Mint stood outside in the Main City of the Arcosian people. He had a big announcement to make to all the people of the planet. To show he was to the world. Uncloak from the shadows. He didn't wanna do but with Azoth's death he was alerted to earlier in the day he quickly scrambled what he could. With the large crowd, Mint would glance around. "You may know me as Mint. I'm a gangster. But that is not what I am fully am. I supported our great Emperor Azoth's rise to the throne. I fought at his side. I was pulled from my darkness to see the light. He made me one of his top men. I learned a lot from him. He was a young man with a lot of ambition. He promoted peace and wanted to end wars across the cosmos." Mint paused to let the crowd sink into this feeling.
"I have just been told Emperor Azoth was slain on Plant. I don't know it is true or not. But regardless of the case, we are without leadership for now. No one shall take the status of Emperor for some time. It is not that time yet. It is foolish to do such a thing at the current time. But we do need a plan. My proposal is to see the best Arcose has to offer. We shall allow a new leader to rise up. And if Emperor Azoth returns alive and with us once more? We shall welcome him with open arms." Mint crossed his fingers behind his back so no one could see him hoping he'd not return. Mint wanted that throne now. His main reason for not taking it was gone or dead? He might as well plant the seeds for himself to lead.
