The Yallvus Revolution (previously known as the Yallvus War Against Oppression and also known as the Yallvus Civil War) is the last war to occur solely on Ucharpli. For many years, the Altus Dynasty had maintained control over the Vaikan, managing to conquer the whole world. As the people realized the terrible oppression they have gone through, they rebelled, eventually overthrowing Altus Banya and replacing him with Rustiagon Dralla. The war lasted for twenty-five years.

Records of the Yallvus Revolution are sparse, and most information relating had only been discovered by Rustiagon Karalius after his expedition to learn of the history of the Vaikan's previously forgotten homeworld. As such, many of the exact details had been heavily mythologized, and their events had been reinterpreted across various holy texts of Jamzezism.


After conquering the entire world, Altus Banya had built a rather oppressive society to Vaikan standards. Banya created a strict code of chivalry which on paper was meant to enforce an honorable lifestyle, but in reality, was subject to a lot of exploitation and abuse. It allowed for Banya's enforcers to arrest virtually anyone on any sort of pretext to hold them as political prisoners.

Massacre of Korsza

Major riots would start breaking out from being under such oppression, most notable the Massacre of Korsza . Korsza was a city in northeastern Yallvus; the slavery was not as intense, but members of the Royal Peacekeepers would open fire on any suspicious activity. A Vaikan worker named Ferir Okidit had accidentally insulted a soldier who was out of uniform, mistaking him for another worker. Immediately, the soldier drew his firearm, shooting and killing him. Other nearby Vaikan citizens became outraged and began to attack the soldier, but soon, other peacekeepers would show up and fire upon the angry mob. Sixteen Vaikan were killed and thirty were injured. However, this did not put an end to the Viakan riots. They were only beginning.

Foundings of the Krayhan's Retaliation

Several years after the incident at Korsza, a Vaikan peacekeeper named Rustiagon Dralla realized that the tyranny could not continue. Altus Banya would never let him resign as a soldier, so he faked his own death. Dralla's body was thrown into the ocean, but only minutes later, he emerged on the coast of the small port town, Rotundum which was several miles away from the city of Yallvus. Dralla began to rally the locals and even convinced a few of the local peacekeepers in efforts to raise an army. Dralla at the time was a Tier 3 soldier (this was the ranking system of the Yallvus army before the founding of the Drallan Federal Monarchy's military) which was the highest among those in Rotundum. The town would become the base for a new army known which was called Krayhan's Retaliation (KR). Rustiagon Dralla would become the leader of this army.

The Spark of War

After the KR had begun to grow in size, an event known as "The Spark of War" occurred. A KR member fired upon a soldier in the city of Trium. Immediately, the soldiers began to attack back, but rather than just fighting a mob, these soldiers were against an organized army led by Rustiagon Dralla. The city of Trium was captured successfully which led Altus Banya to send more troops against them.

The Regicide

After countless battles all across Yallvus, the final assault took place in the capital city itself. Rustiagon Dralla had negotiated some assistance from the Joperians. As Joper wanted their conquered lands back, they were more than willing to help. However, they had underestimated the amount of forces Altus Banya had amassed in the city. Dralla would go by himself to confront Banya. The exact events are not well-documented, but according to legend, Dralla fought him to the death in a one-on-one duel. When Altus Banya's body was tossed out the window on the highest floor of Kazel-hal, all of the fighting came to a sudden halt. When Dralla jumped from the window and glided down to the ground, he was greeted by rejoicing and celebration. Immediately, Dralla became king despite his reluctance to rule an entire country.


Hundreds of Vaikan from both sides were killed in the war, but the damage to cities was not too serious. Only the most fragile of buildings fell apart. Dralla declared that the Vaikan would never return to the dark times of the Altus Dynasty and wrote a constitution to address the past grievances. While he still allowed for absolute monarchies, he established that every Vaikan was entitled to certain freedoms.
