Emperor of Kooluk, Julius was the grandfather of Corselia. The conservative nature of his reign had contributed to the political instability within the empire. As such, the strength of the nation, emanating from Graska, has been steadily decaying for quite some time.
By the time Kyril and his party had made their way to the Imperial City of Graska, Julius was already forcibly transformed into a fishman by Iskas and soon died due to exhaustion from the process.
