Matile Mala, once the most powerful empire in the black continent of Abengoni, is slipping slowly into decadence, and becoming more and more vulnerable to aggression from the nations and tribes it once dominated.

Imaro was, his name -- Imaro of the Ilyassai, Imaro the outcast, Imaro the legendary hero of the jungle continent.
