In the aftermath of Kisada I‘s coronation the Emerald Throne was taken from the Palace under the Emperor’s orders. Kisada Yakamo ordered the Throne be broken up and scattered in Earthquake Fish Bay. Emerald Champion Kakita Toshimoko carried out this order, smashing the Throne. He didn’t, however, cast it into the Bay. Instead, he entrusted parts of the Throne to various Emerald Magistrates. Kisada I ordered a new Throne be crafted, one made of obsidian. This corrupted element is a focus for Taint and greatly enhances Kisada’s power within the Imperial City. The Throne has become a symbol of the fear and despair of the people.
