Cloak and Dagger
The Circan Empire
The Circan Empire looms large over all the nations of Leped. The empire itself is over 1000 years old, and has nearly doubled in size over the last hundred. Ever warlike, Circa is always trying to conquer at least one nation. Currently, that poor nation is Hansa. Circa proper is a city of grandness, everything is massive, elegant and elaborate. Clerics of St. Secula say that this was chosen as the sight for the first settlement in the world, that said, Circa is easily the oldest city in the World. The largest palace in Leped sits in the city center, where within, Empress Clara XVI, having just stolen the throne from her brother, broods and schemes. All Circans are trained in battle from the age of 5, and firstborn men are required to join the military, though most all men do anyway. The Circan legions are indeed awe inspiring. They contain the legendary Circan Dragoons, a cavalry who’s name is equated with death far and wide. Any Dragoon is immediately afforded the same rank and title as a nobleman.
