Kaine's lamenting

The story is about Zhao's crisis, from the death of Tou Jou, former King of Zhao due to poisoning, Prince Ka of Zhao trying to amend what his father ruined, Ri Boku's support of him, Kaku Kai finding ways to eliminate his rivals and the aftermath of a reversed verdict, revealing that the Prince was not the heir, but Prince Sen, a more sadistic persona than their father are.

And the infighting between Ri Boku Army and his allies and the Royalists was getting bloodier by the day, with the critics and their families killed.
