He was unhappy because he didn't know Pleasure and Love well. But he was accustomed to Shortage and Hardworking. Memory of Past Glory urged him ceaselessly. Though he made his subjects work hard, any of them could not blame him for laziness and trace escalate of his working. He extended Julang Hombomdol's Network of Canals, Irrigation and Embarkment. Great Wall of Shah Yar Valley was builded where No Shield of HeenMaroun and Thrunhin Dah barriered against AntiDragons. (In that Age, Iron Forts were not builded.) He also made Great Garden which his subjects could use for Gathering and Enjoying Festivals. But Thalurzni didn't have enough time to enjoy together with his Subjects.
He always went around his Domain with Many Demigod Engineers and Artists. They followed him with Reverence and Awe rather than Love and Trust. But anyway they could not oppose his Order and always required his help because he controlled Four Elements, he used Many Bones of Giants as his Useful Resources and Many Admirable Treasures in Age of Light Houses.
One day, he noticed he didn't have enough time to work and finish, because he have too many mundane work which anyone could do, but his ministers were already overworking. So he made some of his Copy Proxy Regents from his Furnace, he let them act as his substitutes in Ordinary Formalities. They followed same manner of their Original and demanded same respect from Officials. People soon began to express displeasement to his treatment.
Han Majang was still Young Noble in that Age, and didn't have any Influence overCourt later he got. (he served Three Emperors: Thalurzni, Mikaday and Vayobi.) but he felt uneasy about current behavior of his Emperor and went to Lair of Great Sage Augustus for consulting.
Who is Augustus? None of us cannot tell it with Conviction, He always lives in Kralorela from Unknown Age before No Recorded. Some of Kralorelans said he is Son of First Great Giant but he betrayed his Evil Cousins and became First Disciple of Daruda, as Thalurzni was Last Disciple of him. But he requires Perpetual Corridor of Time to burn All of his Essense of Giant to End of World returning to Cosmic Egg. Others believed he is Incarnate of Great Vithelan Mystic Larn Hasamadour and he collects All of Mystery of World with Meditation among the Root of Yothbedta before his Ascension.
When he counselled Han Majang, he was in Very Active Mood of Early Cycle of World. He demanded short time for deliberation, and said.
Augustus: "Thalurzni is very capable, brilliant Intelletual, but regrettably is not enough wise to attain True Great Dragon Status. He may fall to Same Error as Many False Dragons lest we now help him. Proxies are Ill Omen. Because he proves he is still Changeable Status to Bad and Darkside. He starts to lose his inner Draconic Instinct. He can become very Bad Tyrant because he knew only Duty but still didn't know Mercy. He cannot return back Golden Age until Cycle will finish itself though he can make Many Substitute Trees of Maluraya and Moon." (Plutarch: What is Moon? We have again and again found the Same Term in Ancient Eastern Texts, but only we can find that Moon is Title of Some Series of Planets which have some Specialized Peasonality....such as Blue Streak.)
Majang: "Intelligence beyond Power always makes human unhappy. But what can we do? His intelligence and Imagination themselves barriered him from resting and accepting Originality of World."
Augustus whispered in Meditation Form: "We can teach him Beauty of Garden of Temptation what Dragons made with their Utuma. We can present him a Beautiful Woman within Metsylan Tradition and make her his Wife."
Majang: "But Daruda didn't have any Woman..."
Augustus: "But his Ancestor Metsyla had many Wives and Concubines. Maybe he will think he should accept if we present only One Woman and we can fix him to Perfect Ring of Ouroboros."
So they sought appropriate Woman for Thalurzni.
Halisayan and her Elder Sister Bodkartu was born in City Hsian Wan. Her poor
Mother was verginally impregnated for bathing in the Lake of Nephilim, which
had Legend Riversource of Blood River flown from Vein of Celestial Giant.
(Plutarch: We have identified this Twins Halisayan and Bodkartu with
Pelorian Goddess Dendara & Gorgorma, I have seen they are fundamentally Great Theistic Daemon of Theistic Circumstance before Mysticism of Vithela was imported to this Genertela Area.) She and her sister were different from each other as Light and Shadow, but they are very close not only for Blood but Power Affinity. Halisayan became Very Beautiful and Wise Woman in Kralorela, and was nominated to Sibilline Priestess of Land and Sky Connection who controlled Sky Planets and Roof. She has already got Great Love and Reverence from Kralorelan Commoners for her Great Power of Prophesy and Healing when Augustus met her.
