While all the old kingdoms had various official garments for their rulers, Aexia was unique in that rather than a more traditional crown, its kings wore masks. This wasn’t all that unusual in Aexia, of course, as all adherents to the native religion wore masks in sunlight. However, the king’s mask was quite distinctive. The mask was forged of solid gold, it’s facial features sculpted to resemble the kingdom’s founder. According to legend, the first king possessed a sort of immortality, and each subsequent ruler was just another expression of him.
