the Corsia summer house in the mountains. Unfortunately, Pyniiron was captured by the Egeldish, and was held prisoner for several months.[3]

During this time Amisos turned four and adopted a seakitty kitten named Sheery.[3] He also became friends with Gundy Corsia, who was his same age.[3][6] Then the Egeldish army stopped on the other side of the nearby lake while passing through, and Pyniiron swam all the way across the lake to the Corsia house.[7] Then the Corsias fled to the Gourish meadows.[3]

Pyniiron, Amisos, and the Corsias lived in the meadows for four years.[3] During this time Pyniiron thoroughly trained both Gundy and Amisos, and they became good friends. In their third year, Pyniiron married Sagiti Corsia, the oldest Corsia girl. She became pregnant soon after their marriage with twins.[8]

Ascension to the throne

When Amisos was eight, the group in the meadows received a message that the Egeldish had been driven out of Gourisson.[3] Some historians believe that they also received notice that Rebert was having trouble with his reign, but this is disputed.[9] The group then decided to travel back to Sengoria, as their way of passage was now safe.[3]

However, Amisos and Pyniiron were lost (separately) from the main group in a surprise attack by the Egeldish. Pyniiron rejoined the Corsias, but Amisos stayed in the Eastern Gourish Mountains. He stayed there with a group of Gourish rebels for a several months, until Pyniiron came by and managed to find him.[3] Then they traveled to the Gourish coast and stole an Egeldish ship, setting sail for Suclapo.[10]

After arriving in Suclapo, Pyniiron again got mixed up in the local politics. Amisos ended up needing to ride a long ways to warn a village of a coming Egeldish attack.[3] At one point he was captured by the Egeldish army and brought to another side of Suclapo. However, he managed to escape with the help of Pyniiron and his friend Gundy.[6] After this they built a boat from driftwood and began to sail to Sengoria. They did run into the Egeldish and the Katon Ko Vaolki navy, but this was not a major problem.[11]

When the group arrived in Sengoria, Sagiti was nearly to the end of her pregnancy and Gundy was sick with a fever.[6] Pyniiron and Amisos discovered that King Rebert was traveling in a caravan through the hills, an easy target for an ambush. They started out in a small Feni trading town on the coast, where they gathered a large amount of supplies and troops.[3] While traveling through the countryside, they gathered even more troops, and finally arrived where Rebert was. There they captured Rebert and Amisos was declared king by the people.[3] When Pyniiron, Amisos, and their troops arrived at the Lhepynna (Rebert’s palace) Sagiti had given birth to her twins: Kaeta and Minser Aliat.[12]


Amisos was eight was he began his reign.[3] According to many historians, he was an “excellent”[13], “intelligent”[14], “clever”[15], and “caring”[16] ruler with a “healthy dose of causality”.[17] Pyniiron acted as his advisor until he died, but Amisos mostly ruled by himself.[18] He encouraged trade, education, and open-mindedness, often giving out money grants to promising merchants, tutors, and scientists. He is particularly known for welcoming Ghana Tovici, an alchemist and early scientist.[19] Amisos also became known as a peacemaker, as he tied up relationships with nearby countries that had been ruined by King Rebert.[20]

Right after Amisos came to the throne, King Sneppe of Oriansia seized the Nora Mountains and the Great Glacier. Amisos did not notice, as he was having trouble getting himself in place.[3] When Sneppe attempted to also take the Avilak Mountains, Amisos swiftly defeated him thanks to his army of Gourish rebels. Sneppe then declared a heavy fine on any merchants who did trade with Sengoria. Thanks to this Sengoria’s economy began to rapidly go down, so Amisos allowed Sneppe to take back the mountains. He later said, “I was terribly embarrassed that we relied on Oriansia so much…It drove me to try to improve Sengoria’s trade.”[3]

When Amisos was sixteen, Pyniiron died by falling off a cliff.[21] Amisos then married Reberta Inamne, to whom he had been betrothed, and putAmeratsu Qua-Feni in the position of Chief Advisor.[22] Amisos had no trouble continuing on with his reign, and indeed many people believed that he did better after Pyniiron’s death than before it.[3]

King Sneppe of Oriansia died when Amisos was thirty-four. Knowing that the heir to the throne, Prince Thuron, was weak and unpredictable, Amisos quietly took back the Avilak Mountains.[3] These have stayed in Sengoria’s possession to the present day. However, Amisos did not realize that Sneppe had also previously captured the Nora Mountains and the Great Glacier, so he did not attempt to get these.[23]


When Amisos was seventy-two, a Jacian king invaded Sengoria and managed to seize the throne. Amisos fled to Taramor lands with his sons, where his late wife Reberta came from. He lived there for the rest of his life until he died at ninety by falling off a cliff.[24]



Amisos’s mother was Ilifir Inamne Locia, a Taramor princess. Her mother was Istaan Inamne, who had Ilifir with her Taramor husband before he died. Istaan then married King Rebert as part of a treaty. Therefore Ilifir became a princess.[25] However, Amisos’s father is unknown, as all the pages in Ilifir’s diary that mention him were torn out and destroyed.[26] In one part that has survived she refers to him as a “courtier”, but does not mention his name or any other information.[27]

Amisos was raised until he was two by Cunylle Inamne, a wealthy Taramor widow. Cunylle is described in The Life of Amisos as a “fierce”, “tough”, “noble”, and “wonderfully caring” woman.[3] She was previously married to a man from the Ararook family, which were outlaws in northern lands. Later on Amisos lived with her during a rebellion.

