Children of the Emperor
This bird is seen as a sign from Heaven that the Emperor’s reign is just and wise. It’s feathers have healing abilities and Kamahl Akar somehow used it to be immortal.
The Emperor’s houou was stolen and was somehow taken to Medinaat al-Salaam where it was kept in the Avery of the Firebird. It was found and then killed by Omarjavi during the fight with Kamahl Akar.
The Emperor is now facing opposition because of the death of the houou and if another can be found it would solidify his hold on the throne.
