Goldhaven had suffered under the rampage of Dukes seeking power since its accidental founding a millennia ago. The people had had enough. Travel had brought visitors from the far reaches of Caenyr with new and strange ideas of justice and fairness. A cabal of lesser houses, wealthy merchants, thieves guild leaders and others with voices too loud to be in existence without change formed in the slums in 906AL. Slowly, so very slowly with great losses they infiltrated the power centres of Goldhaven, placing hand-picked people in situations of authority. It was a precarious process; should even one be corrupted by the lure of power then all would be lost. But all held true and the glorious day came when the silent revolution occurred. In a single day and night the Dukes were taken captive, the senior army officers imprisoned and a new rule declared over Goldhaven. The rule of the Triad: the Triad was composed of representatives of the main factions in the city. Each had an equal voice and two of the three were needed to agree to pass any ruling.

Ishtar came from a wealthy family but had been sequestered deep in the slums to keep her safe from the wandering eyes of the lecherous Dukes and their entourage. She had learned hunger and need and also the caring and sharing of hearts united in pain and misery. There had been times when she had eaten stolen bread shared by more skilled hands and times when she had been the skilled one and brought home fruit to be given to the waifs of the streets. She had learned Love in its truest form and followed the goddess Verinia with all her heart. The day of the Revolution had seen her snatched from the streets, she had been certain she would be sold as a slave or lose a hand. Instead she was taken to the centre of Goldhaven and proclaimed ruler along with two others. This was her chance to bless Goldhaven with the practices of Verinia, love: beauty and happiness. But her past was not forgotten and the assumption that once a thief always a thief remains in the minds of many.

After the events surrounding the explosion of Bandeth Farok ibn Barech went mad. He abused his control of the armed forces of Goldhaven to attempt to seize control of the city. Declaring martial law he ordered the arrest of all foreigners and impounding of their ships. Those who resisted were summarily executed. His co-rulers were also declared enemies of the state and warrants issued for their arrest or execution.

The people of Goldhaven and sections of the military revolted against this coup. Ishtar was captured briefly but freed by a small band of rogues who infiltrated the palace. She was wounded and close to death when reunited with Dariyus. They married in secret as she recovered from her wounds against all odds. Ultimately a desperate General slid a dagger into the ear of Farok as he bent over a map of the desert planning the invasion of Tendril. The dagger was then used to slit the assassin's own throat.

Dariyus has been declared sole regent of Goldhaven and Ishtar, his consort. She supports him from behind the veils of the palace and is rumored to already be pregnant with an heir.
