War is a disease and I am the cure.
was the key sentence in a speech giving by Queen Justine at her coronation. It symbolized the dismantling of her father's famed heavy cavalry. As Queen she promised that no more young men would bleed to death in the fields and no more villages would be burned. That this was a time of enlightenment and prosperity as opposed to one of villainy and tragedy. That her diplomacy had brought peace to a region stricken by war for centuries. To prove that she was dedicated to this cause , she locked Jean-Luc Moreau in a dungeon and publicly belittled and chastised his supporters . Painted him as a wretched men who forced himself upon the young maidens of the region. But now she finds herself in great peril. When the crops of the other kingdoms went barren , they began to raid the kingdom's settlement which lead to discontent in the commoners and nobles of the region.
Even worse then that without the threat of Moreau's famed Calvary charges coming up their head the openly mock and belittle the monarchy with at best minor reluctance.
The sad truth of the situation is that while Moreau be a vile cruel man , the people need the threat of the mace to keep them in the line. Without order , there is only chaos. Of course this creates quite the corundum , doesn't it? Why should Moreau help her? She mocked him in public and there's no guarantee she just won't lock him away again once he gets her followers back in the line. Though there must be some sort of agreement they can come to for the sake of kingdom? Something she has that may be of some value to man like Moreau.
Details may be discussed.
