Leaning his head to the left, he lazily peers to where the road takes a steep dive. The city of Mimosa called by those within the empire as the jewel of the known world. It stretches across a land full of hills and peculiar jagged rocks for 6,487 square miles. Throughout these soil rich lands various types of inhabitants have come allowing it to have the largest diverse population within the empire. The city was shaped to appear as a sun, to represent both the sun on it flag and the fact that it is the location of the Sun God Temple, Becrux. Two large walls appear within the city splitting it into three districts. The outer part of the city is made mostly of the slums and the open market. Bleak grey buildings rise awkwardly as weeds, the only decent looking ones found closer towards the main roads so as not to disgust visitors. The middle sanctum of the city flows out of the shabbiness of the slums, a refreshing mirage of idealism. Large houses bloom in mirror reflection in perfect intervals, as people dress the same and walk with a glass like smile. Clean streets welcome merchants to waste gold on wares made from copper and sold for pennies. A few miles away from the second wall the land suddenly takes a dive and forms a large crater. The crater is sixty miles long, which legend dictates was created when a heavenly object fell years ago. Built upon the crater with pride are large structures of marble and gold. Here nobles stroll out waiting for the lowering head of the peasants, as they spend lavishly for simple items. Powerful merchants, artisans, and public servants reside within the inner sanctum watching the brush stroke view with plaster smiles. In the direct center a citadel lurks in the shape of a sun, and shines like gold with brazen walls. Here one can find the Temple of Becrux, the House of Common, The Judgment Hall, Laws and Customs, and other government sanctified organizations. Orion watches the scenery with annoyance and caution. “The more dazzling the serpent the more dangerous it poison.” He grins wickedly and marches into a nearby carriage.
