The Streik Empire
Before the Empire, Streik was part of Corrias, and the entire country was ruled by a human king, counselled by a democratically voted representative from each other race in Corrias. A young and ambitious noble, Lawrence Streiklund I saved King Rothan from an assassination plot devised by one of the royal Councillors. In gratitude, Rothan granted the lands in the east river delta to Streiklund and his family. Many years later, a mysterious illness swept Corrias, leaving thousands dead including the King. Streiklund II siezed the opportunity to declare Streik a separate entity from Corrias. In the following months, Corrias too weak to defend itself, newly self-appointed Emperor Streiklund put his son Prince Dominik on Corrias’ throne.
