Bytra performed a sharp turn to her left, creating an ash cloud out of her fallen enemies and reliving her memories as an Emperor Beast.
After evolving and learning the Forgemastering arts of the Raiju bloodline, Bytra had gone to put them to the test against the first and the greatest Ruler of Flames, Ripha Menadion.
She had lost in both experience and skill, but not in talent nor love for Forgemastering. The two master artisans admired each other's creations, so Menadion offered Bytra to become her apprentice.
The Raiju accepted and soon, thanks to Menadion's teachings and her own talent, Bytra became the 4th Ruler of the Flames. It was a highly coveted title that identified her as the best Forgemaster of her generation, but the number one spot overall still belonged to Menadion.
Bytra had lived in her tower and watched her work with Menadion's Fury long enough to understand the reason why she was incapable of surpassing the first Ruler of the Flames.
