King Cedric the Just but Fair was a lover of the arts. He commissioned elaborate spectacles at his Palace, often with himself as the main performer. He particularly enjoyed shadow puppetry. When not on stage, Cedric introduced several harsh and unorthodox legal reforms. During his reign, over seventy members of the aristocracy were executed -- three for treason, one for comspiracy, and sixty-eight for misidentifying the animal or thing he was depicting.
