Check out this announcement about new leadership limits in Agrelos
Deutschland was late because he didn't believe one of the Thunderlanders who came at his door and tried to convince him to gather. It wasn't meeting time, and he was not going to be forced to come out of his home, thank you very much. Until the messenger said that it was Laika who was holding the meeting, his interest piqued and he did not waste much time brushing past the messenger and making his way to the original meeting place.
As he looked up, he was caught in a sudden memory. It had been a long time since he had stood up like that. He didn't think of it much before, but he remembered how he was announced to become the next leader. Star Council had to intervene, and the spirit who did the announcement couldn't even pronounce his name right. If he had known what would have followed from accepting that promotion, perhaps he would have never taken it.
"What's this, Laika?" He grunted as he sat down heavily, tapping his tail against the ground as he waited.
