Long ago, during the reign of the Potato Bone, there existed a hierarchical system where the big ones occupied the top and the little ones remained at the bottom. In this era, injustice was rampant, and justice seemed to favor only the weak, the poor, and the ignorant.

In another continent, renowned for its wealth, power, and prosperity, there resided a nation that held great influence over the neighboring countries. The land and all its territories shone with glory, captivating the attention of businessmen from far and wide. To maintain their dignity and wealth, these traders had to divide their profits into three parts. One part belonged to themselves, while the remaining two parts went to King Shamsal.

King Shamsal, a formidable warrior and unparalleled fighter, had gained fame through his heroic acts. He had never been wounded in battle or competition, which only added to his legendary status. His bravery was such that he could fight for twelve consecutive hours without rest, earning him the admiration of even the most exhausted onlooker. He had the endurance to travel great distances without respite, covering seven batteries’ worth of distance before taking a brief pause, merely flicking away the mud and continuing his journey.

When King Shamsal displayed acts of bravery or valor, he seemed almost inhuman, akin to a demon. No matter how many opponents he faced, he effortlessly dispersed them, leaving only the fleeing survivors to save their lives. The oppressors of the land were hypocrites, ensuring that no other king could rival their oppressive rule, for King Shamsal was said to be a relative of the heavens. It was the kings who oppressed the poor.

King Shamsal would wake up to see a beautiful woman by his side, a gift sent to him by another king. This woman would be brought to him directly, potentially risking her life, as it could result in the loss of her kingdom and cause trembling in the realm. The poor were relentlessly taxed, and even the slightest offense committed by them in the city of Bindal would lead to their persecution, imprisonment, and sentencing for two or more years.

Meanwhile, in Bindal City, King Shamsal resided in his palace, but there was no stability to be found. The city’s barandars, responsible for the war equipment, were lacking oil, causing further unrest. Towards the southern end of Bindal City, there lived an old craftsman named Satyan, who was remarkably skilled in his profession despite his advanced age of a hundred and five years.

Satyan’s expertise lay in crafting war weapons, including those used in King Shamsal’s palace. There was no disagreement or animosity between Satyan and the king’s house. King Shamsal had never seen an elderly man like Satyan, nor did he pay much attention to him. Satyan employed around seventy-one young workers who lived under his guidance.

Thanks to the war equipment Satyan created, the kingdom exempted him from taxes. However, beyond the business of crafting weapons, Satyan was concerned about the prevailing corruption and violence. He witnessed the poor being subjected to unfair treatment, and it troubled him greatly. He believed that his son, Hatyan, possessed exceptional talents and abilities.

Hatyan, now twenty years old, had been passionate about hunting since his youth. He excelled in the hunting business and spent most of his time in the forest, rarely returning home before sunset. Hatyan had a unique gift bestowed upon him since the age of nine: he could engage in combat with large and wild animals, successfully killing them with his own hands.

This remarkable talent granted to Hatyan was seen as a divine blessing. He hid his extraordinary skills from the public eye, as the king had a custom of sending anyone with such a gift to be killed in

the name of sports. Hatyan knew that if his abilities were discovered, he would be forced to participate in the deadly sport of gladiatorial combat, where only the strongest and most skilled fighters survived.

Despite the risks, Hatyan couldn’t ignore the suffering and injustice plaguing the land. He saw how the poor were oppressed, and his heart burned with a desire to bring about change. He knew he had to find a way to use his unique talents for the greater good.

One fateful day, while Hatyan was deep in the forest on a hunting expedition, he stumbled upon a hidden gathering of rebels. They were a group of individuals who had grown tired of the corruption and tyranny of King Shamsal’s reign. They believed in freedom, justice, and equality for all.

Intrigued by their cause, Hatyan approached them cautiously. The rebels were initially wary of him, but when Hatyan shared his own experiences witnessing the suffering of the poor, they realized that he could be a valuable ally. They saw the potential in Hatyan’s exceptional combat skills and recognized the opportunity to use his abilities to fight for the oppressed.

Under the guidance of the rebels, Hatyan honed his skills further, learning not only to overpower his opponents but also to strategize and fight with purpose. He became adept at stealth, agility, and unarmed combat techniques, understanding that true strength came from within and that violence alone would not bring about lasting change.

As Hatyan trained and grew in both physical and mental prowess, the rebels unveiled their plan—a daring mission to expose the corruption of King Shamsal and rally the people against him. They believed that if the truth about the king’s oppressive rule was revealed, the people would rise up and demand justice.

The plan involved infiltrating the palace and obtaining evidence of King Shamsal’s wrongdoing—his unjust taxation, mistreatment of the poor, and the brutal sports that claimed the lives of many talented individuals. It was a dangerous undertaking that required precision, teamwork, and, above all, courage.

On the designated day, Hatyan and a small group of rebels, including skilled infiltrators and strategists, made their way into the palace. Hatyan’s exceptional combat skills proved invaluable as they encountered guards and obstacles along the way. With each obstacle overcome, their determination grew stronger.

Finally, they reached the inner chambers of the palace, where they found the evidence they sought—ledgers, letters, and secret documents detailing the king’s oppressive practices. Hatyan’s heart swelled with a mix of satisfaction and anger as he realized the extent of the king’s cruelty.

With the evidence secured, the rebels carefully made their way out of the palace, evading capture and staying one step ahead of the king’s forces. The information they possessed was a powerful weapon, and they knew they had to share it with the people.

Back in Bindal City, the rebels distributed flyers and spread the truth about King Shamsal’s oppressive reign. The people were shocked and outraged by the revelations, and a wave of dissent began to sweep across the land. The cries for justice grew louder, reaching even the ears of the previously indifferent elites.

Unable to ignore the public outcry, some of the kingdom’s nobles joined forces with the rebels, lending their support and influence to the cause. The rebellion grew in strength and numbers, and the momentum for change became unstoppable.

In the face of mounting opposition, King Shamsal’s rule started to crumble. The people, united in their desire for justice, overcame their fear and took to the streets, demanding an end to the tyranny. The once-mighty king, accustomed to unchallenged power, found himself isolated and vulnerable.

Realizing the tides had turned against him, King Shamsal

 attempted to flee the city, but he was captured by the rebels and brought to justice. The former gladiator, Hatyan, stood among the people, witnessing the dethronement of a tyrant and the birth of a new era.

In the aftermath, a council of representatives was established to govern the kingdom, ensuring that power was distributed fairly and that the voices of the people were heard. Hatyan, hailed as a hero and symbol of hope, continued to use his skills and influence to promote justice and equality, dedicating his life to rebuilding a better society.

The deadly sport of gladiatorial combat was abolished, replaced by peaceful athletic competitions that celebrated skill, teamwork, and the spirit of sportsmanship. Hatyan became an advocate for education, using his own experiences to promote equal access to knowledge and opportunities for all.

His journey from a talented but hidden gladiator to a catalyst for change inspired many, reminding them that true strength came not from physical prowess alone, but from the courage to stand up against injustice and fight for a better world. And so, Hatyan’s name became synonymous with hope and the triumph of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
