About

The Father of Kabal is a once per era supreme master of the land of Kabal. The father is not selected, nor elected, instead the father is chosen at birth. This divine right is believed to be granted by the creator of Anarkand, Emperor Radamik. The new Father of Kabal will be born on the cusp of a new era by the current Mother of Kabal, his sister will also be born on this day to the current mother of Kabal.

Upon the birth of a new mother and father of the union, the old mother and father will begin to lose their essence and death will be brought upon them within the next fifteen to twenty Earth years. This allows the new mother and father to be cared for by the old, and to learn of the values of the Union of Kabal before their parents passing into the void.

The birthing of the new mother and father is a highly celebreated and revered event amongst the people of Kabal. The event is huge and the focal point of the entire union. Millions of Kaballans will take to the capital to witness the event and to celebrate the new mother and fathers arrival.

The job of the old mother and father is to raise their replacements in the traditions of Kabal, to energise them, and to prepare for the new era.

Biology

Kaballan biology was once very different. It was more pure. For years they enjoyed the luxury of the Red Hex above them, which delivered clean air, reliable energy and weather systems, like the rest of the world is used to. That all changed in 10th era when war broke out between the lesser nations of Kabal ( as they were known before they formed a union ) and an alliance that contained Marrakis, Murdu, and Dumatra. More information on the war can be found by visiting the Union of Kabal on the interactive map.

The war lasted some 70 Earth years and resulted in extensive damage to the Red Hex above the lesser Kaballan nations. This damage resulted in the single biggest tragedy in Anarkand's history, resulting in the deaths of over 100 million inhabitants between all the nations. The fallout from this war, known as the Sona War, meant that the physiological capability of the Kaballan people was heavily affected. The air was impure, pollution became a major issue, the weather systems that they had been dependant on for centuries had began to fail, and even the most basic of lifes requirements, such as breathing, became difficult.

The Marakai, who were sworn enemies of the Kaballans, performed one of the greatest u-turns in Anarkian history by aiding their enemies. They helped restore parts of the Red Hex, afforded the Kaballan people much needed food and water, clothing, engineers and builders, to try to save the country from complete annihilation.

The Empire of Radamis also played a huge role in redeveloping the country by encouraging the forming of a union of lesser states, ( now, The Union of Kabal ), which now no longer contains any individual countries. This union has surpassed all expectations. The Radamis Empire aided in the development of breathing apparatus for each of the inhabitants, and began building huge pipelines and structures across Kaballan lands that would filter clean, non-polluted air into the country, allowing the people to thrive once more. Of course, this 'kindness' shown by Radamis simply guarantees the empire have a powerful ally in the region against the Marakai and the 12e Alliance.

Due to the issues surrounding air and pollution, the Kaballans now wear permanent breathing apparatus from birth.

Genetics & Reproduction

The Father of Kabal is unique when compared to other Kaballan inhabitants. He is genetically stronger, is usually around 2-3 foot taller than his counterparts, develops a strong resistance to the failing Red Hex above the land.

Kaballans are genetically tainted due to the Sona war. They are getting stronger as the genome develops and changes through the generations. Kabal's population is slowly but surely developing strong immunity to the various pollutants in their water and in their air. This has resulted in discourse about the potential threat from the Union of Kabal in the future, and is a growing concern amongst 12e Alliance members.

Habitats & Ecology

The Father of Kabal will never leave the unions lands. First of all for safety reasons, but secondly due to his importance in Kaballan life.

Kaballans are very loyal to the mother and father of the union. Very rarely do they leave the area, although diplomats, explorers, and other political leaders for the country will travel outside. Many Kaballans live in fear of the outside world as they are, ironically, unsure that they will survive the changes to cleaner air, cleaner environments, cleaner water, and stronger RED Hex components.

Growth rate & stages

The father grows up to 10 foot tall. His strength is unmatched by fellow Kaballans. Much like humans, there is a short infantile stage, leading to pre-adolescence, adolescence, then adulthood.
The father will look to reproduce before the end of the era. He will know when it is time, as his essence begins to ebb away.

Social structure

The father will remain with the mother from birth till death. They will bear no children until the end of the era. The children they will birth are one female and one male. Quite how this happens, and how this is guaranteed is unknown, although Kaballan beliefs state this on the divine will of the Emperor.

Geographic origin & distribution

The Father of Kabal will live all of his 12,000 or so years in the Union of kabal, and will die there too.
