First I must say that Terra Incoginta's musings on emperor Thalurzni are utterly fascinating. The text is dense and hard to penetrate, but if you haven't read these posts before, make the effort, it's well worth it!

I don't think this is quite correct: the sun never disappeared from the eastern sky (at least this is the case for Vithela, but I think it is valid for Kralorela as well). Some easterners say that the sun changed somehow at the Dawn, but it was not a return from long absence.

According to Vithelan mythology, mortals have been subject to aging and death since the Creation Cycle, it is not something externally inflicted. I think this goes for Kralorela as well, with their emphasis on continuity.
