--Delzhan Military Captain, Cassanova, and ambassador the court of orderly flame.
If you are afraid, don’t do it. If you do it, don’t be afraid.
--A proveb of Tamas Khan
Koshak Kahn—one of the tri’kahn’s thousand ‘nephews’--is, in fact, the second son of one of the more wealthy and important lines of Delzhan Nobles. A hot headed and hot loined youth, he made his father proud in many ways, but his indiscretions in the area of seduction quickly earned him more foes than friends.
Koshak’s father noted his son’s charm and grace too the Tri’kahn and suggested him for a position as amongst the emissaries too the Court of Orderly Flame. Taking this adventure in good graces, Koshak promised too woo fire butterflies and learn the sword under efrit blademasters and do his father honor.
A man of deeds more than words, the senior diplomats quickly realized that Koshak would not be best suited too rise to their ranks, but elementals had young among their numbers too, and men of action could connect on levels that transcended species or mortality. Within a year, Koshak’s primary duty was too represent the Delzhan among military actions against the fair folk. It was in these battles that he found tests of arms that truly pressed him to his limits and beyond, pressing him towards the point where the Unconquered Sun awaited him.
It was also amongst these expeditions that he first witnessed a trio of emerald skinned, fire haired girls dancing towards the battle on flaming footprints, and the sensual indolence of the fire butterflies was forgotten.
The fact that the three young flame ducks mocked at the mortal’s suit only drove him wilder with passion and ambition. He began regularly petitioning the efrit Lusa Seragon for initiation into the supernatural martial arts. He was, of course, politely denied each time, often with referrals too efrits and garda birds who would instruct him—which he seized—but Lusa Seragon’s instruction was for the Court of Orderly Flame alone.
In his third year honorably representing Chiaoscuro alongside the armies of the Court of Orderly Flame—a loan mortal among gods and demigods fearlessly saluting the three he loved and throwing himself into the fray with the hobgoblins—the three flame ducks learned from their kin that the mortal had denied himself the willing attentions of the fire butterflies or any other woman since the first day he’d seen them. The three did not know what to think or say, but one offered him her blessing before the next battle.
It was in that battle that the three were cut off from the rest of their army by a hobgoblins and five griffin riding cataraphoi descended upon them.
Seeing this from where he held the flanks against the hobgolins, a horrible rage rose up in Koshak. It seemed the light of the burning sun blazed out of him. His drove his golden camel through hobgoblins that suddenly quailed and quivered, and cut his way too join with the three. His iron knife and glass blade cut through sidhe plate with equal ease, and the four cut their way back too the armies together…
That night, the three girls granted Koshak his wish, their hearts, their bodies, and their love. Fort he first time in his life, he wanted more. When the young exalted petitioned Lusa Sargon to wed them, he was greeted not as a mortal, but as a God-King of Creation, an ally to be held and cherished. He was granted not only the marriage of the three, but ancient gifts of orichalcum long hidden away and title to a manse.
