Dunkle Rastaria IX
Dunkle Rastaria IX was the last ruler of the Rastarian Empire. The final product of a long line of incestuous intermarriages, Dunkle was a singular combination of immaturity, ignorance, low intelligence and cruelty.
While it was true that the empire was in dire straits when he took over as ruler, he did much to hasten it’s demise. His final act of appointing a crow as minister of agriculture, a decision made worse by the combination of the importance of the office along with the public’s overall fear of crows, was what finally convinced his security minister to abruptly decapitate the king in full view of the court. With no clear successor, civil war soon broke out and the empire collpased into anarchy within a year.