But Halisayan didn't need to marry Any Men as Thalurzni didn't. She believed One was Enough, Two was Surplus. She didn't want to be the One for Only One but Only One for Everybody. But Augustus and Han Majang knew what was Best. And the Two gave an account of Futuristic Risk which he conceived in heart, but she denied the Woman who they seek was not she, but the two was most patient and magnanimous of Empire, so she told them she would accept their request if they could resolve her difficult Three Problems, she thought them impossible to settle.
(Other Two Missions, the Two easily succeeded.)
Halisayan finally and desperately asked, "I cannot get married to any men until my elder sister Bodkartu marrying with before me." So Augustus and Han Majang tried to seek Husband for Most Horrible Woman, so they went to Underworld and ask to Udam Bagur (Plutarch: We don't know who was so called in Reign of Thalurzni is same identity to who is called with same Title, but he is Exarch of Hell who has administered Sinful Souls during Cycle of Reincanation and purify their Sin under Order of Dragon Emperor. Because Kralorelans don't admit authority of heaven not connected to their World Center, Dragon Emperors. Even Most Hierarchical People Dara Happans didn't add such authority to their Autocrat, they separated Murharzarm from Yelm!) for collecting of Bill of Gambling, so he could not decline their ask to wedding to Most Ugly Goddess.
So finally Halisayan could not deny their Request, hence they three went to Court, and the Two combined tightly with their Hatred to each other and similar personality. Because both of Two knew they would lose something. But people rejoiced their sacrifice for Stability and Inner Peace. So that pair gradually became Good Married Couple. Thalurzni sensed the Intervention of Trick which the Two conspired. But he could not make sure what they wanted. So he ordered Augustus Seclusion as Punishment, Two Times of Mass Work to add work of Han Majang. They graciously accepted these punishments what they want, and departed.
Dragon speaks about Change of World
The Furnace of Thalurzni modelled to both World Dragon and Human Body, Philosophy and Material and controlled Four Logic in Center of the World. His Power was generally coming from it and he made Many Wonders without Dirty Works as he did in Youth.
When he summoned Four Dragons from Draconic Realm, they are representatives of his inner Contradicted Desires. First was "Dragon of Meditation" from North (We understood him as August Dragon, Imin Lung), Second was "Dragon who knows Nature" (His Predecessor, Daruda), Third was "Dragon Eats Humans" his Doubt, Sorrow and Illusion (Metsyla and Shavaya), Fourth was most reverend but unknowable "Dragon who Swallows his Own Tail" from West(Heenmaroun) who guarded Land of Splendour from Anti Dragons.
Fight against Four Gangs
When HeenMaroun reigned Kerendaruth, he created Four Virtues attributed Four Directions, North was Innocence, West was Intelligence, East was Wonder, South was Pleasure. All were needs for Limited Humans which still have no Access to Draconic Secret, But as Time passed, All Four deprave from End and Edge. So Ignorance coming from Innocence, Materialism coming from Intelligence, Illusion coming from Wonder, Indolence coming from Pleasure. So Daruda changed his World and handed his Mundane Power to Thalurzuni.
But Four Gangs was not Dead even after their Horrible Transformation in Utuma. These Warped Entities slowly returned from Ends of World and Anti Dragons incited them to attack Thalurzuni at the same time.
In Far Northeast, Abandoned Place after Reign of Metsyla (Plutarch: That place is now called Koromandol.) Shadow Cancer appeared as Horrible Power of Darkness which eating Almost All of Creation and Light for her Appetite and Hatred. As same as that Place, in Chern Durel and Jankley Bore, Earth Eater coming from Great Shrine Root of Zeral Fen. It started going forth to Southward More Nourishment of Land Splendour. Secret Water Rising from Deep Hidden Water under Earth Solid Rock from Southeast of Kralorela and secretly plotted to Broke Down Surface to Depth of Water. Finally in Upper Sky of South Western Dome of Heaven and Verenela, Star Permutator selfishly changes the Star Orders and Constallations during Vacant Place of Maluraya, Viceroy of the Noon.(Plutarch: We think Star Permutator is the Planet called Shargash in Dara Happa.) Each Four stepped forward to Kralorela to Destroying Court of Thalurzni.
While in the Center, Thalurzni put his Sword of Air into his Furnace. It worked and released Great Energy of Giant Eye of Storm. Which broke out Great Power to Four Direction. That Power is Imbalance in Some Area of Kralorela, because his Power perfectly defeated Secret Water and it swallowed Waters from Suam Chow, so Thrunhin Dah grasped tightly Root of Water Source from it swallow wholeland of Daruda. And as in his Plan of Defeatig Foreign these Elements, they escaped his Power of Most Weaken, because it was Power of Corrupt Earth and sheltered many Outlaw Spirits and Saints from combining to Power of Middle World. It was also Thalazni planned because he knew Full Power inevitably weakened.
