Mesaraz Avevin Tasikhe was the Emperor of Carthak during the 430s HE and perhaps earlier. The emperor was the older brother of Prince Apodan, as well as a slew of other brothers. Although Mesaraz was a previous emperor before his nephew, Ozorne, it is unknown if Ozorne directly succeeded him or if there was another emperor between their two reigns.
In his youth, Mesarez attended the Imperial University of Carthak's School of Law. He was made Emperor before he could finish his certification, but his education was evident in the laws he made during his reign.
During his reign, the emperor had survived at least nine assassination attempts.
Emperor Mesaraz originally had many heirs that would succeed him. His nephew, Ozorne Tasikhe, was born far away from the throne, as Prince Apodan was likely a much younger brother. Ozorne had many male cousins as well as uncles who preceded him. Over the course of a few years, many of the possible successors died, although not necessarily under mysterious circumstances. By 438 HE, Ozorne was third in line for the Carthaki throne, after the emperor's presumed sons, Prince Mikrom, and Prince Stiloit.
Personality and traits
The emperor had ivory skin like his successor, plump, and had dull eyes.
