The King is shown to be a very kind man of whom without outright admitting his involvement admits to supporting the rebels but will stop if Scotty will promise that the food rationing put in place by his father will be stopped.

During this meeting they are also introduced to Larenic Ornris of whom is the Numenorian Chancellor of the Kingdom of Trasnet and is shown to be just as kind a man as the King but also speaks more harshly of the situation then the king also bringing up the plight of the Atlantians in the Kingdom of Valeria to the north.

Death of the Emperor
In the days leading up to the murder of the Emperor, and his wife the Empire of Valeria underwent serious riots due to the fact that the emperor was withholding large amount of food, and charging more and more taxes to pay for his expensive hobbies. This was quickly devolving into street warfare which Scotty was placed in charge of putting down due to his father's love for him. Scotty dealt with the rioters brutally in that he basically instigated a curfew which if broke you were deemed to be a traitor to the Kingdom. When this heavy hand didn't stop the day time riots he brought the elite palace gaurd of Munchen to the fray and massacred a crowd of two hundred people rioting at the local market. This massacre was the last straw and the rioters launched themselves into a frenzy in which brought them to the steps of the palace. There were so many rioters that the forces under Scotty's command were not enough to hold them back so they begin breaking inside the palace itself. During this chaotic time the rioters managed to get inside the throne room of Trance Zegers and proceeded to cut his head off and carry his lifeless body through the streets.
