Far and Away
When her elder brother Harrick was gravely wounded, King
Oleb realised that his daughter was likely to inherit the throne.
Previously, Rao was most ignored by Oleb, who entrusted her
upbringing to his courtiers and attendants. She became the
king’s foremost counsellor and diplomat, and is highly infl uential
at court. She dreams of a grand alliance of worlds – either the
Kingdom of Drinax reborn, or a more equal and progressive
league to provide a bulwark against the great imperial powers.
Bringing the advanced technology of Drinax back to her former
subjects could bring about a golden age.
Her detractors claim that the princess is overambitious and
blind to the perilous circumstances of Drinax, and that any such
grand alliance would only serve to anger the Aslan.
