He assumed a rather curious expression while they spoke, but inwardly he was pleased that the radical statement he had just made, so unlike anything Zandion would ever have said in sincerity, had produced the desired results. The Mother Empress had answered his question regarding the male place in s...

Zandion listened very attentively, interested in learning about the history of the Shrailleeni, including its theological stance. While many people from Xoriet tended to be intolerant of outside religion (an ancient cultural belief), Zandion was not one of them. Inflexibility was a huge flaw in a le...

Zandion considered the idea of four languages with mild interest. Xoriet had only two native languages, and even then one was a derivative of the other, modernized for the convenience of the citizens. It was not difficult to learn one if you knew the other. But four completely separate languages? Za...

I have always wondered about how a matriarchy regards the male members of society. Some extreme cases I have heard of treat men oppressively in an aggressive manner, though by the looks of the Minister Zattem, that is not the case here. As one from a place where everything must be Equal at all time...

Zandion had to pause for a moment there and think about this answer. How best to describe it? It took a moment of consideration to decide exactly how to answer that. While he had been doing quite a bit of explaining, the Mother Empress was answering the questions he did not have to ask. He found tha...

"You could say that we have a similar system. The Triet has mostly unchallenged authority - 'Triet' is what they call the balance of Throne, Church, and Hierarchy. While generally I have the most influential role in Xoriet, if I proved to be a bad leader, the Hierarchy and the Church, the other...

"Oh, heavens no," said Zandion after another bite of salad. "The nobility doesn't even set the precedent for number of possible children. Actually, the nobility often births a lesser number of children than the average, particularly those of the Southern territories. My wife only had ...

Zandion swallowed a snicker at that last statement, holding his expression together with the utmost ease, yet the most difficult trials. Oh, yes, family was so reliable in his experience. The idea of his eleven brothers being reliable was deeply amusing to the Kath. They had spent years killing each...

Zandion took a mouthful of salad to give himself a little time to think on that question. This was bordering on dangerous territory, so he would neglect certain details. After all, there was no need to mention the number of sons and brothers lost in the succession struggles that were customary in th...

“I chose that particular term because I rather enjoy the challenge of keeping Order in Xoriet. It provides an active challenge for me, to ensure the working organization of society.

Zandion once more ran words through his mind and decided what he could say easily. He was perfectly well aware of what to say and what to gloss over in the name of simplicity. After all, it was important that the system of beliefs associated with the Doctrines was generally kept out of polite conver...

Ah, now there was a question that anyone from Xoriet could have answered by rote. “The Principles of Order and Equality come to us through Fate’s Mandate,” replied Zandion promptly. “They dictate the means by which we live. Order is the responsibility of the Throne to maintain, while Equality is the...

Zandion considered that question for a moment. There was really no easy way to describe it. He would have to speak the first thing that came to his mind to express enough of it to Chella. So he channeled his thoughts into his words, deciding what he felt most needed to be expressed. “Xoriet tends to...

“Your Highness. Queen. Regent. Queen,” said the Kath, offering a singular bow to each of those named that was slightly deeper than the one he had initially presented their Minister with. Sometimes it paid off being the head of a nation, he thought with private satisfaction. It meant that he had to m...
