Planar War Chronicles
Not inherently evil
Empress is basically the leader of the Elder Faction. A faction that views all races both humane and monstrous as equal and free. She fights to unite all races as one and give all races true equality and freedom. Because of that she has a high price on her head and the Elder Faction fights alone. If one day she can unite the races she dreams of being not just called “Empress” but truly being one.
