Omer’s Escape and Akish’s Mafia
The organized criminal ring of Akish and his followers give him an advantage over Omer.
Omer is warned in a dream to leave, and takes his family and those loyal to him to a place called Ablom, on the coast.
In Omer’s absence, Jared becomes king, and Akish marries Jared’s daughter.
Akish plots against king Jared, and murders him; Akish becomes the king in Jared’s stead.
Akish begins to be jealous of his son, so he locks him up in a dungeon, where he starves to death.
Nimrah, Akish’s other son, becomes angry with his father, so he gathers a group of people who leave the kingdom, and join Omer on the east coast.
Akish has more sons who live and rule in wickedness; a power struggle develops between Akish and his sons.
A horrific civil war ensues, and the gross majority of Akish’s kingdom is annihilated; the few survivors join Omer’s kingdom, which now expands back into Akish’s prior holdings.
