Brendol Hux is a warmonger, self made Emperor and ruler of all civilized lands- betrayer of Vader and Snoke. A Triumvirate broken. Left unchecked, his ambition and violence spread. Conquered kings and queens lay at his feet. Soon, none shall oppose him. Not the petty mobs of angry citizens and certainly not Queen Organa!
"Watch carefully this time." He gruffly demands.
Armitage doesn't want to listen, his eyes still not meeting his father's.
"Understand?" Brendol asks more sharply, his fingers catch on his son's chin, forcing him to lift his face and finally meet his stormy eyes. "I want you to watch and listen."
His father draws away. Armitage hugs his own arms, as if it will offer warmth. He slowly follows him through the rooms, the soldiers parting for them. They come to a larger hall...
At first Armitage thinks that it is a mistake. He thought they had come to another royal family but they don't look royal. They look ragged and filthy!
The man is scowling at Armitage's father. Armitage looks to the woman and then, underneath her hands. There's a boy. Armitage thinks he looks a little like the ravens that sometimes circle the palace grounds.
