The empress is the last ruler. When she became empress, she lost her pride, her beauty and her unborn son. Before becoming empress, she was beautiful and innocent. She was so beautiful that no one could look at her without tears flooding their eyes. But in the empire she lost her beauty and she was blinded when her tears turned to glass over her eyes. She pretends to rule the Lostians, the inhabitants of the The Lost Empire. The Lostians pretend to worship and obey her. Deep in their hearts they have the vague hope that they need her to regain their empire, their lost power and peace.