After that War ended, Great AntiGods at last understood Greatness of Thalurzni as Daruda, they conspired deceiving him and plotted to let his Power Outside until his Power Thinned and Weakened. So they disguised Sincere Ambassadors of Outside Kingdoms and ask his Help to fight against Demons. And at that Time, Halisayan heard Prophecy the One of them was the True Supporter of TarnGatHa, so their court should have distinguish one of these Foreigners from these AntiDragons.
First was from Land of Ignorance, Black Faced Dozaki Slave Masters coming to Court of Thalurzni and Halisayan, they needed to help their War against Army of Head Demon Atyar. They offered Tribute of Zeral Fen Slaves and Bloody Maize.
Second was coming from Great Wall of Shah Yar Pass Valley between Hachuan Shan & Great Shan Shan. Bull Headed Giants coming with Foreign brutal Behavior and Demanded his assistance derived from their Lineage to Halisayan and Bodkartu. They also fought against Demon Minions of Goat Headed and would accept any Help.
Third was Vormaino coming from Eastern Sea with Some Fleet of Silver Barge, Old Ancient Blood Relative of Eastern Sea. they survived Many AntiDragon Wars without Help of Any Dragons after Glorious Day of Metsyla, they became very distrustful and secretive for many Tricks of AntiDragons, but they also heard about Strong Recovery of Metsylan Tradition, so they needed Support against Foreign Enemies and Trade of Knowledge and Materials which lost in AntiDragon War. (Moreover, they found the Location of Sekever. But they couldn't do anything to the Great Anti Tali for Fear. They blamed Kralorelans in Reign of Vayobi after that Event for Kralorelans sent off their AntiGod for Malice to Vormain.)
Fourth was coming with Most Horrible Appearance, Seafaring Folk Waertagi. They made their Great Fleets skinned Great Dragon's Corpse bound with their Soulcorrupting Sorcery, showed their Ignorance and Disgrace. But Thalurzni permitted them calling at a Port. And waiting.
Fifth was coming from Western South, Land of Elephants. There of that Age
Many Fire Worshippers of Chalite costed worst Damage in the AntiDragon War.
(Plutarch: We cannot investigate which stage the Chulanpur City fell from
Sky World, and Karkal and Herespur fought against each other in the Chamber of Vith, TarnGatHa, but that was a Another Story.) Many Chalites required Help after Devastation of Star Permutator and Sekever, because that land was more rich than other Countries of Heros to Gods. Aldryami also were coming with them, trying to corrupt Kralorelan Civilzation into their favorite Jungle.
Sixth was Hsunchens who lived within Backspine Hide Pillars of HeenMaroun, ShanShan. They also scrambled for Scanty Remnants of Stock Magic and Food with Babadi of Diamond Mountains and Nichung of Giant Garden. So they and their Leader Horned Daemons needed help of Kralorela. (Babadi has blamed Thalurzni Alchemy School from that Age because they believed Thalurzni stole their Most great secret for Making Precious Metal from Vulgar Metal. But that requires another whole Story.)
Finally, from Eastern Handred Scattered Isles coming Great Martial Artist Darja Danad with Small Barge and some of his disciples from Indeward Isle, he became Hero when he fought against AntiDragons in War of Bolt and killed their Leader. But he knew War still not Ended, because Homeland of AntiDragon, Northeastern Isle of Sortum still existed, he needed Help of Land of Splendour for Attacking Great Sortum.
Chaos Army and Ignorance
Thalurzni let One of his Subject and Great Mystic Student Hua Lowchu become Devotee of Kabalt, because he soon understood that is the Another Persona of HeenMaroun. He sent off the Army of Kralorela to Jankley Bore and Sha Yar Valley, though he didn't trust his Auxiliaries.
But at last, AntiDragons enslaved Thalurzni, because he never permitted himself escaping from his Furnace, his Masterpiece even encircled by AntiDragon Horde by Treachery of his Subject. He hid in his own Furnace instead of abandoning his Great Work. Neither AntiDragons could break nor work his Furnace for lacking such Art or Skill. Instead of that, they brought it into their deepest Dungeon of Irenamalash, Home of Babadi and Taktari, they had a hard time trying to open or break it, but they could not succeed. (Plutarch: Yelm was confined to Underworld in Kralorelan Version, but he
