“Good evening. The Duchy of Fekhoya has always prided itself on the protection and welfare of the citizens and civilians residing within the constellation. Recent news troubles us greatly, and we will do all we can to help each and every citizen and baseliner who has been affected by this unjust purge committed by Chesm Khan and the Royal Guards. Please accept my deepest sympathies, and know my heart goes out to all of you.”
She takes a breath, emotion quite clear on her features.
“As you all know, the lines of succession are not always clear. There may be some animosity toward my title and claim, but I have strived to better the lives of the people living in the constellation. We fight, daily, against the blooders, Triglavians, and other enemies infesting our home, while the nobility of Khanid Prime does very little to mitigate these attacks on the people living under the Kingdom. Many from beyond the Kingdom joined in to root out heresy, stopping the likes of Chakaid and Nauplius from further spreading their blasphemy. This can hardly be said for those residing at court.”
Her tone remaining calm, she continues.
"Now some will claim many things about me, and I, of course, expect my enemies and detractors to step up and start spewing lies, half-truths, and other things. I will say this right now. I am loyal to my Kingdom, I am loyal to my home and I always have been, from my days doing undercover work for Khanid Intelligence, to this endeavor. If there are any crimes for which I am made to answer, I will present myself, whether at the court of my King or my Empress.
Until that day comes – if that day comes – and until another takes my place as Duchess of Fekhoya, I will continue to protect and provide for my people, a faithful subject of the Amarrian Empire."
