Ambassador: First Impression

Ambassador

Tomb Raider



After a fortnight I was at last granted an audience with her majesty, Himiko of Yamatai. I must confess, she is unlike any woman I have ever encountered. Beautiful, yet inscrutable; calculating, even. She surrounds herself with her Priestesses of the Sun. No men attend her, save the general of her armies. When I met with her alone, I came to realize that she is not at all what she seems.After a fortnight I was at last granted an audience with her majesty, Himiko of Yamatai.

I was sent by my lord to spy on her... to assess the strength of her armies. But now I feel she is the one assessing me.

My lord has perhaps underestimated the threat of Yamatai. Though I cannot gauge the true strength of her Stormguard, I cannot deny a powerful feeling that the Sun Queen should not be trifled with.

An ancient scroll. It appears to be the recollection of an Imperial Chinese Ambassador's visit to the court of the Sun Queen.
