I put Other- Revive the Mahid only if it is truly a revival, a rebirth of what the true purpose of the clan was, to be the best and to protect and serve the Imperator.
I agree with Blue Coyote. ONLY IF it is a true revival. with none of the horrible and sinister practices that were the norm for the Mahid for so long.
The idea of a disciplined dedicated loyal, Mahid without the cruelty, and lack of emotion appeals to me. I think it is the idea of all the best qualities of humans combined with that focus that interests me. It isn't something one finds in the real world very often, although I am sure some in our military strive for it.
A major story arc of 'Eclipse Court' is redemption, and Minis is driven to revive that which is good from Arko's history. The Mahid need this. Presumably, before the last several generations of poisoned Aans, the Mahid were more than they became under Kurkas. Minis needs to resurrect their good qualities, and help the survivors heal.After all, the Mahid *are* his cousins. They are his family, and Minis has discovered that he does have family feeling. Also an understanding of what was done *to* them leads to an understanding of how they did it, and what the consequences were for those actions. Go for it Minis. It needs doing.
