SURAB IS THE BROTHER OF PANG-LIMA’S ARCH ENEMY WHO TURNED A BLIND EYE TO PANG-LIMA’S OUSTING. SURAB IS CAUGHT IN PANG-LIMA’S WEB OF REVENGE WHEN HIS BALANGAY SHIP SINKS IN A FIERCE TYPHOON CREATED BY PANG-LIMA’S MAGIC.

THIS IS HIS STORY…


Politics is not that simple. There are multiple moving parts and an effective leader must have intimate knowledge of each part and choose what he thinks is best, not just for today but into the future. Politics is all about negotiations and  compromise in hopes of the least negative impact. Then, there’s the family. It’s not like I wanted to oust Pang-lima, but his self-righteousness and his unwillingness to work on an acceptable solution pushed the decision toward exile.  If the roles were reversed Pang-lima would have ordered me to exile. He left me with no choice.

I won’t deny that my brother and Pang-lima have hated each other since Pang-lima came into power. In my heart of hearts, I only did what is best for my people. But oh! How I hate that people think I agreed to exile him only to side with my family!

I must not let these feelings detract me from the matters at hand. I  have to relax and prepare for this most important trip. I’m looking forward to  traveling with my son Kisig. I have so much to teach him. I know that on his first voyage through this important trading route, he will learn how to make the best deals with trading partners, create lasting alliances and prevent war. It will expand his perspective of the world by experiencing first-hand  what would be new cultures, tasting new cuisine, hearing new music, textile and so much more!
