Hall of the Khan
Hall of the Khan.
This Hall lead's to the seat of Government of Kasra.
Kasra's most recent Governmental History is herein detailed.
Kasra's former Khan, Khan Ghassan Fakhir Asad, childless upon his death, named his nephew, Kane Damar Grimblade, his Heir.
Upon his death, his title was passed on to his Heir.
Kasra's new Khan is Khan Kane Damar Grimblade.
The High Council of Kasra: The High Council is now composed of Gorean's appointed by the Khan as his advisors, who serve in that capacity at his whim. Though he allows, for now, one seat of his High Council to be filled by someone elected by the Citizenry of Kasra, a FW can be so elected. This person serves in his / her position on the High Council at the whim of the Khan or until a one year term has expired, upon which date, that person is either elected for another term or someone else is elected to replace them. Should the individual occupying that seat on the High Council be dismissed by the Khan, and remains living afterwards, the Citizenry cannot elect him / her to that position again.
The Flag of the Great City of Kasra: The new flag of Kasra, (the old flag having been replaced by the Khan), is Black with a yellow-orange representation of the sun at it's center over that sun is a black Herlit - it's wing's furled back, it's talon's stretched out for the kill.
Caste System: There is no Caste System in the City of Kasra. All outsiders who visit Kasra are expected to leave their Caste at the City Gate, as their Caste will be neither recognized in Kasra, nor will they receive any benefit that they might receive elsewhere from their Caste. There are only two exceptions to this rule, that of the Caste of Scribes and Initiates who are allowed to retain their Caste and will receive the respect according their Caste while within Kasra.
Note: The recognition of these two Caste's only applies to those of Kasra. Any not of Kasra of those Caste's, see line one above, sentence two.
