Imperial Ascent Alm

Alm was the central figure of the Deliverance, the Zofian liberation army that fought against the Rigelian Empire. But it was when Alm defeated Emperor Rudolf that he discovered a shocking truth.
It turned out that Alm was in fact Rudolf’s only son, making him the heir to the Rigelian throne! Duma’s Brand on Alm’s left hand proved his birthright.
With his dying breath, Rudolf made a final request of Alm: to seal away Duma, the erstwhile protector of the Empire who had become a fell god.
To grant his father’s last wishes, Alm donned the ancient armor of the Rigelian Empire—transforming him into a true warrior-king!
