Who Will Be the Next Amarr Emperor? Experts Debate

By Svarthol

Opinions vary widely over who among the Five Heirs will be the next Amarr Emperor or Empress. From the liberal and outreaching personality of Doriam Kor-Azor to what some have called the militaristic expansionist views of Jamyl Sarum, whoever assumes the throne of Amarr will doubtless have long-lasting and profound effect reaching far beyond the borders of Amarr space.
