The Abello-Solak Compact


When relations between the Mandarin castes and the Imperial Family first grew strained, various leading families among the Mandarins met to discuss options. Some argued for rapproachment. Others, notably the Abello scribe caste (3rd Rank), argued for open resistance. As civil unrest split the casts from one another, the two militant castes, the Abellate and the Solaki soldier caste (7th Rank) met secretly to discuss terms.


The end result of these negotiations was the Abello-Solak Compact. Both castes thought they could use the other and ensconce themselves as the rulers of the new order. The compact lasted barely a century before counter-revolutionary among the other Mandarin castes restored the Mandarin caste system.


The Mandarin age has its own stresses, quite different from the stresses inherent in the power struggle between the Mandarins and the Imperial Family. For while the Mandarins now rule completely, they struggle among themselves for premecy.


The Compact officially fell apart when the Solaki betrayed the Abellates at the Battle of Kari-Nar. None the less, there are still forces among both Solaki and Abellate who remember that when they were united, they controlled the Hegemony. A semi-secret cabal of Abellates and Solaki continue to follow the laws of the compact. What influence these permanent revolutionaries have on the leaders of their castes is unknown.
