The infamous revolt was started by a man named Clay. This great soldier and member of the Southern Mtn Corps. He was also a charismatic leader and eloquent speaker and was able to convince many of his fellow soldiers that after the execution of their failed General, Maha Sparna, that this was their chance to rebel against the decades of corruption at the hands of the Darja Clan's nobles and ruling class.
After months of fighting nobles and those soldiers still loyal to them, Clay emerged in victory. By the spring of 452, He commanded not only the newly reformed and renamed Liberated Mountain Corps, but also was the leader of the whole Darja Clan. How the rest of the Kingdom of New Armes was going to react to this sudden change in leadership was soon to be put to the test.