Pyniiron adopted Amisos when he was two, despite the fact that he was not married.[3] He trained him “exceedingly well”[3], even though Amisos was only two or three. Also, Pyniiron shared a lot of his plans with the baby Amisos, which Amisos later said that it “helped [me] a lot”.[3] Amisos first met Sagiti when he was four.[3] Sagiti cared for him “like a mother” and “provided the affection I was missing with Pyniiron”.[3] When Pyniiron married Sagiti, Amisos said that he was “overjoyed”. Sagiti continued to be a comforting and caring parent for the rest of his life.[28]


Amisos had no known natural siblings, but the twins Minser Aliat and Kaeta were born to Sagiti a couple years after her marriage to Pyniiron. While Amisos confesses that they were “terrible bothers”[3] while children, later on they became “good friends and companions”.[3] Kaeta was known to often paint Amisos,[29] and Minser Aliat enjoyed hunting and racing with him.[30] Sagiti had no more children due to a problem during the birth of the twins.[31]


Amisos married Reberta Inamne when he was sixteen and Reberta was seventeen.[3] They had four children, in order of age: Princess Amicors,Prince Shalinis, Prince Elestur, and Princess Pania. Reberta almost died while giving birth to Pania, and was in a coma for several days. However, she recovered completely, albeit without the ability to have any more children.[3] Amisos had a good relationship with all of his children, the exception being Pania, who he was angry at for a while when she married King Rebert.[32]


Amisos made friends with Gundy Corsia, who later became his uncle, while on his trip to Gourisson.[3] Gundy and Amisos continued to be friends until Gundy died in a hunting accident.[33] Gundy’s family guarded King Rebert and also raised Gourish seakitties, one of which Amisos adopted when he was four.[3] Amisos later said of his relationship with Gundy, “With Pyniiron I had to be perfect. With Sagiti I was loved. With Minser Aliat and Kaeta I was a plaything. With Gundy I could talk and play just like I wanted.”[3]

Amisos also had many other friends throughout his reign, including Ameratsu Qua-Feni. He was known for befriending adults even when he was still a boy or a young man.[34] However, he trusted very few people, especially after his supposed friend Askurak Monsili rebelled against him and tried to take the throne.[1]

Tutors and advisors

Amisos’s favorite tutor was Aspelle Feni-Locia, a talented tutor who taught him a large amount about mathematics and history.[3] Pyniiron also advised him a large amount and probably impacted him the most.[1] He also had good friendships with many of his advisors, including Ameratsu Feni-Locia, and his ministers.[3] Amisos was said to “know everybody but trust nobody”.[1]


Amisos’ main enemy was Rebert Yabar, formerly a king. His daughter Pania married him when Rebert was forty and Pania was twenty-one. This angered Amisos, but he forgave her and did not break up the marriage.[3] Throughout his life he also made enemies of many other people, including the former Education Minister Darvy Monsili, whom he described in The Life of Amisos as a “perfect specimen of a stuck-up Monsili lord”. Darvy aided Askurak Monsili in his rebellion against Amisos, but was killed in the fray.[3]

King Sneppe of Oriansia was a main foreign enemy. Sneppe and Amisos never had outright war, despite several skirmishes in the Avilak Mountains, but they had a very tense relationship throughout their reigns.[1] Amisos once described Sneppe as a “horribly clever snake that wants everything for himself”.[3] His sister Kaeta also drew a multitude of insulting pictures of him.[35]


Amisos is known particularly for his classic book The Life of Amisos, which was illustrated by his sister Kaeta and twenty other artists. This book has become a famous classic, and today is read all over the world. He started writing it when he was ten, and finished when he was forty.[3]


Sengoria had not done much trade before Amisos’s time,[36] but when he became king, he began to encourage trade with other countries. He especially wanted many items to be imported from Gourisson, as he enjoyed Gourish products.[3] Amisos also occasionally gave money grants to aspiring merchants, especially those who wanted to do new and exciting things.[1]


Amisos started a program later called the Amisos Feni Education Program, or AFEP, which helped Feni servants to get access to books and other learning materials. He also hired top reading teachers to tutor Fenis in how to read, which led to a huge amount of new books being written and published.[3] Besides this program, he built schools all over Sengoria, trained teachers, and encouraged new books to be written. He himself wrote a history of Sengoria entitled “The Real Story of Calume”.[3]


Amisos encouraged art and hired many painters to work at his court. One of the most famous was Feyran Feni, who worked as a tutor for his sister Kaeta for a little while.[3] Besides painting, Amisos helped some aspiring charcoal artists, as working with charcoal was still considered somewhat strange, and Amisos wanted to dispel this belief.[37] Sculpting also became popular at this time, and Amisos hired several sculptors to decorate the Atisos Amisos Fret, a fretoriod reserve.[3]


Sengoria’s government had been very disorganized during Rebert’s reign, and Amisos did a lot of work in organizing it again. He removed many positions that were no longer needed, such as the position for Minister of Clothes Design, and added ones that were needed, such as the Minister of Seakitties. Besides this, he encouraged relations with other countries, and as he wrote in his book, “endured the finicky, bothersome, and nagging ambassadors”.[3] He also lent Gourisson large amounts of soldiers and money, most of which was not paid back.[38]

Amisos in popular culture

Today Amisos is considered the best king of Sengoria by many.[1] He also appears in many casten shows, games, books, and websites, often just as a good, wise, and firm king.[39] Some of the references today are listed below.

  • Some people swear by Amisos, particularly in movies. In the Sengorian action adventure movie Perilous, the protagonist exclaims, “By Amisos, that is funny!”, “I’ll do it, by Amisos!”, and “By Amisos, he should!”
  • In the book The Corruption of the Squid, Louise comments, “He’s as honest and good as Amisos himself, but just as sneaky and clever as Pyniiron.”
  • In one episode of the casten show “DaDaDaDa Returns”, a smart three-year-old named Amisos helps DaDaDaDa.
  • The pet seakitty of the Sengorian singer Myena Qua-Feni is named Amisos.
