Amarr Emperorship Heirs, YC118
All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt
The Six Heirs to the Amarr Emperorship
There are six royal families within the Amarr Empire, each headed by the prospective Emperor/Empress. These individuals are termed heirs and must go through a rigorous selection process to choose a new head of state, culminating with the championship race, which involves citizens of the Empire. The winner succeeds to the throne, while the losers must commit ritual suicide to 'clean the slate', so to speak.
|File:Heirs ardishapur.png|| Yonis Ardishapur - Male
The Ardishapur Family are known for their devotion to the Amarrian religion and Yonis is no exception. He was opposed to Jamyl Sarum's rule for her violating the Shathol'Syn, though he was forced to bide his time under her until he had an opportunity to strike. Intelligent and cunning, Yonis is skilled at turning a losing situation to his favor.
|File:Heirs sarum.png||Merimeth Sarum - Male
The youngest of the heirs, Merimeth has been forced to stew in the shadow of his aunt, Jamyl Sarum, while she was Empress. Now that she is out of the way, he will use all of his intelligence and connections to see his ambitions for the throne fulfilled. If he becomes Emperor, he is likely to push the Sarum legacy of leading Amarr to war and conquest over all who would stand against it.
|File:Heirs tashmurkon.png||Catiz Tash-Murkon - Female
Head of the Tash-Murkon Family, who replaced the Khanid Family. Catiz is the wealthiest person in New Eden and a master of business, but her Udorian ancestry sours her reputation with conservatives. If she becomes Empress she will likely move to expand Amarr's industrial and technological might, but at the cost of many of its traditions. To the Tash-Murkon this is no loss; the old ways have held Amarr back for far too long.
|File:Heirs kador.png||Uriam Kador - Male
More Emperors have come from the Kador Family than any other, and the Kador Family represents the grandeur and majesty of Amarr of old. Uriam is an underdog after his name was tarnished by his unauthorized and unsuccessful invasion of the Federation. Down but not out, his keen intellect and silver tongue may win him allies from unexpected places.
|File:Heirs korazor.png||Aritcio Kor-Azor - Male
The Kor-Azor Family are known for being moderates in Amarrian politics, and Aritcio embodies this trait more literally than most. Once a wild, cruel man, he was flayed alive by the Speakers of Truth for his transgressions. He now has a nobility to him that few could have foreseen, but his inner demon remains. Hero or villain, Aritcio could save the Empire... or destroy it.
|File:Heirs khanid.png||Garkeh Khanid - Male
The Khanid Family were replaced by Tash-Murkon after Garkeh Khanid refused to commit Shathol'Syn and seceded from Amarr during the succession of Heideran VII. After years of tense relations with newly-founded Khanid Kingdom, Empress Jamyl I invited Garkeh back to the Privy Council in YC111. Though he was expected to only act in an advisory role, Garkeh was shockingly confirmed as a legitimate successor. Still seen as a heretic by many of the most conservative elements of the Empire, Garkeh is likely to cause immense strain in Amarr if he becomes Emperor.
