    Finding a Candidate

    After Defy's death many more citizens rejected the King as their leader as the King continued to use the country's money for selfish needs, and pass ridiculous laws against the people. One being that they cannot say Defy's name.

    Slowly Doing Better

    A few months into the trial and Linq was already showing how good of a leader he can be. Using his skills as a mathematician he was slowly getting the country out of debt by making rational changes to the budget. Many families were getting their jobs back and putting their life back to the way it was. With changes like these, even the Kings closest friends were leaning towards Linq being a leader.
